View Full Version : Mouse Locking Up

I am having a problem with my USB connection to my mouse and keyboard. My mouse freezes all the time and releases the button while I am dragging items. I also have a USB key for Logic plugged into my keyboard. Logic loses communication with the key constantly, causing the app to shut down. The problem does not seem to affect my keyboard when I am typing, only the peripherals that are plugged into it. It has terminated the connection with the keyboard on a few occassions, however. Unplugging the keyboard and plugging it back in has worked, so far.

I've been thinking about downgrading to 10.23 as a result of problems with 10.24 anyway, but before I go to the trouble, does anyone know of other solutions? I have tried everything I can think of.

Thanks in advance!

This may actually be a problem with your keyboard, it has a little hub built in that might be failing.

Is anybody else having this problem?

It is also a possability that your USB dongle is causing this too.

I moved the dongle to my hub and everything with Logic smoothed out. I may switch my keyboard with the one on my old Graphite. Somehow, I am less than hoepful.

Argh! 10.24, you've done it again!

I bought a new USB hub and a floppy drive (long story - don't ask) and the drive lost connection from the display. Maybe it's my hub in the display or my USB altogether. Are there any utilities to test ports?

Techtool used to come with a dongle to test ports, but with USB I don't know.
