Hey everyone, new here. No one, even Compaq, can figure this problem out. Most times this happens when I am opening IEXPLORER or sometimes it just seems to happen after it's open. I will attempt to open IEXPLORER and my mouse will hang (stop responding) for about a second, then jump back into action. Say like opening up the web browser, and moving your mouse around in a circle, it stops even though you are still moving it.

It also does this just when NOTHING is open on the desktop. Just stops for about a second, then springs back. Here's a list of thinngs I have tried;

Destructive Restore
Took mouse apart, cleaned ball and sensors
New mouse connected, same issue

Windows XP Home Edition
Vers 2002
Service Pack 1

Compaq Presario
AMD AthlonXP 2000+
1.67 GHz
224 MB Ram

Anything else anyone needs to know, just let me know.

The problem is likely that something is causing the PC to run at 100%, so the mouse does not get recognised while that is happening.

Don't blame the mouse in that case.

Rune the Task Manager (Alt - Ctrl - Del) and keep the Performance tab open, see what the % of CPU is when it happens?
