I'll try to keep this short but also detailed to help with as much important info as I can.
When it started:
I recently had Windows 10 on my current system running for months (maybe a year) fine, then while playing a game my mouse went insane beeping and not responding to my clicks. I could use my keyboard but couldnt do anything with my mouse. So I decided to do a hard reboot on the system and it ran into some complicated issues that forced me to do a clean install (no repair options worked and all failed after numerous reboots).
After the clean install I updated my drivers and downloaded all my games from steam and my mp3 music from my external HDDs; like business as usual. Shockingly enough it happened again, so I am thinking it is something to do with my hardware even though I have not gotten any new hardware recently....I did replace my HDD to a nice western digital one a few months ago and things have been fine.
I've done a bit of testing and the beeping/lagging seems to happen in two ways.
- 1. I go afk for about 10 minutes and come back (computer doesnt sleep) and i can move my mouse fine, no lag; however when clicking it beeps twice per one click and the clicks dont register to the PC like its trying to do anything.
- 2. After so many hours randomly it will beep while simply moving the mouse and becomes unresponsive as well. The more you move the mouse, the more beeps produced. I have not noticed what causes this to happen.
Troubleshooting & observation:
The only way to fix the #1 scenario was to run a freeware program called "Caffeine" that keeps pressing an imaginary F15 key so my PC doesnt think its sleep. Even though my power settings are to not sleep or have any USB devices go sleep or......anything sleep basically.
I've tried different USB ports for the mouse and a completely different mouse and neither of those things made a difference...I even connected both mouses in to the computer and when it freaks out for one, both are unresponsive. Even my Xbox controller doesnt work when it happens (if i go afk in a game in come back it doesnt respond at all). Also, my keyboard can move around my computer fine, I can alt tab between programs and interact with them fine. The only thing is I can't do a soft reboot, it stalls forever saying "Restarting" so I have no choice but to hard reboot it every time. I also looked at my HDD health with WD's Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostic tools and they all pass the "SMART" status. I've also tried disconnecting and reconnecting my mouse after this happens and it doesnt help, still dead.
The mouse that I'm using is a "Corsair Gaming M65 RGB Laser Gaming Mouse". But I dont think its the problem and would love some assistance from you guys if you have any suggestions I'm all ears.
Thank you for your time and help.
