I experienced the same issue but luckily enough one of my close friends is a Sony tech and helped me with this (and saved me much money too!)
You need to remove the back panel and soak the unit in lukewarm water. Be sure that the water temp. does NOT exceed 75 degrees or you will damage the battery. Soak for not more than 10 minutes. If no results, then remove the back panel again and soak it for 15 minutes. Again, DO NOT immerse the unit in water that is warmer than 75 degrees!

How to make a optical mouse work better?


Your mouse is an important part of your computer system, and when that mouse has problems it is important to get them resolved as quickly as possible.


There are a number of things that can cause a mouse pointer to behave erratically, and it is important to work through each of those possible causes one by one.


Change the batteries if you are using a wireless mouse.

The batteries in a wireless mouse will generally last a long time, especially if you use rechargeable batteries.


But once the battery power begins to decline, the batteries will lose power very rapidly.

If you are using a wireless mouse and the cursor begins to stutter and jump, chances are that changing the batteries will resolve the issue.


Move the wireless transmitter to another USB port.

Problems with the wireless transmitter can cause the mouse pointer to stutter and jump. Moving the transmitter to another port will often resolve this issue.


Right-click on the "My Computer" icon on your computer's desktop, and choose "Properties" from the menu.

Click on the "Hardware" tab, and click the "Device Manager" button.


Navigate to the mouse entry in the list of hardware devices, right-click and choose "Update Driver" from the menu.

Allow your operating system to search for and install the most recent driver for your model mouse.


Clean the mouse surface thoroughly if you are not using a mouse pad.

If you are using a mouse pad, shake any dust or dirt off of it to make sure the surface is perfectly smooth.


Any imperfections in the surface could cause the mouse pointer to behave erratically.

To clean the mouse surface, hold a clean cloth over the opening of a bottle of isopropyl alcohol and soak the cloth.


Then, go over the entire surface with the alcohol-soaked cloth and allow the surface to dry before attempting to use the mouse again.


Click on the "Start" button, and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.

Double-click the "Mouse" icon, and click the "Mouse Pointer" tab.


Adjust the speed of the mouse.

If the mouse speed is set too fast, it can cause the mouse pointer to stutter or hiccup.


It may take a few tries to get the speed just right, so just move the slider and test each new setting


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 >>arrow heads 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


Hope this helps

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.

Cursor jumps around


If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:
  1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.
  2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.
    1. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.
    2. Click Printers and Other Hardware.
    3. Click Mouse.
    4. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab. (Figure 1)

      Figure 1: Pointer Speed
    5. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.
    6. Click OK.
    7. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.
  3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.

Run awat cursor


When that problem happens to me I turn off my pointer pad. I have a Compaq Presario and it has a button to shut off the mouse pad. When I simply shut it off it does not jump when I am typing. I don't know the originating cause but at least I can make the annoyance go away when it would bother me the most. Hope this helps.

Jumping mouse


I would take canned air and blow out the optical sensor on the bottom of the mouse. You could also try changing out the mouse pad. Most times when this happens something is causing the optical sensor to sense the wrong movement...i.e. dust, dirt, crumbs. Make sure to give it a thorough cleaning. Maybe use a little Isopropyl Alcohol on the sensor with a foam swab.

Acer Vista Laptop and cursor nightmare!!


Hi -
I've been having the same problem and it is MAJORLY annoying to be typing along, and have the cursor reappear on another line!

I had a heck of a time finding the place to disable the touchpad, since we use a USB mouse with the laptop. Turns out, someone else helped me find a simple way - hold down the Fn key (next to the left side CNTRL key), and hit F7. That toggles the touchpad off/on easily!

Also suggested by someone else, some mice can cause erratice behavior with Acer laptops, so perhaps try another mouse?

So far, I've been typing this response AFTER disabling the touchpad, and the cursor has not jumped around at all.

Good luck! : )
