Continuous Beeping and Laggy Mouse

    I've been having this issue for a while now. It only happens for me when I use my Saitek x55 and pro flight pedals. I use them to play Elite Dangerous and every time I quit the game I had this issue. I saw this thread last night and so replaced the HD cable connecting my monitor. This morning I tried playing Elite again and upon quitting I could move my mouse fine, but I couldn't click, every time I clicked it made that beeping noise, and when I unplugged my mouse and plugged it into another port it came up with the same error about it malfunctioning. At least I could move my mouse this time (until I unplugged it) but I still had to hard reset my PC after quitting Elite. I like Elite and would rather not have to hard reboot my PC every time I play it. Is it just a case of keep trying cables until I find one that works? Is there something else I can do?

    Well for me replacing that one cord was what did it but considering the number of people that have had this issue it might be more complicated than that. This could be an issue that happens in windows when the video card gets an interrupt somehow, a bad cable can do that but also something wrong with the monitor or video card driver. What I am fairly certain at this point is the issue is hardware related and the problem stems from video.

    Well I have a 2 year old GeForce 780ti and a nearly new LG 34UC87-P. This issue occurred with my old monitors as well, before I swapped the dual monitors for this one Super Wide one, so it's not the monitor. Unfortunately I don't have a replacement graphics card I can test. I'll keep an eye on the thread and hope someone will solve it.

    Got an update, I read on a forum where all the posters were using a Saitek X55 Rhino joystick that were also having the same issue. People mentioned USB extension cables and USB hubs causing issues, and I was running my mouse and keyboard through a USB hub. I've disconnected the hub and so far so good, it's not locked up after using the Saitek X55 so far. Hope that helps someone.

    OK, it happened again, this time I was using TS3 again so I did a little searching and it turns out my issue is related to direct input and TS3 - Unplugging the X-55 causes PC to freeze, mouse movement produces beeping sounds - Page 4 - ED Forums

    Good find. So What I am coming to believe is that this issue can be caused by a number of different problems. So what is one solution for one person does not work for others.

    Well i have kind of the same problem. I say kind of because it's the first time my mouse become laggy and beep on move / on click / on release and won't click.
    Normaly screen freezes (even keyboard won't respond), then a few minutes later, everything come back to normal. Last time, when the computer recovered i was in the Log In Screen ! And now, mouse beeps and won't click.

    I read the whole thread and i can identify myself to a lot of different thing :
    1. Razer Lachesis
    2. Happen only when Chrome is opened (Wich started to auto-resize when i open it for the first time of the day)
    3. I use TeamViewer every once in a while, not sure if we can concider it like Windows RDP, but it's remote control
    4. My computer is equiped with 1 USB 1 Via multi-card-reader, 6 USB 2(One on front panel) and 8 USB 3 (5 on PCI-E, 1 on front panel via PCI-E card)
    5. Hardware change. In fact i haven't change 1 piece, i kept only the Hard drive and the DVD Writter, Windows 8.1 reconfigured on start-up and worked like a charm before this start to happen.


    I do game with my computer but this NEVER happen when i game, only on Chrome !

    The rig is :
    AMD "Eight"-core @3.5Ghz
    16Gb Corsair Vengeance
    R9 270X 2Gb
    Asus M5A97 LE R2.0

    I also have this issue, and am using a stock Lenovo W540 laptop without any external monitor, keyboard, or mouse, running Win 7 Enterprise. So there's another tick in the 'different causes' column.

    I have no consistent triggers for this problem, but this laptop has a trackpoint/touchpad and the most recent occurrence happened after a click-and-drag to scroll down a pretty average webpage.

    This started happening about a month ago after I installed about 6 months worth of Windows Updates. Its is just maddening -- it happens at least once a day, the screen will flash black, then you can only move (but not click) the mouse cursor and there is beeping when you move the cursor or attempt to click.

    It must have been something in the Windows Updates in the last 6 months, but I cant tell which one.
