When you boot, press F8 to reach the windows menu and select Safe mode. Clean and Defrag the disk. Go in the Device Manager and erase the entries under Graphic-Controller. Then reboot.

Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 7000.


Hi


It is not the problem with the mouse
Since you have said
"I have to key in Ctrl-Alt-Delete to unfreeze it"

Which means an application in the os is taking a lot of memory and cpu consumption
thats why it seems not working

******************
To confirm it(Whether mouse is causing trouble)) try running any live operating system(Linux,ubuntu,suse,fedora..etc) or different os(LInux...etc)and check whether the problem still persists

if yes leave me a comment . i will help you out

hope this will help you

A disk read error occurred. the comp. said press ctrl+alt+del


The computer cannot find the operating system, the disk error message means it cannot find the hard disk, you most likely have a faulty hard disk or less likely a faulty disk controller.

You can test the hard disk by removing it and connecting it to a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect this drive as an external drive then you will know your hard drive is faulty ad you need to buy a new one and install Windows and programs etc..

Problem with a disk read error


There are a couple of possibilities.

1. The hard drive is defective.

2. The operating system is corrupt.

The easiest way to test this is to run the restore cd that came with the computer to reload Windows.

If you get this error while running the restore cd then you will need to get a new hard drive.
