Question about AMD Multimedia Computer with Athlon64 3000+ (2.0GHz)Processor (AMD64256BMDDR80GBHD) Motherboard
I have another computer where the mouse recently started jumping to the bottom left corner at random times. When it happens it will continue for a few minutes jumping down to the corner every 1-5 seconds. It may happen once a day or 20 times a day. It started recently, soon after I tried to install a driver from Stamps.com for a scale. The scale is Serial port.. old mice are serial... there is sort of a connection there?? BUT I tried several different mice in the PS2 mouse port and a USB mouse. I also uninstalled the scale driver, did a system recovery... installed a new mouse driver from Logitech... nothing helped.
I had a similar problem! Only my computer was having connection
problems with another peripheral device that was plugged in. Every time
the device would reset, the mouse would jump to the corner.
The device in question was a rather old Wacom tablet, but it could be possible that your problem is as overlook-able as that. Do you have a second input device?

What I'd try is go into the BIOS setup, and set your serial port for COM1 IRQ4 (Interupt) and 3F8H (address), if these latter notations are listed. Often, you will see the serial port, parallel port, etc. set to Auto. You may want to see if the PS2 port can be set to a specific Interupt and address also, just as long as the settings are not in use by another device. These kind of problems can be hard to pinpoint, but hopefully the above will solve your issue.
