    Have a Compaq 5300US computer with Compaq PS2 Compatible Mouse (made by MS);
    using MS Windows XP Home edition. Lately the Pointer becomes erratic and
    jumps all over the screen. Have tried all the troubleshooting techniques
    and nothing helps. After re-booting it works okay for a few minutes.
    Anybody have any suggestions that might work. Thank you.

  4. Have you tried taking the ball out of the mouse and cleaning the rollers?

    My cursor was doing the same as you describe when it was time to buy a
    new mouse. So I replaced it and *wallah*! Problem solved.

    Open the Control Panel. Open "Mouse". Go to the "Pointer Options" tab.
    Move the first slider toward the left.
    Not all of them apparently.
    Which means what?

    This signature SUCKS!
