So you have 2 USB devices - a fan and your mouse. These are in use whenever you are on your laptop, is that right? Is the laptop connected to the wall or running on battery power when the problem occurs? Or both?

i called logitech over the summer and they gave me a new mx518ree ut the new one doesnt work at all, it just turns on for a second and shuts off, but it works fine on my bros laptop, so i dont know if its my laptop or i need to update drivers or whatever, any ideas?

Yes, I also have a fan plugged into the USB, my laptop overheats a lot. I think it actually may be my laptop because occasionally my fan stops working also, and then if I switch USB ports, it starts. But I figured that to be because it is on all the time.
It cold be that you have "draind" the usb port and that it has a problem supplying power for the usb devices. You posted that the fan allso is giving trouble some times.
See if you have a friend with an active usb hub that you can borrow. This is a usb hub that connects to the computer but it also has a connecttion to the power so that it supplies its own power. The different devices that you connect to it get the power from the hub and not the computer. This way the computer only really needs to suply power for the data to the hub.

Just make sure that the hub has its own power.

Also, today I tried gaming with the external fan unplugged, and just the mouse, and i experienced no problems at all, so that may indeed be the solution, but i cant be sure until more time passes by, because it may be that its just a good day for the mouse, because thats happened before too.

Give it a day or two and then you will have a better idea.
