While playing games online I notice that my mouse occasionally stops working for seconds at a time on a continual basis. I can't seem to hold a connection between my mouse and computer, even though it is not wireless. This is so frustrating, is there a solution??

Funny story: Follow these instructions and your Continue button will work perfectly. I'm on my third career without one problem on Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit.
1) Open your Device Manager and highlight the Mice and other pointing devices section.
2) Start NFS Pro Street (it will not start with mouse disabled) and get to the Main Menu.
3) Alt+Tab over to the Device Manager and use your mouse to disable the mice listed under Mice and other pointing devices.
4) As soon as your mouse stops working, immediately Alt+Tab over to Need for Speed and play away. Your continue button will work flawlessly.
5) When you're done playing Alt+Tab back over to the Device Manager and your cursor will still be on the mouse option that disabled it.
6) Hit Enter to bring up the Properties window, hit Tab once to move it to the Enable Device button, then hit the space bar three times. Your mouse is back on.
7) Close the game with your mouse (just out of spite) and remember these few easy steps.
*Unplugging the mouse does not work, sadly.
Evidently there is some problem with the mouse on your desktop stealing focus in Windows 8, I noticed it when I had a mouse cursor in the game on my main screen and saw my desktop mouse cursor moving around on my second monitor at the same time. The two are out of sync somehow and it nerfs the works. This is working for me with Autosave on and off, cracked and non-cracked .EXE, with and without cheat codes, no Gameboost or whatever it is. I did it with both a Logitech gamepad and a Logitech steering wheel and pedals, it's all a matter of having the pad and buttons assigned the right way. After doing this twice, it takes less than fifteen seconds total to do and I get to play one of my fave racing games without worry.
Oh, as a sidenote, those of you having the login problems who bought the game cheap from Origin and downloaded it, I suggest a disc copy. I paid very little for mine and I don't have to log in to a thing. I can cancel the "Connecting to EA" message as soon as it pops without issue. Enjoy boys and girls!
I am having the same issue with Project Eden. Occasionally the mouse is highly unresponsive unless I make a more drastic movement with it. It happens for seconds at a time and really hampers the experience.
Your machine needs more memory to facilitate the game. The mouse is OK. The game occupiess too much of the computer's memory.

it's possible that your connector isn't properly seated and/or getting a good connection and the large amount of mouse movement that games like Counter-Strike require could be causing it to unseat and reseat sporadically. If your model is a USB unplug and plug it back in "firmly". also you can try using a different USB port.
The reason it's taking 10-15 seconds is because windows is uninstalling and reinstalling the mouse in your hardware profile every time it loses connection. Since this is a fairly memory intensive operation as far as windows goes and you're already playing a video game (which are notorious for using large amounts of RAM and CPU time) that's just how long it's taking.
If unplugging and reinserting the cable doesn't work, your best solution would most likely be to simply go out and buy another mouse.
