Well last night I had no problems with my mouse or any other computer related issues. Untill right before I wanted to goto bed, I moved files off a flashdrive onto my external drive then back onto my computer. I installed PGP and it asked to restart and I did. Then when I rebooted I got a blue screen of death and then I restarted again and I got to the log on screen but my mouse wouldnt move. Its a USB but I have been using an adapter that came with it so I could free up my USB ports. The blue screen was somthing about ATIVVX.dll page paged in a non paged area or somthing?

PGP encrypts your data on your computer. http://www.pgp.com/
but I never got to fully run it. After I installed it said restart? so I did. And now my mouse wont move. When I use the adapter for the mouse, it wont light up but when I use usb it will light up but I still cant move it.

Thought I recognised the name from somewhere.
Which files or folders were you attempting to encrypt?

Are you certain the error message said ativvx.dll? This is not one I recognise but if the name is correct, then it would suggest an ATI video driver file. Do you have an ATI card?

I didnt get to encrypt any files, I just installed and then it asked to reboot and I get to the log in screen which then my mouse will not budge.
The error im sure had ATIVVX [maybe 1-2 letters].dll I only got it once and it dumped all the physical memory to the disk. Hasnt happend since.

Yes, I shut down my computer left it off for a bit and came back. Powered it up and now here I am. When I tried to boot with my external hdd I got the same blue screen of death:

Machine_Check_Expection
stop: 0x0000009c (0x00000004, 0x80545FF0, 0Xb2000000, 0x00070F0F)

And when I logged in I got Windows has recovered from a serious error:
BCCode : 50 BCP1 : FFFFFFC9 BCP2 : 00000001 BCP3 : BFCB7FE6
BCP4 : 00000000 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 768_1

Its working fine right now. Not sure for how long.

I assuming the external drive is USB, right?
The 9c stop error normally indicates a hardware fault of some kind, as opposed to file or software corruption etc.
The fact that the problems seem to be with your USB devices & nothing else, would suggest this might be the best place to start looking.
Have you checked the USB controller status in device manager for any errors?

OK, then check the firewire status as well.
