Windows 7: USB Mouse disconnecting and reconnecting

USB Mouse disconnecting and reconnecting

Hey all,

I started having a problem ever since I scrapped Vista and got Windows 7. Periodically, my mouse (or perhaps all USB devices) will disconnect for a brief second and reconnect. I know this because the respective Windows sounds will be played. Just to clear this up: I have tried multiple ports as well as multiple mouses, and neither change anything. Doing a bit of research, I found some people with similar issues, but there was no definite resolution (links at the end). One of them stated that it could be a problem with IRQ collisions. Looking in my Device Manager, this is what I see:

(20) NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller
(20) Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller

However, I see multiple devices sharing the same number throughout this list. What got my attention though was the fact that I just added a new SATA hard drive before I installed Windows 7, so now I have two. Is it possible that this is causing interference in any manner that would cause the problems I've been having?
