Question Mouse and keyboard disconnect and reconnect while gaming


Oct 9, 2016
Today I was playing some games, when I noticed my mouse disconnecting every couple minutes. I first suspected the cable as the culprit, but then I realized that sometimes even my keyboard was being disconnected at the same time. Either my mouse or both the mouse and the keyboard kept disconnecting every couple minutes just to reconnect in a few seconds.

I'd guess the issue comes from the usb drivers or something, but I really don't know how to test that out.

The issue was not game-specific, but it did not happen while just using the desktop normally. Actually, it just happened whilst normally browsing on my desktop, so it isn't specific to gaming either, although it has happened only once whilst not gaming.
I managed to grab some footage of it happening in CSGO.

Forgot to include specs, whoops.
