Hi there i have a wireless mouse 2.0 which keeps freezing in windows xp,
I have checked the batteries checked the frequency, cable connections ect ect, and everything seems fine.

I have even downloaded the latest drivers but the mouse still keeps on freezing!

Also when the mouse freezes and stop responding the rest of the PC is still working , Media player will carry on playing mp3s, or games will stilll work but the mouse will be 'dead'.


This is really annoying me and im thinking of going back to a good ole cabled optical mouse!

Thanks for any help Guys

My twopennyworth. You could have erratic interference. Mobile phones looking for signals can cause interference, as can TVs, videos, fridge, freezer etc. Worth checking out. (I'm not talking state-of-the-art stuff here, but the stuff that real people have in their houses.)


Do unto others exactly what you expect them to do to you.

What type of mobo do you have?

I have a microsoft wireless intellemouse 2.0 and when I overclocked my asus a8n-sli mobo using the
NOS overclock settings in the bios my mouse would lock up for several seconds every few minutes. Only when using USB though.

DONT ASK how I finally figured it out :) It was a long painful process

Do you reckon using a ps2 adaptor might be effective or will that not make a difference?

Also his intelli mouse worked well on his old pc!! im going round there to test it with my optical CABLE mouse and see if that makes a difference, its just annoying as it worked with his old pc!!

All wireless mices are rubbish - I went back to wired long ago. More trouble than they are worth. Unless anyone has a excellent recommendation????

I agree that the MX1000 is an excellent choice. No problems whatsoever to date and I've had it for about 3-4 months.

I'm not sure about the laser option for the price 75USD or thereabouts. We'll see - appreciate the advice.

Wireless are a bit dicky if your system is not running as it should.

Never have had any problems with any of the wireless mouses that I have had.

perhaps its out of range of the receiver, try moving the receiver closer to the desk and see if thart help, if it does then make sure theres nothing that interefere with the signal inbetween the mouse and the receiver.
anything thats in the way can actually interefer esp. metal

Error 34:
There was no error

Wow!! Thank you!! You did it - that was the fix on my PC with an Asus A8N-E. I guess it has something to do with Nvidia NForce4. I set overclock to Standard in Bios and both my Microsoft and Logitech wireless mice work without hiccups.
