Mouse Is Jumpy


I am using windows 7 premium with ms office home. Recently, i notice my mouse is jumpy (doesn't keep up) and the notification sounds warble (not smooth and clear sound, but broken up). A friend has suggested that there may be a compatibility problem with programs i have loaded. If that is the case i can not identify what programs are having incompatibility problems - assuming this is the problem in the first place?

Jumpy Mouse Behavior

Odd jumpy mouse behavior in win 7 x64. I have an acer aspire 5532, and when i use a usb mouse with the laptop, the mouse pointer is very inaccurate and jumpy. When tracking the mouse in a single direction, the pointer has a tendency to slide perhaps 50 pixels off in another direction on its own.

I tried a separate usb mouse and encountered the same problem; so, it is not the fault of the mouse. The same mouse works fine on other computers. It must, therefore, be a problem with the computer or os.

I have tried the following:

1. Re-installing the synaptics drivers
2. Playing with every mouse setting
3. Disabling the touchpad while using th emouse
4. Re-installing the video drivers
5. Booting into safe mode

None of these changes makes a difference. I believe there is a problem with the os that is causing this problem.

Mouse Scrolling Stuck With Wireless Mouse

I have a labtec wireless optical mouse for notebooks. It causes scrolling to involuntarily occur with sliders and drop-down boxes as long as the mouse is hovering over the item.
For example:

1) when i signed up to these forums and had to choose a country the mouse scrolled through the list right to the bottom without my intervention (other than selecting the drop-down box). Almost all drop down boxes tend to be effected regardless of what program it is in.

2) if i try to adjust the volume in the system tray the mouse raises the sound even while i am trying to lower it.

3) in certain programs the mouse will scroll through the page automatically. It does not do this with all programs. Chrome, ie, firefox, acrobat, notepad and many others are not affected.

4) i did not have these issues with xp at all, but i did when i used ubuntu (mouse would cycle through tabs and always cycle to the first box on the ubuntu taskbar. I had to alt-tab to change windows. )
 
5) when i first installed chrome the mouse would automatically scroll through the tabs to the first one even if all i did was hover over the tabs. I could could only properly select another tab if i clicked it and then moved the mouse from the tabs quickly. I did this which fixed the issue: "the document suggests changing some registry values to disable this high resolution behavior.

5 Button Mouse Acts As 2 Button Mouse

I have been using the microsoft wireless laser 8000 mouse (4 buttons & scroll wheel) without any issues under windows xp and windows server 2008 r2. Unfortunately, i am not able to get the extra functions (left, right buttons and scroll wheel) to react at all. I have the latest intellipoint 7. 0 64-bit installed. I have uninstall and reinstalled the software, uninstalled the software and did a "clean" boot to install the software, without success. How can i fix this problem?

Wireless Mouse

I am having trouble with my recently purchased 'targus' wireless mouse. It was fine till now, but all of a sudden i heard a beep from my laptop (similar one which comes when you plug/unplug something to a usb drive) and it just doesn't work anymore! No lights on the usb receiver which comes along with the mouse anymore!I remember the following things:1. I had installed updates from windows yesterday (but after that as well for couple of hours today it was fine)2. I got an alert for battery level and soon after i plugged in the power source i got the beep and mouse went dead in some moments. These may be irrelevant, but could anyone please help?

Erratic Mouse

Win 7 ultimate x64, microsoft natural wireless mouse and keyboard combo. I have great difficulty using the mouse. Had the same problem with a great logitech mouse which i thought was failing and discarded. To bad, it felt better then this one. Latest driver is installed. Problem slowly started manifesting in last month or so. No solutions in forums, other than to go with a ps2 mouse: which i would if i hadn't just spent $120 on this, anf if they still made a ps2 mouse that fit my hand!Do i have to re-install win 7 just like all the other windows releases over many years?

Mouse Scrolling

I recently installed a wireless keyboard and mouse. ( Microsoft natural wireless ergonomic keyboard 7000  and mouse, microsoft natural wireless laser mouse 7000) so, i installed the disk and the mouse has functions to zoom in go back to pages and vertical scrolling. So, it works good.

Then when i want to use my old mouse ( only can click, scroll and right click ) to play computer games as the wireless mouse does not fits me (counter strike cz), i couldn't scroll down to select weapons even when i use internet and trying to scroll down, it doesn't work.

But the wireless mouse is useful for surfing the internet so i do not wish to delete the program that allows the mouse to function. But drags me down during gaming.

Mouse Issues

This is a weird issue i am having. When i went to install, once i got to the install screen, the bar at the top that is highlighted flashes like its going into background and coming back out. Then it basically becomes unresponsive. I figured out it was the mouse. I used another mouse i had, and had the same issue. I disabled legacy support in the bios and got it to respond once but only by plugging it into the usb ports on the front of the computer, then it did the same thing once i got to the next window. I thought maybe it was a driver problem, so i just installed windows  using the keyboard.

