    Mouse movement freezes the system

    Hi

    I have solved the problem by obtaining another second hand PC with a Nvidia Geforce Fx 5700 AGP DVI and VGA ported card. i also get a PC that can handle 3GB rather than 2GB of ram.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I WOULD HAVE LIKE TO BEEN ABLE TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM WITH THE S3 CARD but it seems no-one knows how...

    ================================================== ==================================

    I am having to construct an xorg.conf file because my hardware is really old.

    I am using 10.04.3 LTS because this give one the option to run X in low resolution mode.

    this was an earlier thread

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1881197

    I have uploaded the xorg.conf and a screen shot showing that the two screen are not at same resolution.
    1024 x 768.

    if i move the mouse, it will move, but then freezes. Is the different screen resolutions any thing to do with this?
    I have to <alt>+<SysRq>+"R" "E" "I" "S" "U" "B" in order to reboot the PC.

    Hardware PACKARD BELL IMEDIA 1328/1 2GB RAM 500GB HD Motherboard VGA (SIS) graphics.

    + old s3 Diamond Stealth 64 PCI VGA card.

    If the Diamond stealth card is inset it become the BIOS Boot device. However if I do not swap the use of the cards around the display is totally distorted.

    I am googling all the time to find a solution but as regards to X I am a complete novice

    Need some kind person to help please

    From my system running in low resolution mode (recovery console boot option)
    just moving the mouse without clicking ant button and the system freezes.

    ~$ xinput list
    ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)]
    ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎜ ↳ ImExPS/2 Generic Explorer Mouse id=9 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎜ ↳ Macintosh mouse button emulation id=10 [slave pointer (2)]
    ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button id=7 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=8 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ~$

    from my xorg.conf file


    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Keyboard0"
    Driver "kbd"
    EndSection

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse0"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "auto"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
    EndSection

    The mouse is working in low resolution mode. How do I ensure that it is the same set-up as above?
