C/Less Mouse & XP Locking up

  driving man 22:51 01 Dec 2005

I have a Belkin cordless mouse and keyboard. For some reason XP kept locking up completely. I checked fan and temperatures (All OK) and then for no reason at all removed batteries from mouse and plugged in the old PS2 mouse. The mouse and sender still attached. Now all seems ok.
MY question is why did it happen --- I thought driver conflict, but drivers are still there and I assume still conflicting even when the mouse batteries are removed. Any thoughts please to guide me if this isn't the real reason or solution.
Regards to all

FReeezing PC

1. Overheat due to faulty / blocked fans

2. PSU voltages

3. Household power surges fridge etc switching on/off

Fruit Bat /\0/\ everything OK except No.6 not checked yet. I believe there is a program to scan a PC, check for all updates needed and give addresses where updates can be found. Do you know of it and if so a link would be great

This question has been in forum long enough. Not many real answers have come up so I will mark this as resolved
