Mouse pointer jumping all over place

  User-312386 21:50 17 Jul 2007

Hi all

I have just switched on the computer and my mouse pointer is jumping all over the place.

It is jumping to the top of the screen, also sometimes something pops up and says "flip document" and it list all my open pages in mozilla and ie.

Never seen this before


Windows XP pro

Check your mouse settings in control panel.

My cordless mouse acts strange when - The batteries are low or when the docking/recieving cradle has been moved out of range/line of sight (falls off the desk in other words).

You are a star mate

I just seen the cradle has crashed to the floor

Back on the desk and all working fine now
