When I am playing ANY game on my computer, or things that run the CPU at 100% anything (including the mouse) has a delayed reaction, then once it does press the button it seems to hold it in for a period of time, such as 4 – 5 seconds.
Let me tell you, I have done everything I can. I am running out of ideas. The last thing I can think of is going on every single computer help forum I know and posting this question.
I DID have ATI Tray Tools, A program that is an alternative to ATI’s Catalyst Control Center. I do have both of them running. I also recently (due to reading some threads) uninstalled ATI Tray Tools. Problem still persists. I have reinstalled my Keyboard drivers, mouse drivers, video drivers, and reset ATI Catalyst to factoring settings, I’ve turned off the AGP speed (just to see what would happen) and it still persists.
Now you probably are saying “AGP? How old is this computer?” The specifications of this computer are listed below:
Microsoft Windows XP
Service Pack 3
Pentium® 4 CPU 2.66GHz
2.66 GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM
ATI Radeon 9600
Core Clock: 324 MHz
Microsoft Natural® MultiMedia Keyboard 1.0A
Logitech UltraX Optical USB Mouse
I can’t give you the exact specs of the motherboard but it is an IBM Think Centre. The BIOS was updated like only 6 - 7 Months ago (Basically when I first installed the system), and the last update was in like 2005 – 2006. Anyway, I am pulling hairs out on this and I really need any suggestion you can throw at me and I will do it. The computer was doing fine for months. And it just started going downhill…
So to sum it up: keyboard and mouse randomly freeze in any game that uses the CPU up to 100%. I need any help I can get.
PS I have attached a Hijack This log to the post. If you need it.
