Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I recently purchased a logitech mx400 laser mouse. The movement of the cursor is mildly erratic. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers and software, changing every setting but I can't seem to find the cause.

    I just tried the mouse on another computer and it works fine. My machine is getting up there in age so maybe it's not quite able to handle the mouse?

How do i reset or fix a stuck cursor a frozen lap top dell inspiron E1505 it booting up and coming on but the cursors not moving, it seems like everthing works except the curser


Try uninstalling the drivers for the mouse first, then reboot to see if that works. Don't worry, the drivers will reinstall automatically upon reboot.

Hope this helps. :)

I would suggest that you borrow a generic mouse from someone and plug it in the vista and then do that. Another option is to boot your computer in safe mode and then uninstall the drivers there as the mouse will work with generic drivers in safe mode.

Has anyone found a fix (short of getting rid of) for Logitech MX 600 Laser Mouse pointer erratic operation?? Seems to work OK on a Flat smooth surface, but jumps all over the place on any mouse pad I have...


  1. Mouse is not clean.
  2. Optical portion of mouse is blocked.
  3. Moisture or other material on finger.
Mouse is not clean Users who have an optical mechanical mouse (most common mouse for desktop computers) are likely experiencing erratic behavior because the mouse is not clean or is dirty. Optical portion of mouse is blocked
Users who have an optical mouse are likely experiencing erratic behavior because a portion of the optical eye is blocked. Most commonly this is caused by a hair.
Moisture or other material on finger Users who are using a touchpad may experience erratic behavior because of moisture or other material on the finger such as lotion.
Mouse has been cleaned and still has problems If you've cleaned the mouse and continue to encounter issues and this mouse has worked in the past fine unfortunately your mouse is likely defective. One additional test that can be done to help determine if this is the case or not is to connect the mouse to another computer. Otherwise we suggest replacing the mouse.

Hi Mary,

Just uninstalling the software won't help. You have to see whether or not your PC detects the mouse on startup. If not, go to the System Properties in the control panel and look for any conflict signs in the Hardware List. If so, you will see a yellow/red triangle with an Exclamation mark in it. This indicates that a hardware peripheral is either conflicting or not installed correctly or drivers missing. Highlight that by a single mouseclick and delete that & close the wondow. Now go to Add New Hardware in the control panel & try autodetecting the mouse. If your OS asks for drivers CD simply insert the Windows CD in your driver & direct its path to autodetect the .inf file and autoinstall the default drivers.

As far as I feel, an opticla mouse such as the one you have mentioned should automatically be installed if you are using Windows XP.

Anyway, try the above and let me know.

I have an aspire 5315 can somebody tell me why the curser keeps sticking or jumping


Hi lesandlen,

Well, there are a lot of factors that could be involved with your cursor acting up. For starters, could you answer if it is a trackball, optical, or laser mouse? What kind of surface are you using it on? And did it come with a driver CD that you have installed?

Generally, your cursor will move erratically when the sensor that detects movement of the mouse is fed mis-information. If it's a trackball, this can happen when foreign material is caught along the inside wheel sensors besides the trackball. On an optical mouse, it can be similar foreign material interfering with the digital camera's ability to take pictures of your mouse surface. Similar for a laser, but they are much more precise.

Could you provide us with more information? Thanks!

My cursor jumps around. I have a Logitech Optical Mouse


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.

Cursor failure


Solution one:

it may be that your mouse is failing and you may need to to buy another, logitech,microsoft etc are very good mouse brands but cost around 30 - 80$. laser and wireless mouses work very well with desktop pc's. but however, if you do buy a new mouse and it does the same thing.


Solution two:

go to you mouse settings and disable "hide cursor while typing" this is a common mistake for mouse settings.

hope this helps you.
