jumpy/erratic mouse

Question: jumpy/erratic mouse

I'm on a laptop running Vista Home Premium, no optical mouse, no external anything, and the mouse is jumping all over the place. I primarily use this system for email and it takes 20 attempts to get through typing an email. because the cursor randomly moves and next thing i know I'm typing in the middleo of a sentence I've already written. I've got McAfee running, so shouldn't be any crud on the system.

What am I missing? Is there a simple fix to this? I've searched forums and not seen a clear, concise answer for this.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: jumpy/erratic mouse

Hi, not sure if this applies to you, but toshiba has a thing out about having the mouse problem. They said it is fixed when you use a 3 prong plug instead of the one they supplied which is a two prong. It still may be something completely different for you though.

Using Windows XP on Dell computer, 512 mb RAM.  With no programs running I can occaisionally hear what I think is the hard drive "bogging down" (clicking noises also).  In Task Manager, there appears a sharp spike in performance, and up to 100% of CPU is used briefly.  The spike is so sharp it's hard to tell what process might be doing this as I can't get the processes tab on the TM open fast enough.  Even if I figured out a likely process, what would the next step be?  When it happens, and sometimes at other times, the cursor jumps to another part of the screen.  It may jump several times in one occurence.  Anyone have an idea what's going on?  This happened with old Intellimouse, andwith new Microsoft optical mouse as well.  Both appeared to be in clean condition.

For some reason my touchpad is very jumpy when I'm moving the cursor then using the "invisible" left click button.  At first i thought I was just fat fingering where I'm clicking but I paused and carefully clicked on the left button and the mouse cursor either jumps a few inches or almost to the bottom of the screen.  I'm using the newest drivers and even tried messing around in the Ultranav settings.  Is there a way to stop the touchpad from picking up movement at the left click/right click areas?

Answer:Twist touchpad jumpy/erratic

You might want to try playing around with Starting Zone in TouchPad Properties. You get there by going to  Mouse Properties and then under the UltraNav tab you'll want to click on the settings button for the TouchPad. "Starting Zone" is nested under "Smart Check Settings". 
 
If that doesn't help, you might also want to try adjusting the PalmCheck settings.

I need to know how to fix the problem. It is not constant, but tonight, horrible.
 
I move the cursor, raise my finger from the keypad and the cursor jumps around.
 
How can I fix this? Do I need to re-boot the computer or is there a control button to press or something to change?
 
I am ready to throw this laptop in the trash!!

I recently purchased an HP envy laptop (model m6 n-012dx) and the cursor on my screen will intermitently become erratic, very jumpy. It will start moving all over the screen, or jitter back and forth, and even minimize pages or open pages and links beyond my control. This happens even with my fingers off of the touchpad, so I know it is not a sensitivity issue. When I do attempt to take control of the crazy cursor it is pretty much inresponsive to my attempts.  Basically the cursor becomes possessed. This happens intermittently though (and when it occurs it lasts at least a couple minutes at a time), so I haven't been able to pin-point what triggers this behavior. My touchpad driver is up to date and all of my other drivers are up to date, so I know it's not an issue there. Oh, and I'm using Windows 8.1. A temporary solution I have noticed is that by doing a hard reset it fixes the problem until the next occurrence. But I don't want to have to keep going to this solution, considering this happens pretty much daily at some point or another. Any ideas/suggestions out there? Am I alone in this issue? It is very annoying. Cursing at the cursor. I would be very appreciative of any advice.  Also, a side note: I am living in Guatemala for most of the rest of this year (this is where I am right now) and so returning the laptop to Bestbuy isn't really an option. That would have been my big solution. Thank you in advance! &nbs... Read more

Troubleshooting a fairly new HP laptop. Had been infected with a virus. Cleaned it all up but was experiencing erratic mouse behavior. The customer claimed the behavior started when he got hit with infection. While the pointer itself moves fine the left and right mouse buttons intermittently act like they are being held down causing the pointer to drag and highlight everything in site. At other times the buttons do nothing at all. At other times the left mouse button triggers a rightclick menu. And at other moments all mouse control is fine. This occurs equally on the touchpad or when using an external USB mouse. I tried disabling the touchpad completely but the problem still occurs when using the external mouse. I tried updating the sypatics touchpad driver but that made no difference either. I finally resorted to wiping and completely reinstalling windows but the problem still persists. For the hell of it I then updated the BIOS firmware but that made no difference either. All keyboard function work fine so I have been having to resort to using the arrow keys and alt tab and such to navigate around. I ran a Passmark Burn in Test and everything passed. 
 
A couple of additional points. I ran the Hirens Boot CD which is similar to the Ultimate Boot CD. I then booted into the Mini Windows XP and the same erratic mouse behavior occured so this is clearly not an operating system issue.

Question: Jumpy Mouse Pad

Have one of those pad mouse right on the notebook. It gets so jumpy -- wants world domination and doesn't give a **bleep** what I think (or feel).  Please help. I can't get any of my work done. And buying a cordless mouse is not an option; those cramp up my hand :/ Cheers!

