Hi guys, I'm faced with a problem my minimal understanding of technology cannot make sense of. My Alienware AW958 mouse randomly stopped working, mid-use while playing a game. Every time I plug it in I get the error "Device descriptor failed". I tried reinstalling the drivers from Dell's website, it didn't change anything. The port I used works fine with a different mouse, the AW958 works fine on a different computer. My mousepad still works both with the mouse plugged in and unplugged. I've used the mouse for about a year with this laptop until now and about 8 months on a different one before that. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Laptop: ROG GX502G Zephyrus S
CPU: i7-9750H
GPU: RTX2070
OS Windows 10 64-bit
