I am having similar mouse/keyboard both USB issues. But I need to work on a
few things before I comment.

About once a fortnight when I boot the PC my new MS-intellimouse doesn't
work. If I do an immediate restart all is well. I guess this is a side
effect of running a above spec FSB. I still didn't around to mounting a
heatsink on my Southbridge, but I suspect heat isn't a problem as the
machine is just booted when the problem begins (so Southbridge is fairly

Anyway no big deal, just thought I would share my observations.

Just a suggestion but do you have another PC you can use the mouse with

a couple of weeks to see if the problem remains. Also have you tried
re-installing the drives.

Hi David,

thanks for suggestions. Hmmm I never considered there may be a small
problem with my new MS USB mouse. I suspect the (tiny, tiny) problem may

due to running the NF7-S FSB @220Mhz, but as I said it happens very

If I run the FSB @200MHz all is fine. As for re-installing drivers, I

use any drivers for the MS mouse except what is built into WinXP Pro SP1.
The two times I booted into XP and had no mouse there was no LED at all
shining out the intellimouse, like it wasn't receiving power, I tried to
remove the USB connector from the back of the P.C and then re-plug it in

see if windows would pick it up, but no?. A quick restart and bingo its
back. Right now I am writing this post on my NF7-S with FSB 220MHz and

working flawlessly, so as I said before this isn't what I would call a
problem, just like to share experiences with the rest of the group. .
