Odd Mouse Movements

  rogertjj 14:53 07 Jun 2004

This has been annoying me or a while now, so I I thought I'd ask the experts, and see if anyone has any idea of whats causing it.

Randomly, the cursor will jump to the edge of the screen when ever I am doing something with the mouse. For example, I am about to click on a link on a web page, and the cursor flies to the top left of the screen. I have run Ad-aware, Spybot and AVG. All found nothing. It doesn't only happen when using one application, and I haven;t installed anything new recently. Anyone have any idea what might be causing the problem ?

All help greatly appreciated

Forgot to mention : Running XP Home, AMD XP3000, 512MB RAM, 120GB HDD with Optial Mouse (corded)

What kind of mouse is it? Wireless / Optical / touchpad (on a laptop)? or traditional ?

optial = Optical

My optical mouse did this and I've been wracking my brains as to why it did it and how I cured it. If I remember correctly it was the driver software for my A4 tech mouse that caused the problem, I changed it to a PS2 compatible mouse using the microsoft driver and since then its been perfect.

Yes I think totally-braindead isn`t - I mean he`s right. This cured it for me too. Simply downloaded the latest Logitech driver in my case and it worked fine with XP.

if its a mouse with a rf reciever try moving the reciever away from either the monitor or computer base unit

It may be that the batteries need replacing.

Thanks for all the replies, installing the latest Logitech drivers seemed to do the trick.

Graham ® :) Like the idea of the 'Crazy Mouse'!!!

Now, when I say 'seemed to do the trick' I actually lied. I am still having the same problems, and it is really annoying.

Does anyone have any idea what this may be...and it's not the 'Crazy Mouse' :)
