    I have a Compaq Presario w/ a Athlon 64 3800+2.4GHz processor, Media Center, 512 MB RAM. Windows XP with a "old" Logitech Optical mouse that a friend gave me. At times the mouse seems to quit working at times when I move the cursor pretty fast, it seems to freeze in place and I get an audible sound that kinda like a "duh duh, duh duh" (similar to a "chime" sound as best as I can describe it) then it's like the mouse catches up with the cursor and then continues to work. I know this question sounds a little stupid. Has anyone got any idea as to what is taking taking place. This does not take happen all the time but is just a little annoying. This computer is a little less than one year old. Maybe I am expecting too much. Thanks in advance for ANY input.

    I would say you are getting delays because you don't have enough
    system memory and windows is having to use the page file and slowing
    it down.
    Adding another 512MB memory should help a lot.

    i agree you need at least another 512mb memory, & also try slowing your mouse back a bit, in control panel - mouse settings ............
