The noise? A windows sound? Open Control Panel - Sounds and audio
devices - Sounds, and play each sound until you find one associated to
your problem and work from there.
You can download and run Process Explorer when your mouse freezes.
Find the offending program, read it's image and see what's causing
You can set up a keyboard shortcut to launch PE, then use the Tab,
Arrow, and enter key(s) to get around, Practice this so when you loose
your mouse you can navigate.
If it is a CPU usage problem (system freezes) - just leave PE running,
click on CPU to get the high usage programs on top of the list and
when it happens read what program is involved.