Answer:Jumpy Mouse Pad

@iheartmotogp Try setting the "delay" after you touch the mousepad: Settings > Devices > Mouse and touchpad > Under "To help prevent the cursor from accidentally moving while you type, turn off the taps or change the delay before taps work" >Set delay (in drop down menu) to Medium (or Long) delay  NextScroll down on the same page (Mouse and touchpad) >Click Additional mouse options If available, find and set Touch Sensitivity closer to "Heavy Touch" Setting the sensitivity to closer to Heavy Touch can help reduce "accidental" input if you brush your hand against the touchpad when you are typing. When you see a Post that helps, inspires, provides fresh insight,or teaches you something new, click the Thumbs Up on that Post.Fixed / Answered?

Question: Jumpy mouse

My mouse pointer jumps all over the screen at random. It will work fine for a few seconds, and then jump, then work again, then jump a bunch, etc.

It is "Optical" Brand, or maybe "3D Optical." It didn't come with any drivers or software, and various Google searches have turned up nothing.

Is this a driver issue, and if so where can I find them for download? Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
Adam

Question: Jumpy mouse?

Hey, I just got finished building my new PC and I am having a issue with the mouse being extremelly jumpy. This happens when downloading files with utorrent or from websites, my old PC never did this and the new one is about 4x faster although the older PC had XP.

Specs:M2N-SLI Deluxe MB, 2gb G.Skill DDR2 RAM, AMD Athlon X2 3.2ghz dual-core, Geforce 8800GT 512mb, 600watt PSU, and a 250gb Seagate HDD.

The mouse just acts like it is lagging really bad, however whats strange is this only happens when browsing around on the desktop, and downloading/transfering files at the same time. In games this never happens the mouse works fine even with the games highest graphics settings(WOW, Company of Heroes, Crysis).

My mouse jumps around on my screen. I've uninstalled and reinstalled SP2 to no avail. I'm running XP Pro with a P4 3GHz and 2GB ram and over 130GB of free space, there are no bangs in device manager and it happens with either a ps2 or optical mouse

Answer:Jumpy Mouse

Obviously you have tried a different mouse (yes)?

So maybe a repair of xp will sort it save you a complete install.

How to go about Repairing Windows XP
1. Put your Windows XP Install CD into your CD-ROM drive.
2. Reboot your computer.
3. Let your system boot off of the CD.
4. Let the Setup go through the first part of the Installation procedure.
5. When you come to the screen in which it says "Welcome to Setup." press Enter to Setup Windows XP.
6. Press F8 to agree to the End User License.
7. Let the Setup search your system for previous versions of Windows.
8. When the Setup is finished searching your system, select your Windows XP Installation and press the R key on your keyboard to start the Repair Procedure.

This is the part that might make you nervous . The Setup will delete all major system files and then replace them with new copies.

You will have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update again because it replaces the files.

Don't worry, your user data is still intact. Nothing has been lost, nothing has been deleted. Your data is safe, just the OS has been repaired, so relax.

There is nothing to worry about as long as you follow the steps to repairing Windows XP.

Hi all, this isn't a question but an answer to an issue* Short Story: My touchpad wouldn't move around the screen smoothly, it was jumpy. Cause was an unofficial charger I bought off Ebay. Official charger worked fine. Long Story: Bought this laptop recently and mousepad seemed to work fine (Apart from clicking (not clicking one of the 2 buttons but tapping anywhere on the mousepad) didn't always work). I began process of uninstalling all the 'crap' that comes preinstalled and also the huge 'Driver' programs that come preinstalled when all you want is the driver. After I'd finished, I noticed that the mouse started to jump around the screen instead of smoothly gliding across it.  This is for my boss and there was no way he (or even I, who has a lot of patience) would put up with it. Found a post actually on this HP site (Same problem but for a different laptop) and the charger was mentioned. I'd been running the whole time with the Ebay charger (bought an extra charger to keep plugged in at the desk and the other one is for travel) and as soon as I unplugged it, the mousepad was perfect. I unboxed the official charger and tried that and mousepad was still perfect. Plugged in the Ebay one and back to jumpy.  Hope that helps someone *As I said, I found the solution on another thread and wanted to simply reply to that one but couldn't see how I could add my own reply, maybe the thread was now locked (or more likely I'm too stupid!).

hello, i recently bought a new keyboard and mouse so i could play my pc games on my big screen from across the living room. i never had any problems with my optical mouse with a cord, however after switching to this wireless laser mouse i noticed that the mouse movement seems "jumpy" compared to my optical with the cord being very smooth mouse movements. ive tried going into mouse pointer options and unchecking the "enhance pointer precision" box and that didnt help, ive tried getting closer to the sensor and that didnt help, tried replacing the batteries and that didnt help, and then i even tried cleaning off the lense and that didnt help either, ive tried using the mouse on multiple surfaces and neither really seem to affect how it moves. if there are any other suggestions i would love to hear them, this is very annoying since i hook my pc up to my tv to get a better experience out of my video games and it sucks because the wireless mouse isnt very smooth and ruins it. help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Hi

This happens on my netbook NOT on my listed computer

Netbook specs:Samsung N145P w/Atom N455 and 1GB RAM & Windows 7 ultimate.

