Why does my wireless mouse seem to ake the cursor go crazy?

My wireless mouse seems to have the cursor go crazy. It doesnt seem to stay in one spot and i believe that it doesnt respond to my movements when i move the mouse. I have tried to put new batteries in, I have tried to push the reset button on it and everything but yet nothing is working. There is sometimes where if I leave it alone for awhile then try to use it but then like 2 minutes later it starts going haywire. Is there anyone here that could help me with this problem? Thank you for any help that I may recieve.

Several things can cause this. If you're using the mouse on a reflective or glass surface, the laser light underneath will dance all over the place, and it doesn't take much to make the mouse pointer go crazy. Put a standard mouse pad under it. If it's still doing the same thing, then replace the batteries. If both of those don't work, replace the mouse.

Believe it or not, if another mouse does the same thing, you probably have a malware or virus infection. There are some 30 or more common viruses that are really just nuisance type programs that intentionally make your computer (especially the mouse) do some very strange things. I guess that's some geek's idea of humor.

Wireless Optical Mouse Cleaning

Optical Mouse Cleaning is a problem for many. The mouse cursor seems to randomly jumping around and uncontrolable, which is caused by dirt on the optical beam. To prevent this from happening, place a piece of clear scotch tap over the optical lens and it will prevent dirt from getting into the lens. Then you won't have problems caused by dirt.

Yes, this is a result of the wireless mouse. If that mouse moves a hair, it could cause your computer to wake up. I recommend you placing the mouse in a more sturdy location between uses, or simply turn off the transmitter/receiver that controls the wireless keyboard/mouse. Sometimes a better mouse pad is all you need to reduce glare or to provide a surface with more friction to better prevent small bumps from moving the mouse round.

Cursor is a "box that magnifies"

It sounds as though you have turned on the magnifier accidentally. Go to the start button,than all programs,accessories,accessability, then click on magnifier. That should turn it back off.

My mouse doesn't seem to want to connect

I assume you have a cordless mouse?, make sure you have any other mouse like ps2 connected first, uninstall (remove the cordless mouse drivers and software from your system), restart your machine and re install the software and the drivers back.
Also make sure the receiver end coming out of your computer is on a well open space (not too close to the mouse itself)
Also the receiver is farther from other wireless devices.
Hope that helped!
