    I am having the same problem and this is an optical mouse on a mouse pad or off the mouse pad. It is some kind of software issue. Tried downloading logitech mouseware soft ware and there is no improvement

    This mouse ruins FPS gaming because it jumps around so much. It does it a lot as well.

After reading this page and attempting driver updates I called the place I ordered it from and they sent me a new one of the same model. It doesn't have the jumping around problem the previous one had. It's a problem with the mouse itself that can't be fixed with software. The mouse is bad.

If you are using the scrolling mouse, u can clean the balls of the mouse and use it.
After that i recomend, use the mouse pad for the smooth working of the mouse.

Looks like your mouse is causing the trouble. Try a different mouse if you have one lying around. Or to check, unplug the mouse when that starts to happen and check if the problem is resolved immediately. If it does, well, time to get a new mouse.

How to stop my G4 Mac desktop screen from jumping around when mousing? My screen moves left and right, or up and down when mousing around.

I think what you have done is accidently magnified your screen slightly. To correct this hold down your ctrl key on your keyboard and move your finger on the mouse scroll button back. Hope this helps.

I believe I can help in what you are experiencing with your jumping cursor concern. you mentioned that you downloaded a driver, try downloading touch freeze, google it it will give you links where to download it and it is free, this should fix your jumping cursor issue

any of the links will lead you to the downloads page for the application.
once downloaded this is what you should see on your task bar, see image below. an icon of a touchpad with a check mark on it.

Hope this helps with your touchpad concern, Have a nice day.

As I type in, the character/cursor jumps around. The problem does not happen if I type slowly. As someone pointed, it could be the user touching the mouse pad. But, that is not the case here.

as long as its not clicking anything, there shouldnt be a problem. if it is theres something wrong with the connection in the computer, im assuming its a laptop

I have been there, I think. The internal mouse in the middle of laptop has a stripe in it along one side. What happens is that your thumb touches it probably, while you are using the keyboard.Look at your hand/thumb the next time this happens.

My touchpad jumps around or the arrow won't move

Keep the palms of your hands away from your touchpad.
Just being "close" to the touchpad is enough to move the mouse-pointer.