Everything loaded fine. Once i loaded up the chipset, i installed the drivers for the mouse (all using the keyboard). Plugged in the mouse, and these are the issues:can move the mouse but clicking on any program icon is non responsive right click works on desktop keyboard or mouse will not work with any functions including the start button. Once i open the recycle bin, the window goes gray and becomes unresponsive. Ran memory test everything was fine this issue is weird.

Smooth Mouse

On this one video on youtube this one guy made his mouse totally smooth on windows xp by right clicking on my computer, going to mice and other pointing devices, clicking on the mouse he was using, going to advanced, and then setting the sample rate to 200. Well when i try this on vista it doesn't show advanced settings under the mouse i'm using (im using a logitech g5 laser mouse). So if anybody knows how to do this on vista please tell me how.

Mouse Clicks On Its Own

This is the third laptop i have purchased in the last month. I originally thought it was a problem with the computer. But after now just opening my third brand new computer today, it appears it is just a glitch with windows 7 since it has occured on all computers. When hovering over a link (online or off) with my cursor/mouse, the computer will click on its own sometimes; thus taking me to another page that i didn't necessarily want to go to. Not always, but just enough to be annoying. Can anyone help?

Mouse Stuttering

I'm experiencing horrible mouse stuttering whenever my old raid-0 is in heavy use. Same happens with keyboard - typing in stuff works but the characters appear at random intervals and in bursts. Disabling/enabling aero etc makes really no difference. Other hdds work fine without the stutter (including my external usb hdd). I'm not using a wireless mouse, my os is located on a new ssd drive. Effects occur also when the system isn't overclocked. Any help is much appreciated, this is really driving me insane.

Mouse Acceleration

I don't know what is different but the way my mouse performs windows 7 bothers me and i'm thinking it is due to the mouse acceleration curves, thresholds, sensitivity, etc. A similar question regarding disabling mouse acceleration was asked a few weeks ago (link to post ) and the answer or "fix" was to adjust the mouse key settings under the control panel>>ease of access (accessibility options in xp)

My question is what do the mouse key settings (a feature to control the mouse cursor with directional keys on your keyboard) have to do with the way the actual mouse performs? I thought the mouse performance was controlled solely by the registry settings mousesensitivity , mousespeed , mousethreshold1 , mousethreshold2 , smoothmousexcurve , and smoothmouseycurve.could someone clear up my confusion?

Mouse Very Jerky

Windows 7 64bit, all windows updates applied as well as proper hardware drivers. Hardware is an amd phenom ii x4 955 cpu - quad core at 3. 2ghz.amd890gx chipset, 4gig of ddr3 memory. Ati radeon 4800 pcie video card. Mouse is a wireless laser mouse 6000. Fresh batteries. Unobstructed receiver. When running any kind of program installer, the mouse is very "jerky" on the screen. Checking the task manager, i see that one core is running very high - 95%, but the other three cores are near idle. Memory usage never changes - 1. 9gig used. Looking at the processes tab, the highest cpu usage i see is 2% for task manager itself. With three idle cores, why would the mouse be jerky?

Which Mouse To Buy?

I'm a little bit desperate because i cannot find a single mouse from logitech or microsoft that suits my needs. Shop salesman i have consulted in various local shops have absolutely no knowledge (they read what's at the back of the casing and if i ask a question they have no idea).

Use cases: gaming development with visual studio

Must have:- ergonomic (right hand) cordless laser 4 way scrolling no batteries to replace (i do not want to replace batteries, it needs to have some cradle (is this the right word?) To put it in so it charges. Currently i use a logitech mx5000 mouse, however it doesn't fit into the cradle in a way that you can just put it in there; you need to put it in exactly so it starts charging. Often i have to spend several minutes for it.

Color scheme should fit a logitech dinovo edge, samsung syncmaster 226bw, xbox elite (black). (Basically black and silver/grey in a more business style). Price less than 200 euro

Should have:- dust resistant (no big openings at the top) would be nice. Additional keys led to show the remaining charge sensitivity control bluetooth. If you know any mouse that fits in here please help me.

Mouse Stopped Responding

Yesterday the mouse of my computer completely stopped responding. It syncs fine with the wireless receiver, and has fresh batteries in it. Read on to see that i've tested both the usb ports and tried using other mice.

To fix the problem i have already tried:

1. Test the mouse on another computer. It works fine.

2. Test a different mouse that has been confirmed to work on the problem computer. No response from that one either.

3. Test both wired and wireless mice that have been tested. New batteries in the wireless mice. No response.

4. Test the usb ports by plugging in both thumb drives and a printer into each usb port. All ports work and load fine.
5. Update driver - no update found
6. Uninstall driver, reboot - mouse not loaded.
7. Uninstall intellipoint, which updated 2 days ago. No improvement.
8. Uninstall other windows update from 2 days ago. Still nothing.
9. Beg the computer for mercy because i have a client waiting for a product in 2 days. Nothing.

