Mouse will not unfreeze after i put router on my computer


Take the router off and see if it unfreezes. I doubt that your router has anything to do with your mouse freezing. I would say you might have a virus or infection so run a scan. Also you mouse might be going bad.

Try booting up in Safe Mode and see if your mouse freezes. If it does not, surely a virus or infection is attaching your mouse.

Make sure you are not pulling the mouse out of the computer if the end that goes into the computer's green port is round. The round mouse (PS2/Serial) cannot be pulled from the computer and expected to work unless you reboot.

The Flat USB mouse (the end that plugs into the computer is flat) is a plug and play mouse and can be pulled and reinserted into the computer without rebooting.

Mouse will freeze using Ubunto linux


Hook the mouse up to another computer. If it works without freezing then you'll need to go into Ubuntu and see what programs start up when you go into Ubuntu and disable some of them so it frees up memory.

If the mouse freezes up on another computer then the batteries are going weak and you'll need to replace them.

My Gigaware ubs mouse keeps looking up, how do I stop this?


You should try replacing the batteries in the unit, if it still freezes after that, try unplugging and replugging the wireless receiver. If it still freezes, try it on a separate PC. If it freezes still yet on a different computer, then you know the mouse has a hardware problem and should be replaced. If it doesn't freeze on the other PC then you will need to reinstall the software for the mouse on your main computer.

The mouse froze up


Hi

First try rebooting your computer and see if it works.

else

Take a look at how many programs you have open when your mouse freezes up. If you are running multiple programs at once and have limited RAM, this can be a major cause of mouse freezing. The solution is either run fewer programs or simply purchase additional RAM.
You also want to make sure your mouse drivers are up to date. In these cases simply go to the manufacturer website and check for any driver updates you may have missed out on.
But the most common cause of mouse freezing is due to errors in the Windows registry. The registry contains settings and commands that are utilized by the mouse to run properly. When there are errors in the registry this can cause a breakdown in the communication between your mouse and system. When your computer cannot communicate properly it will lock up or freeze.
Unfortunately there is no way to manually fix this problem. The registry is an extremely complex directory that is also sensitive to alterations. If you adjust or remove the wrong registry files your entire system can collapse.
This is why I highly recommend scanning your computer with a top flight registry cleaner. Not only can it fix mouse freezing, it will also speed up your computer considerably. So stop asking why is my mouse freezing. Scan your computer for free below and fix the problem today.
Sick of your mouse freezing up? Want to repair computer errors the easy way? Scan your computer for free and fix corrupt registry problems with the #1 registry cleaner on the internet. After scanning your computer, I promise you will be quite surprised by all the errors on your system.

Why does my mouse freeze?


Possibly a bad mouse.  Either try another mouse on that same port or try that mouse on another computer.  If you want to, try that mouse on another USB port on your computer

Mouse stops responding randomly


The issue may not necessarily be with the mouse. Are you able to use the keyboard once the mouse freezes? If you not even able to use the keyboard, there is some application installed on your computer or a virus due to which the mouse freezes. If, in case, the keyboard works even though the mouse is stuck, try changing the USB port or try a different mouse. Please revert back with any other observations. Good Luck
