PC recognizes USB wired Mouse, but Mouse stops working

I put together a rig about 2 years ago and i had to replace the MoBo because of an accident i had with it, everything seemed to work fine. I had an old P/S 2 Mouse connected to it, and I decided it was time to upgrade to a USB wired Mouse. So I bought one and it doesn't work properly.

Now here's the problem (Windows 7 64bit OS):
-It installs the software and i'm able to use it for a short time (around 20-30 seconds and the red laser at the bottom lights up), then it finalizes the installation and my mouse goes dead; but the sound it makes when a new USB connection has been plugged in, continues to loop every 10 seconds or so.
I have tried googling to find similar problems others may have had, but no luck. I also tried rebooting and re-installing the USB Hubs in the Device Manager and the problem still persists.

I will also like to note:
- My USB ports are working
-The mouse is plugged in correctly
- I have my Keyboard and printer connected and they are working without any problems.
- I have connected the mouse to a laptop running Windows XP and it works fine
- I tried connecting other mice to my PC and i get the same issue.

I believe it's more of a technical issue with Windows Software.

I'm open to suggestions, any help would be appreciated...because at this point my frustration level is over 9,000!

  1. Have you tried setting bios to "Legacy USB Mouse/KB", or it would at least say Legacy ? Unplug and re-plug mouse after setup is done. Ultimately, maybe mouse was not made for Win7 or Win7 64bit has issues with that specific mouse. You can check ASUS website for chipset & USB driver updates.
  2. Thanks for your reply, Cyberat. However, I found out what was wrong with it.

    When the mouse was trying to install, another driver from a program called MotionJoy was trying to re-install its drivers and assumed the Mouse identity, causing it to disconnect.

    I found this while navigating through Devices and Printers in the Windows Menu, in case anyone else is having these problems.
    -Delete MotionJoy drivers from the Device Manager.
