On my new clean install of Windows 7, I noticed that my mouse was randomly stuttering for a short second or two. The best way I can describe it is that someone is randomly unplugging and plugging it back in very quickly.

After a short search, I heard it was some sort of processor problem in the msconfig.exe -> Boot -> Advanced Options

My computer is a 2 core, 4 thread processor. I tried setting it to 2 processors; the issue didn't seem to arise. However my FPS in games dropped drastically.

When I changed it back to 4 processors, it came right back. Any idea on how to fix this?

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Intel Core i5-2415M CPU @ 2.30 Ghz, 4.0 GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics Family
Logitech G400 (no problems on other computers)

You may try running the Hardware Troubleshooter and check if that could diagnose the problem:

a. Open the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel.

b. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Under Hardware and Sound, click Configure a device.

c. ‌ If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.


You could try deleting the mouse driver in Device Manage, then reboot the machine, Windows will reload the driver.

Tried both of those, nothing. It's really bothersome, but it doesn't seem to affect me in-game though. It does cause FPS drops, but the mouse doesn't freeze.

EDIT: And the touchpad doesn't freeze either, or it hasn't. This is really confusing.

Do you have another mouse you could try? The cord may of went bad. Test by bending the cord near the USB connector or mouse. It may also be failing electronically. Go back into device manager and reinstall all the USB controllers, as well. Try a different USB port. Try the mouse on another computer.

Thank you for your suggestions.

It seems when I boot into Safe Mode that the problem doesn't arise. What do I do with this?
