i doubt it is a hard disk problem, maybe a symptom but unlikely a source.

what happen to the mouse cursor?

make 100% sure u install ALL the right drivers for XP.

check yr device driver manager.

i can imagine yr frustration :( 

sry but i'm not sure how to give u an exact solution.

oh wat mouse r u using?

here's wat i'll do if it's my pc :) 

. if the mouse comes with a driver like Logitech's i'll uninstall that and try.

. see task manager's processes and running apps.

. i'll download Microsoft Sysinternals tools to
.. look at the processes
.. check autoruns

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/default...

. switch to older motherboard drivers to check

. do clean install XP and don't install any drivers and see if that works
.. with no drivers install, mouse works - it's driver. try install 1-by-1 to c which 1 is the culprit.
.. if it doesn't work with clean install, it's native in win XP.

. scream at the sky and the mouse before calmly update my motherboard's BIOS, with a UPS protecting the PC from power failure.

. i would remove power to dvd-rom, unnecessary usb devices, network adapters, non-XP-boot hard disk during testing.

. use built-in INTEL VGA during troubleshooting. remove PCI-Express VGA & other cards.

hope u find the answer sir. :)

That drive uses different sectors then the past, 4Kb instead of 512b. Use the WD alignment tool for XP created partitions. Windows 7 creates 4Kb sectors correctly.
