I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop
then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7
in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar
click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver
click on >> control panel all control panel items mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have the options update driver rollback driver or uninstall in xp
in windows 7 click start control panel hardware and sound mouse you will see the same tabs and options as with xp
Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question mark ? or exclamation mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers
You might need to upgrade your graphics card drivers you might have to remove your graphics card to make sure the socket is clean restart your computer the reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard if your computer came with a mother board disk the drivers could be on it click start control panel display desktop you can select a different desktop from the drop down list or a browse button where you can select different picturesthis may vary depending on your operating system also you can change the settings for more or less pixels or from the drop down list pick the appropriate level of color range or troubleshoot also select advanced then general dpi normal size,larger size or custom settings always click APPLY after making any changes hope this helps
A mouse is a vital component of your computer and allows you to control certain functions on the screen. When the mouse is not functioning correctly, it can be frustrating. There are a few different reasons why your mouse pointer may jump on the screen. You need to work through the possible causes and troubleshoot the problems to fix your mouse and get it working properly again.
1. Examine the batteries if you have a wireless mouse and the cursor begins to jump. A low battery may be the cause. Change the batteries and check the mouse again. If it is still experiencing the same problems, proceed to the next steps to resolve the issue.
2. Switch the wireless transmitter to a different USB port on another computer if possible. There could be problems with the port, causing the cursor to jump. This will resolve the problem if the issue is with the USB port. If the mouse is still jumping, move on to the next steps.
3. Click on the "Start" menu in the bottom left corner of the screen. Right-click on the "My Computer" menu and click on "Properties." Click on the "Hardware" menu and click on "Device Manager." Locate the mouse entry in the list. Right-click on it and select "Update Driver" from the menu. Allow a few moments for the operating system to locate and install an updated driver for your mouse.
4. Remove dust or debris from the mouse pad and mouse with a soft cloth. Dust or debris could prevent the mouse from operating smoothly and cause the cursor to jump. Add a small amount of isopropyl alcohol to the cloth before you begin. Wait for the alcohol to dry on the pad and mouse prior to using. 5. Go to the "Start" menu and click on "Control Panel." Double-click on the "Mouse" icon and click on "Mouse Pointer." Decrease the speed of the mouse pointer. This could be causing the cursor to jump. I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you.
I have the same problem. It worked fine for over 7 years now. Yesterday I put it into the charging device after I switched off the Mouse. Started to charge. In the moring I took it off and slide the Off button to On. The battery indicator shows full. Windows 7 recognize it but no mouse movement. I tryied 2 different computers (both with XP) and the mouse is recognized but not working. I tryied to look into the laser lens but no red light there.... I also tryied to put it into charghing the Red Status Lid for 1 second and after it goes all green.
do you have a wired or wireless mouse? Have you tried attaching a different mouse to your computer? What is the brand name of your mouse?
Try booting your computer in Safe Mode. To do this, after turning on the computer, press F8 button several times. You will see a screen that will ask you to boot normally, boot in Safe Mode or boot in Safe Mode with Network Connections. Select Safe Mode.
See if your mouse works then.
Check back with me for further help, if needed. There are additional things you could try.
If the mouse doesn't have a little door to open on
the bottom, then try this.
Just behind the Left and Right keys where your hand rests,
apply firm pressure down on the cover and slide to the rear.
Some mouse manufactures have used this type of access to replace the
If it’s a wireless GE mouse turn it on by pushing the
button on the bottom and hold till the red light comes on. Assuming the
computer is running, press the Blue light on the Receiver and press the button
on the bottom of the mouse and it should start tracking on the monitor.
Hope this helps. Bud
In windows xp go into start menu, then into control panel then click on appearance and themes, then move your mouse over to mouse pointers click on it , uncheck "enhance pointer precision, and click apply, that will stop the mouse from acting crazy, this will work with dell mouse pointers and most.
