    Default Problem?

    Do you all think it's a USB port problem or does the problem lie in the with optical mouse if the light goes totally off when i use it?

    The red light within the mouse would vanish completely and my computer would play a sound, indicating a device has been disconnected (WinXp Prof) and when the light re-appears (almost instantly. The on-off of the red light is less than 1 sec), the same sound can be heard, indicating that a USB device has been connected...

    The frequency seems to be getting higher...

    Anyone?

    Kindly advice.

    I have the same problem happening occasionally. I connect the mouse to a dodgy USB hub but when I connect it straight to the USB port, its ok. So yes, I guess the problem lies with the port.

    probably some other USB port is drawing more electricity :P resulting in the loss of power at the mouse USB ;P

    If not, ur USB is bonkers! ;PPP

    No no.. hehe. i meant getting a 300w PSU since my current one is supporting the following IDE devices through my mobo (Asus A7V)

    1. HDD 7Gig
    2. HDD 9Gig
    3. HDD 3Gig
    4. CD Writer
    5. CD Drive
    6. Superdisk Drive/FloppyDisk Drive

    I am not too sure if my PSU is able to handle so much devices.

    Would getting a 300W PSU be considered overkill?

    Nope. Having too much power in the power supply is not overkill and will not fry your system.

    I have a 400W HEC Power Supply with 2 fans supplying power to my system which has:

    1. 40GB 7200rpm HDD
    2. 60GB 7200rpm HDD
    3. DVD Drive
    4. CD Burner
    5. Floppy
    6. AMD 900MHz Duron processor + board
    7. Audigy Drive
    8. 3 additional case fans
    9. USB ADSL modem
    10. USB Printer
    11. USB Card Reader
    12. USB IrDA adaptor

    I think the PSU still has got lots of reserve power....

    Regards

    Sweet set up you have there.

    Anyhow, i need another HDD, a big big one actually.
    Well, i disgress... back to the main issue at hand.
    I realise the mouse is spoiled because it doesn't even emit any light now at all.

    Dis-assembled it and it look sfine and the red light now blinks periodically on and off.... Hmmm... I switched it to my USB port where my Fuji cam is connected (which is working perfectly fine)
    and still there is no light...

    I guess i new mouse is in order?
