Hey Tempers,

I recently upgraded my rig from AMD to Intel. After upgrading, everything worked fine except for the mouse.
The cursor keeps freezing about every ~2-3 seconds, for about ~2-3 seconds. This makes it basically impossible to properly use my computer.
The mouse works just fine on my Intel laptop.

I've already tried a few things, including:

Replugging the mouse
Plugging the mouse into another USB 2.0/3.0 port.
Rebooting
Re-installing drivers
Using Windows generic HID mouse driver thingy

Old specs:

AMD Athlon 860k x4
MSI Gtx 970
MSI Military Class 4 A78M-E45
16 Gigs of Kingston DDR3
Samsung 840 EVO SSD (128 GB)
Some generic 500 GB HDD

New Specs:

Intel i3-6100 (Yep, an i3. It's really good for gaming though)
MSI Gtx 970
MSI B15 Bazooka
8 Gigs of XFury DDR4
Samsung 840 EVO SSD (128 GB)
Some generic 500 GB HDD

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There's hope for a Xenosaga port.

Hiya.
I hadn't done this yet, but unfortunately this didn't fix my issue.
Such a drastic hardware change (controllers for sata, usb, memory, sound, etc.) should be followed by a complete windows reinstall. Otherwise you will have sporadic problems and several headaches.

I've reformatted Windows and it's still happening.

Is it all mice or just that one?

With that said I don't usually advocate reformatting but if you are going to swap motherboard and CPU to an entirely different class of them then it is something worth doing.

It's all mice.

heh, does it happen during windows instalation? i mean unless you are using xp you can use the mouse during the entire process, does it happen in there?
Nope, thats the odd part...

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Is it possible you damaged some USB headers or something?
I'm always extra careful when building that I don't accidentally bump something, so I don't think so.

Then can you try and see if the same problem persists with different OSes like Ubuntu or Puppy Linux? If it does, it's a HW problem for sure, if it doesn't, I guess it's on the software end only.
