I am going batty....I have been having a recurring malfunction with multiple USB mouse. The mouse winds up vanishing off the screen (the sensation and visual is like it's going off the tops or sides of the screen and getting stuck there) and then it gets stuck being lost off the screen and it also stalls out repeatedly. This is happening to all the different types of mouse I have tried - regardless or wired or wireless and different brands. I did some research and found an article pointing someone else with similar problems to update their bios so I have done just that but it hasn't affected or solved the problem at all.
I'm at my wits end. Just as a reminder this problem is with an external mouse not the trackpad on the laptop (cannot stand those).
Any help is appreciated.

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have read your thread on the HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook and the TouchPad jerking while you are trying to use it. Here is a link to troubleshoot the Touchpad. if you will go to the section on Adjusting TouchPad sensitivities it should help resolve the issue. If you wanted to disable the TouchPad here is a link to disabling your Touchpad.
Please let me know.

I forgot I had posted this so long ago so I apologize for replying to it now. It is not the touchpad (if you had read my description above I specify USB and wireless mice because I do not use the touchpad because I don't like them I'm not comfortable with them).
I am still experiencing the problem with my nice no matter what type they are and again this is not the touchpad because I do not use the touchpad because I do not like the touchpad because I am not comfortable with the touchpad. When I refer to the mice I am referring to both wired and wireless mice that Connect into any of the four USB ports on the computer. The unusual reaction is that the mice stop dead as in go to sleep and it takes maybe 15 to 30 seconds for them to wake up and become active again period this annoying Behavior happens over and over and over again and it is driving me nuts still. Are is there any diagnostic utilities that I can run on almost a constant basis and make a notation of the time that it happens to submit to HP for them to evaluate the data compared to the times that I provide when the mice freeze up? Just to give you some ideas of what I experienced and when I experienced it I play a game through the GSN Casino application cold Vegas Nights. It is one of those games where you align things and it drops down to give you points. This is not the only time it happens but this is the most frequent time because I play it so constantly because I love it so much. When I am playing the game and the mice go dead typically the pointer shoots up to the top most left hand corner of the screen and just get stuck there for at least 30 seconds or so. When I am using the computer without the game I also do experience this but the mice will just stop dead arbitrarily anywhere on the screen and be stuck dead for at least 30 seconds. Again I am looking to find out if there any utilities that can track system tivity and record it so that I can submit it to HP to figure this out as well as possibly submitting it to the game company for their simultaneous review. Just to remind you this is not the trackpad because I don't like trackpads they are uncomfortable.

I understand that you are facing an issue with your computer freezing up the mouse. (Wired and Wireless) Don't worry, I will be glad to help.
Have you tried any troubleshooting steps on your own?

What is the operating system installed on your computer?

As you mentioned, recommend you to run a System test on your computer to make sure all the components are working correctly.
To enter system diagnostics. Shut down the computer.
Turn the computer ON and keep tapping ESC or F2 to get the startup menu and select system diagnostics.

To the best of my knowledge, I feel that there an issue with the application not responding rather than the mouse settings.
