Re: Jumpy mouse pointer, imprecise. How do I clean it?

Laser mice don't need cleaning.
Try un-installing the driver.
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Human Interface devices" (If you have one). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'mouse' icon there is your problem!
If NOT go ahead and Uninstall the drivers anyhow, It CAN"T hurt!
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only.
Click on the faulty device and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Do the same with the "Mice and other pointing devices"
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.

It is jumpy! It's very hard to point it to anything with any accuracy, as it jumps about, and isn't smooth.

All you need to do to fix this problem is get a mouse mat, or short term just a bit of paper. If the desk or table that you are using the mouse on is in any way shiny then the laser will reflect and will be jumpy

After synchronizing connecting buttons, take off battery, look for a tiny thin button that protrudes in one of the sides where the receiver is placed in mouse, hold it depressed and then install a new and fresh battery releasing simultaneously said button. Hope you solve your problem. Good luck!!!Chawah.