Lately the computer mouse becomes very choppy and laggy (not smooth) when doing tasks like loading pages or anything that uses CPU, this happens on both touchpad & external mouse. Updated drivers without success does anyone know why

Many thanks.

Answer:Mouse is sometimes jumpy when CPU is loaded

Hi Derek10,

The cause of this is most likely because you only have 1GB of RAM installed in your netbook. It's a very common thing with such low RAM.

You can try checking your RAM usage under "Performance" in task manager.

Hello,

I have just recently developed a very jumpy mouse! When I go to drag an email into a folder it takes several attempts to make it work. It keeps getting dropped or ends up on the task bar?

Also when I try to highlight a line of text to delete or make corrections the highlight jumps all over the place or when I let go of the left button the highlight disappears? This happens everywhere.m in the pas
At first I though there might be a bug in the computer but I have tried several scans with "Malware Bytes" an nothing shows up. I use "Avast" for virus protection and the scans are clean. The mouse is a Logitech Wireless and it has never been a problem in the past. I though the problem might be relegated to just my email program "Windows Mail" but it is showing up everywhere?

I am running Vista (32) and Firefox Ver 3.6.2

Has anyone ever experienced this. Would appreciate your help on trying to correct

Thanking you in advance.

As of late, I've been experiencing some very odd slowdowns at completely random times. Normally its a complete system slow down, my mouse only moves in slow, jumpy, delayed movements, animated GIF images (if on screen) will slow down or stop...etc etc.

The other thing, which I feel is connected to this...is if I have music playing via iTunes, through the internet, etc, if I do something like open a program or click a website link (any change in web page, normally only while loading) the song will break up, mouse goes jumpy for a moment...etc, only until it stops loading.

It seems like its some cache thats filling up too fast and just stopping data...but I've had much slower computers not even come close to doing odd things like this...but then again, I've no other computers that run vista. I find it odd to have this occur since it has plenty of memory, plenty of hard drive space, video is integrated, but 256 variable is allowed to share...I frequently defragment (both Diskeeper & Auslogics DD), I run AdAware & SB S&D, and AVG 8 on a daily scan, so I'm almost positive I've no adware, malware, trojans, etc..

Specs I can throw out are..

Toshiba Satellite A135-S4407
Intel Core Duo T2250, 1.73GHz, 2MB L2
2GB DDR2-533 (PC2-4200)

It sounds like you are checking properly, but those conditions happen when something extra is touching the screen (like the edge of a cable or any odd thing).  It could also happen if you have a sticky key on your keyboard. I offer these with the hope that a simple solution is always best, when possible. Good luck.

Just bought this computer from craigslist and installed a fresh copy of xp home and I installed all the correct drivers AFAIK but it's going way slower then it should be.

So the computer is just really sluggish, if i start doing anything the mouse will be get jumpy.

If theres a program i need to download to tell you my system specs let me know.

The computer is a dell optiplex 320 dual core 3.0GHz per core with 1g of ram and integrated ati xpress 200 graphics.

Even with the bad graphics display there is no way it should run this bad

Answer:Jumpy mouse and overall slow system with fresh xp install.

Dell computers must only have drivers installed which have been obtained from or supplied by Dell (ie from their website). The drivers which Dell computers need are custom-made for the company so they aren't available from anywhere else.

Did you get all the drivers from Dell's website (or from a Dell driver CD supplied with the computer)?

Hi

everytime I sleep my PC then wake it the mouse is jumpy all over the place and can not be used, I have to shutdown & restart the machine?? - its only started since the Fall Creators Update was forcibly installed by Windows 2 days ago, I did install this update a month back but had problems with it so reversed it with my backup images... now 2 days ago windows installed the update without my consent as they are rolling it out now, ever since when I sleep the PC it does this, I need to use sleep too as I use a RAM drive and dont want it writing to my drive every time i shutdown, faster startup too...

Ive done some research and this seems to be very common and other people are reporting that its the sound driver... but thats not the case here as ive uninstalled it (used windows driver) and installed the VIA Audio Driver and still the same...

Can anyone help?

thanks

Answer:Mouse jumpy on PC after forced Fall Creators Update

Hi snadge.

I think I would be checking mouse, keyboard and any other pointing devices you might have attached. Your spec says Q-Connect. Do they have drivers for your devices and are they installed rather than a generic MS drivers? If they are installed roll back the mouse driver or force install an older version and test.

If you roll back the update and then set your connection to metered it will not re-install. While this is not a solution for the mouse in 1709 it will resolve your immediate issue.

I've been struggling with this issue from the begining. Basicaly the mouse pointer is jump when I try to make small movements and the problem ocurs both with the touchpad as well as a G602 external mouse. What could be causing this and how can I fix this? I've tried just about every setting available under the Windows Mouse, Touchpad settings and nothing is working. I did find the following post that seems to suggest a Realtek driver might be intefering with mouse movements. Has anyone else noticed this?

