Hi Ramona.

Try first blowing into the hole at the base of the mouse, that is where the sensor gets light,dirt in there can commonly cause the problem.

If that does not work, try restarting the computer (ensure you tirn it off, standby is not enough).

If still no luck, then there is a good chance that the problem is software related.
Go to control panel>installed application and uninstall the mouse software, then find the software disk that came with the mouse and reinstall software. If you have misplaced the disk, then the software can be downloaded from Logitech: Downloads - Logitech.

Reinstalling software usually solves the problem, if it does not , then the mouse is probably defective. In that case contact Logitech at the number that you find on manual and on Logitech website.

Good luck.

Touchpad doesn't scroll smoothly on presario cq57

buy a usb mouse and forget the touchpad, you can try removing the touchpad then restart the laptop then let it find it again and it will reinstall the device. But the problem will probably return. I had a nightmare with this problem on a compaq, which i gave up fixing as it just kept recurring and i purchased a wireless mouse for it

I think that's the way it's supposed to be. If you want it to move smooth you have to press down the mouse wheel and drag then mouse into thedesired direction.
At least it's like that on Windows 7.

Check that you are not using this on a shiny or smooth surface. i am assuming this is a laser mouse and not a ball type. These types prefer surfaces that are different, like top of a desk where this wood grain. This is how the mouse knows how far it has moved by comparing one part of the surface to another.

Make sure your mouse is on a smooth surface or a mouse pad.

A/T Shifts into Reverse abruptly

Sounds as if you have a pressure fault, dont leave it at this point it could only be a solonoid change or a crack in the rear cover, but if left a complete transmission may be required.

Jerky mouse

Try using a different Mouse Pad or surface. This is a cause of jerky and erratic mouse movement.
Hope this is of some help. Bud
