Mouse freezes, windows 10

I use Windows 10 with a USB Asus gaming mouse (all drivers have been re-installed and I have tried several different USB sockets).

While playing the cursor will freeze in p[lace for 2-10 seconds and all other functions will continue working, sometimes I will hear a device detected chime when it unfreezes and sometimes I won’t.

The problem only happens with the game running.

It is very disruptive to gameplay.

Would be very grateful for any help resolving!

Perform a disk check, that’s typically what happens when an HD or SSD becomes defective. Hopefully it’s something else but when that happens, it’s best to know early.
