I have a problem with a PC where the power sometimes acts up on boot. This PC has a mouse with back-lighting. The back-lighting on the mouse will 'sometimes' flicker and the PC will not accept any input from the mouse. When this happens the USB keyboard will also boot with troubles. Rather than flickering (it has back-lighting too) it will simply not power (No input here either.) Now, this sounds like a motherboard issue, except for one thing I am hoping somebody can explain:
If I disconnect the devices and reconnect them everything starts working again. No restart is required or anything of the sort. What might be the problem and is there a fix short of a new motherboard?
Some new information: It seems that the mouse is where everything is going wrong. I have reinstalled motherboard drivers, disabled superfetch, and disabled readyboot. None of this has helped the issue. I have determined however that it seems to start the trouble with the mouse. If I unplug the mouse and plug it back in, everything goes back on track (the keyboard begins to work.)
