Question about Motherboards
*** Before replying to this thread ***
Alright.. I've been having a lot of mouse accel problems ( started at the end of summer ), you might be thinking ' bah easy to fix', but, what's unusual, is that the mouse acceleration changes by itself. I can make it change by alt tabbing while playing counter strike source and then, getting back in the game, it can change a coupple times in an hour... Most people who have mouse acceleration problems are most of the time a constant mouse accel that was only changing ingame but not in windows. Mine stays in windows, even after restarting the pc. I tried pretty much everything that can be possibly done :
What I've tried to fix it.
- tried to force windows/css to stay with windows default accel/speed setting with setpoint ( I tried with it on and with it off, same result )
- downloaded the CPL mousefix ( which is supposed to disable almost ALL accel, I had twice more accel with it )
- looked if the enhance pointed precision was the problem ( it's off )
- I tried to add : -noforcemaccel -noforcemparms -noforcemspd
still not fixing this in the lauch option .
- Tried to delete css( uninstall ) and redownload it ( twice ) still the same problem.....
- setpoint, no smart move or trails, nor game detection and accel on OS ( xp ). Advanced settings only change is report rate to 1000. ( btw I've tried uninstalling it and SAME results ).
-clean format, twice
- I thought at first that it was the mouse ( G5, plugged in the usb port, NOT ps/2), but it did the same with 2 other mice.
-Windows XP SP3 ( did the same in SP2 )
-ASUS EN8600GT 256MB GDDR3
- 2GB 667 MHZ 2x1 GB
-Seagate Barracuda 160 GB
-AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+
I have the latest drivers for my gpu, but not for the motherboard I think..
BIOS Version ASUS M2NPV-VM ACPI BIOS Revision 1001
I haven't yet registered my motherboard since the serial is on the motherboad, I know it's as well on the box, but the guy who sold it to me had to take it off the box to get a 90$ rebate on my epson printer -_- lol.
* going to open the pc *
Thanks in advance !!!

( 0 view ) Will YOU be the C-C-COMBO BREAKER ?
Now this is going to be really hard to figure out the problem by just sitting here any way looks like you have tried quite a few steps
good thing that you posted these otherwise i am quite sure you would have got the same steps here too
not lets see
1) the games might not be the problem as the problem with the mouse continues in the windows as well
2)Clean formatting (are you talking about the formatting of windows ) did not work that means there is no problem with the settings also as formmating solve basically all the software problems
3)You have tried changing the mouse twice so no problems with the mouse too
also old driver do not really create some problem but then again there might be a bug on the motherboard
else what you could try is to see if there is no problem with the USB interface that might be the culprit here
also if you have tried so many thing could you also try and place a mouse in the ps/2 port and see if the same probem continues
and if you have already done that pls post the results here
would to happy to help.

This might seem like trying to swat a fly with a sledgehammer, but hear me out.
It sounds like you got some errant code infecting one of your files that is run at startup. You COULD try to disable each "Non-essential" startup one at a time but that might take a LONG.... time depending on all the startups in the startup folder, and registry, and services etc....
My Proposal is back up all the files you Can't replace. Format the Hard drive and reinstall the Operating System. Then before you put any of your archived files back on the fresh install run an antivirus and malware check on it.
It may be extreme but it WILL clear any "Undesirable" code from the system

Tips for a great answer:

click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X
you will need to update/reinstall drivers
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts
make sure the battery is good (has full charge)also you might test the usb device for the mouse is inserted correctly into the usb port (if applicable)
if you need more help with this post a reply
hope this helps you
