Mouse Freezes

Every once in a while, the mouse pointer sticks in one place. I can move the mouse but the pointer stays in the same place. I mean I move the mouse and things like links underline and show up but the pointer stays. But when I click on a link the pointer does the hour glass!

HAPPY HOlIDAYS!!!!!

Try downloading the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website.

It's just a generic. I have the latest drivers anyway. It's ddefinetly the computer. Would it be too much CPU usage?

Right click on Empty Desktop\Properties\Settings\Advanced\Troubleshoot see the slider move it down one notch at a Time to see the affects, you need to click Apply after each to test

Right click the Taskbar, select Task Manager. On the Performance tab, is the CPU usage high?

- it only happened when I was copying my sisters
Sims 2 data off my hard drive [sister's nothing but trouble!] and then even Firefox was using 70%. I think it's sorted.

Any idea how much you can overclock a Sempron 2400+ @ 1.67?

I have a Hard Drive that got put in a Sempron 2400+ 512mb & windows loaded on, would I need to load Windows back on to place it in a PIII 128 or 156mb?
