I have a dell dimension E510, with standard issue mouse. For a few days the mouse has been freezing up randomly, alot. Sometimes i will get a "USB device not recognized" pop up, that goes away quickly, and may or may not return just as quickly.
I have moved the mouse to a different USB port, and am getting the same issue.
Interestingly, I just bought a wireless optical mouse (a generic brand), and IT has issues as well- the cursor like to travel to the right. Constantly. So I unplugged the wireless and re-plugged in the wired mouse, and am not getting this freeze issue.
Sometimes moving the mouse will unstick it, most times it takes about 15-20 seconds. But the frequency is the annoyance. It happens non-stop.
I checked my device manager, and it says all my devices are working properly, and am reluctant to reinstall or update any drivers until I get a better opinion.

The drivers at the following site. Just specify your OS. Looks like they only have drivers for Vista 32 bit and XP. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/product/dimension-5150x/drivers
the hardware that is the USB ports seem to be functioning good as the logitech mouse works without any issues .
What u could try is
1 try the dell mouse on another machine. If it does not work on the other machine too then its a issue with the usb mouse itself Or
2 if it works good on another machine then we could refresh the drivers for the USB ports by following :
start - right click my computer - properties - hardware- device manager - under device manager expand usb devices - now remove all the ROOT HUBS by right clicking on it and choose uninstall - restart the machine and make sure the sytem is conneted to internet | all the root hubs would be installed all over automatically.Try the DELL mouse should work.
3 if it doesnt visit support .dell.com download the chipset drivers and reinsall it . If no go
4 then try reinstalling the OS.
These are the steps you coudl try doin as i see it seems to be a issue with the mouse itself..
Kindly update after following steps for further instructions .
Is this a USB or PS2 mouse? Have you tried a different mouse already. More than likely this is a bad mouse. If it has a ball in it and is not optical, try removing the ball and cleaning out the inside. If this doesn't work, replace the mouse.
more info would be beneficial in diagnosing exactly whats wrong.. but try to rule out a few obvious things first. try disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard and make sure it is properly seated in the usb/ps2 port. download spybot S&D and scan your computer to remove any keyloggers/trojans/malware that may be hogging your cpu and thus bogging down the Input from your keyboard.
Wireless routers generally are 2.4 Ghz, as well as the wireless keyboard and mouse. I think there is interference from the router that causes the keyboard and mouse to hang. I had the same problem with my 2.4 Ghz cordless telephones and my new wireless router. Went to 5.8 Ghz telephone and the problem stopped. I'm not sure yet how to work around the keyboard/mouse issue.
