I recently bought a new rig and the X17 mouse was working fine for a few weeks, now it constantly disconnects with the USB disconnect chime and drops out, the cursor will stop moving for a couple seconds then it will resume normal activity until it happens again. This could be a few seconds or a few minutes.

Under Windows settings where the X17 is listed, it shows “Driver Failure” when this happens.

I am using the current Unleash software. I have tried an older version. I’ve tried all the different USB ports. Not sure what to do. It’s extremely frustrating it makes gaming impossible and overall use unbearable.

I’m kind of a noob, any tips you have might need to be explained like you’re talking to a child. LOL. Please help with any suggestions! Thank you!

    It has been set to 1000Hz. Lowered it, and it didn’t help.

    Did you tried to change USB port? I know it sound dumb but it can be that.

    Yes I did, tried all ports. Z15 keyboard uses the same Unleash program and it has no issues. Starting to think the Mouse is defective.

    Power Management Options could also trigger issues, especially with any new windows updates recently. You could try this and maybe it will work?
     
    A quick fix is to disable power management for your USB ports. Open Device Manager and expand the Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Double-click a USB device and in the properties window, go to the Power Management tab. Uncheck the ‘Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power’ option. Your mouse should stop disconnecting at random. We should point out that not all USB devices have a power management tab.
     
    Good luck!

    Am experiencing this myself with an X17 that's only a few days old very annoying and frustrating when gaming and in the middle of battles and fights

    That doesn't fix it for me unfortunately. Tried every usb port on my X570 dark board to no avail. I've had nothing but issues with the board as well but Evga aren't interested in fixing anything. My x17 mouse constantly disconnects and reconnects while using the pc. Have gone back to my trusty logitech g502 although not as comfortable to use it doesn't bloody disconnect on me

    I have started facing the same issue with my X17 mouse. The X15 keyboard I am using is fine. Please provide a solution.

    If you haven't I would suggest updating the AMD chipset drivers. There did release an update for input device issues. 
    If possible test the x17 on a different system to see if the issue follows the mouse. If it does on another system (preferably intel base) contact our support team for warranty replacement.

    Latest amd chipset drivers are from 2 months ago on there website. First time to ever encounter a mouse to just randomly disconnect and reconnect like this. It's like something is interrupting the mouse for a couple of seconds but knowing Evga nothing will be done about it or fixed :(
