To find out whether it is the mouse or the laptop do a system roll back to a time when the mouse was working well
Say a week ago.
If it does not work after wards and is still faulty you will need a new mouse.
To overcome the issue in the short term, try pluggingit in with an USBcable if it has such a port
you probably haven't installed the touch-pad driver yet. go to the computer manufacturers website and look for the touch-pad driver that is specific to your laptop
Also I would say that it is a setting in your control panel if you have used any other mice or install another mouse drivers it may have affected you touch pad. I would suggest looking at the synaptic setting and see if there is an option to set the touch pad to default settings. If all else fails you can try to reinstall the synaptic drivers from the laptop support site. I hope this helps.
Your mouse could be defective, but let's try a few things first.
Try to remove any wireless devices close to it (i.e. wireless router)or try to plug it in a new USB port.
Last thing try to use a very dark mousepad. The laser respond to reflection so any white on a mousepad combined with some sun light could result in a free for all mouse pointer.
do you have Word with that weird little paperclip helper? some computers have presets that make it (or your cursor) move out of the way so you can see what you're typing as that many people (not including me!) touch type while looking at the screen and the cursor being in the way is VERY distracting to them.
