Constantly getting system sound and mouse cursor interrupt in-game, HELP!
Recently (about 2 weeks), everytime while playing QL I would randomly get a system sound (like when you insert a new device) and a mouse cursor would appear at the spot of my crosshair. I have to hit ~ to pull down console for it to disappear. It happens every 5 minutes or so and only when I am playing QL (Steam games are fine).
I am playing on Chrome/Windows 8. I checked in_nograb and it's set to 0.
It's definitely an external process grabbing the window focus while QL is active.
Use the task manager to track down what it is.
just out of curiosity, could you check device manager to see if theres anything new, maybe something with a yellow exclamation mark.
the reason why is that just recently while actualy in a server my net would cut out, well everything showed i was still connected (nic. network connections etc) but i couldnt connect to any site, i'ed have to reboot and sometimes had to reinstall my nic drivers.
turns out there was three instances of "zte configuration" in my device manager that had somehow been downloaded without my knowledge, could've been someone else in my family, or by me unknowingly, i dont know.
so i get rid of all instances of that through regedit etc, thinking i had fixed it, join a server, happens again ffs.
so i uninstalled quakelive and reinstalled and that seems to have fixed it.
im on chrome and xp
would anyone read again?
i'ed probably run a virus scanner as well, malwarebytes etc :P
