Mouse jumping around!

Hi. Well, for the last few weeks, I'm having a problem with my mouse which was jittering. My system features: Operating system: winxp version 2002 service pack 2 Processor: Intel pentium 3, 801 mhz Memery: 128mb ram I have FORMATTED my hard disk coz I was unable to get rid of a trojan. But when I reinstall everything, my mouse started to jump around without me doing anything! When I got this problem with WinXP, I have zero my hardrive (using killdisk free version) and reinstall winxp but the problems remains. So, I have zero my hardrive again and install WIN98 SE. But the problem is still there. I have try another mouse, whether ps2 port or USB but the problem remain still! I'm really despair coz have try everything possible by following different advice I found on the net. I hope that you will be able to give me the solution!!!

    Hi lambylamb.

    Thanks for answering.

    There is no electrical equipment placed near the mouse and no driver conflict.

    Moreover, I have zero my harddisk, delete the partition and set it again before formatting.

    Maybe it is a boot sector virus. I have trey almost everything. So, the solution, I think, has to be something really concrete.

Firstly: Is there any other electrical equipment placed near it, like a TV, or radio, or (unshielded) loudspeakers, or the little power supplies from router/speakers/printer etc? If so, move these away from your PC and/or monitor. also if they are optical mice/mouse... then some surfaces "scatter the laser and this causes a jump. secondly: make sure there is no driver conflict, (post another question here too get me to go into details...) and i have heard of this prob happening with some PCI graphics drivers... thirdly: mice viruses are getting very pop, now when you cleaned out your HDD did you actually delete the partition, format and reload xp etc?? cause overwriting will not simple solve the trijan prob! anyhow try: for some cool stuff, to stop your mouse ADD problem. good luck.

    hey... ok been away.. here are just 2 easy(est) solutions:
    Download a dos version of f-prot anti virus program from to an f-prot folder. If you don't have a boot floppy disk create one. Boot to the floppy disk and run f-prot in dos mode from C:\f-prot. This will scan the boot sector and hpefully remove the virus you have.
    2). reformatting does not always work as well depending on the construct (virus) is may be using the dos sector (higher memory) as a secure hiding place.
    so: read really carfully! :
    then: download:
    it is a different program to the win dos version but this is how you basically use it:
    1).Create any bootable floppy disk/diskette A: (even with older Windows systems)

    2).Run MbrFix to see the current list of partitions: mbrfix /drive 0 listpartitions

    3).Run MbrFix in the following way: mbrfix /drive 0 fixmbr

    4).If you have more than 1 physicial hard disk (hard drive), you have to use proper number for your disk. E.g. change 0 to sdifferent number (1, 2 etc.)

    good luck. if you still struggle. write a post back and i will do into super long detail on how to dual format.

I just installed windows xp service pack 3 version 2002 but after installing the operating system it says activate windows.It gave me 30 days.It's more like a trial version.I need help guys.

Windows operating systems require a valid product key in order for them to work. You would have to purchase WinXP in order to get a product key. Unfortunately, WinXP is in its last days of its product lifecycle and will not be supported. You'd be much better off trying to install Win7.

PS/2 compatible mouse error code 10

The generic mouse driver in your operating system should work, unless you want to use extra features specific to your mouse. Without knowing what version your operating system is, or the model of your mouse, the only thing I can tell you is to go the mouse manufacturer's website, look for the support link, then find and download the driver installer for your model of mouse (make sure you select the one for your operating system). Next, check your Add/Remove programs control panel (if you are running Windows) and remove any mouse-specific programs listed (the program publisher should be the company that made the mouse). Run the mouse driver installer and all should work again.

How to clean the virus infecting my system

well that sounds like a tough one.. Have you tried safe mode. Rapidly press F8 after the the bios screen load and before the winxp(assuming your running winxp) screen starts. Safe mode only loads the bare essential process for the operating system. You should be able to run a virus scan from safe mode to at least get rid of the worst of it. IF this doesnt work you might have to either use a bootable virus scan or look at reinstalling the operating system. If the virus has embedded itself far enough into crucial system files then you will for sure need to do this or attempt a repair install of windows. One thing iv learned over the years trying to clean viruses off systems is that you can spend HOURS and hours fighting it where some keep coming back.. or you can invest a couple hours into trying to get rid of it and then call it quits and reformat which is the only sure way of completely getting rid of it. I hope this helps. im a big fan of AVG available at . they even have a free version ( good luck.

Problem in install winxp

Your upgrade options
If you want to upgrade your system to Windows XP, the first thing you need to do is verify that it meets the system requirements for the newer operating system.
You will need:
  • Windows 98 or later version of Microsoft Windows operating system.
  • At least a 233Mhz processor. Any manufacturer (AMD, Intel, IBM, VIA, etc.) will do.
  • At least 128MB of system memory.
  • 1.5 Gigabytes of free hard drive space (note that you should have at least 3 gigabytes if you want to do any meaningful work with your system after the upgrade).
  • A CD-Rom or CD/RW drive.
  • Mouse and keyboard (either USB or PS/2).
  • A video adaptor and monitor capable of displaying 800x600 resolution. If you are not sure about this, change the resolution within Windows 98 by right clicking on an empty area of the desktop and selecting 'properties' then going to the 'settings' tab. The resolution slider is at the bottom left. Set it to '800x600' and click 'apply.' If your screen is still legible, you are fine. If the 800x600 option is unavailable, you may need to upgrade your video adaptor before upgrading Windows.
Note that if the screen becomes scrambled, blank or unreadable, you will probably need a new monitor as your current one cannot handle the required resolution. If your system meets the minimum requirements for Windows XP, it's time to find out which version of the operating system you can upgrade to.
