Question about GE ho97986 Mouse
I am using a GE mouse model 97986 Rev 3. Sometimes when loading windows xp or when I have a program running that uses alot of memory, the mouse pointer will freeze up. However the mouse still moves and clicks, it is just impossible to tell where the mouse is without holding down the left button and dragging. I am using the default windows mouse drivers as the mouse did not come with any specific drivers. I have even recently upgraded my memory from 256 to 768, and it did not solve the problem. Tried uninstalling the drivers and forcing windows to reinstall and that is the only thing that works, however it is only temporary (may work anywhere from 10 minutes to a week). Any suggestions?
Someone is having similar problem with their GE 97986 optical mouse. Solution is uninstall the previous driver and install GE driver for 97986 mouse. Dunno if the solution helps or not but if you are looking for the driver, here is GE Optical Mouse 97986 Driver. Apparently currently no support for Windows Vista.

I had same problem. While I have only recently "fixed" it, I'm not sure how long-term the solution is, yet. From control panel, double-click mouse, select the "Hardware" tab and choose "Properties" button. Select the "Advanced Settings" tab, and lower the "Sample Rate" to 60 reports/second. Mine was set at 100 r/s. I also increased the input buffer to 120 (having no idea of what a normal buffer size might be). Anyway, on reboot, it worked (which is significant progress, since every reboot before, I had to uninstall drivers, remove mouse cord, scan for changes, plug in mouse, then scan for changes again, /sigh). Good luck.
