I have a mouse problem. My pointer like freezes at random times, but the mouse it still working. It's like the pointer stays in one place on the screen but if I move the mouse and click it works like the pointer is still moving… does any one know how to fix this? I’m running WinXP pro w\sp2 , and a PS2 optical mouse on a Dell Dimension 4600

Is it just the mouse that freezes, or everything, meaning that you cant even "alt cntl del"?

not even the mouse just the pointer... after it does i can still use the mouse like if i move it and it happens to go over something it highlites just as if the pointer was there even though its frozen at the other end of the screen...
I too now have the same problem. It's very frustrating. I have a new EVGA 7800GT card, and I still have this problem whether I have the original drivers from the cd installed, or the updated drivers from the site. If anyone figures out anything else about this, please let me know. Also, my computer seems to take a while to boot into Windows XP. Here's my configuration
Asus A8S-X Socket 939
Athlon 64 3700+
2 X 512MB Dual Channel Crucial Memory PC3200
74GB WD Raptor 10,000RPM SATA
EVGA 7800GT 256MB
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
i had a problem like this once a while back on my older pc. what ended up being wrong was that i had a wireless network card, but no router or network thingy set up yet, but the card was trying to connect - so i got little lag spikes every few mins - mouse cursor freezing/music skipping, etc.. until i disabled the wireless card.
probably not the problem, but just throwing it out there.
not sure but i have killed a 250gig hard drive in heatwave, i was playing toca3
the side of computer case was off i had 2 unplug dvd to play toca3
anyway i forgot to rest case with fan over hard drive to keep it cool
long story short...... i exited the game to find the mouse pointer had frose but still functioned
in a ghost like manner i asume that the mouse controller needs hard drive 100% ok
when i rebooted boot failed so i formatted and started windows install
got to windows detecting devices and mouse started doing same thing
thought this was strange......formatted again with differant partition using lots of cooling
mouse problem gone never came back...........
look after your hard drive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
to newbies HOW CAN IT BE THE MOUSE ITSELF WHEN IT GHOSTS AND WORKS
It seems strongly correlated to nvidia software. I, too, am using an EVGA
GeForce 9400. Only it flat won't work with stock drivers, so you have to
use the latest driver from nvidia. And, all these years later, the pointer
still freezes with a reboot the only way to clear the issue. The keyboard is
still usable. /var/log/Xorg.*.log* files contain no indicators. So, every few
minutes to every few hours, I am forced to reboot. What junky software.
