Mouse keeps droping items

When i pick up things with the mouse cursor and move them somewhere else eg; puting pictures into a new folder or when playing cards on the computer, the mouse drops the item that im moving and picks up what ever it is over at that time and moves that instead. some times this can happen a couple of times from one location to another. i also have problems when i use excel, if i drag over a few boxes, say to merge cells the mouse keeps letting go of the first box and grabbing the second or third box instead, or dragging something i didnt want moved somewhere else then i have to back up and start again. this makes a couple of minutes paperwork take ages.

    I have a wired (with tail) Logitech scroll trackball and it has started to become erratic. if I try to highlight and drag it may stop the process right in the middle, not start at all, or drops stuff somewherre in the "drag" path.



    Any suggestions?

Sound like the left mouse button is just worn out so the connection of the switch inside is not solid.

If it is a wireless mouse, you may be losing connection due to interference

Try a different mouse

Wandering cursor


Are you using a laptop? if you are using a laptop you may be touching the touchpad, I woulld recommend either use a external keyboard or then you need to press the button FN and one of the f1-f12 keys debending on your laptop to turn off the touchpad.

Logitech wireless optical mouse won't move computer cursor


Sometimes on wireless mice the contacts get warped or bent, so when you move it or set it down the batteries are not making full contact on both ends and the mouse loses power.

You can try adjusting the contacts or using a conductive material to make the contact (like a staple or paperclip), but you're probably better off spending the $10 or $20 to get a new mouse.

Cursor keeps moving to unexpected locations while typing


My laptop does this and so does my Linux computer.
An optical mouse needs to work on a featureless surface. My oak grain desk is not good.
A mouse pad with a picture is also bad.
Use a clear textured surface - like a one colour mouse pad...
Or
Try a new mouse - a cheap one will do for testing. The tail on your mouse may be breaking. (Yes, they do that...)

It seems to happen with optical mice on random pattern surfaces.

Cursor runs all over the screen w/o moving hp wireless mouse


Your mouse could be defective, but let's try a few things first. Try to remove any wireless devices close to it (i.e. wireless router)or try to plug it in a new USB port. Last thing try to use a very dark mousepad. The laser respond to reflection so any white on a mousepad combined with some sun light could result in a free for all mouse pointer.

NexxTech mouse... cursor wanders by itself


Make sure that you do not have any items that have a blue tooth option around the mouse. It causes interference which the mouse receiver has to pick up causing it to wander to the top of the screen.
