I am having trouble with my second PC. The mouse freezes for a few seconds intermitently. At the same time if I am play any audio I get a sound like a motoboat for the same length of time as the mouse stops. I have tried differrent mice and drivers and re-installed sound card drivers. I had the same problem with the onboard sound that is why I put in a sound card.I`ve also dissable onboard sound in the bios. As the latest mouse is USB I unpluged this but the sound is still there. I also tried everything from this mobo into another mobo including the memory and CPU (AMD 2100 XP )with the same problem. Mobo is ECS K7S5a Windows XP AMD 2100XP cpu 2 sticks of memory @ 256 each. It sounds as though at certain times the system stops to do something else. Any help please.
This problem started after a clean install. I have tried different mice and also there own drivers.My next task is to swap a graphics card just to eliminate. This problem occurs without playing audo, the mouse pointer stops for a few seconds. There are no conflicts showing. Any more suggestions please
