Mouse Cursor Jumps Around


After installing windows 7 home pre  x64 i noticed cursor jumps around the screen when doing something. I did not have this problem with vista ultimate. I was using a logitech kb mouse mx1100 combo, i uninstalled it, installed ms intellimouse and a generic usb kb. I ruled out the possibility of a specific mouse/kb hw or driver causing this problem. I still see the cursor jumping when doing something like clicking on a button, resizing a window or similar task that causes the cursor to jump to some place unexpected. Can you help me with this problem?

Cursor Jumps / Moves / Jumping Problem

I have seen many posts of people with the same issue - my cursor just jumps in the middle of typing an email (or any other text). It is driving me mad. I have seen many different solutions too and i don't know where to start. I am pretty sure it has nothing to do with me touching the touch pad while typing as my fingers go nowhere near it. I have tried updating my drivers, but the system says the drivers are fine and there are no better versions available. I have upgraded to windows 7, done a clean install and have not done any updates since, so i don't see what a system restore would change, unless it is advised that i go back to vista?

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

Mouse Cursor Click Problem

When i use my mouse everything works fine and perfect. However when i try to play a game on my computer, and this happens on more than one game the mouse does not match were the cursor is. To explain lets say its a list of going 1, 2, 3, 4. Top to bottom. Well if i put my cursor on 3 it will highlight 1. So it is off by about an inch. But when im not playing a game it is wonderful
Ps- and a short question. Should i use sleep or hibernate on a desktop. Cause mine never responds when i try to wake it back up? Any ideas?

Mouse Cursor Wont Move

Today i did something really stupid. I was in an unsupervised chatroom earlier and another person and i got into it and i could definently tell that i angered him. I left the chatroom and about 15 mins later im on another website and the mouse cursor suddenly freezes and will not scroll on the page. Everything else seems to be working fine. So i restart the computer, the mouse is working when the windows password page comes up, so i type in the password and that page loads and then the main page comes up (the one with all the programs etc) and as soon as that pops up that is when the mouse cursor freezes and will not scroll or move.

Everything else continues to upload and seems to be working fine. So i restart the computer and put it in safe mode and the mouse works fine moves and everything. Anyways, the bottom line is i think that other person sent me a virus or something that wont allow my cursor to move in regular mode. What should i do? Also, i cannot get the sound to work on my computer in safe mode.

The bottom right volume icon says "audio service not running" and i would like it running in safe mode until i can get this cursor problem resolved. Any help is greatly appreciated and please explain in laymans terms because i know absolutely nothing about computers. Thank you so much for your time and have a beautiful day.

Mouse / Cursor Frozen In Gaming

I have windows 7 build 7100 installed on my new pc. I have installed 6 games, 2 work fine and 4 do not. The problem with the ones that do not is that after installation, when you go to the main load menu, the cursor is frozen in one place but the action still works even though you can not see where it is pointing. I am able to dual boot my pc between 7 x64 / vista x64 / and xp x86.

When i load the games in vista and xp they work fine. All drivers are up to date and they are the same version on all platforms. I also just loaded windows 7 enterprise edition and i am still having the same problem. So far both ati and the game manufactures are not helping and saying this is a windows 7 problem. Here are my specs, anyone have any ideas?

Black Screen After Login With Mouse Cursor

I have windows 7 enterprise (bitlockered with tpm).system worked fine for a week. Hp elitebook laptop with nvidia fx2700 video (installed display driver from hp site).

Today i logged in and get a black screen with mouse cursor. Can move cursor around screen. Laptop appears to be running, but screen is black. Can not bring up task manager (or can not see it).
This is not a monitor selection issue (can't switch to another monitor). Plus, mouse cursor is visible.

If i hit crtl-alt-delete, the menu comes up. I can logoff or reboot (can not see task manager).
If i logoff or restart, i go to the windows login screen as normal. Attempt to login and get same black screen. I am trying to login to a domain account.

I can login to local admin account. Seems to work fine from this profile. Is this just a corrupt profile issue? Recreating profile will be difficult from off site. Can try system restore.

I have seen several questions posted regarding black screens, but symptoms seem varied in each case.
Has anyone else had a similar scenario and found an easy fix?

Jumping Cursor

I have seen this problem noted-but no good solutions. Removed and replaced xp on sony vaio notebook with 7 ultimate. Effort was a success-worked perfectly. But after a couple of weeks sometimes, the cursor jumps around when i try to type. Usually goes backwards from mid-word to a previous word or even previous line. Very annoying. Doesn't happen all the time and sometimes is much worse than other times. Maybe got worse with windows updates. Have turned aero off with windows classic (boring) and slowed pointer down. Touchpad is working fine. Video card doesn't have any new drivers and is irreplaceable. Would that cause the problem?

