|I need to know if my mouse is broken or if my usb drivers/ports are compromised.|
My mouse is a mx510 (from logitech) and recently for no reason it keeps shutting off while connected via usb port. Sometimes it comes back up and sometimes i need to plug it in again for it to continue to work.
When it shuts off there is a 'USB has failed to recognize whatever is plugged in' error that pops up.
I have scanned with an anti-virus which came back negative. Spybot/ad-aware tool and so forth and these come up negative.
A curious thing is when i plug my usb mouse into the ps/2 addon (its from logitech) and plug that in the ps/2 port, it works completely fine and doesn't shut off at all. So could the usb part of the mouse be fried.. but the ps/2 part be ok? This makes no sense since the usb part plugs into the ps/2 addon and works through it and is ok.
I have tried multiple USB ports and they all connect/disconnect with the mouse. I have set it so the computer will not turn off mouse if losing power and have installed a new powersupply unit just in case (it was screwing up with old powersupply too)
What kind of drivers do I need to reinstall for my usb? (nothing else that is plugged into the usb malfunctions, except the mouse)
Can i get some ideas guys? :\
