Question about AMD Multimedia Computer with Athlon64 3000+ (2.0GHz)Processor (AMD64256BMDDR80GBHD) Motherboard
I have another computer where the mouse recently started jumping to the bottom left corner at random times. When it happens it will continue for a few minutes jumping down to the corner every 1-5 seconds. It may happen once a day or 20 times a day. It started recently, soon after I tried to install a driver from Stamps.com for a scale. The scale is Serial port.. old mice are serial... there is sort of a connection there?? BUT I tried several different mice in the PS2 mouse port and a USB mouse. I also uninstalled the scale driver, did a system recovery... installed a new mouse driver from Logitech... nothing helped.
I had a similar problem! Only my computer was having connection
problems with another peripheral device that was plugged in. Every time
the device would reset, the mouse would jump to the corner.
The device in question was a rather old Wacom tablet, but it could be possible that your problem is as overlook-able as that. Do you have a second input device?

What I'd try is go into the BIOS setup, and set your serial port for COM1 IRQ4 (Interupt) and 3F8H (address), if these latter notations are listed. Often, you will see the serial port, parallel port, etc. set to Auto. You may want to see if the PS2 port can be set to a specific Interupt and address also, just as long as the settings are not in use by another device. These kind of problems can be hard to pinpoint, but hopefully the above will solve your issue.

make sure the batteries are inserted correctly and have charge if applicable
usually located on the underside of the mouse there might be small plastic sticker with a phillips head screw under it rub your fingernail over the top to see if it has a screw
or make sure the usb device is properly inserted for wireless
the usb or Ps2 connection are secure with a dust free connection
or it might be the usb for wireless mouse or lead connecting to the usb port or even a faulty mouse
if this does not fix the problem
restart you computer tap the f8 key repeatedly to enter safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you an attempt to repair your computer
If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.
Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only
Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Start Windows Normally
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
select safe mode
click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x
right click you will need to update the driver
click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver rollback driver or uninstall also
I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop
then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 arrows >> then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7
in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar
Click start control panel keyboard hardware make sure you have the right keyboard selected
or you might have uninstall the keyboard then restart your computer then reinstall it and its drivers
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to keyboard you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click update driver
hope this helps
complete range of drivers
