Unexplained pause after key press

By Aravon ·
Recently, I notice a strange problem.
The mouse pointer freeze for a few seconds after I press a key on the keyboard. When I press a key down without releasing it, the mouse cannot function at all. e.g I cannot perform Alt-click or Ctrl-click.

I installed a new printer(USB) few days ago but I don't know if the problem exist before or after.

Spec: XP with SP2, 1GRAM, Wireless keyboard and mouse.

USB Issue

Sounds like a driver issue tied to the USB port.

Update your drivers on the devices would be the best first course of action.

Problem solved

It's simple! After installed the new printer, I also place the keyboard at a new position such that the keyboard was in the way between the mouse and its reciever. By re-position the reciever, no more mouse freeze when the keyboard is being used.
