My mouse hangs after 2 , 3 hours of work. I checked also with other mouses, I have to reattach it then it works properly.

My system is running slower than before as it has 2 GB RAM and core 2 DUO Processor
I have updated Antivirus like windows security essential and Avg
so no virus possibility

Tell me if its mother Board problem and I need to change this one?

Check your power settings.

Something related to USB may go to sleep mode after the 2-3hrs ...

Hi Nikorr
thanks for your reply, actually its not a usb mouse
and I have ordered for a new chassis as its front panel is broken, then I'll reassemble it (May be it gets disturb easily , my CPU power button showed problem in past too)

last year due to sparking in wire I lost my graphic card's one display slot,now using other one
so I thought may be slots who were in use that time got problem.and my problem began from that time as well

Recently I was looking for my CPU compatible mother board then I found, ! sign on Intel website what says that compatible but need information

what's that? should I have a fully compatible motherboard instead of that?

For slow PC is responsible clutter and viruses.

And slow CPU and not enough of the RAM.

2GB of the RAM is not enough, get more - 4GB is minimum.

Disable start up items.

Uninstall programs that u don't need.

Do not use or install any toolbars. Use Firefox or Chrome, not the IE.

Your help is really great, thanks a ton
Just last thing more I want to know that, As I was looking to purchase more RAM so some researched on net disturbed me and I am confuse to get right RAM for me

first in Intel website it shows "!" for my mother board compatibility with my processor

and other thing is this table which belongs to my motherboard

DIMM Type Processor system bus frequency Resulting memory frequency
DDR2 533 533 MHz 533 MHz
DDR2 533 800 MHz 533 MHz
DDR2 533 1066 MHz 533 MHz
DDR2 667 533 MHz 533 MHz
DDR2 667 800 MHz 667 MHz
DDR2 667 1066 MHz 667 MHz

As far as I know
My Motherboard is 'Intel D946GZIS original)" and processor is intel core 2 duo 6300 @1.86 1.86 GHz
and RAM is DDR II 533 MHz from trancend
and this motherboard only supports upto 4 GB DDR 2 RAM

So I am confuse that if I can purchase 667 MHz RAM OR not
Or even if I purchase it then will it only limit itself to 533 MHZ?

Hope you won't mind as you already took your too much precious time
But it will surely help me

thanks a ton again

Is this the one?

OK, I am going to sleep now, but u can get any of these.

The best for u is DDR2 667 . I think u have 2 RAM sticks in the mobo, right?

The best is to match the RAM (if u can), and if not,

get a new one so in this case u need 2 x 2GB RAM DDR2 667 sticks.

currently on safe mode with networking and scanning is going on
so sorry for late reply.

I am from India and here we use to buy directly from shops
and these days a website is very famous so first time purchasing my chassis from here to try

there price is good and they are reliable

yes that is my motherboard
and thanks to tell me about RAM as I was thinking to purchase single 4GB stick
on my current ram 4-4-4 is written and I was looking this site there is 5-5-5

well this is the website this time they only have 2 GB RAM sticks

thanks for your time taken
Have a good night and sweet dreams

U have 2 slots, so u can use only 2x2GB RAM sticks. Not the 1x4GB RAM stick.

Well, my mouse just did it again and I am in safe mode hope it won't do again.

I like your guess, this was exact timing when my mouse use to stop working

When a motherboard starts to do problem, PC stops working ? or first it gives some indications? as I am thinking it as indications.
for two days I couldn't do my work as it was showing I/O error and restart option on black screen (alt+ctrl+del)
then asked to system repair(win7) when I started normally it started checking disk for error itself
before that twice while surfing my PC hanged and when I restarted it
it did same as I wrote above
Hufff I am fedup
Now working fine from yesterday like there were no problem at all

here is a little question

its on my current RAM 4-4-4
and here is on suggested by you..
3-3-3 CAS Latency

so does it matter? or it must be same?

Well, It was very nice to talk with u, and at that crunch time when nobody was to help here

April 14, 2012 7:25:24 AM

I tried logitech (another) as you said before about power tool management there are also advance option in win7, there was also graphic card power saving option turned on I made it off now

Thanks Nikorr you are very helpful man

I have purchased smps so question closed !

Can u tell me how to identify if motherboard going to stop working? it shows these symptoms like we discuss? or any beep kind thing will happen
and is it possible to change its damaged ports?
April 16, 2012 8:20:06 AM

Still I need to press my wire connection of HDD with motherboard as sometimes it shows ,, boot image error, system repair option
My system hangs and even in system repair continues and never ends so I use to restart than
and try to run it normally

Or It hangs when window use to boot and user login window won't come

Or sometimes it hangs while working and after that when I restarts my system it shows boot error or system repair options

so how I can know if its motherboard doing problem or just power supply unit not working fine?
