Hp Wireless mouse erratic, checked batteries which are down to 1.2v, would this be the problem or how low a voltage will affect the mouse?

When they drop below the 1.5 v you could probably expect some problems. Only one way to find out put some new ones in.

I had a Logitech mouse and keyboard and used to get the same sort of problems. new batteries sorted it out. Not saying that is your problem maybe check for driver updates or firmware updates to see if there is any

Hello Govan1x,

Thanks for your reply, I have changed the batteries and that seems to have sorted it, I'll just bin the old ones.

You would think at 1.2v left it would be enough to power a mouse. Like you say best binning them.

I use rechargables in my Logitech wireless keyboard and they are only 1.2v to start with.