I have a T410S with a docking station, outputting to a new Dell 30" monitor via display port. We've noticed that the mouse randomly jumps and clicks elsewhere on the screen when typing or just doing normal web surfing. Please be aware, that the computer is docked, and the lid is closed & a keyboard and mouse are attached (so we're not using the touchpad, DuoSense or laptop keyboard). Is this an issue with the Ntrigue DuoSense? the touchpad? It's putting a slight hamper when working, especially when typing emails, the cursor will randomly jump and click elsewhere on the screen. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks! /Mark

Invisible pointer moves left to right as mouse is moved opening all programs it passes over. Programs are opened more than once. Alt/ctrl/del to open task manager stops error most times. Rundll32.exe has been running on the times it didn't stop. Rundll32.exe checked ok for errors & viruses etc.
No viruses. Registry checked ok. Can anyone help please. This is most frustrating and can last 2 - 3 minutes.

Question: Erratic Mouse Pad?

Every now and then my mouse pad begins clicking erratically when just trying to move the mouse elsewhere on the screen.Perhaps it's due to sweaty fingers or what not, but I've tried changing the mouse's pressure sensitivity and found it to not really solve the problem. To diagnose the problem, I've simply just shut down the laptop and turned it back on and wiped off my fingers.However, why is this a problem to begin with? Is it because oils from the skin are left on the pad and causing deviations in pressure when I have my finger on it?Thanks

Question: erratic mouse

actually a trackball, Microsoft Explorer 1.0 that is. Running on Win2k, SP4, Dell Precision 360 PC, usb converted to PS2 connection.

I have gone thru the Spyware Trojan Removal process at http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35407 thru step 4. HAve not completed Step 5, did run Hijack This and saw nothing out of the ordinary. Ran Bitdefender, ADS Spy, adn maybe another from the list after Step 6. No issues. Windows Update has been run, but am wary of removing MS Java since a work product definitely uses JAVA and I don't want to break it.

Problem is: the mouse (trackball), at times, jerks around, even gets stuck in a spot, but then eventually recovers. Acts as if something is so taking up the CPU time that there's no extra for the mouse to use/move.

I had this problem a few months ago and was sure I had some nasty infection, so I used it as a motivator to rebuild the system from scratch (SW). Even wiped the boot sector (cause a rebuild w/out that step had the same problem show up). WOrked for a while, and now, it's baa-ack.

Question: Erratic Mouse

I'm not sure what kind of issue this may be. I have tried replacing my mouse Marble Logitech with a new wireless Logitech one but the issue is still there.
While playing games on facebook the mouse pointer has shifted(you have to move the pointer around to slightly below or slightly to the side to click what you want-Some games I cannot even open because of this -Its also hard to close game windows since the "X" doesn't work where it should you have to move the mouse around and find the area that works to close it.I am using windowx XP and google Chrome as my browser.
Yesterday I posted on Major Geeks Facebook page and they told me this "Get SlimDrivers from our driver section and update your drivers. Odds are the USB drivers are out of date compared to the mice you are using." I did download it and it said the drivers was out of date I fixed it and rebooted and the issue remains .I posted on the wall 2x's but noone seems to be answering so I came here.
Hope you can guide me in the right direction
 

Answer:Erratic Mouse

HI

What Windows Service Pack is your XP at?
What is the exact model of your Logitech mouse? (generally the wireless mice form Logitech are called Wireless Mouse Mxxx where xxx is the model number)
Are you using a Desktop, Laptop, Netbook?

Have you uninstalled any software or driver that was installed for your old mouse? what I would do is uninstall all software and drivers linked to the mice and then reboot and install the latest mouse's drivers.

Reason I ask about laptop/netbook is maybe disable the touchpad.

What surface are you using the mouse on, try a different surface to what you are using now, different mouse mat, or a dull none shiny surface.

Everything was fine until this morning. When I fired up my laptop running XP, my mouse was behaving badly. It now double clicks on its own, refuses to move windows, and fails to drag anything including text and files. I am a massive halo fanatic and my itch to play will soon turn into a full blown psychotic episode if I can't fix it soon!! So for my comps sake (not to mention the unfortunate people around me) please help!

So far I have ran every antivirus and spyware check possible. I have even uninstalled the mouse driver to no avail. Im running XP Pro so it automatically reinstalled it for me on reboot. I have also tried scolding my naughty little mouse. I even raised my hand in an attempt to horrify it but it merely sat there unflinching! Well anyways I tried the mouse on my sisters comp and it works fine. The only thing that I did out of the ordinary last night was defrag my system before I went to bed! I cant think of any other solutions so anything anyone might suggest could help! Thank you!

Mouse movement is erratic and jumpy, often times skipping to the sides of the screen in arbitrary directions. When not jumping around, the mouse moves normally and controllably.

Am using the first version of Vista.
Currently using a Logitech optical mouse.
Tested with a Dell optical mouse and a Vaio ball mouse. Both also have erratic movement.
Tried with and without a mouse pad. It made no difference.