This computer is running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. The test laptop is running win 7 ultimate 32 bit. The mouse which is normally allocated to this computer is a microsoft wireless optical mouse 2. 0

Usb Mouse Keeps Disconnecting

I have a g5 usb mouse that keeps stopping (and the lights and the laser turns off). I have been using vista when it started and looking at on the net i got only one answer my irq is messed up. I had a copy of windows 7 so i thought that may fix it. It didn't. My irq has 2 irqs that are sharing. Both have a usb driver on them. Irq #20 has "high definition audio controller" and "standard open hcd usb host controller.

And irq #22 "nvidia nforce networking controller" and "standard enhanced pci to usb host controller". I have tried every thing i can think of but no go.
(And i have almost broke my mouse it is so bad).

Mouse Problems With Win7

Since installing windows 7 i've had a conflict with my usb mouse and the touchpad on my dell inspiron 1520. With vista, the touchpad was disabled when i plugged in the usb mouse. With windows 7, it remains active, and every time the heel of hand brushes it while typing, the cursor moves. Since i am not always watching the display as i type this is not only distracting, but causes considerable delay while i clean up the resulting mess. With xp, i would simply disable the touchpad, but i can find no way to do so in win 7. Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem?
 
Btw: when i look at the device details, i see two (2) displays for a hid usb mouse and 1 for a ps2 mouse. Is one of them the touchpad.

Wireless Mouse 5000

I bought wireless desktop 3000 kit. Keyboard is really amazing and also mouse. Problem that i am facing is that, i have installed everything.

Wireless Mouse Does Not Work

I have a microsoft wireless comfort keyboard 4000 and a microsoft wireless laser mouse 5000. All of a sudden the mouse stopped working. I can see the cursor arrow on the screen but my mouse wont move it. My operating system is vista 64-bit. I have gone through all the diagnostic steps to no avail: replaced the batteries, downloaded the latest software from microsoft, changed usb ports, tried another computer and checked my device manager. The device manager tells me the mouse is working properly. It may be that the mouse is dead but i though before the burial that i would take a chance to see if anyone out there had a similar problem but solved it.

Disappearing Mouse Pointer

After a while of using my laptop, my mouse pointer gets uncontrollable for a few seconds. After it starts disappearing or moving objects, maximizing and minimizing for a few seconds it (sometimes) goes back to normal for about a minute and starts acting erratic again. This will go on for hours or until i get frustrated and shut down my system. Is this happening with any other users. If so please tell me how to fix this problem, i am tired of losing unsaved data. I lost seven chapters the other night.

Mouse Pointer Madness

Has anyone else found that sometimes in the win 7 rc that there mouse pointer sometimes goes funny. Basically the pointer becomes small parts of itself repeated a hand full of times. So basically you have around 8 pointy bits of the cursor repeated vertically. It seems to be a intermittent problem, i don't have it all the time and the functionality remains, it's just quite annoying. Basically is there a solution to this problem or is my machine just being a pain, and i have to live with it :p.

I can't seem to disable the mouse hover feature. The hover feature is active and selects items i don't want to be activated. A program i was installing asked to install third party software but before i could select no the mouse was hover over yes and installed the the third part software. I was also uninstalling all the unwanted software that came with my new computer and it selected a program to uninstall that runs my media. I can't disable it. I've tried folder options, mouse options, and ease of access with no luck. The disable feature doesn't exist.

Mouse Trouble In Games

Ok, i recently installed windows 7 and received a new computer. When i am playing this online game, which i have played before on my old computer, one of the attacks requires you to hold the right mouse button down for 2-3 seconds. You can also hold the mouse button down for an infinite amount of time after the 2-3 seconds until you release it, which initiates the attack. Now on this computer, when i try the attack, the system releases the mouse button for me, even while i hold down the right mouse button. I am wondering if it is the system, or something windows 7 is reading.

Mouse Sensitivity Issues

I have problems getting my mouse pointer to move easily over items i wish to select. I have windows 7 on three home computers - two laptops and 1 desktop - and all three of my external mouses have the same problem. Changing the pointer speed and other settings has not worked, nor has switching to a non-wireless mouse (just plugged into a usb port). It is extremely frustrating. We no longer game on our computers - that would be a nightmare - but it is also a royal pain to just try to surf the web and click on links.

I had vista on two of these same computers and had the same problem, so i wound up only using the one with xp for a year until windows 7 came out. I love this new version, but the mouse problems are really making me begin to consider apple.

No Mouse Cursor In Games

I have recently installed windows 7 rc and update all drivers up to latest direct x, but for some reason when i play certain games eg. Mass effect, or dow2 the mouse cursor will not show up and i have to guesstimate where it is to do anything. I have tried the program in vista sp2 compatibility and xp sp3 and even run under admin privileges is there anything else i can do to get this working. The specs of the pc are amd turion64 x2, nvidia 8400 geforce go, and 3gb of ram, and it worked fine when i was running it on vista
