I recently overclocked the cpu to running at 2400 rather then 2200, seemed to be running fine for a week or so. but yesturday my mouse seem to just go crazy keeps freezing and jumping. my freind had the same problem when he overclocked his but after he took of his overclock it all stopped. however mine still remains, it is a cheap optical ps2 mouse. and is seriously annoying me because it makes the pc unuseable. if anyones ever had this problems or knows what it is or how to sort it out it could be greatly apriciated. cheers people

ive never had that problem. But i would try a different mouse, just to see if that was the problem. If the mouse came with drivers or something, try uninstalling those.

I agree try a second mouse, also possibly one using a different connection (usb or ps/2) that your current mouse if that doesn't help.

Also, make sure the plastic focus plate covering the CMOS sensor and LED on the underside of the mouse is clean and free of dust and dirt.
