Jumping Mouse Cursor

  babybell 22:50 11 Nov 2004

I have today bought a new pc (Dell Dimension 2400) but one thing i have noticed is when moving the mouse cursor sometimes it will jump iratically around the screen for a second, im using an optical mouse, is there any cure?

I had the same problem, it stopped when I tried a different mouse mat, dunno why it stopped but it did.

If the surface you are running your optical mouse over is very shiny like glass, or even wood-laminate which looks grainy but with a very smooth surface, the optical sensors will not work well. Try using another surface or reusing a mouse mat, A3 sheet or some other surface.
