Since a week or so my Space Navigator stops working out of nowhere. It keeps going when I'm using it, but when, for example, I'm walking to the printer, it doesn't do anything anymore when I get back. I have to unplug it from the USB port and plug it back in which makes it work for about an hour before it stops working again and I have to plug it back in and out again. It happens at random times. Really annoying the USB port is pretty hard to reach
Last week I was using SolidWorks 2008 when it started happening. Since monday I'm working in SolidWorks 2010 and the same thing still happens. When it stops working the LED's are still on, but the thing doesn't work in any other program. Not even in the 3D Mouse Home tutorial for example.
Since this morning I downloaded the latest driver, but that didn't fix it.
Already tried to plug it in with both buttons pressed for 15 seconds multiple times. Also didn't help.
Is there any way to fix this?
Using Windows XP Service Pack 3. Space Navigator worked fine on this system for 4 months.
Thanks in advance.
