Microsoff Wireless Optical Mouse - Behaving badly

  Muckleface 21:35 31 Aug 03


Ive got the Microsfot wireless optical mouse and wireless keyboard and up until a few weeks ago they worked fine.

But now the mouse pointer keeps "jumping" to the bottom left of my screen on its own and at random!

As Im sure you can appreciate this is VERY frustrating when trying to do fine detail work on a photo!

Ive replaced the batteries in both the keyboad and the mouse and Ive reset the mouse and "wirefree" receiver a few times but nothing seems to work.

Any ideas?

surfaces to use your mouse. Woodchip, think that's who it was, suggested a piece of A4 paper as a mouse mat - this worked for a time for me, but then I had to keep changing surfaces.

The best surface - more reliable - was a sheet of transparent plastic - very slightly roughened with an emery cloth.

Hope this helps.

If your OS is xp can you do a system restore?
If not uninstall and reinstall the mouse and keyboard software. I use the same kit as you and apart from one lock up due to low batts mine has worked fine..Lap..

Agree with Bodi, but if that doesn't work try newer drivers. my Logitech optical mouse was jumping to the bottom corner, a driver/software update did the trick for me.

Also check there's no fluff or dirt underneath that interferes with the lens.
