Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

HP Optical Mouse Curser jumps around

\015 Have an HP Wireless Optical Mobile Mouse. Operqating system is Windows XP. All of the time when the curser is in the arrow form it jumps all over the place. Why? Is there a correction? I just put the curser in the "I" form to give my e-mail address and it also jumps around. On 12-23-08, I bought this mouse.\015

Answers :

I respectfully disagree with amusedgeek. He is correct aout the textured surface,though.Optical mice will take snapshots many times a second and reposition the cursor according to where the pattern was last. Rather than a single color, a pattern is your best bet for an optical mouse. The only thing I recommend is to make sure the mousepad isn't reflective at all- no glossy or semi-glossy surface. You want it to be non-reflective. Just to be sure there is nothing wrong with the mouse, you can test it simply by putting it on a newspaper and scrolling around.
