USB not working correctly

Good day,
I have Manjaro installed on an old HP laptop
This morning my mouse stopped working. It works when I plug it into another laptop.
When I shut down the laptop I get the following message which wasn’t there before:
[ 274.206697] hub_port_connect: 14 callbacks suppressed
[ 274.206702] usb usb2-port2: connect-debounce failed
[ 246.900019] usb usb2-port3: connect-debounce failed
and then it just continues back and forth between port2 and port3 with the numbers escalating before it shuts down.
The cooling unit still functions regardless of which usb port I plug it into.

Any help would be appreciated.

Please excuse any delay in my replies. I live in South Africa and we have to contend with nation-wide loadshedding.

I have provided system information using the, I hope this is the correct way to do it.

Then you need to use an older kernel, e.g.: 5.10 or 5.4.

I have installed an older kernel, but when I restart the laptop it eventually gets to a black screen and does not boot any further on its own.
When I press Enter it continues to boot.
I assume the black screen is where I am supposed to select the kernel version, but without being able to see anything I don’t know what to select.

Is there another way to switch kernels?

Then show /etc/default/grub here.

How do I do that?

Welcome to Manjaro! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

  1. Please read the information behind this link. It will help you to post necessary information. [HowTo] Provide System Information
  2. Please press the three dots below your post and then press the :pencil2:
  • If you give us information about your system, we can see what we’re talking about and make better suggestions.
  • You can do this by using inxi in a terminal or in console.
inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width
  • Personally identifiable information such as serial numbers and MAC addresses are filtered out by this command
  • Presenting the information in this way allows everyone to be familiar with the format and quickly find the items they need without missing anything.
  1. Copy the output from inxi (including the command) and paste it into your post.
  • To make it more readable, add 3 backticks ``` on an extra line before and after the pasted text.

You can also use Maxi

to collect information about the boot process. This works,

  • when you are in your running system (with CTRL+ALT+F2).
  • And also in a live environment

Thank you,

I have edited the information into my message as you have instructed.

The mouse is working again, but I would like to prevent it from failing in the future as I am not the primary user of this laptop and the person using it is not tech-savvy.
