You could try this I'm using a tablet PC so the first line turns off my key board so I nead a blue tooth KB for the second line but every thing work after.
sudo rmmod usbhid
sudo modprobe -v usbhid quirks="0x0930:0x0807:0x0040"
no guarantees as I'm new to linux and the numbers differ, unplugging and replugging the mouse undoes the first line

It didn't help, but thanks for the try.
Output from the commands above:

insmod /lib/modules/4.10.0-38-generic/kernel/drivers/hid/usbhid/usbhid.ko quirks=0x0930:0x0807:0x0040
