    Running ME on a AMD750 w/ 256M of RAM
    I leave my computer running continuously - for no apparent reason the mouse will become unresponsive. It dosen't freeze, it just takes a lot of moving the mouse for the cursor to respod. I've tried closing all programs one at a time but the only thing that works is to reboot. Then all is well for awhile - sometimes it is ok for a couple of days, sometimes only a few hours.

    Any ideas? I suspect it has something to do w/ ME. I've also had some problems loading my EasyPhoto software and problems recording CDs after installing ME.

    Have you checked for updated mouse drivers for Windows ME?

    Hi! I don think this is a problem of the driver...

    what i wanna say is.... actually, i also have a same problem like mswhorn...When the mouse become unable to control and even don respond anymore, the system information didn't discover that the mouse but the keyboard can... I think this is because virus or anything else.....

    Were the mouse stop responding when u're online?

    well guys........a couple of months back i bought a logitec mouseman,cordless optical mouse.........very smart........got rid of that damn cable that we are always tugging at.
    a couple of weeks ago my mouse did exactly the same as you describe.....and after all the praise i gave my mouse i was ready for throwing it across the room,i changed the batteries and that didnt help.
    BUT.......after a full defrag,everything is rosey again.
    the simplest of things.
    just a thought.:rolleyes:

    Thanks for the suggestions. This usually happens when I am online. I last defraged on 10/24 and will try that today.