Hello FoSho,

This is my first post to a reply on a forum so take it easy on me :)

From what I have researched from Microsoft Support and Help site that there have been issues with optical mouses not functioning properly in Windows Vista. You can refer to the Microsoft support article at this url:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932653/en-us

They do have a hotfix for it, but you have to submit a request to Microsoft Online Customer Services to obtain the hotfix at:

Question: erratic mouse

Just after start up my mouse becomes erratic with a mind of its own. It clicks on things opening and highlighting everything it touches. It becomes totally unworkable and I have to close down and reboot. Often it is still the same when I start up again. I have been told by one department at microsoft that it is a microsoft problem but they want me to pay to sort it. Is there anything I can do myself. Would appreciate some help with this annoying problem. Thankyou

Answer:erratic mouse

I would only guess one of a few things could cause that. Try a restore point to a time when it worked maybe for the first try. See help and support for restore point. It should allow you to go back in time when the mouse did work. I guess you could get a new mouse too and try it.1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks.

Question: Erratic mouse

I installed Windows 10 on day one or two of the upgrade and have been using it since on my Toshiba 64 bit laptop. It was an upgrade from 8.1. A note that this laptop is a touch screen that I cracked, disabling the touch function a year or so ago. No problems on Windows 8.

I use Chrome as my browser and initially could not open any tabs on Chrome. That quickly resolved with some uninstalls and reinstalls I think, but no longer an issue.

From the beginning however I've had problems with what I call "erratic mouse". I've been looking but have not seen others id this as a problem. It was a frequent problem in the beginning but seems to be resolving, maybe?

It is an all of a sudden problem. The mouse will not stay where it is. It jumps to the top of the screen and starts clicking on other tabs or, seems to right click on the url setting up boundaries with big tear drops then bringing up cut and paste windows. Difficult to explain what is going on. This has happened on many occasions. The mouse continues these activities (on it's own). The more I try to interfere, the worse it gets. If I walk away and leave it for a while, it might slow down enough so I can direct the PC, via the mouse to a restart. Usually I just unplug to restart. Seems to be running a day or two now before this problem starts.

Answer:Erratic mouse

I'm replying to my own post to update it and to document for later reference what is going on. Since I've had no replies on my original post, I assume this is an original problem.

On 8/18, the "erratic mouse" happened again on a couple of occasions. I can confirm that the "Windows Button" does NOT resolve the problems as I originally thought, I needed to unplug the laptop to reboot it a couple of times. I also think I can cause the problem to repeat. When I shut the lid to put the laptop to sleep, the failure occurs within a couple of minutes of bringing awake. I was able to repeat it 3X already.

Trying to explain the erratic mouse a little better .... as I said earlier, the mouse starts doing it's own thing. Many time it "brackets" a section of text in the URL on a web page with what I will call "bubble sliders". They look like bubble type markers with points on the top that delineate a section of text to copy or cut. After the delineation occurs, a small rectangular box appears with grids containing copy, cut and paste sections to click. I have never seen anything like it in any application or app. Other things and clicks occur also, just cannot get control of the machine back needing to power down.

I also looked in the event log log for items around the time of failure and am seeing nothing giving me any clues.

Question: Erratic mouse

Hi.

I've got a mouse problem that has developed independently on two different computers, one Win98, the other Win ME.

The mouse works OK when it is moved slowly, but behaves erratically when moved quickly. For example, if the pointer is in the middle of the screen and the mouse is moved quickly to the left, then the pointer will typically move crazily about in the middle third of the screen and usually end up on the right.

Drivers and mice have both been changed to no effect. The ME computer now has an optical mouse, so it can't be a mechanical problem.

The Win98 mouse is on COM1, the ME mouse is a PS/2.

I've fiddled about endlessly with the port settings on the Win98, changed ports etc. No effect whatsoever.

Any ideas?

Regards,
psmyth
 

Answer:Erratic mouse

I am not sure this will help, but it is something to look at.

You didn't specify the mouse brand, but usually most come with software to adjust the mouse.

What you want to do is look for the mouse speed and acceleration. Be sure the speed is set to medium...and that acceleration is set to low. It sounds like the acceleration may be set too fast, causing the mouse to act erratically

Hope that is helpful

Question: Erratic mouse

Hi
Ive just joined this forum and would welcome some help please.
My mouse jumps all over the screen, opens up programmes and drop down boxes on the desktop without me even touchin it, sometimes the pointer disappears totally. I can sometimes cure this by ctrl/alt/del and then just close the task mgr box, other times I have to reboot. I'm positive this is not a hardware problem, but a virus type thing. I've actually changed the mouse and no difference. I did have the same problem some time ago, got help from another forum, had to run various programmes, including Hijack, posted logs etc and after deleting files as advised, the problem was solved. Unfortunately the person who helped is no longer on that forum, and nobody else seems able to help. I run XP, semperon 3000, 1 gig ram.

Question: Erratic Mouse!!!

