Do you have a hand held mouse plugged into your laptop? If you do and your laptop mouse is on as well, it will cause erratic movement because you have two mice going at the same time. You will need to turn off either the hand held mouse or your laptop mouse, you cant use both. Hope this helps you issue.
Why does my mouse scurry away and hide in the upper right or lower left of the screen?
brand new mouse MS 6000 when typing especially the letter "y" my cursor jumps to another line or where ever. always higher than where ever I am typing. It does this in Word, online such as Facebook, Tumblr, etc. Does not matter where I am typing. Have Sony Vaio three years old, running Vista, Google Chrome. This started happening a few months ago drives me nuts!!! Of course I have been looking for an answer everywhere including yours Leo. Please help Thanks so much in advance.
my pointer (w/o) mouse dances like it has a tick everytime I change internet page or click down on a page. why? how to fix please?
i've read many things about this mouse and mouse that but the truth is ALL MICROSOFT MOUSE JUMP AROUND THE MONITOR IN CIRCLES it leaps all around (the pointer or cursor) ... but this is a problem only on i repeat ALL MICROSOFT MOUSE doesnt matter if its wired or wireless
Here's the thing about mine though, it does the exact same thing when i use a mouse, drawing board or the touchpad on my HP laptop. I've also tried deactivating the touchpad and it still happens. Any idea what this might be? Do i need new drivers or something?
My mum's mouse tracks diagonally across the screen all the time, really annoying, and I have tried updating drivers, etc, but all seems updated on that front. Her previous mouse did the same thing, so we think it's something on the laptop? AVG found nothing. The cursor is gone completely now and the touchpad no longer works either. Right clicking either brings up a menu on the top right of the screen, and left clicking makes it disappear, but that's all the functionality she has now.
my mouse cursor keeps jumping into the corner of the screen .this was my mom's use and she never had this problem so what is it
OK I have got a bloody asinine problem with this HP mouse! I am running Windows 7 on an HP Pavilion PC which I only got a few months ago.
I use four different browsers:
Google Chrome 6.0.472.63
My mouse worka OK on the first three but on Chrome it jumps all over the place and it only began doing this about two hours ago! Inside a dialogue box or a message block like this one it turns into a blinking 'I' however anywhere else on the screen it's a blinking white arrow! Someone suggested I use a mousepad only I already do and have never not used one. My mouse is not wireless but it does have a red light on the bottom when you turn it over so I suppose it's an 'optical' mouse? Anyway even when I am not using any browsers at all like when I am installing updates and stuff like that the mouse is perfect. Go over to Chrome and all pandemonium is set loose! Short of throwing it at the wall I have tried everything I can think of but all has been to no avail whatsoever. Can someone please help me out before I go baka nuts? Thanks as always and have a nice day-
I Agree all Microsoft mouses do that.
i have had 3 and all do exactly the same.
Microsoft mouses leap around the screen.
