Default Why is my mouse/arrow flying to the corners fo my screen?

I don't know what is going on, but for the past week my cursor is flying to one of the corners of my screen, and I won't know where it is unless I move the mouse around a lot and see it again. What the hell is going on?

flying around by itself? or when you touch the mouse? also there is a setting you can turn on that when you hit CTRL it shows where the cursor is.

Sounds like somebody poisoned your mouse. Probably DCON. Unfortunately they fed it to your mouse and not our Mouseboy, AJ

Ok smart asses.

Yes, it's doing it by itself without me touching or moving the mouse.

I already cleaned the laser.

I am WAY too sick to be drinking.

With all these dogs around, we don't keep poison in the house.

Is this on a laptop with a touch pad? I used to have that problem with mine when I was doing motorsport support. After being in the sun for awhile (matter of minutes), the arrow would go crazy. Maybe yours is getting too warm? We ended up disabling the touchpads and only used the stick thingy in the center of the keyboard.

I have had that same thing with laptops. It can be either the touch pad or the little ball thingie that dell had.

We had that problem at the station with 2 of the computers in different rooms. Both were the same microsoft wireless mouse model and when one person was working the mouse icon on the other computer was going all over. Changed the 'mice' and things were all good.

if that's not it.... maybe Mickey is on Crack
