    Man, I've got a P2 400 here with 287 Mg RAM and I've freshly formated the hard drive. But my mouse seems to be the last thing on the priority list. When Im pulling up web pages, the mouse freezes till it loads. When I load up Dreamweaver the mouse gets almost non-functional. Is there something Im missing here? (besides a P4 2.0G, which is on the way, but this PC will be net'd out to the garage)

    check to see what all is running in the background.. even though you have that much physical memory in your computer you might be using up so much of it that its locking up a little.... Just a thought...

    My only guess would be maybe the IRQ?? Maybe your mouse has the wrong IRQ set. What OS are you running and what IRQ is it using?

    98 SE. The mouse is on IRQ 12. Dont guess there is a way to DMA the mouse A? /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif Wouldn't that be the fix for this situation?

    I have only the basics running. Norton AV, systray, etc. etc. No PC anywhere or web servers or and jibber jabber like that.
