So, lets try to limit that. Go to BIOS and set the ram to 3gb. Then try.
I don't believe it to be a memory issue. I did not mention it before, but my board is not overclocked. I did change the BIOS timing settings to match that of my hi-speed RAM, but also ran memtest to confirm the timings created no memory errors. The two 2GB DDR3 sticks are good.
As I mentioned, I had no problems whatsoever when running on Vista 64.
Out of all the USB peripherals attached to my computer, only the mouse fails. Today, I've been cranking out 3D renderings, with 2 USB external hard drives, USB scanner, and USB printer operating with no issues. Mouse still freezes, but unplugging it and replugging frees it up, so I'm still up and running albeit with some manual intervention.
There are some tests (MSDN, Intel, and USB.org) that measure USB controller and hub compliance. When I get a chance, I'll see if those tests will help me pinpoint the issues. I'm also going to put Vista 64-bit back on my computer on a separate dual boot partition so I can compare results.
My computer is running great; it's only the damn mouse problem that's driving me nuts.
