you can get an ide-to-usb box, open it and mount the disk directly on 
the laptop... this little things are really useful in this bad times..

mmh.. the freeze-on-mouse-move issue is strange, maybe it could be the 
mobo chipset??

memtest86 is THE tool for checking the ram, for hardware side the only 
thing i can think is to toggle all hardware components and adding them 
one-by-one till you experience the problem again... or by installing the 
hardware on an another machine
