    Occasionally i get a clicking noise from the back of my pc, like that of
    a frog croaking!, i have checked & there aren't any frogs so i assume it's
    the pc.
    Along with this, the arrow that the mouse directs, goes mad & all the
    toolbar options pop up & i have to re-boot. I can't control the mouse at
    all. The keyboard & mouse are all clean!
    Any help would be grateful

    The "croaking frog" could be a switching relay. Perhaps that's caused by a
    virus. Run a virusscan!

    A short, maybe, at the mouse port? Just guessing, here. Try blowing it
    out with a can of compressed air and reconnect it. Also, make sure
    there are no bent pins or foreign matter in the mouse jack.

    Borrow another keyboard to try. You can also try turning yours upside down and
    bashing it. Have a dog handy to clean up the crumbs.
