Maybe an IRQ problem. I had a problem with this lady's computer where if i had both the mouse and keyboard plugged into the ps2 connectors and i tried to type something the mouse and keyboard would freeze. I took the ps2 adapter out and plugged the mouse into the usb and it worked. You can try that, or just get a new mouse/keyboard.

Uh...What kind of mouse is it?
Also, what other kinds of input devices do you have (or have used) on that machine?
These are important questions.

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...
