If you have a wireless mouse, you may need to replace the batteries inside the mouse. If it is a usb or ps2 mouse (wired), you can first try removing the ball from the bottom of the mouse and making sure you clean the rollers that are inside the mouse. Using a Q-tip works pretty good to remove all the dust buildup.
Second, you can go to the control panel, under printers and other hardware, click on Mouse, and make sure the slider isn't set on 'Fast'. Set it about half way between fast and slow for better control.

Jumping Cursor


Your thumbs may be getting too close to the the mousepad
while you're typing. Try holding them further away. Worst case,
you may have a dirty or defective keyboard. Try cleaning under
the keys.

My desktop pc window is jumping up and down. cannot control curser or jumping. intermittent problem.


What do you mean you can't control the cursor? Sounds like two different problems to me. The jumping is more than likely your monitor taking a ****. Check the monitor plug to be sure it is tight. Explain the cursor problem more is it the mouse cursor that won't move?

Hi! I think youre probably having a jumping cursor where the cursor jumps from one place to another while typing an email or something. You may got to control panel - hardware - mouse then look for the check box that you can tick on that says "Tap off while typing" and this should fix the problem. Thanks for visiting FixYa.com!

Cursor jumps to the buttom right corner of the screen


I've got the same problem. I've personally identified it as the digitizer being triggered by the fan. You'll notice that if you rotate the screen away from the fan area, the jumping will stop. Also, if you don't run the computer too hot, the jumping won't happen. I told HP about the problem a while ago but they ignored me. I've been using my laptop for the past year with the digitizer disabled in the device manager.

Jumping cursor when typing


Since you have a logitech mouse, lets just disable the touchpad. You should be able to disable the touchpad via one of these methods:
  1. Look on the top row of keys. You should have one that looks like a little mouse. If you do, hold down the "fn" key in the bottom, and press the key with the mouse on it. That *should* disable the touchpad.
  2. Go to the control panel, and find the keyboard and mouse settings. Digging through the menus, you should find a touchpad. You can disable it through there.
