Mouse PS/2 and USB random freeze
Mouse freezing on PS/2 port and now USB at startup and while working with it.
I really need some help with this one guys and gals.
I've been working on an HP computer about 4 years old, running XP Pro SP2 all updates.
Running AVG,Sygate. Did have Norton, MacAfee, and AVG all running at once but got that solved. No firewall
I've gotten the updates, what there are, from HP
I've been into safe mode to check for ghost mice, none there.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers and just let the native Windoze drivers have a go.
I've removed all malware, checked for viruses.
PS/2 port I think has been burnt as it has been unplugged and wiggled all while the computer was running a whole lot, so that may be the problem there.
I then switched to one of my USB wireless mice that I have and it worked fine while I had it here at the house and I ran that computer through it's paces too for over a week. Not once did the mouse freeze, whether at startup or while working. So I thought I had it figured out.
Took computer back to office, got PS/2 > USB adapter and plugged mouse into USB port and it was working fine when I left.
Now I'm getting reports that it is still freezing up.
I'm just at a loss as to what it could be now. I would say the mouse itself but on the PS/2 port it froze with my test mouse too so I'm unsure about that.
The computer other than that is working fine, the keyboard has not been an issue through this whole thing, has had no problems at all.
Tell your friends and loved ones what they mean to you, it could be your last chance to do so.
