    Randomly when im using the computer, my mouse (its an Optical Logitech Mx310) freezes for up to 20-30 seconds for (seemingly) no reason, bought it like 2 years ago, no problems til about a month ago, and at that time it only froze now and then for 2-3 seconds at a time, still does that, exept now with the occasional half minute freeze.

    When the mouse freezes, the computer itself runs fine, e.g music still plays and web pages keep loading.



    Any suggestions?

    Does the light go out when the mouse freezes? If so that means that the connection on the mouse is going bad.

    If not, have you tried unplugging the mouse and using a standard PS/2 mouse or USB to PS/2 adapter to uninstall and reinstall all the drivers for it?
