    Hello, I have a Toshiba Tecra 2 and the mouse won't stay on the screen. It wanders and disappears and i am having troublecompleting my work in a timely fashion. I have tried to unplug and plug in. I have changed batteries. I have tried a different mouse. My keypad scroller also gives me difficulty. Could it be related the to power surge on the port hub message that comes up frequently. what do you suggest?

Sound as if you have picked up some malware, carry out in-depth virus checking with up to date anti-virus software, or use an on-line one such as "search and destroy"

3. Set the touchpad for right or left-handed use from this dialog box. You can adjust the double click speed of your computer as well. When you finish making any changes, click "
Apply."
4. Pick the "
Device Settings" tab from the dialog box now. You can see the touchpad for your Vista machine highlighted on this screen. Select "Settings."
5. Read the information provided in the next dialog box. It gives you options for tapping your
touchpad, using the buttons, scrolling, pointer motion and sensitivity.
6. Make any changes you want from the various topics. When you make a change, click "
Apply." Click "OK" when you finish making all your changes.
7. Do some work on your computer for a while, If the touchpad is still too sensitive, return to the "Mouse" menu and continue to adjust the settings until you get them just the way you want them.

control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options and hardware under hardware you can troubleshoot or select properties under driver you can update driver,rollback driver or uninstall and under hardware you can troubleshoot

hope this helps

Pointer on track pad moves on its own. it does not move along with finger and goes in jerky direction elsewhere.


did water get on the track pad? Try connecting an external mouse to get control over your pointer, and navigate to system preferences/track pad. See if you can play around with the settings, but if the external mouse works ok, it sounds like water may have come in contact with your track pad.
