    Hello,
    Can you please tell me why you have assigned an inappropriate rating??? My solution was the only one that offered you direct links to the Logitech website which WILL solve this issue. I was a former Logitech tech support staff and I know what I'm doing. I posted the links because one or all are required to solve the issue, and they are too big to type in here. Just because you did not want to click the links or follow the advice therein does NOT mean that my post was inappropriate.

    "Inappropriate" is only reserved for posts that are totally irrelevant to the issue. I don't think my links were irrelevant at all.

    Therefore, I request you to at least change the rating to a 'thanks for trying' or 'helpful'. I would really appreciate it. A negative rating can impact an expert's standing here on the site. So I request you to kindly reconsider your rating.

    Thank you in advance,
    IrishDruid

When using an optical mouse with an erratic movement, you should use mousepad. but if the erratic movement is still there, you may want to replace your mouse instead.

Try checking the mousepad/or whatever you use your mouse on for any marks/dust etc.
Also check the underside of the mouse for debris!
If all ok try re-installing the drivers.

The cursor does not go where you point it. that makes the page jump around


Hi,
Try another pad. If it's an optical mouse - check there's no dust/dirt covering the lens.Try another pad. If it's an optical mouse - check there's no dust/dirt covering the lens.

Cursor jumps all over with a touch of the mouse why


trackballs and other ball mouses have an optical sensor inside the cup that holds the ball. dirt, lint and debris that falls into the optical sensor can make the cursor jump around - the sensor detects the debris as if it were a ball movement. Clean the inside of the cup and the jumping should stop.

Cleaning the cup -- first clean the three points that hold the ball up. They tend to grap whatever dirt or grease gets onto the ball from the user's hand. Clean the rectangular sensor window with a que-tip or by blowing into it. Get any stuck debris out of the corners. Finally, turn the mouse over, without the bal inside, and tap it on a hard surface. This can knock loose any remaining debris that can fall into the sensor window.

Mouse started a shakey cursor, how to fix?


If it's an optical mouse (without a ball), try using it on a smooth surface, such as a sheet of copier paper. If the cursor is jumping around even when the mouse is sitting still on your desk, junk it and get another. With optical mice sometimes selling for as little at $2, it isn't worth repairing them.

I have had this mouse for a few months and from day one it has acted erratically. Double clicks when I press the buttons once, has the pointer jump around the screen especially while dragging a file or...


Check for radio interference with phones, microwave oven, etc. (unplug them for the test).
Yoour PC may also have malware, causing the cursor to jump (but that does not usually cause the double-click problem)

Mouse Cursor Jumps to the right of the screen


Have you tried going into the control panel - mouse - pointer options - motion speed (slower) and experiment with pointer precision check box? Try it, see what that gets ya.

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.
