Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Mouse arrow is skipping around when I move the mouse.

\015 When moving my finger back and forth on the mousepad, the arrow skips around the screen randomly. I have a Compaq Presario CQ50. Plugging in a mouse doesn't help. My freind suggested that this is happening because the left click button is very slightly depressed, but I don't know if that's the promblem. Can you please help?\015

Answers :
