    Hi everybody, I am having problems with my mouse. It is an optical mouse which is connected to the computer by usb. If i leave it for any longer than two to three minutes then the cursor stops and i can't move it unless i disconnect the usb from the computer and then reconnect it. Does anybody have any idea what is going on? thanks for reading

    I've never come across this problem before, but I'd say there's a fault with your mouse.
    Is it a new one or have you had it for a while?
    If new I'd bring it back and get a replacement, not the same model if possible unless it's a known brand.
    If you've had it a while maybe it's just developed this fault so replacing it would be your best bet.
    Hope this helps.

    before splashing out...
    check for malware
    test the driver/look for updates
    try a different port

    thanks for the quick reply guys, it's appreciated, I tried everything you said but unfortunatly it seems to be the mouse, oh well another trip to the computer shop. You know your spending to much time and money at the cmputer shop when the salesman knows your first name. Click here to enlarge
