Yep I agree..(so my fan vibrating theory is out the window.)
It never happened with the old mouse which had a ball thingie but this electronic sensor makes the arrow dance around all over the shop so I just blew out the dust and hey presto it's no longer dancing :)))


Surf Report 8 Jul 2008 18:18

optical mouse

blow the dust from the sensor underneath


David Report 8 Jul 2008 18:09

No, the mouse doe'nt move :)

Its the pointer on the screen does.

Even when the desks tidy.

A trojan or Virus maybe?

Hi David

You're mouse moves by itself wow, mine won't always move to where I point it and zooms off in all directions, and then my page moves inwards and outwards too sometimes, not my fault of course. lol

Devon Dweller Report 8 Jul 2008 11:51

Mine too...Ive always thought it's because of the fan in the tower making the table vibrate a little bit or something as equally technical lol


David Report 8 Jul 2008 11:17

How come?


Hoobity Report 8 Jul 2008 08:53

Hi David and all, my mouse is wireless and does this sometimes too.


David Report 8 Jul 2008 08:20

Morning Joan


David Report 8 Jul 2008 08:07

Isnt that amazing Foxy?

The leads plugged into the tower securely and the mouse is sitting on a solid desk top.

But theres a heap of paper stuff lying on the lead.. (untidy desk)

So, you've solved it :) Thank you

Hi, is your mouse/cable touching anything? Sometime i find that makes pointer act like it's alive.



David Report 8 Jul 2008 06:59

Why does my mouse pointer move slowly across my monitors screen from right to left while I'm reading whats on the page?

Just to show it has a mind of its own it slowly goes from right to left diagonally at times.

Why is this? Any ideas?
