    when i use a particular optical mouse, sometimes the light in the usb mouse will suddenly disappear. then i won't be able to use the mouse even after i plug it in the usb port (not usb type c) again.

    then i tried it with another optical mouse, when i plug it in, it will flash the red light for one second, then it won't show any light at all.

    after i restart the chromebook, it will work again.

    one time, i unplugged this particular usb mouse, then plugged it in again. it stopped working. it doesn't happen all the time though.

    another time, i tried to plug in an usb external hard drive, after the mouse stopped working, somehow the chromebook can still recognize the external hard drive.

    now i am using another different optical mouse, i haven't had any problems for a few days.

    this is a refurbished chromebook. i already updated the chromebook to the latest version.

    i don't know why the first mouse can cause the second mouse also stops working, i am just wondering if there is any potential problems with the usb port, or if it is actually that particular mouse? i still have the warranty time.

    thanks.
