Windows Mouse Errors?

I am having some serious problems in window98.  I will list the problems and my setup.

AMD k6-2-350
asus p5a MB
128 mb Ram (64 of which was purchased right before problem began)
Creative 6x DVD w/decoder card
HP cd-writer plus 8100
iomega zip-100
ls120 superdisk
western digital 27.3gb HDD
Maxtor? 9.1 gb HDD
Sound Blaster 128
Creative Banshee w/16mb SGRAM
Intel pro 10/100 NIC

Ok now here is my problem.  In windows and in some applications, when I open up menu bars such and the windows start bar, up to a few levels my mouse cursor moves off screen and will not move pass half the computer screen.  The mouse believes as if the computer screen has been shifted down half a screen.  ex- opening START->PROGRAMS->ACCESORIES->COMMUNICATION.  Doing such would result in the mouse moving off screen during folder opening. If I was to close a program after this occured I would have to click in the right center of the screen, not the uppermost right of the screen.  This also happens in graphics programs such as photoshop and paintshoppro.  Automatically happens in photoshop as soon as loads and when you go to file menu in paintshop.  I believe that it may have to do with cheap ram I have bought, though I have tried removing ram with no luck and same error occuring.  I also thought it might be related to an IRQ conflict yet I had tried that also.  I am looking for any suggestions before I try doing everything all over again.  Also recently I get a lock up in internet explorer when I scroll upward.  Not a problem with mouse have tried replacing.  I have been stumped with this problem for a while now.  Hopefully someone can help. And yes I have formatted and reinstalled.  Any Suggestions.

try turning the graphic hardware acceleration down some.
Go into System Properties, then click on the performace tab, then click on the graphics button, now move the slider to the left a couple of notches and try it.

Thanks alot your help with my mouse problem it is fixed, I thought I had tried that before but only moved it down one notch, moving it dow to 2 notches (basic functions) fixed it.  Is there any performance hit I am taking from doing that.

No not really, in some cases you can go slower and be faster overall if you know what I mean.
