My mouse keeps locking or freezing randomly for some reason. The only way to unfreeze it is to press the side arrow keys or cntrl+alt+del then pressing the arrow keys. After the arrow keys are pressed a number of beeps are emitted from the computer and the mouse unlocks. This happens very frequently. I've checked the device from the control panel and it says that it's working properly. It's a regular ball mouse.

Have you tried downloading more RAM? :)

More to the point, have you tested your RAM for errors?

Calm down Mate, we do not ask these questions just for the fun of it. Not having much ram can result in your resources using the Ram up very easily. If you want to find out what ram you are using, just do the following : Click, start, Control panel, system. The next page is system properties. When that page comes up you will see how much ram you have at the bottem of the page. For example I am using 3 Gig. If you are using 512MBs or less, it might make a big difference. Hope that helps.

It says 384 MB of RAM.

However, my mouse has worked fine for the last 5 years or so, so I have no idea what's wrong.

I have not tested my ram for errors. I do not know how.

Anyone?

By the way, the sound emmited sounds like something when you press the shift key more than 5 times, or when you insert a keyboard or mouse in. It's a beep, except this one is much longer, it's one long beeb, after pressing some random buttons it beeps a couple more times. My mouse is dead. :)

Have you tried a different mouse?
Is there only one beep? This could mean there is a memory refresh error..
What OS are you using? (Vista,XP etc)

XP. It's more than one beep, and I'm sure it's the mouse's fault somehow.I haven't tried a different mouse because I don't have another one at the moment.

It freezes constantly, it's very annoying.

you need to get your hands on a different mouse to test with (i'd say it's something physically in the mouse that's wrong not the system) that should be your first step
