    Hi everyone,
    My mouse cursor freezes on the screen everyonce in a while .After I wait about 10 seconds I can move it.
    I have a HP7920 and my os is Windows ME.

    This is usually indicitave that your computer is busy processing something else at the time (another program)...or that your system resources are low...

    To find out if either of these are the case...
    1.) Reboot your computer...
    2.) Right click on My Computer...
    3.) Select properties...
    4.) Select Performance...

    If your performance is more than 85%...your computer should typically be fine. (Be aware that opening more programs throughout the day can lower this number...at that point...it should always be kept above 70%...if it's not...you should look into adding more RAM.
    If your performance is less than 85% on boot...try this...

    1.) Start
    2.) Run
    3.) Msconfig
    4.) Startup...(the top right option usually...)

    You're going to notice that a number of these are checked...Most of them shouldn't be...and others you might want to keep...Virtually every program puts itself here after installation, slowing your computer. Monitor this frequently...

    I hope that these simple solutions help...

    I had the same problem, on a simular machine. Do you have a ATI video card? The video driver was the culprit for my machine.
