Microsoft mouse keeps turning on and off, and now i got error code 43 and it just turned off completely.
I have a regular Microsoft 3-Button usb wired optical mouse. Recently it has started turning on and off, and now it gets error code 43 in the device manager. If I disconnect and reconnect it, it seems to work for a while then starts to turn on and off again and eventually gets error code 43 and turns off completely.
I have tried to connect the mouse to other usb ports, and it happens in them all. Tried reinstalling and updating the usb and the mouse drivers.
The strange thing is, when I connect that same mouse to a laptop, it looks like it works fine, no errors or nothing.
UPDATE: ended up buying a new (exact same) mouse, and it worked. Must have had something in the old one.
