Re: Cursor pauses every second or so

OK, fixed. I knew something was wrong when I booted into Windows and saw the same problems. In the BIOS too. I pulled the battery and the hard drive, put them back in and it wasn't stuttering anymore. I have no idea what was wrong.

Searching got me nowhere and suggesting it is a condescending and unhelpful response. I'm not trying to be rude but "search before you ask" seems to be the default answer any...

Cursor pauses every second or so

I'm having an issue where my mouse cursor pauses for a breif moment every second or so. Both a USB mouse and the trackpad on my Dell Latitude D620 are having the issue.
