Strange win98 problem

I've recently put togethter an AMD1.33 based system and been doing fine with exception of a bizzare problem that causes me to lose control of the keyboard and mouse for a few seconds. It wouldn't be a problem in normal use but games it is. Games don't always recover from this and sometimes I don't get control back or system simply hangs after a while. It is a win98 system, latest patches, DX8, either Asus GeForce3/64 or MSI GeForce2MX/32(I tried asus and Detonator 2.90 drivers), MSI K7-266Pr, 3com net card and SB-Live/Value, USB Logitech mouse and USB MS keyboard, 512RAM, no overclocking . I think I've disabled just about feature I can think of that may cause this (no power management, no S.M.A.R.T for hdd, no monitoring of any kind) but this keeps happening. I am out of ideas to what may cause it at this point. Has anyone seen something similar?

Are you sure it isn't the keyboard and mouse that is the problem??
Maybe its actually the USB ports. Try using PS2 mouse and keyboard.
