Mouse problems

Posted by pkspigs (My Page) on

I have a new wireless mouse, did the same thing with the old mouse. The pointer jumps all over the page and it is impossible to control. I have done everything I know how to fix it. I have slowed down the mouse , etc. Why is it doing this? I cannot use the computer because you cannot control the darn thing. Thanks, pk

Are your hands anywhere near a mouse pad?

Is this a laptop by chance? If so turn off the touch pad that can happen.

We have some problems with a wireless keyboard and Wii even when the Wii is not doing anything. It has been awhile I have forgotten details.

I'd consider getting a wired USB mouse.

RE: Mouse problems

Are you using your mouse on a shiny surface? Have encountered completely erratic behavior for some mice that way. Put a piece of paper underneath and see if it stabilizes.
Are the drivers completely up to date?
Have you tried another port if it's usb?
Finally, is it connected usb and ps/2? Try only usb.
Those are some of the issues I encounter regularly with wireless.

You may be confusing a wireless problem with an optical problem. A mouse sensor does not work well (stable) on some materials. And some lights can even pass through the mouse case to confuse the optical sensor.

westom-
That's a very good point. It would be good to hear what the OP is using for the surface the mouse is on. I have mainly had problems with wireless laser mice when I try them on certain surfaces like a glass table top. As soon as I remember to put something down, even a piece of paper, the tracking problem goes away.
