Try cleaning the ball. Try using another pad. If no joy, Try uninstalling the mouse drivers and reinstalling or updating them. (device manager)

My acer aspire has a roaming curser


sounds like you need to go to your control panel and go to mouse and go to pointer options and check pointer precision, uncheck snap to or uncheck display pointer trails. Your problem will be in mouse and what you have checked or not checked.

Wii curser or pointer jumps around


There are a few conditions that you need to check:

  • Batteries fully charged or at full power
  • Wii remote is aligned properly.
If the batteries are dying, that might be a cause of the jumpiness because it'll have trouble maintaining a signal lock with the sensor.

Make sure you have the sensor in the right place (above or below the TV as you specify in the settings).

Make sure you have the Wii remote sensitivity settings correct too. All of these things are in the settings menu.

HP Optical Mouse Curser jumps around


I respectfully disagree with amusedgeek. He is correct aout the textured surface,though.Optical mice will take snapshots many times a second and reposition the cursor according to where the pattern was last. Rather than a single color, a pattern is your best bet for an optical mouse. The only thing I recommend is to make sure the mousepad isn't reflective at all- no glossy or semi-glossy surface. You want it to be non-reflective. Just to be sure there is nothing wrong with the mouse, you can test it simply by putting it on a newspaper and scrolling around.
