    there is something wrong with my USB mouse; it stops working alot and it works when i move the wire a little
    i think there is something wrong with wire
    can it be fixed ?

    and this happened to me like 40 times but with other things like earphones, mics, headsets, anything that can be plugged to a Computer/Mobile phone

    wires can break - i have stopped using cheaper / smaller wire mice now and use a wireless as i was also getting constant cable issues.

    depends on where its broken and if you can get access to the connector - mine tend to break near the USB plug - and so not really fixable

    one last thing
    my mouse is a trust product (probably never heard of it)
    the box said it has a 5 year warranty
    and trust.com says it has a 3 year warranty
    is a broken wire supported ???

    same all around Europe.
    but a 5 year warranty mouse doesn't sound that bad
