    I have recently replaced a defunct hard drive with a new one, at the same time replacing 1gb RAM with 4gb. I now find that my Microsoft wireless mouse reacts very slowly. I have to click a number of times before a file opens or a menu item responds. The cursor moves at a normal speed. Is it anything to do with the new hard drive (seems unlikey) or is the mouse on its way out?

    The mouse probably needs replaced. they do get worn out sometimes.the hard drive has nothing to do with how a mouse works or doesnt work.if its wireless the batteries might need replacing.

    I tend to notice having problems with my MS Wireless mice (I have 7 of them) when the battery is getting close to need replacement. Might try that.