For two days now, the Trust Optical Wireless Mouse that I use has been playing up (I have an Acer Aspire 5105 laptop, and generally use this mouse rather than the built-in touchpad). This 'misbehaviour' seems to be limited to those occasions when I'm using Windows components, such as regedit, msconfig etc, and have to choose options from drop-down menus; I scroll down, release the mouse and the menu returns to the beginning, as if there were a spring there. Same thing when I use the bottom scroll bar; if I drag the bar towards the right with the mouse, when I let go of the mouse, the scroll bar returns to the left. I end up having to use the keyboard arrows or the touchpad to choose menu options.The only real change to my pc, apart from the usual Microsoft updates, has been the removal of Comodo Firewall and AVG antispy ware.Florio

erratic mouse I have an H-P desktop running W 7 (64) which is a little over a year old. As of today my Microsoft optical mouse has gone all flaky on me. It moves jerkily and if I happen to get it to a place I want it and click, nothing happens. I can't get the Start menu to open. I have

2. changed the USB port
3. unplugged it and installed a wired mouse
4. rebooted
5. hit the reset button on the optical receiver

and nothing has changed. I have read all the previous questions and answers on this topic and I don't know where to go from here. It doesn't seem to me that a new mouse is the answer or the wired mouse should have worked. If it is a software problem, I don't know how to get to anything.

Question: USB mouse erratic

Hello forum, it's my first post. First of all, I've tried multiple mice, this one is a brand new Logitech, works fine on the other computer. Sometimes it works fine, but other times it is very erratic. I've turned off some of the default touchpad drivers and it helped a little, and I've gone into add/remove programs and msconfig to delete or turn off possibly conflicting processes. Is there any way I can prioritize my mouse above other processes? It almost makes me want to get a different computer, which is a Dell Inspiron. The Intel Core i5 processor was a huge let down; I thought it would be much better, and this mouse issue makes me want to throw the computer in the trash.

Answer:USB mouse erratic

There are a variety of possible solutions for this issue.1. Have you tried another usb port?2.Do you have the latest mouse driver?3.Is there a battery in your mouse if so is it in good condition?4. Have you gone to the system tray on your Inspiron and disabled the touch-pad  function?truenorth

Some weeks ago I asked for help on an erratic MicroSoft mouse and received helpful replies. After working for a short time after my last report the mouse became unusable. Since I had some work that had to be done, I went back to a wired mouse and keyboard. After catching up, I held my breath and tried the optical again. I have been using it for about a week and so far so good. Well, almost so good. Occasionally it will not obey me all that well - much like my children - but when I lift the mouse up into the air and then set it back down, it behaves. This makes no sense to me and may not work if things are really bad but I have my fingers crossed.
 

Answer:Report on an erratic mouse

Lifting the mouse up shouldn't make any difference...

I suggest cleaning it (make sure there isn't any hair or lint inside the mouse). Take the mouse apart and use a can of compressed air to remove any debris.

Also try using it on a difference surface, even just putting a sheet of non-glossy paper down.

I went back to a wired mouse and keyboard.Click to expand...

From this I take it the erratic mouse is wireless, yes?

If so it will have a battery, I suggest replacing the battery with a new one and cleaning the contacts with an alcohol based (fragrance free) cleaning fluid.

Hi.

My mouse seems out of control and keeps clicking on web pages so I have no control. It goes to the bottom of the page. I have replaced the mouse.

After logging in, as soon the desktop and my mouse appears, the mouse movement starts to be very slow. It respond a bit late and I get only 2-3 new mouse image (the position where the mouse is) per second. After some time everything goes back to normal. WHen at the logging screen, it goes well too. I don't think I changed something before it started to happen, but I could be wrong. It does it with both my wireless mouse the the synaptics touchpad one. I have a laptop. Finnaly I think it started to happen when I beginned to use it without the battery in when on AC. But I'm pretty sure I tried to boot it with the battery back in and it did't solve the problem. Any help would be appreciated since the only time I goes back on vista (from linux) is to play games and I don't want to wait for the mouse to be back to normal to play.

Answer:Erratic mouse at startup

I changed the video driver for another reason and it got rid of the roblem by the way. Stupid vista

Hi Guys

I recently bought a Logitech wireless mouse. It worked fine at first - but lately it seems to stall when I try to move the pointer. I replaced the AA battery with a new one - but it still has the same malady. Sometimes it works fine - for a few minutes - (ten?) then the pointer stalls on the screen no matter how I move the mouse. At this moment it works fine.
Any thoughts

I am having the same problem on 2 hp dv7 laptops. One is dv7-4269wm the other isdv7-4272us. If a window has a scroll bar it automatically scrolls to the top or tab around the window. I've read other people having similar issues however there is no solution. Also it seems the mouse will freeze in spot and I have to hit the tab button to get it to move again. All drivers and all programs, including the Windows 7 OS (32-bit) are up to date on both machines.
Can somebody please help. This has basically left the machines unusable because regardless of what you want to do the machines do their own thing.
Also the system says the touchpad mouse, which is what I'm using and the keyboard drivers are working properly. I have uninstalled and reinstalled both drivers. When a wireless mouse is used the same things happen, and I was using just the wireless mouse while there was no touchpad driver installed.
Is it a keyboard problem? Are there alternative drivers to synaptics? I've ran troubleshooting tools within Windows and everything reports okay.

Hello all,I have an odd problem in that if I leave my P.C. on for some time, the mouse pointer is very erratic and difficult to control. It jumps about as I try and control it. Nothing happens initially when I move the ball then the pointer jumps way past where I intended. The other thing that happens is that the clock loses a lot of time. I'm guessing that there is something running that is disrupting the general visible operations that I am trying to run.Alec

Answer:erratic mouse pointer.

