  1. Hi guys, first post on this site, hope u can help.

    This has been doing my nut for a few weeks now. I been getting what i think is some kinda usb quirk.. on desktop/in game [lesser extent], i get mouse/joystick (usb?) freeze that may last between 1-5 secs. these occur at varying times, sometimes i could go days without it, other times, like today, its happening every 5-10 mins or so.

    If im on desktop, i can unfreeze the mouse by hitting 'esc', where as in game, i have no option but to ride it out.. if im playing say battlefield2, i could be in a chopper... without warning, my cyborg evo ceases to respond, the chopper lists and inevitably crashes unless life returns in time for me to make some manner of recovery manoever :p

    My pc isnt that old (less than 6 months), ive built a few before, this one is otherwise very stable and gives me no issues. all drivers are latest etc..

    Spec:
    AMD64 3500
    Asus A8N SLI delux
    120bg/40gb ata's
    2gb ram
    XPsp2 fully up to date
    bfg 7800gt
    Audigy2 zs

    in case there are any known issues, ill let u know my peripherals:

    Nostromo Speedpad n52
    Saitek Eclipse keyboard
    Logitec g5 mouse
    Saitek Cyborg Evo.

    Any help, or ideas greatly received.
