  • If you're using a desk top is your tower in a spot where it can receive air? In other words if its in one of those cabinets and the door is shut you are frying it. Towers need air. If it runs hot quickly point a fan on it to cool it down. You can sit the fan near the sides of front and let it blow through it. It normally cools down in 10 minutes. When your tower gets too hot it does tend to make the mouse act crazy and even the keyboard. Its happened ot me. Once the tower cools down, I shut the desk top down and wait about 10 minutes and then start it up again. It could also be other things as well.
