Hello Everyone: I just bought a HP 533W Computer with preinstalled xp, and It looked good (in the box) but come to find out it has a combo cdrw-dvdrom and the Monitor is a older looking one 17inch (looks like 15) but anyway i just got it has a backup to my main pc! But the mouse on this thing works good one minute then slows and even stops when surfing webpages! I adjusted the accelleration to highest and i uninstalled and reinstalled it, but still does the same thing, is there any adjustments i can do in the Advanced settings (Properties) that would help? Or does this have anything to do with the monitor? Anyone have this problem? Thanks, Tom

Have you tried take the mouse ball out and cleaning the insides. Dust gets wrapped around the rollers and can make the performance pretty bad.

Also sometimes they just get worn out and you need a new one.

If it's new and doesn't work, sounds like a call to HP. You might want to try another mouse just in case. It might save you the hours they'll keep you on the phone ;-)

I switched my old mouse to this New PC (on it now) and it works great, there is not even a hint of slow ups or stops, it has lightning speed! So i guess the new mouse must be defective after-all Right?
