Thumbs down Re: Geforce 9600GT XOrg lockup keyboard & mouse lockup

You aren't alone. I have a GTX470 with a Logitech keyboard (and trackball) and the same thing happens. Two possible fixes exist: downgrade your kernel to 2.6.36 (or up to 2.6.39-r3, because of USB/udev madness IIRC) or manually increase the event queue in Xorg (you will find the how-to on these forums but the link escapes me at the moment.) On those rare occasions where my mouse pointer stops moving but my keyboard still works, moving to an edit field via cursors results in that field being filled up with an infinite count of a random letter. (It reminds me of how the old PC joysticks used to be able to flood the machine with input or a UART without a buffer. )