Automatic Cursor Clicking

I've been using windows 7 for the past 2 months. You know how when you leave the cursor sitting on the screen over an item, the window will suddenly change (it's as if you clicked on the item, but you did not - you just left the cursor there). Can someone please tell me if this feature can be turned off? I prefer to click when i click, like the older versions of windows. Does anyone know what this new feature is called? I do not like it. It does not work for me.

Black Screen Of Death With No Cursor

I have tried what people suggested about using control alt del to no avail. I have even tried to reinstall windows 7 to no avail. The computer worked fine when first installed, then after an update, everything went to pot. Now when i start up the computer, the microsoft logo comes up, then goes to black with no cursor visible and my monitor states "no signal". I am running an amd phenom x4 955 with windows 7 ultimate. This is very frustrating. I cannot get onto the internet from my home computer at all or do any thing. I have tried booting from the cd. No help.

Cursor Has Vertical Lines Behind Pointer

I have an ati x1200 amd turion 64. I have windows 7 home premium 32 bit. The cursor just started having verical lines behind the pointer.

I have downloaded windows updates. My laptop is an averatec 2500 series. I recently upgraded from vista to windows 7. The pointer has been okay until yesterday is when the vertical lines started appearing.

Black Screen With Cursor On Boot

Upd win 7 pro black screen with cursor on boot, nothing works windows 7 pro ati 5870, latest drivers. X58 chipset , 6 gb ram. Ok. Today, i went on my computer, logged on, then explorer started to crash. It kept restarting explorer and explorer immediately crashed. So, i held the power button for 5 seconds, because there was no other way. When i restarted, the only thing i saw was a black screen with nothing but a movable cursor on it.

So, i tried pressing ctrl alt del, or crtl shift esc to open task manager. Still black screen, nothing happens. I tried startup repair with windows install disk, says remove any new devices. I don't have any new devices. I tried system restore . Says restored successfully , but still black screen at reboot. When i looked at system restore, there was a critical windows update not too long before explorer started to crash, so maybe i screwed up the update by not letting it configure it - i shut it off before it could do anything because the "explorer stopped responding" alert box locked my computer - i could not click anything, and it kept appearing.

Seriously, what the heck is going on? I mean i can reinstall windows, but with all my programs and configuration, this takes days also, the screen flashes at regular intervals, like it's trying to change or recover the display driver. My monitor shows the "no signal" message for about 2 seconds then it shows the cursor again. Upd: after trying to start explorer manually, it finally gave me an error message, it says that explorerframe.dll is missing. But it is not missing, there is a file names explorerframe.dll in the system 32 folder

Multi Monitor System Issue With Cursor

Touching the touchscreen monitor causes the cursor to appear on a different monitor in a windows 7 multi-monitor system. There are three (3) monitors on this system. Two of them are dell 2407wfp-hc lcd monitors and one is the acer t230h touchscreen monitor. The dell monitors are connected to an nvidia quadro fx3500 and identify as monitors 1 and 2. The acer monitor is connected to an nvidia geforce 7600gs and identifies as monitor 3. The system is running windows 7 ultimate x64, with current updates. Everything works properly except for the touchscreen feature.

As instructed i used tablet pc setup to configure the touchscreen. In setup, dell monitor 2 reports incorrectly as having touch input available, and the acer monitor 3 reports as not having touch input available - also incorrect. When i touch the acer monitor, the cursor appears on dell monitor 2 and moves according to the motion of my finger on the acer monitor.

Blank Screen On Restart With A Cursor Blinking

I have a inspiron 1545 and when i restart with a verizon wireless modem plugged in to a usb port & it gives me a blank screen with a cursor blinking in the top left corner. When i pull it out on restart it boots. However, when i start it with it plugged in it works fine. I know the problem is my computer because my wife has the same 1545 and no problem. I can work around by pulling it, on restart but it seems my computer has a problem.

Also, upon further testing it is not the verizon wireless modem only , that hanged up restart. It is the fact i have 2 modems plugged in. The other is a wireless logitech mouse. When i take either out restart works. So with both plugged in restart goes to a blank screen & when i only have one of them plugged in restart works. I have disabled the usb on boot sequence and it had no effect. Any ideas?

Cursor Hovering Over Taskbar Icons Issue

Cursor hovering over task bar icons gives small screen image for ms word, but only tiny icon on white background for ms excel. I love the new windows 7 task bar, but am puzzled by inconsistencies. If i have a file open in ms word (2007), and i put the cursor on the ms word icon in the task bar, i see a small screen image of the open file. But if i do the same thing to excel (also 2007), instead of seeing the spreadsheet image i see a tiny excel file icon in a blank white square. This isn't helpful. I want to see the small image of the open spreadsheet. Excel is the only program that does this on the task bar.

Also, i have task bar programs that, once opened, create a second icon on the taskbar, and only that second image reacts to the hovering cursor. Is this because the programs are not written for the new windows 7 taskbar?

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.

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?

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.