If you haven't already Tip the ball out and remove the fluff thats probably causing it.Dont know about the clock there is an internal battery for that I think

After I have used the computer for a while, my mouse changes behaviour. It requires that I do another click to deactivate whatever action it was doing.

For instance, when scrolling down a directory of photos, if I don't click before moving the cursor from the scroll bar to the photo icons, it will highlight all the photos it passes over...

Same kind of behaviour when I clone part of a photo in Photoscape. If I don't click after finishing the cloning, the cursor will hang on to the cloning brush and drag the cloning over everything it goes over, even the function buttons (undo, redo..) at the bottom of the screen.

Is there a way to avoid this?

My computer is a Lenovo ThinkPad T520 with Windows7. Thank for for any input regarding this issue.

My Razer mouse has started acting up on me and I cannot figure out what is causing it. Two previous mice have fallen into the same trap. It is a mystery. Cursor movement is jittery in spots, slightly difficult to follow in a straight line, and has a tendency to lean in a rightward direction.

The methods I've tried to resolve this issue:
1) thinking it was dust related, I've gently got after the lens with a can of compressed air
2) swapped USB ports
3) moved mouse to a laser mousepad
4) (Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Mouse>Pointer Options) changed Motion & enhanced pointer precision settings
5) reinstall system to factory condition

None of the above changed anything. Windows Update is fully updated and I do wonder if the problem is related, or if there is a conflict between drivers. When I enter safemode, the mouse movement is buttery smooth!

I am going to post some screenshots related to my mouse to see if anyone can detect anything ususual. Will post more screens if needed.

1) Troubleshooting hardware


2) HID mouse?


3) Razer mouse


4) Razer Synapse (additional mouse settings)

Answer:Help w/erratic mouse movement??

There is a possibility that the mouse is defective. To test this you try the mouse on another system at another location (different tabletop/mousepad).

There is a possibility that the Razor driver or your installation is bad. To test this completely uninstall the mouse, download a new driver file (check version info carefully), and then do a 2 part installation:
Plug the mouse in an let Windows install it's generic mouse driver. Use it like that for a while - do the problems persist? (If Windows automatically installs the old Razor driver then you did not "completely" uninstall it)
Then install the Razor driver. If the problems persist then try a different, older driver for that mouse.
Also: clean the mouse laser lens with a Q-tip dipped in warm water. Do not use detergent, window cleaners using ammonia, solvents like alcohol. Just warm, clean water. All of the above can leave a thin film or distort the lens.

Hello!

Ok....Windows 7 Ultimate....mouse cursor goes where it wants to when started normally.

I have tried everything from several different mice (meeces!) including one with an old trackball and ones that are either wired or wireless.

Sometimes if I just leave it alone for a bit it will come back to normal for a brief period of time but then will start malfunctioning again.

It almost seems like it is actually a physical problem as sometimes I can tip my old d620 and the cursor will slide back down into the screen. Also, SOMETIMES when I touch the bottom right of the screen the cursor works properly for a few seconds....same with the area directly under where your left hand would rest.....but these are VERY temporary fixes to what is a long term and frustrating issue.

No virus comes up during a check so................please help

Answer:Erratic Mouse Cursor

Are you in the habit of using the computer with music in the background?

Logitech "Marble" Ball works perfectly on both my computer and my wife's. Both using same mouse and Windows XP. We play many PC Games and have not had a mouse problem. Recently downloaded 3 games. No problem with first one but very erratic and jerky mouse on next 2. Happened on both computers. I have most recent drivers for NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT and using current Logitech drivers. In last instance, mouse seemed to be working ok and then progressively but rapidly got to the point where it was impossable to use. If I go to Windows with game running, mouse is erratic. Shut game down and all is well again.

Any help appreciated. We like the download site and hope we can make them work.

I have a 9 month old HP dm1, (Win7 / 3GB / AMD Fusion Processor), that is driving me crazy with it's erratic mouse behavior that I hope someone can help me with.

I have tried many different makes of wireless and even 2 different makes of BlueTooth mouses, I have tried it with the computer's touch pad turned off, as well as turned on. I have checked and installed all known updates to the system and the drivers. Scanned for apparent IQ conflicts and even signal interference. Yet, it continues to exhibit a "mind of it's own" regardless of which program is running. And yes, it does the same thing if no mouse is attached and I'm just trying to use the built in touchpad all by itself.

What happens is that the mouse pointer just randomly jumps to some totally random part of the screen, and begins entering my typing there. Or, it will randomly highlight a block of text, and as I continue to type, it erases what I had previously entered and over writes it with what I was in the process of adding. Or it opens up some menu, or even "click on" a link ! IT IS SO ANNOYING !

Any ideas what to do to stop this erratic behaviour ?

Thanks

A few days ago, I dropped my Microsoft wireless notebook mouse, and when I plugged it back into my laptop, I got a message saying " USB Device not recognized". I'm pretty sure the mouse is broken, so I tried a different wireless mouse. This one is a Logitec. It worked fine at first, but then it started acting erratically, to the point where it was unusable. I unplugged it and tried a standard wired mouse. It works fine at times, but sometimes, out of the blue, it just stops responding. If I'm on the internet at the time, I can't even close the window to exit. I actually have to use "ctrl-alt-delete" to end the task, and unlock things. What's strange is that sometimes, everything works perfectly, then all of a sudden it all goes bad.I'm sending you a "highjack this" log.

