  1. Mouse and screen keep freezing up randomly for around 0.5 - 1 second


    I was playing Spellbreak when this started happening. For context, I was using my GPU to mine ethereum for about 4 weeks prior to this. I would leave my computer running overnight using a program called MSI Afterburner to limit power to 80%, memory clock to 699 MHz, and automatic fan speed. My mouse is a Razer Death Adder from around 8-10 years ago, but this is also happening while using a cheap mouse from Walmart. The keyboard doesn't seem to freeze, only the mouse does and whatever is on the screen does. Today I used Windows 10's Reset This PC feature (keep my files option), but even afterwards this issue was still happening. I am in the process of downloading the latest Windows Updates and NVIDIA GeForce Experience to update GPU drivers, but I feel as though the problem will still be there (will close this post if the issue no longer appears).

    Is there a way to automatically detect my PC's specs? I don't know of a way, but here is what I know:

    NVIDIA RTX 2080
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8600K CPU @ 3.60GHz 3.60 GHz
    16GB RAM

    - - - Updated - - -

    Just discovered something else - even if I disconnect the 2 monitors I had connected into the GPU and only run the old monitor I have plugged into the motherboard, the freezing still occurs. Does this mean that this isn't related to my GPU?

    :)

    Mouse Freezing every 30 seconds

    I have a strange problem, pissing me off especially when I try to play BF2142. My mouse randomly freezes, sometimes every 5 minutes, sometimes 5 times a minute. Also it freezes for 2 minutes sometimes, and for 2 seconds other times..... WTF!! I plugged in a standard PS2 mouse and that one works great ALL the time, but the USB mouse keeps doin this crap for a week now. I've done a few virus scans but nothing. Any ideas?

  3. Windows 10 freezes randomly


    I had already tried turning off fast startup, to no avail.
    Will look at the list you provided, thanks. Hard to do when computer freezes on the Windows loading screen though. *Biggrin
    I had tried that as well... no result.

    Mouse Cursor on second screen changes randomly

    • Did the issue only occur when you updated your graphics card?
      • Appears to have only begun with the new graphics card. It's an AMD RX480 card. I uninstalled all Nvidia drivers prior to installing the new AMD drivers. It doesn't occur on the first monitor, only second. Which would indicate either something in the
        translation between monitors or something along those lines.
    • Are your drivers up to date?
      • From my understanding they all are, I try to keep everything up to date.
    • Have you checked if the problem is the mouse itself?
      • I do not currently have a second mouse, but the fact that it's only when it tracks to the second screen. On first screen everything is good. The normal cursor displays, but when I track to the second screen that's when the weirdness happens.
    • Are you using a wired mouse
      • Yes
