Windows 7: USB Legacy Mode

USB Legacy Mode

Is it safe to disable it? Some tech on the logitech forums told me to cause my mouse would sometimes crap out on restart, just with the light blinking and i would have to unplug it and re plug it.

So im wondering is it safe to disable usb legacy mode in bios? do i need it?

Hello Soto,

I would just leave it enabled in case you need it. It will not harm anything to do so, or use any additional resources.

I don't know, but that might explain a problem that I have had with their TrackMan mice. Go ahead and disable it and find out, you can always reenable it if there is a problem.

No, my problem with the mice was not consistent, but I can't test it right now, because I'm waiting for a RMA of the mouse to arrive tomorrow.

EDIT: Looking at the clock, I guess that is actually today.

Soto,

It will not hurt anything to disable it as a test to see how your mouse works afterwards. If you cannot use your mouse at any point, then just restart into your BIOS and enable it again.
