Ok heres my problem my mouse randomly stops working ie light goes off. Ive tried 2 other mice, and the touchpad still works. If i reboot the computer it works a while longer and goes off again. Now heres the kicker, i have a cooling pad that still works and if i hook a hard drive up it will start that and work fine. I know its not an os problem since i had the problem initially under windows and now running linux. I am confused at this.
