This kind of mouse sometimes stop on working. To make it working again I found out a work-around solution: I insert a pen drive in any USB port, and if the mouse stop again, extract the pen drive, and so on...
Do you know a more efficient solution? Thanks

Welcome to HP Support Forums. A really great platform for posting all your questions and finding solutions.
This is a pretty strange issue. 😁
Have you tried this mouse on any other computer? Do you have to go through the same work around with other computers?
Meantime please try replacing the battery in the mouse and also check the mouse on another computer.
Keep me posted

Thanks for your support. This mouse is just purchased, a new one. The battery is new. I've not available, for the moment, an another PC to check, I will try the mouse with a Tablet.
Now this mouse is always connected to PC, also when it freezes. The freeze frequency varies from few minutes to one hour, without any logic. The fact that it come back immediately when I insert or disinsert a pen drive seems due to something related to the O.S.- rather then due to the mouse. Strange problem I agree, but this is!

I read the quick response. Thanks for the update. It is awesome to have you back and your tremendous commitment and superb troubleshooting skills are amply appreciated. As @KrazyToad is out for the day, I am responding on his behalf.
Run all Windows 8.1 updates and ensure that the latest Windows updates are correctly installed on the computer and it has the most current updates.
Then update the bios from http://hp.com/drivers and follow the on-screen instructions.
Then create a new user account as an administrator from this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/help/13951/windows-create-user-account
Log in to the new user account after restarting the computer. Now connect the mouse and check if it works correctly.
This should do the trick for you.
Good luck and keep me posted about the developments. If this helps, please mark this as “Accepted Solution” as it will help several others with the same issue and give the post a Kudos for my efforts to help. Thank you and have a great week ahead. 🙂

Hello guys, failure remains as before!
I've updated Win 8.1 with the last, no need of driver's update.
I've created a new local account, as per your instructions.
The mouse, also now, works very well, when it is.
Ther'is some event, inside the PC or into the interaction mouse-PC, that trigger the freeze.
Impossible for me to identify which is the event. As i've already mentioned, the event of inserting or switch off a pen drive into an USB port, restore the mouse activity immediately.
Anyway, many thanks for your support. I was an Hp electronic service engineer, in Italy, years 1970-80.
