Unstable USB, mouse, keyboard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey people, I've been having a small problem on and off for almost a year now, but lately its gone too far. On my last computer, my Logitech MX Revolution mouse would lag or freeze in sequence once in a while. I also found out my USB ports were turning on and off rapidly sometimes, like some sort of computer panic attack. I couldn't keep a USB flashdrive plugged in or it would make those USB recognition sounds non-stop. I had a G15 keyboard, with USB ports on it, and when I plugged my mouse to the keyboard ports it would work flawlessly. The mouse would also work better when I plugged it into the tower's USB ports. I recently upgraded my keyboard to a Logitech Dinovo Edge, wireless keyboard. Everything was the same until I got the new computer. I thought the problem was with the motherboard itself, and the USB ports on its rear panel, since every other USB ports were working fine. So I got a new cpu and mobo, AMD Phenom 2 955, Asus M4N82 Deluxe mobo, plugged all my other hardware to it, including a new tower. But now the USB ports are having problems no matter which one I use (tower, expansions, or mobo panel). On top of all things, my keyboard (Dinovo Edge) stops responding at random time, and sometimes it keeps pressing the same letter continuously like a malfunction, and will keep pressing the letter even if I turn the keyboard off. This didn't happen on my old computer. This new keyboard problem is also very frequent, an everyday thing. It also seems to happen the most when I play the game Crysis Warhead.

    Troubleshooting so far: Tried several USB ports for my keyboard (same problem). Tried operating with a PS2 connection mouse (still had problems), Tried plugging my USB flashdrive in different USB ports (same problem everywhere).

    Is this a Vista related issue? Is it a 64bit related issue?

    SPECS:

    Old Computer:
    AMD Phenom 2.3ghz Quad Core
    XFX 750a SLI Motherboard
    Corsair DDR2 800mhz RAM 4x 2gigs each
    XFX GTX280 videocard (added another in SLI later in the year)
    Auzentech X-Fi Prelude 7.1 soundcard

    New Computer:
    AMD PhenomII 955 Black Edition 3,2ghz Quad Core
    Asus M4N82 Deluxe 980a Motherboard
    Thermaltake Spedo Advance Computer case
    Ultra Chilltech CPU cooler
    (Same Hardware for the rest)
