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.

The arrow on the mouse kepts junping around ?


You are probably using a laptop with a touchpad. What is happening is that your thumbs are touching the touch-pad as you type and the cursor is jumping around. Solution: disable your touch pad. You can go to Start > Control Panel > Mouse > Touch Pad > Disable

Another solution is to go to the Dell website > Support and Drivers > download and install the Synaptics Pointing Device driver and disable your touch pad using the options in this new driver.

Keyboard problem- cursor keeps jumping around when I'm typing


You may be inadvertently touching the touch pad with the side of your hand or fingers as you type OR the touch pad itself is bad and needs replacement.

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.

Acer 5720 - cursor/keyboard: applying pressure causes jumping


Solution one: Don't apply pressure to left side of laptop :)
Solution two: Bits of hardware (like your touchpad) plug into the mainboard with thin ribbon connectors. Sounds like this has become loose, or something is shorting against something else. Solution is to take it to bits and reseat the connectors on the mainboard. Not easy to do and I really don't recommend you do it unless you know what you are doing; laptops are so fiddly and difficult to get apart.

If it's in warranty then get Acer to sort it. If not you may want to pay to get it fixed (or go with solution one!).

My inspiron 1525 has a keyboard problem everytime i am typing it jumps back do you have any idea what's going on?


I've been struggling with this issue as well. I type really fast so I thought i was inadvertantly hitting the touchpad and moving the cursor. Maybe, maybe not. But today I discovered that changing one of the dafault settings for the touchpad has eliminating the jumping cursor trouble and I can type fast again without constantly checking my screen to see which line I'm actually typing in.

Here's what I did: Go to the control panel and the mouse and click on the icon for the touchpad and uncheck the touchpad setting "tap to click"

I also put my speed and sensitivity about in the mid-range. (Another suggestion that didn't work was to make my touchpad less sensitive).

Happy typing!

The cursor on my mouse is jumping all over the place, and I can't control it. How can I open the back of my mouse, so that I can clean the ball any thing else in the mouse. I have a Logitech M-S69.


there should be a circle ring around with arrows. Twist it so it opens. Then the ball will fall out. There are 3 places grims will build up. Get some tweezers and pull that stuff off.

You should probably get a laser mouse. I am sure amazon has them for a couple bucks.

Jumping mouse cursor


I think some where in the cable there is a broken wire, it is inside the cable, cause there is a certain position that it work properly. You can also test it by tyring other mouse if the problem still the same.

Jumping cursor


sounds like its a optical mouse, and you are probably using it on a reflective surface ie plastic mousemat, glass or along that lines, you will probaby find out it works fine on wood, or a a solid surface that aint reflective or a gel mouse mat.. :-) all the best John
