What platform? Memory (needed for this sort of task)? WiFi gateway? Model?
Importantly, have you attached any Apple devices to your system recently?
If the connection is Bluetooth (to TV), well, there's not much help for it. You need a lot of CPU and Memory for smooth flow and device functionality.

    No Apple stuff anywhere, Bluetooth capable but not in use. System Built to cope with needs so Massive CPU & Memory. I think its a software issue.

Tip

Erratic Keyboard typing on laptop


If you are getting erratic keyboard typing (unexpected cursor positioning), verify keyboard driver is up to date. If it is current, remove the keyboard from the laptop (see other sites for directions, but should be easy). Once removed, clean the ribbon contacts using q-tip and isopropyl alcohol. Dry with clean q_tip and reinstall. This may solve the problem without having to purchase new keyboard

Cursor on my keypad 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:.

a. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.

b. Click Printers and Other Hardware.

c. Click Mouse.

d. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab.

e. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.

f. Click OK.

g. 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.

4. After connecting an external mouse, uninstall the touchpad driver from the Device manager listed under the "mice and other pointing devices" category and restart the Computer.

5. Download the Touchpad driver compatible to the Operating System installed on the Computer from the manufacturer's site and install it after restarting the Computer.


Good luck!!!!!!!!!!

Cursor freezes or is eratic


I believe this would be caused by a couple of things. The first, and most likely is probobly that it needs a driver update. If this is not the case, go to computer properties(Right click 'My Computer', then hardware (if xp) then device manager. Go to pointing devices and uninstall the mouse driver.

Yes, you will be unable to control ur laptop. Simply turn off and then the computer will recognise the maouse/mousepad and install the driver.

The second problem could be to do with a nasty little bug out there thats causes both your curser and/or keyboard to act erraticly.

When this behavior is observed when using a Logitech product withinWindows® XP, it may be caused by a feature within Windows called"enhanced pointer precision". This feature may conflict with Logitech's software, causing the erratic movement. Enhanced pointerprecision became available in Service Pack 2 and therefore is notapplicable in any version of Windows® XP without Service Pack 2installed. For more information on enhanced pointer precision,please click HERE. If this link does not work, then you should go to Microsoft and search for Knowledge Base article 895550.

Please see these articles from the Logitech database for possible troubleshooting tips as well:

Could be radio interference from somewhere. I tracked my similar mouse problem down to emissions from the ethernet adapter that connects over the house mains wiring. Try the using the mouse close to the receiver, if it works ok interference is likely.
