Hi My friend has a problem with his computer

Win98SE

dynalink conexant modem

when the phone rings the buttons on his mouse stop working and the mouse pointer starts shaking


He had a serial mouse

I have tried a ps2 mouse

deleting the serial mouse

still the same problem

If i ctrl alt del

I get the message msqsrv32 is not responding

If i end task then the problem go's away and dose not come back during further phone rings during the current windows session

Have done a full virus scan and nortons system doctoor check

Any help appreciated

The modem and the mouse are probably sharing an IRQ.
Change one or the other to another IRQ

Obviously the mouse is crapping himself that his wife is ringing because she has found out about ........

Once again I think you are right on the button.

Was that a PUN? :-)

My diagnosis as well.

"If I should be pun-i-shed
for every little pun I shed
I would need a puny shed
In which to hide my Punished Head."

I just HAD to say that.

Ummmm... Do you mean an IRP instead of an IRQ?

What's an IRP?
