my mouse cursor (the triangle thing) freezes for 1-2 seconds at completly random times now , what determined me to not buy another one is this after the freeze ends the Computer makes a sound like....like when you extract a .rar file and its done , that sound , and now i know its a virus or a malware , i just need to find it anti virus cant detect it...!
Little background: computer was working like a charm on Windows 7 Ultimate, 64bits. A week ago, I started to have BSOD everytime I left the computer for around 10/15 minutes. I updated a lot of drivers etc.. then I formatted my C:/ and reinstalled Windows (still 7 ultimate x64 )So fresh install, antivirus scan is ok, graphic drivers updated, all windows updates done, I even updated the firmware of my SSD (Crucial 64Go) on which Windows is installed and flashed my bios to the latest version.Now, still after a while, my computer "semi-freezes" : depending of my use at the time, a video playing will stop, a browser will stay on the page but won't open new pages and a click on a folder of my Desktop will open a blank folder. I can't Ctrl+Alt+Suppr either.
This happened on a previous computer running Vista Home. The cursor will temporarily freeze/hesitate with the new hardware recognized, sound alert. With the previous computer, after much grief, it was determined the processor was failing.
This is an entirely new assembly with Windows 7 - 64 bit installed.

All drivers are current. No matter what mouse I use, this cursor hesitation with the new hardware sound alert happens and is happening with continuing frequency.
I set up an alternative wireless mouse, and I'm currently switching back and forth, when one fails the other one works.
For a little while I have had a problem with my mouse cursor sticking inside of windows and even icons on the taskbar. It shakes back and forth and won't allow me to move past the icon or window it's stuck in.This begins happening at random while I am doing "whatever". I haven't been able to isolate it as occurring when I am doing a certain task. I have already tried the following. (which everybody keeps telling me over and over)
1. Closing each program 1 by 1 to see if it stops.
2. Using a different mouse - Both do the same thing.
3. Rebooting - Real fun trying to save my work 20 minutes into being booted up when I can't even move from window to window properly.
4. Getting the newest mouse drivers.
5. Making sure that my graphics tablet pen isn't laying too near the tablet.
In both IE Opera and yahoo messenger if the cursor touches either side or top/bottom of screen window is immediately minimized I went to Microsoft.com to reload drivers and software for my Microsoft 6000 wireless and there has been an update and it is now the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center which is installed on my computer
My desktop computer came with Windows Vista 64 bit and it is an HP. I upgraded to windows 7 and since then my mouse has been freezing and sluggish when trying to do things in the browser (Mozzilla) or just going through documents. I have tried several mouses a USB and a wireless and still having the same problem. Is my computer not suited for Windows 7?
A few nights ago I came home to my Win 7 64 bit desktop frozen in a busy state. Windows was running, but the cursor was indicating busy and the computer was locked up. After 10 minutes of waiting for it to respond (hitting Ctrl+Alt+Del or Ctrl+Shift+Del had no response), I did a hard reboot (held down power button until the computer restarted). When the computer booted back up - I saw a "Resuming Windows" screen rather than "Starting Windows." Windows did load, and while everything appeared to run fine (Start menu would open and cursor was okay), no programs would open after clicking on them, and task manager would not appear. Fed up, I did another hard reboot. This time, Windows did not boot. The Windows 7 logo appears, gets very dim, and after a while a 0xed (Unmountable boot volume) BSOD appears and the computer restarts.
The fun really begins when trying to launch Windows Setup, any of the three safe modes, or last known good configuration. In the safe mode scenarios, safe mode never loads (gets hung up while loading drivers). For last known good configuration, I get the same BSOD. The really interesting part is Windows Setup. Windows setup loads (you see the loading bar), and then goes to a black screen. After a while (15-60 minutes), a cursor appears on the screen. You can move the cursor around - but that's it. Ctrl+Alt+Del has no effect. I've left the computer on for 24+ hours at this point - nothing else happens. I have a separate Windows 7 64 bit repair CD as well as a Windows 7 64 bit ERD CD. When forcing the computer to boot off the CDs, the same exact scenario occurs. Windows Setup loads...then black screen. Booted off an Ubuntu live CD - the harddrives (I have three) are all fine. Data is okay, SMART tests all pass. If I could just get to a place where I could run something like chkdsk or some fixboot commands - I'd probably be okay. But anytime I try to boot/run some Windows based software - everything goes to crap.
My next step (which I will probably work on tonight/tomorrow) is to remove the harddrive that has Windows installed on it (a ~70 GB hdd), hook it up to another computer through a USB cable system that will make it look like an external harddrive, and hopefully run chkdsk on it that way. I'm posting here to see if anyone has any suggestions or ideas though. It blows my mind that whatever is wrong with my Windows installation is somehow blocking a windows repair disc from loading.
I never get a blue screen, the computer never just restarts, the mouse just seems to stop moving, and this has been happening since I got my computer about 3 months ago. Whenever this happens all I can do is turn the power off and restart. Going through my event logs the only common occurrence is that right before I am turning off my computer I get "Filter Manager - Event ID - 6". This is not recorded as an error, but happens right before "Kernel Power - Event ID - 41" which I believe is when I push the power button to restart.
On booting up today, there was no mouse cursor in the centre of the screen. I discovered that if I operate the mouse quickly, the cursor would appear from the top right corner of the screen but as soon as I stop the mouse, the cursor moves quickly back to the top right corner and disappears. I do not have the time to click on anything. Is there anything simple that I can do without calling in a computer technician? oldherper has chosen the best answer to his/her question.Click here to view the answer that was selected.
Lately I have problems with my pc, sometimes the windows blocks/freeze and I must restart from the button; this happens like 1 time in 3 hours or 1 time in 7 days, it's random. The image freeze even if the pc is in idle. I have found another problem, the mouse cursor freeze for 2 sec (the image doesn't freeze, only the cursor), and after it's coming back to normal. I tried with several mouse's. I tried with another HDD and I have the same problem..
When i start the computer i usually need to give between 1 and 5 restarts for the mouse to work.The keyboard ctrl+alt+delete,arrow keys,enter work,but the alt+tab i saw it didn't work.No potential harmful applications running at start(not instartupfolder/msconfig/registry).Tried disabling the windows scheduler.i would also like a more detailed explanation of the resolving process since i am not so good with computers.
anyone know where to download custom mouse cursors for windows 7 preferably a trusted site that wont blow up my computer. im just looking for something different i got an amazing background and downloaded rocketdock so only think left in appearance is the cursor.

