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.

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.

How to make a optical mouse work better?


Your mouse is an important part of your computer system, and when that mouse has problems it is important to get them resolved as quickly as possible.


There are a number of things that can cause a mouse pointer to behave erratically, and it is important to work through each of those possible causes one by one.


Change the batteries if you are using a wireless mouse.

The batteries in a wireless mouse will generally last a long time, especially if you use rechargeable batteries.


But once the battery power begins to decline, the batteries will lose power very rapidly.

If you are using a wireless mouse and the cursor begins to stutter and jump, chances are that changing the batteries will resolve the issue.


Move the wireless transmitter to another USB port.

Problems with the wireless transmitter can cause the mouse pointer to stutter and jump. Moving the transmitter to another port will often resolve this issue.


Right-click on the "My Computer" icon on your computer's desktop, and choose "Properties" from the menu.

Click on the "Hardware" tab, and click the "Device Manager" button.


Navigate to the mouse entry in the list of hardware devices, right-click and choose "Update Driver" from the menu.

Allow your operating system to search for and install the most recent driver for your model mouse.


Clean the mouse surface thoroughly if you are not using a mouse pad.

If you are using a mouse pad, shake any dust or dirt off of it to make sure the surface is perfectly smooth.


Any imperfections in the surface could cause the mouse pointer to behave erratically.

To clean the mouse surface, hold a clean cloth over the opening of a bottle of isopropyl alcohol and soak the cloth.


Then, go over the entire surface with the alcohol-soaked cloth and allow the surface to dry before attempting to use the mouse again.


Click on the "Start" button, and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.

Double-click the "Mouse" icon, and click the "Mouse Pointer" tab.


Adjust the speed of the mouse.

If the mouse speed is set too fast, it can cause the mouse pointer to stutter or hiccup.


It may take a few tries to get the speed just right, so just move the slider and test each new setting


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


Hope this helps

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.

If it's an older style mouse, it might just need cleaning. If it's optical, sorry, I have no ideas.

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:

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 :)
