My mouse keeps disconnecting (like, completely losing power and everything. it even makes the disconnect and reconnect noise) and I have absolutely no idea why. I've tried googling around but have not found any useful answers. I tried going into device manager to see if I was allowing my computer to cut off power to the usb ports to save power, but that was all unchecked. This problem happened every once in a while with my keyboard a long time ago, with completely random frequency (sometimes 5 times in 10 minutes, and sometimes 1 time in an hour). But now its happening to my mouse insanely frequently. When I'm in-game counter-strike:source, it happens every time i touch the mouse. I'm thinking of clean installing windows 7 and have been for a while because of unrelated things, so that's probably my next step. Just gotta wait to obtain the funds for win7. I've tried other USB ports to no avail, and the M+KB are the only things plugged in to the USB ports.
Thanks in advance for your help. Sorry if I sound like I'm ranting or my grammar isn't perfect, I'm pretty frustrated right now haha.
My system (home-built)(not really sure what to include here):
OS: Windows Vista Home Edition SP1
Mouse: Logitech G500
Keyboard: Dynex (dont even know if it has a model number, just a cheap keyboard)
If you need anything else, please let me know.
