I have a new computer that is approximately 3 months old. It is:
System manufacturer: HP Pavillion
System Model: GB401AA-ABU a6001.uk
System Type: X86 based PC
I run Vista home basic.
Being a luddite I have VERY little experience or knowledge regarding computers and I hope that you take this into mind when contemplating my problem and the details that I have given.
Ok well, I do little on my computer other than play WoW (World of Warcraft), use Skype, MSN and ICQ, or Azureus to download movies or albums.
A few weeks ago I began to have problems with my cursor, it started freezing, then jumping around, then freezing completely (I tried a new mouse but it was just the same and often I would need to restart many times before the mouse would work normally again), this is an infrared mouse btw. I then noticed that everytime i plugged in or unplugged my webcam it would cause my computer to restart (it was an old webcam, completely crap quality), so i uninstalled it and the problems ceased. My cursor problem rectified itself from then, there were no more sudden 'mind of it's own' events until yesterday. Yesterday, regardless of what was running the same thing happened, but it escalated much quicker. I had to restart my computer 4 times to even sign up and post here, some times when i restart it enables the mouse to work and sometimes it does not :( I can be doing anything with no problem for an hour or two and then suddenly BAM! This last cursor freeze was the worst....I would try to move it and programmes would open, it would flitter around doing all kinds of unknown *!@: :( Then nothing.
Thanks for reading anyway
If you need more details regarding my computer please tell me how to find it as I am slightly lost with Vista.
