Mouse pointer all over the place - Laptop

Hi all

I have a laptop and had enough with the trackpad as i just cant get on with them, so i bought a USB optical mouse.

Now here is the problem - the mouse is to slow and randomly just shoots to the side of the screen for no reason. Its a plug and play mouse so no drivers required. Running windows XP home edition.

Help

do you have a patterned mousemat? the patterns can upset the mouse. Optical mice work much better with a clean white underneath them. I have a sheet of white A4 paper which has been laminated.

Control panel>mouse>pointer option

Adjust the pointer speed from there.
