I was thinking of a test OS installation for the time being,
just throw an old HDD into the system if you haven't a spare
partition or do whatever, just to see if it makes a
difference while retaining ability to continue using the
current OS installation.
Seems you've tried the usual things then. I'm out of
ideas... might have more if the system were in front of me
but remote troubleshooting of obscure problems is more
Is it possible the motherboard's ports don't fit flush
against the rear I/O shield such that only a few plugs are
narrow enough to fully insert? As for the prior
suggestion about a clean windows installation, you could
instead see if the problem "mice* would work from a dos
bootdisk... some utilites do load a mouse driver for their
GUI, like Partition Magic or some of the HDD manufacturer
utilities. Problem is that this is intermittent, the harder
type of problem to troubleshoot. Along with that, see if
there's any commonality to when problem occurs, like changes
in ambient temp or ???.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Thanks for the ideas though, it's really been a
Another good idea, I'll be on the lookout for a pattern. You may be right
with the power sensitivity, and when it's hot more power is directed
elsewhere, leaving my mice suffering. Perhaps a new PSU would fix it.
Certainly a better alternative than buy a new motherboard.
