    Freezing when rolling over the bottom right


    Hi,

    I installed a version of windows 8 on my laptop and had no issues so decided to try it on my desktop.

    Whenever I roll over the bottom right, where normally the bar on the right hand side would pop up with settings etc. my comp freezes for a few minutes. Everything else seems fine. I've installed the official AMD graphics drivers and updated the system but still having problems.

    Could anyone please help?

    Thanks in advance

    Install this: AMD Catalyst 12.4 WHQL 64-bit download from Guru3D.com

    Visit Realtek's site to download/install latest HD Audio Codec driver.

    Install proprietary driver for the USB audio from manufacturer's site.

    Visit Logitech to download/install latest mouse driver.

    Installed all the above, apart from the USB audio as there is no link for this.

    Still having the same problem

    Remove the USB device from the machine while powered off. Boot up and test.

    I'm confused as to what the USB audio is!

    The only things that are plugged in via usb that are related to audio is a microphone and a webcam with a microphone built in.

    Checked device manager and can't see anything that doesn't have drivers.

    Test with both removed after a reboot.

    You're welcome to post a new zip as before.

    You can also test with keyboard removed while powered off, then power on. (Razer device was the culprit in a very similar case, so even though yours is Logitech, could be possible.)
