Mouse Pointer freezing on Vista Intermittently

Hi, I have just set up 3 brand new (sealed in box) SAmsung Q45 laptops (2.2 dual core - 2GB Ram). All three of them are showing the same problem. From time to time the mouse pointer will freeze on the screen for around 3-5 seconds and the things will continue as normal. Obviously no virus / spyware etc as brand new and no additional program conflicts as nothing has been installed on them. I read in a forum that turning off Aero mouse pointers could help - don that but still no change.

I have contacted Samsung and they have no answers apart from it must be some problem with Vista. Tried re-installing one laptop from disks - no difference.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

    Thanks to those who tried to help. The problem still exists however. I have contacted Samsung and they have no idea what the problem is either. I have tried a wired mouse but the same things happens. As said earlier, the laptops may go for 2 days without a fault then for the next hour will freeze up every 5 minutes or so for a few seconds each time. domp8

Try to install the service packs and updates. You might want to save the downloaded files while you're at it. In case it works you need those for the other 2 machines. hope it helps

    try to see the Performance tab in the Task Manager at the moment the mouse freezes. You might get some hint there.

    Did you try an external mouse?

    Lastly, Samsung support tech should solve it!

How to remove Ubuntu from a Vista dual-boot config

On my new PC I wanted (still want) to have toa go with Linux. I chose to experiment with Ubuntu. I downloaded thedesktop CD, burned it, freed up some disk space (inside Vista) andloaded up Ubuntu from the CD. After some experimenting I figured outhow to install Ubuntu in the empty disk space and it all worked fine(GRUB took over my booting (recognized Vista automatically!) and Ubuntuloaded up fine).

Then I tried to install my GPU drivers andeverything went wrong.. For some reason Ubuntu wouldn't boot anymore(failed to load X-Server or something). I was completely lost andwanted to remove Ubuntu.

This is where things start to get really messy!

Ifyou simply remove the Ubuntu partition, GRUB (Linux boot loader) willstill be on your PC (in control). It will trip out, as the Ubuntupartition will be removed.. Bad thing!

So you need to restore your Master Boot Record (MBR) for Vista (so that Vista will handle the booting, not GRUB).

Googleonly pointed me to sites that explained how to REMOVE VISTA, whichisn't what I wanted. Many sites talked about the 'fixmbr' command, butthis is really only available in Windows XP.

So how do you restore your MBR for Windows Vista?

1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when you are prompted.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
7. Type Bootrec.exe /FixMbr, and then press ENTER.

That'sit. Now when you reboot your PC, Vista will load automatically... Youcan now safely boot using your Ubuntu desktop CD, to use the built inGnome Partition Manager to remove your Ubuntu partition!

SIR, I WANT TO KNOW HOW TO CHECH AND


hi firstly, the only way to increase your video card memory will be to purchase a pci-e graphics card for your system, system memory could do with putting up if you are playing games as that amount will just about run windows itself, if you have an onboard graphics card these are not very good to play top end games like COD MW2, and things like that, get a 1 gb graphics card for your system this should play 99% of all games out there, and as i said get more system memory at least 2gb ddr2 is what you need especially as you have a dual core this will help you allot, there is a site that has very good priced graphic cards here..www.ebuyer.com try them hope this helps..ps i am a gamer myself..

The specs of my laptop is dual core processor T3200, (2.0GHZ), 667 MHz Fsb, 1mb(cache)

1. click start menu
2. Control panel
3. search for performance on your search box
4. click performance info tools
5. click adjust visual effect
6. click the box with best performance

and there it will go like it is a CPU.
