USB mouse freezes Vista Beta2 system

Guest

I have a USB optical mouse. It runs a while and then if I move the mouse the
system freezes. I can only turn off the computer.
I tried that with a Microsoft optical mouse (which I use on another computer
with Windows Vista Beta2) and a Logitech optical USB mouse - same behaviour.
My old serial mouse runs ok.

Is there a problem with the USB drivers?

Strange as it may seem, this may be a video driver issue and not related to
the mouse. Since you don't list anything about your system, other than the
fact that you have two computers with Vista (no build number) and USB mice,
it will be hard to tell. That one computer works and the other doesn't is
what leads me to believe the video driver issue.

I use a USB optical mouse from Microsoft just fine on my computer
running Vista Beta 2.

Here's the information about the system's:

Windows Vista Beta2 Build 5384
Microsoft Optical Mouse 2.0

failed on:
Celeron 2GHz
1,256 MByte RAM
GeForce Ti 4200 64MB
Sound on AC97 (creative card not installed)

succeeded on:
P4 3,0 GHz
2 GByte RAM
GeForce 6600GT 128 MB
Creative Audigy ZS2

I hope this helps without to give the motherboard types.

Thanks and regards,

I'll say video drivers as well because the only change I made to my system
was replace a MX 440 8X agp card with 6200 8X card and I began getting
lockups. Even though I new the mouse was good I still got the sense that it
was the mouse and not the video card because it seems like the lockup would
always occur while moving it, so I rebooted without the mouse connected and
used only the keyboard and it would still lockup, The final test was to
boot into safe mode with the mouse and the system will run all day. I did
find out that with Areo not selected the system will lockup less frequent,
the longest run with Areo was about 7 minutes but with Windows classic I
have run between 15 minutes to several hours, but lockups still occur. Just
to add, there was no difference between the Nvida Vista beta drivers or the
MS default drivers as far as lockups are concerned.

Pretty sure it's the GeForce. Get it here sometimes. Unplugging the mouse
and waiting a bit then plugging it back in gets it working again on this
machine.
