I have a Steelseries Rival 300 mouse and a Lenovo Ideapad Gaming 3 laptop, it has been going good until around 3 weeks ago. Some Windows update broke it so that my laptop wouldn't let any external mouse control the pointer. A later update fixed it but now after some time any mouse i have ever tested starts to disconnect and reconnect, increasing in frequency then completely stopping control of the mouse. It then defaults to the trackpad until I restart the system. I use a utility called "USBDeview" to see if the mouse is still connected after that happens, it is connected and the optical sensor is on. Any ideas?
