mouse locks up intermittently

Hello!Hope I'm in the right area.
For the last few months my mouse has been freezing(1-5 sec's on average)quite regularly.before that there where no issues.
now I have tried pretty much everything imaginable:
4 different mice(3 diff brands)
reformat
diff hard drive
diff bios
tried all 4 sticks of ram seperately
tried video cards seperately(3 diff driver versions)
with/without sound card
every usb port
no o/c

It happens pretty much any time,desktop/websurfing/gaming
It also happens in the Bios.I have a bad feeling its the mobo,Thoughts?

Earnhardt,
Welcome to SevenForums.

What anti-virus/anti-spyware/firewall software are you using?

Try to not have any more programs open at any one time than absolutely needed.

Install CCleaner:
CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

list of STARTUP PROGRAMS

CCleaner | Tools
icon | Startup button | Windows tab |
click on Save to text file button (bottom right side) |
accept Startup.txt as file name | SAVE button

list of SCHEDULED TASKS

CCleaner | Tools
icon | Startup button | Scheduled Tasks tab |
click on Save to text file button (bottom right side) |
enter Scheduled Tasks as File name | Save button

List of INSTALLED PROGRAMS

CCleaner | Tools
icon | Uninstall button |
click on Save to text file button (bottom right side) |
accept install.txt as File name | Save button


UPLOAD the startup.txt file
UPLOAD the Scheduled Tasks.txt file
UPLOAD the install.txt file.

From reserach I think you need to check your PSU, that model is notoriuosly under powered especially in the graphics power. The lowish capability of the cards doesn't help, to me the problem seems to be a redraw\refresh rate of where the pointer should be.
It's worth checking out.

could you try again on the scheduled tasks? List is empty which is very unusual.

Oh yes, current CCleaner version is 3.18.1707

I don't know if that is why the list is empty as I've never had an empty list on any version.

So far I've found nothing wrong in your install list, but still need to check a couple of them.

If you simply power up your computer and ONLY browse the internet-no team speak, no social sites, then does the cursor still freeze?

It freezes just on the desktop with no open programs and In the UEFI bios as well.
