My System Specs

Default possible USB problems?

at first I thought that it was my mouse that had the problem ( and maybe this mouse maybe a little buggy) but after a while I bought a gigabyte osmium keyboard and when I plugged that in it would constantly disconnect , I had to unplug and replug it in. now that I closeted that keyboard and use an older keyboard I sometimes hear the windows sound of something plugging in or unplugging from a USB port . if I am only using this G5 mouse and keyboard and sometimes plug in my phone to charge everything seem ok.
the system I am running is an old z77 motherboard extreme 3 with a I5 2500k .

not sure what is going on maybe I need to upgrade ?

I am pretty that I have the latest which I am thinking is already 2 years old but will check just to be sure.

Just checked the site the drivers are from 2013

It's possible that the 5V line on your PSU is failing... could be running under-voltage and failing when too many things get connected.
