Annoying problem. Mouse freezing

  charlton200 10:32 13 Aug 2010

I've had an annoying problem for a couple of months now. Ever computer session I get the mouse pointer freezing on me: followed about 30 seconds later by the screen going black. Sometimes I get a little beeping sound as well. My only option is restart. Sometimes I get this problem twice in a session. This can get very irritating as I might be in the middle of something important. Can you help please to sort this problem out?

Many thanks

How many beeps and are they long or short or a mixture.

There is just a short beep. sometime none at all: just freezing.

It is a wired mouse.

Clean the fluff out of the computer.
Sounds like it's overheating.

"It is a wired mouse"
Would that be PS/2 or USB?

Have you tried a new mouse?
