Hi,

In regards to your first question, you might have a malfunctioning

mouse or an uncorrectly configured mouse.(2)you might have a missing device driver.(3)you might have an outdated firmware or bios a possible solution would be to try one of the three items I listed and then turn the computer off and then turn it back on to reset the USB

bus.

In regards to your second question, It sounds like your Power supply might be failing, or it might not have enough juice I would try installing a new power supply
