USB Mouse keeps cutting out.

5 posts in this topic

I have the USB IntelliMouse Optical and on WinXP it keeps cutting out, the light on the bottom goes out and I cant use it, this happens in all ports.

I'm on a P4 2.4Ghz system with the Intel 845 Chipset drivers installed. And it happens at all speeds :/

Its really annoying it keep going out, can someone please help? :)

happened to me a few weeks ago. my mouse was almost 3 years old... heard that the life expectancy on those things was 2-3 years. anyway, i picked up the MS intellimouse wireless explorer... KICKS ASS! get one.

oh, but pick up a recharger and some batteries too... my batts die every two weeks.... then again... i'm on the system a good 15 hours a day.

Mine did the same thing. The original USB IntelliMouse Optical has a known short in it. The short gets worse with normal use and will eventually kill the mouse. If you contact Microsoft support they might replace it for you. They have replaced mine and a few other people I know. Maximum PC had an article on it a couple of months ago.
