Mouse pointer jumps when moving it on screen.


If you are not using a mouse pad, try that. Using the mouse on reflective or glass surfaces. Try another mouse to see if it has the same issues. Check your mouse settings in control panel to make sure everything seems ok. Update mouse drivers. Finally, you can try to uninstall / reinstall the mouse.

Advent wireless mouse AMWL13 works for 30 seconds then freezes


Sorry to hear you're having that problem, Karen. I was unable to find the model # that you posted, but I DID find something for an M312 wireless mouse made by Advent:

If you look at the response to this issue, it lists everything I would've typed in here to suggest trying. Wireless peripherals are a "strange animal", in that so many different factors can influence their optimal operating condition. Hopefully something in this article can help you, and good luck! :)

Mouse cursor jumping problem, how to fix it?


A mouse is a vital component of your computer and allows you to control certain functions on the screen. When the mouse is not functioning correctly, it can be frustrating. There are a few different reasons why your mouse pointer may jump on the screen. You need to work through the possible causes and troubleshoot the problems to fix your mouse and get it working properly again.

1.
Examine the batteries if you have a wireless mouse and the cursor begins to jump. A low battery may be the cause. Change the batteries and check the mouse again. If it is still experiencing the same problems, proceed to the next steps to resolve the issue.

2.
Switch the wireless transmitter to a different USB port on another computer if possible. There could be problems with the port, causing the cursor to jump. This will resolve the problem if the issue is with the USB port. If the mouse is still jumping, move on to the next steps.

3.
Click on the "Start" menu in the bottom left corner of the screen. Right-click on the "My Computer" menu and click on "Properties." Click on the "Hardware" menu and click on "Device Manager." Locate the mouse entry in the list. Right-click on it and select "Update Driver" from the menu. Allow a few moments for the operating system to locate and install an updated driver for your mouse.

4. Remove dust or debris from the mouse pad and mouse with a soft cloth. Dust or debris could prevent the mouse from operating smoothly and cause the cursor to jump. Add a small amount of isopropyl alcohol to the cloth before you begin. Wait for the alcohol to dry on the pad and mouse prior to using.
5. Go to the "Start" menu and click on "Control Panel." Double-click on the "Mouse" icon and click on "Mouse Pointer." Decrease the speed of the mouse pointer. This could be causing the cursor to jump.
I hope you find it very helpful.
Thank you.

My cursor suddenly starts bouncing around my screen clicking items and opening programs without my prompting. What's wrong?


You're joking right?

If not, someone has hacked into your computer and can see and access everything. They are using a program like PCAnywhere, or similiar to control your computer from an outside location. These programs can be masked and/or hidden from view. You need a computer repair shop to assist in locating and removing this program. Then you will need them or you to SECURE your network, modem, and/or computer. A firewall will help greatly.

HP Optical Mouse Curser jumps around


I respectfully disagree with amusedgeek. He is correct aout the textured surface,though.Optical mice will take snapshots many times a second and reposition the cursor according to where the pattern was last. Rather than a single color, a pattern is your best bet for an optical mouse. The only thing I recommend is to make sure the mousepad isn't reflective at all- no glossy or semi-glossy surface. You want it to be non-reflective. Just to be sure there is nothing wrong with the mouse, you can test it simply by putting it on a newspaper and scrolling around.

I have an Advent cordless mouse ADE-EMB1 which has suddenly stopped working although it is detected by my laptop.


Try putting brand new batteries in it, if this does not work, you should just buy a new one. When the batteries get weak they can make the mouse start acting strange.
