  1. Windows freezes but I'm still able to move the mouse


    This problem started a few days ago.

    What happens is that the pc freezes and I'm not able to click on anything, if I'm playing a video it keeps on sounding and I'm still able to move the mose. The only thing I can do to fix it is restarting the machine.


    My pc has these specs:


    ryzen 5 3600

    gigabyte 2070 super

    600w psu

    b450 mobo

    1 sata of 1tb ssd

    1 nvme of 1tb ssd

    :)

  3. Mouse Freezing need help pls.

    Hi Ephraim,

    User profile corruption can cause issues with certain devices, including your optical mouse, in
    Windows 10. To better assist you, we need the answers to the following questions:

    • Aside from changing USB ports, did you use a different mouse to see if the same issue will occur while playing games?
    • Have you tried checking the manufacturer's website for updated mouse drivers for
      Windows 10?

    In the meantime, we suggest creating a new user on your computer to see if your mouse still freezes while using a different local account. To do this, simply follow the steps in this

    article
    .

    Regards.

    Mouse freezing

    Hi Kerby,

    If your mouse is freezing or is stuck, it could be due to outdated mouse drivers, or that it could point out to be a hardware-related problem. For us to isolate the issue in using your mouse, kindly respond to the questions below:

    • Are you using the touch pad of your laptop or are you using an external USB mouse? If you are using an external USB mouse, are you able to use the mouse when you connect it to another computer? This is for us to see if the issue is hardware-related or not.
    • When did the issue start to occur? Did it happen after installing an update or an app?

    We look forward to your prompt response.
