    I have a Toshiba L505d laptop that I use with my Logitech wireless mouse. I have had this setup for quite a while. Last week I noticed my mouse was starting to lag, or get stuck (as if there was a problem with the connection between the mouse and receiver. Well tonight it just completely quit on me.

    Here's the mystery. I was able to get it briefly working again by removing my USB headset (which has been working fine) and plugging my mouse receiver into it. This, however, only worked for a short amount of time and went right back to not working. When I moved the receiver back to it's original plug and plugged my headset back in IT no longer worked as well. I have tried only having one of the two plugged in at a time as well as switching the plugs but they haven't worked since.

    I haven't changed or downloaded anything new.

    I have tried clearing all of the USB data out of the Device Manager forcing Windows to reinstall the drivers for the usb items. This, again, only worked for a few mins and then it went right back to not working. Windows does recognize when I plug/unplug an item from the usb ports because it will make the sounds with the laptop's onboard speakers, it just seems that no data is transferred. It does also recognize when I plug my mouse receiver in because my mouse touchpad stops working until I unplug the receiver.

    I have no idea why this is happening but I use my mouse and headset all the time, I really hate the touchpad because I bump it while I type (This message took a while to write because I kept "clicking" on stuff.)

    Please help.

    EDIT: Ok, well I seemed to get my headphones working again. I went under Audio in the control panel and for some reason the default sound was set to my speakers. I set it back to my headphones and they now work. I then plugged my mouse receiver back in and my mouse worked for about 3 seconds. I unplugged it and am now looking at the Mouse settings. My only options are the Touchpad or Other Pointing Device. When I have the receiver plugged in the driver it says it's using is "HID-Compliant Mouse" and that the device is working properly. However, under the Device Settings tab the only one showing is my Touchpad.

    It sounds as though your mouse's USB dongle has died and is killing the USB port until you re-install it.

    Ya, I've come to the realization that something is wrong with the mouse, so I just ordered a new one off of Amazon. Thanks.
