    Google "the make of your graphics card" drivers. then find the right driver for your model.
    I had this problem with hidden and dangerous, turned out that the game takes alot of memory to play and the fact that the mouse didn't move was just extreme lag. Check the specs of your comp

    Only on certain games. I can still play but have to ctl,alt,del to get back in. Called them and they said upgrade directx which I did. Didn't work. Then said maybe I have too many processes running (42).
    Don't know which to delete. Not that good at computer.

    I have a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200. When I went into web site. They have a driver for WHQL F5 series. Is this it. I don't want to download wrong driver. Also , have 128mb of memory. Maybe not enough.
