Mouse & Computer Problems

By subzer0

  1. My mouse light repeatedly flickers and very often freezes up then works again. Occasionally, my computer boots w/o the mouse detected. I also get a "A USB device has malfunctioned" popup but I am definitely sure that the USB is NOT the problem, nor is it the mouse.
    My mouse happens to freeze most often when there is high memory usage on programs. This is most noticeable when firefox is open, where I can have up to 4 1-2 second freezes in 10 seconds. Once in awhile my mouse light goes out completely and I have to replug the USB back in.

    Another clue that might help solve the problem is that when I open task manager or any folder, the CPU usage shoots up to 80%.

    Im guessing that its either my graphics card or power supply or both. Help would be appreciated

    System Specs:
    AMD Athlon 64 2.0 ghz (Stock speed)
    2x512 PC3200 DDR OCZ RAM
    Windows XP SP2
    520W OCZ Modstream PSU
    160 GB Hard drive
    Razer Diamondback Mouse
    Logitech Elite Keyboard
    Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe nForce4 Mobo
    GeForce 6800GT 256MB (Stock speed)

    No it's not your graphics or your OCZ PSU (nice unit), but it very likely is a trojan or your mouse is just dieing. Can you plug the mouse into another USB port? When the the CPU goes to 80% what process do you see? Search for this exact name on google (if you don't recognize it, to see if it's a safe system file or a malicious one. Dwnload a freeware or trialware trojan killer from this site or do a google search yourself and run that.

    My mouse is not dying I am sure of it. Also, all the USB ports have the same problem. I couldn't find any bad processes, but can someone that knows how to use Hijack This check my log?