I have just installed Seven(7100), I like it (it seems like a better Vista version ) but I have some mouse issues, it is a bit hard to explain but when I rollover a link, a folder, a button ... it freezes for few millisecs.Is it a video driver problem ? A mouse driver problem ? Seven automatically installed the graphic driverHere are my specifications : VGNFE21BCore Duo 1.66 GHz1 GB (DDR2 SDRAM)NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400It is not great but should be sufficient, I had no problems with XP and was a bit slow with Vista but have not encountered this current problem.
I have built a new computer and am currently tryin to install windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. My mouse and keyboard light up and work in the bios screen but once i get to the windows install screen that asks me to pick a time zone my mouse and keyboard freeze and thier lights turn off. I checked my bios to see if legacy was enabled which it is. I have a brand new comp and i cant use it. I have an asus p9x79 motherboard.
I have a dell vostro 420, and I want to install windows 7 32bit home edition.
I was running xp fine untill a while ago. I was having hard drive problems.
I ended up getting a replacement hard drive, which is now in my PC.
I tried to do a clean install of 7, but the mouse and keyboard froze during install.
I'm able to install xp, which works fine, but would rather be running windows 7!
how can I fix this!?
I did manage to get it up and running eventually on the old hard drive-after turning off and on many many times during install due to mouse/keyboard freezes! and general 'hanging' at points during install
windows 7 then locked up my mouse keyboard after a few seconds or minutes (or froze?)
Another minor, but nonetheless annoying and recurring problem. Even while CPU usage is very low (2%-8% of Core i7-975), frequently the mouse pointer freezes for 1 or 3 seconds on the desktop, then jumps instantly to where I was trying to direct it before it froze momentarily. There is randomly 2-10 seconds of proper mouse-pointer functioning between the freeze-up/hesitations. It keeps doing this repeatedly for as long as 10-15 minutes at a time. And it often happens when there is little or no applications load on the system. I checked Norton by chance it was running a scan in the background... nada. I checked "processes" and "services" running and found nothing unusual. I checked the batteries in my wireless Microsoft ARC mouse and they are full-charged.
System is Windows 7 home 64 bit with amd athlon II 255 Processor 3.10 GHz and 4gb of ram. Avast anti-virus. I have windows firewall on, but haven't really made any other changes.My cursor flashes the busy symbol about once every 4-5 seconds, and it does so whenever the mouse is on the desktop or anywhere it shows the regular icon. When inside this text window it changes to the text cursor and ceases to flash, however. I changed the icon only to have the new one act the same.
My mouse cursor stopped moving and I removed the stick because it seemed to be interfering with the USB.The next day, I was playing a game and the keys were malfunctioning and typing more than one letter each or the wrong letter altogether. I tried another keyboard and got similar, yet different errors. One keyboard types hn instead of n. The other won't type certain letters at all, like d or g. I couldn't even log into windows without using the cursor keypad to log in. The language settings are OK. I re-installed the drivers for keyboard and mouse. No dice. Sometimes the mistakes would change. H works now, but was zh a minute ago. I finally did a system repair and afterwards, I could log into windows again. I then typed every letter of the alphabet into Google and there were no problems, but 10 seconds later, the problem is back. Does this sound like a keyboard controller problem?I could type my password when running system repair, so the keyboard works in the boot area. Just not anywhere from windows log on or further.
Here's an example of the alphabet when typing without me correcting it.

sometimes, all of a sudden my mouse cursor gets bigger, like, twice the size. it doesn't look pixelated or edgy. it just doubles in sizes. my current work around is to go to "change how mouse pointer looks" select the aero_arrow file and hit apply. then the mouse is cursor is back to normal.
While I'm typing text into any program (email, Word, etc), the cursor will auto-move to wherever the mouse pointer would be (sort of like the setting is on that does auto-select/click when it sits on something). I then end up typing into a completely different part of the message/document and it's SO frustrating. There's no rhyme or reason to when it occurs, at least not that I can figure out.
It's nothing to do with my mouse/drivers - it happens with both my trackpad and my USB mouse.
I have an odd issue, that from my knowledge has only started recently. That is that my left mouse button lags quite a bit. This is most notable when i drag windows, as it would randomly select another window under the one i was dragging. Recently, it hasnt been clicking properly, i would have to hold the button down for a shot while (only a very shot moment, but it is very annoying and noticable) for it to click. I have an A4 Tech x7 lasermouse that has been working perfectly for years, it is only in the last few days that this problem has been occuring. I have ran virus scans and checked mouse settings in control panel without success.
I can't see my mouse cursor (Logitech vx revolution) in media center. Is this the way it's supposed to work?
Any suggestions for getting my mouse cursor to be visible in MC?
Edit: It seems using an external display (while using laptop) is part of the problem. Switching MC to windowed mode enables me to see the mouse. So just can't use full screen mode and see the mouse cursor. Weird.
