Windows 7: I have an interesting problem with win7 32 bit

I have an interesting problem with win7 32 bit

I just found out that after the last partition wipe and reinstall of Windows 7 I forgot to install the Ati drivers. I have been running on the Windows generic Ati video driver all this time. I am wondering if the lack of the correct video drivers was causing this problem?

I am running Windows 7 32bit (I am pretty sure it is the home addition) on a Gateway model MD2614U laptop. This is a random problem. Sometimes when I am working on something (it doesn't matter what it is that I am working on) I go to click on like a go button, a next button or try to open a dir or start a prog (it also affects the scroll bar). If it is down in the lower right side of the screen. Nothing happens. I can sit all day and try to click on it and nothing happens. sometimes if I close the prog that will fix it. Also if I move what I am trying to click on away from the lower right side of the screen with the mouse I can then click on it and make it work. I have tryed uninstalling the prog's (the main progs effected are Firefox and a Windows Explorer like prog) thay will work ok for a wile then start acting up agen. I also tryed a cold reboot (pulling the main battery and ac power). That sometimes helps and sometimes it don't. It is so very frustrating, like if I am in the middle of doing an online survey and it acts up. Anyone have any ideas? The big question is, is this a hardware or a software issue? If it is a software issue. All prog's on the laptop are backed up on a, known clean, external usb hard drive and/or dvd's. I learned that lesson the hard way a few yrs back. Also the task bar on the bottom and the clock seems to be unaffected.