I strongly suspect malware since mouse problems began about same time pc was infected with malware and FakeHDD virus. Avira, Ad-aware, and Malwarebytes all report clean system now, however mouse still acts erratically (a simple click will often act as double-click opening multiple windows wherever the pointer was resting, drag and drop almost impossible to accomplish, etc).

I booted to safe mode, uninstalled mouse drivers, then using keyboard deleted mouclass.sys and mouhid.sys. I then scanned for hardware changes and allowed drivers to be reinstalled. Is this the correct way to reinstall the mouse drivers? Where is the system reinstalling the drivers from? The mouse behavior is still present, so, assuming malware is the culprit, I am not confident that I am performing the reinstall correctly.

I've had a wired Dell mouse that has worked fine for years. I decided I wanted to use a wireless mouse.

When I put the wireless receiver on my desktop and use the mouse on the desktop it works fine (with the wired mouse still plugged in).

When I put the wireless mouse on the mouse tray next to my keyboard and slighly below my desk, it work erracticly UNLESS I keep my wired mouse next to it (and plugged in)

If I remove the wired mouse, the wireless mouse will not work when the receiveer is on top of my computer, which is underneath my desk, and my mouse is on the mouse tray (also under the desktop), which is my preferred position for the mouse. I don't want to use it on my desktop as it's uncomfoprtable there.

I have a wireless mouse that has a mind of its own. It is a Logitech Performance MX mouse. The mouse acts normally for a few minutes and then jumps all over the place, and it is frustrating and hard to control. Sometimes it even gets temporarily stuck in position. Then it seems to "snap to" and act normally. I replaced the mouse with a wireless Microsoft mouse, and exactly the same symptoms prevailed. I changed ports for the antenna. I reinstalled the Logitech mouse software and I brainstormed the issue via Google.

But the problem persists. It definitely appears to be an "internal" problem. Is there a system setting that could be affecting it, some interfering software, what? I had a similar problem a few years ago and it seemed to correct itself by itself and I never discovered what was causing the jumping and lagging.

Has anyone else experienced this mysterious erratic behavior? I would appreciate any suggestions to fix the issue.

About a month ago my Microsoft wireless optical mouse 2000 started behaving erratically. When I would first turn on the computer, it would work fine for awhile and then start its tricks. I read solutions and first changed the batteries. Whoopee. problem solved - for perhaps a day - and then it was back. I then changed the USB port and same story. It worked fine for a day or so and then the same problem was back. I did not try it in another computer as I didn't have the time to wait to see if the fix was only temporary. I also cleaned the darn thing and got a different mouse pad. I ran internal problem solving and got a good report. I concluded that the mouse was just worn out so I bought a new mouse MS 5000 which again seemed to have solved the problem. Yes, you guessed it. This one is behaving erratically, too, but its behavior is somewhat different. This one is jumpy. I am presuming it is a software problem but I don't know where to turn. I have downloaded the TSG SysInfo but don't know how to add it to this post unless it is done automatically. In case, I am using an H-P desktop running W-7.

I have a Thinkpad Yoga 14 (bought from BestBuy) which I understand is identical to Thinkpad Yoga 460.  I have been using it for the last few weeks and everything was fine. In the past few days, the mouse has started behaving erratically.  Specifically: When I drag a window to move it, the mouse loses its grip half way through the motion, and then re-activates itself.  When it does that, the window I was moving stops, and the mouse clicks on (or selects) whatever happens to be below where the mouse cursor is at that moment. When I try to select some words or a paragraph in an editor, the mouse will reset itself and my selection gets reset.  I have try over and over again just to select some text (so I can do copy/paste, etc.).  Again, sometimes it will reactivate itself halpfway and select (or auto click on) random and unrelated stuff. Now, normally I am not moving the mouse very fast, or very slow.  I have varied the speed and movement but to no avail. I see this behavior with an external USB mouse (on different surrfaces), with the trackpad and trackpoint, as well as the touchscreen. It started recently and it is infuriating to say the least.  Lenovo Companion says everything is up to date and I haven't updated anything in the last couple of weeks. Has anyone seen this behavior?  I would be grateful for any recommendation to solve this issue. Thanks!

My mouse began moving very erratically recently. When the problem began, I supposed that it may have been a driver problem because I had just upgraded to WIN7 64-bit. However, the problem cropped up after about a week of flawless operation. I ran a thorough scan using Avast, but that didn't solve the issue, so I re-installed WIN7 from scratch. The mouse still moves erratically, but less so than before. Prior to the re-install, the mouse pointer moved very quickly, so quickly that I had a lot of difficulty even clicking on anything, but now it seems more docile, jumping only a few inches at a time every few seconds.

I appreciate whatever help you can provide.

P.S. I'm using a 64-bit OS (which I have the disc media for), so I didn't run GMER, only DDS.
