He just told me his mouse will make the windows sound and stops working. He'll disconnect it and reconnect it and it'll work fine for any for a few seconds to an hour, but sometimes it'll keep repeating every few minutes.

Any advice before buying a new mouse?

Thank you!


Also . . by any chance is it a Logitech ergonomic mouse? I have one of those, and on multiple PCs, it'll sometimes disconnect and reconnect itself, and Windows makes the USB sound for disconnecting a USB device and reconnecting a USB device.

It never fully disconnected itself for me, just briefly, and it would come back, and like you, it would sometimes work fine for extended periods, and sometimes happen a few times a minute.

When I tried it on my work PC, sometimes it would stop working completely, and I would have to pull it out and plug it into another USB port. Eventually it would stop working there, and I'd have to reboot.

On my home PC, it would never stop working completely, just the hiccups.

On the sticker on the bottom, it shows as:
  • Model Number: M-U0007
  • Part Number: 810-004116
I was never able to resolve the problem - I simply had to get a different mouse.

It seems and is most likely that you have a faulty mouse as that specific mouse type is notorious for having issues exactly like this, you might have to either get it replaced or get a new one as this is probably the mouse being faulty.

If you haven't downloaded the current drivers for your mouse, it might solve the problem. Btw, my spouse had a similar problem with her work computer's mouse. But, it was a wireless mouse.
