My mouse cursor keeps on jumping.i cleaned the mouse thoroughly.but it didn't solve the problem.i have noticed that by keeping the connecting cable in certain positions the mouse starts working just fine.the connection between the mouse and the computer is not loose.i have the following doubts:
-could the connecting cable be the reason for the jumping?
-or is the drive to be blamed for it?
can anyone suggest any useful measures?
My mouse jumps also when trying to click on just about anything. The cursor I am speaking of.

Re: jumping mouse cursor
I think some where in the cable there is a broken wire, it is inside the cable, cause there is a certain position that it work properly. You can also test it by tyring other mouse if the problem still the same.

With optical mice, you dont clean them like you do an old roller ball style mouse. Take a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and swap the optical sensor on the bottom...where you see a red light. Also make sure you arent using the mouse on a reflective surface like glass. See if using it on a mousepad or something as simple as a piece of paper corrects your problem.
trackballs and other ball mouses have an optical sensor inside the cup that holds the ball. dirt, lint and debris that falls into the optical sensor can make the cursor jump around - the sensor detects the debris as if it were a ball movement. Clean the inside of the cup and the jumping should stop.
Cleaning the cup -- first clean the three points that hold the ball up. They tend to grap whatever dirt or grease gets onto the ball from the user's hand. Clean the rectangular sensor window with a que-tip or by blowing into it. Get any stuck debris out of the corners. Finally, turn the mouse over, without the bal inside, and tap it on a hard surface. This can knock loose any remaining debris that can fall into the sensor window.
reinstall the driver for the mouse and see if that fixes it.... also you can try going to control panel----mouse and the changing the settings... you may have to experiment abit to get it the way you want it.
Please take a moment to rate this solution... thanks
i think the best solution would be to get a new mouse and see if that has the same issues if it does not, it is your mouse. If it is it could be a number of things... faulty mouse software (easily fixable),driver problems, or it may even require you reformat your entire computer, depending on where the source of the problem is. Try a new mouse first and keep me posted...gl
If you are positive keeping the cable stationary prevents the problem try this:
Try holding the mouse connector stationary and wiggle the cable. If the problem occurs then the connection between the mouse connector/cable is defective, due to the low value of this mouse the fix would typically be replacing rather than repair.
If that doesn?t work try wiggling the mouse connector where it plugs into the PC. If this causes the problem to reappear then either your mouse connector or the PC socket is damaged. Try another mouse and if the problem goes away, again the fix would be to replace the mouse.
If a new mouse doesn?t fix the problem then there is a good chance the PS2 connector is damaged. At this point I would purchase a USB mouse which should solve your problem
