Erratic Mouse Pointer Movements

The mouse pointer moves erratically, opening and closing windows, and just having a mind of its own. This happens especially when I connect to the internet (I use both Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 3.0.1 browsers). I have scanned all files with antivirus programs (mcaffee) but the problem remains. The problem seems to disappear sometimes, but reappears when I start another browsing session. Any suggestions to fix this problem?

Could be radio interference from somewhere. I tracked my similar mouse problem down to emissions from the ethernet adapter that connects over the house mains wiring. Try the using the mouse close to the receiver, if it works ok interference is likely.

SOURCE: Inspiron 1525 Touchpad has a mind of its own

I have had the same problem.  This may sound strange, but try the following:
Switch off the notebook.  
Remove the battery and keep the on off switch pressed for >5 seconds.  
Replace the battery and start the computer again.  

The problem should then be resolved.

SOURCE: Erratic pointing

After experiencing the same issue for a few frustrating hours, I read here the theory about the required distance accuracy between the sensor and the surface.I used to be able to use mice (any brand) on a simple piece of paper or directly on (wooden) surfaces. Not with this "laser mouse..." I was about to try the "tape-with-a-hole" solution, but before trying that I simply threw a heavy, thick magazine with a glossy back-cover on the table and tried again. Worked like a charm. The heaviness of the magazine (I think) lent the "flatness" which I believe is the real required solution. I'm not sure if the glossiness played a role here...

SOURCE: Why does my wireless mouse seem to ake the cursor go crazy?

Several things can cause this. If you're using the mouse on a reflective or glass surface, the laser light underneath will dance all over the place, and it doesn't take much to make the mouse pointer go crazy. Put a standard mouse pad under it. If it's still doing the same thing, then replace the batteries. If both of those don't work, replace the mouse.

Believe it or not, if another mouse does the same thing, you probably have a malware or virus infection. There are some 30 or more common viruses that are really just nuisance type programs that intentionally make your computer (especially the mouse) do some very strange things. I guess that's some geek's idea of humor.

Laptop pointer erratic


There is a setting in your Control Panel/Mouse, which is a check box to enable it to hide the mouse pointer when not in use. Disable that and see if it helps.

Not sure what you mean but a possible problem with erratic mice is the mouse pad. A coloured pad sometimes reflests the light in an erratic fashion that causes the pointer to do unexpected things. Try it without a pad or one with no patterns.

Mouse continually skips around. I changed batteries, reset it and everything. What's wrong?


You have the tracking speed set too high.Go to 'start'-'control panel'-'printers and other hardware'-'mouse'.After opening mouse you'll see "pointer options",click and you'll see "pointer speed".Move the speed down from fast to slow until you can see it easily.The other thing is if you don't have enough RAM memory it won't be able to keep up with simple hand movements.Click "start'-right click"computer"left click"properties"and up will come what you have for a computer will be displayed.Near the bottom of the page will be RAM,to it's left is how much you have.XP you need at least 512MB(1GB is better-up to 3GB best)Vista 1GB minimum,up to 6GB with Vista x64.Adding Ram is the easiest way to speed up a sluggish machine.Please re post if you'd like to get into changing setting for best performance.

When this behavior is observed when using a Logitech product withinWindows® XP, it may be caused by a feature within Windows called"enhanced pointer precision". This feature may conflict with Logitech's software, causing the erratic movement. Enhanced pointerprecision became available in Service Pack 2 and therefore is notapplicable in any version of Windows® XP without Service Pack 2installed. For more information on enhanced pointer precision,please click HERE. If this link does not work, then you should go to Microsoft and search for Knowledge Base article 895550.

Please see these articles from the Logitech database for possible troubleshooting tips as well:

hi dear

What happens if you unplug your microphone?

No, I'm not joking. Several users have found that erratic mouse movements
were caused by their voice-recognition software trying to make sense of
random sounds coming in through the sound card, and feed those signals to
the mouse driver.

If that's not it, then fall back on the old faithful: make sure you have
the latest and best driver for your mouse. If you tell us the make and
model, there's a good chance that someone here will recognize it and know
which driver you should be using. (Of course, it could be a small defect in
the cable, too.)

Erratic behavior


I just sprayed my dad's lens cleaner on one end of a Q-tip to clean the lens of the mouse and dried the excess fluid with the other end of the Q-tip. WORKS GREAT :)
