Mouse locking screen

By deane ·
Have win98SE with 64Mb RAM and random mouse hanging. sometimes locks and must physically re-boot, sometimes only need to Soft-boot and end task. Very inconsistant occurances. Dosen't matter which programs I am running. Other times I can load many programs up and hot key between them with no problems. Any suggestions

1. Check for viruses.

2. Change mouse, and note changes in behavior.

Slow down your video accelerator by going to display,then settings and advance. This will correct the problem if your asking the video card to work harder than it can. If this doesn't correct the problem then simple install a updated mouse driver orselect the driver for a Microsoft mouse.

I had a similar situation. I tried #2's answer about hardware acceleration and the problem happened less frequently. The problem was solved when I switched out the memory with another computer. Doesn't hurt to try.
