This might help as I brought a wirless mouse and it was wissing around the screen.
If you go to Start on your computer then
Click on CONTROL PANEL then
click on MOUSE then
click on pointer options and you can adjust the speed of it.

Cursor keeps moving to unexpected locations while typing


My laptop does this and so does my Linux computer.
An optical mouse needs to work on a featureless surface. My oak grain desk is not good.
A mouse pad with a picture is also bad.
Use a clear textured surface - like a one colour mouse pad...
Or
Try a new mouse - a cheap one will do for testing. The tail on your mouse may be breaking. (Yes, they do that...)

It seems to happen with optical mice on random pattern surfaces.

My Gigaware optical mouse's cursor won't move


Sounds like the laser failed. Return it for replacement.

Mouse moves, click and drag by itself


That sounds a lot like someone has remote access to your computer. Try changing your Firewall settings or try to get a different IP address. Careful messing around with the IP though, it's easy to create a problem when doing that.

Cursor runs all over the screen w/o moving hp wireless mouse


Your mouse could be defective, but let's try a few things first. Try to remove any wireless devices close to it (i.e. wireless router)or try to plug it in a new USB port. Last thing try to use a very dark mousepad. The laser respond to reflection so any white on a mousepad combined with some sun light could result in a free for all mouse pointer.

Receiver light is steady green. mouse won't light up. cursor won't move.


Why don't you try at the moment of placing a new battery to see if the small button that protrudes, where the receiver is located at the bottom of the mouse is pressed down. Without the receiver in place that **** on must be out for as long as the receiver is in the USB port.
Good luck!!!

The cursor on my laser wireless mouse won't move


You need to sync the mouse with the USB receiver. They'll be a similar button on the receiver. Push both at the same time.

USB mouse is jittery


Try the mouse on a different surface, also be sure you do not have any light directed at the mouse - this confuses the eye. Although no mouse pad is required for an optical mouse, sometimes it helps

My cursor darts to a corner without moving mouse


do you have Word with that weird little paperclip helper? some computers have presets that make it (or your cursor) move out of the way so you can see what you're typing as that many people (not including me!) touch type while looking at the screen and the cursor being in the way is VERY distracting to them.
