Mouse and keyboard gets about 15 secs of delay in certain opengl games


When I try to run games like Enemy-Territory or Quake 3 Arena they run just fine, until they suddenly stops working (might be soud-related). The game seems to run fine, but I can't move. If I press a button, it's effect comes over 10 seconds after the actual pressing of the key.

I have a SoundBlaster Live! 5.1 soundcard, GeForce 2 MX 400 graphicscard and a ABIT KT7E motherboard. I'm running Slackware 10.1, kernel 2.4.29.

/sbin/lsmod:

00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8363/8365 [KT133/KM133] (rev 03)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8363/8365 [KT133/KM133 AGP]
00:07.0 ISA bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 [Apollo Super South] (rev 40)
00:07.1 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C586A/B/VT82C686/A/B/VT823x/A/C/VT8235PIPC Bus Master IDE (rev 06)
00:07.2 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6202 [USB 2.0 controller] (rev 16)
00:07.3 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6202 [USB 2.0 controller] (rev 16)
00:07.4 Bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 [Apollo Super ACPI] (rev 40)
00:09.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 07)
00:09.1 Input device controller: Creative Labs SB Live! MIDI/Game Port (rev 07)
00:0b.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
00:0f.0 Network controller: Texas Instruments ACX 100 22Mbps Wireless Interface
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400] (rev b2)

I have had this problem on different distros too, so it might be a BIOS-related problem or so. I've complied the acx100-opensource driver myself, and I'm using own firmware. Don't think this have anything to do with my problem, but everything else is direcly from the slackware isntall (except NVIDIA-driver)

What is wrong?

If it happens only whe playing online, it can be your connection (tto slow).
Check your ping and compare to other players.

I haven't added anything there, and I dubt that slackware does that itself.
