    so the system is basically crashing.. the mouse wiggle just causes a complete reset..

    i think the mouse wiggle is just red herring.. when your system really crashes nothing get written anywhere.. u should just view it as simple crash/lock-up or reset i think

    basic system instability.. do the normal kinda checking things.. slow stuff down.. check tempts.. reseat your memory.. just try and make some alteration to the system that stops the crash happening..

    sounds like something isnt sitting tite enough. I had a problem like that were a stick drive was sitting really loosly in the usb port every time I just brushed up against it I got a BSOD..
    what was the last thing you installed? see if your mouse is connected really good or buy another one

    Could be a cheap or failing power supply too. Check into that while you have everything apart.
