I am using Windows XP Home. The cursor on my mouse keeps freezing up on me. I also have a problem with the time and date on my computer. Every time I turn on my computer the date is usually set to July and the time is never right. Any help would be appreciated.

For the problem with your mouse, have you tried another one, to eliminate a hardware problem? What type of mouse is it Wireless, USB or PS/2.

For the Time problem, that suggests a failing BIOS battery. This is a coin cell on the motherboard type CR2032. The quick and simple fix is to change it.

Thanks for taking the time to help me out. Where can I get a battery and is it easy to replace?

A new Battery can be found almost anywhere. I usually gat them from Walmart/ Asda in the UK. Anywhere that sells batteries should have them. Iit is easy to replace. Just remove the side cover and look for the old battery somewhere in the motherboard. To remove it, there is a clip over the edge which, if released allow the cell to come out.

Thanks for the help. I will get a battery at Walmart sometimes this weekend.
