View Full Version : mouse got a mind of its own

Today my mouse started acting screwy. The pointer just randomly zig-zags all across the screen. Anyone else have this happen? ANy suggestions?

I'm using the same mousepad I always have. Tried two different mice as well (both optical). In a split seconds time my pointer will fly down to the bottom of the screen. Driving me nuts.

I always find a different type of cheese may help.

If this happens again, before rebooting, check to see if there is a hair, or lint in the focus area of the mouse lense. These things can come and go very quickly.
