Mouse/Keyboard freezing - anyone any ideas?

  FLT 20:48 20 May 2003


I have an intermittent fault whereby I'll be moving the mouse and suddenly it freezes. All input from the keyboard is also lost. Ctrl-Alt-Delete etc. do nothing. I noticed last time that a voice chat program I was running continued to work, but the screen is totally dead.

I've reloaded video drivers, checked all connections, reinstalled the mouse etc. to no avail.

Anyone any suggestions?

(I run 98SE on an Athlon 650).

Try the latest motherboard drivers, if you haven't already.

Are they wireless?

They're not wireless.

I've also noticed that sometimes now the mouse continues to work, but all keyboard input fails.

is this a new usb keyboard/mouse?

Noticed that sometimes the mouse pointer would get stuck momentarily before the keyboard froze.

Have now tried a new mouse, and this appears to have stopped the problem.

Well done - don't forget to tick the problem solved box, and get the green tick on the thread.
