    I need help regarding my laptop, my mouse ocassionally acts strangley,
    sometimes the mouse will fly accross the screen right clicking and opening
    programs etc, even though i have hardly touched it?, usually only when
    running on battery power, only rarely happening on ac power, it is xp home

    Many thanks

    Hi Sorry,

    Yes mouse is the cursor, laptop is an advent 7008, no external mouse, it is
    the laptops inbuilt touchpad, nothing to do with any programs, can be at
    anytime even just moving across the desktop,

    Its as if the touchpad believes that it is being told to move in that way
    and that it has been told to click on things?
