    Default MY mouse is running all over the screen. I have no control

    When I start to go the internet or do a letter, I have a run away mouse and curser is running all over the screen without any control. How do I find the bug or is it in the mouse. Does anyone know what this is and how to stop it?

    is this just isolated to letter writing and internet? or is it whatever you do?

    is it when your trying to use the mouse? or when its at rest?

    is the mouse a wireless one? and is it laser or trackball?

    Sounds like a low battery in a wireless mouse. If it is a wireless, I would change the battery and make sure transmitter/receiver (the part that plugs into the computer) is properly placed based on manufacturer recommendations.

    If it's a wired style:

    USB: Pull the plug out of the computer, blow in the end of it, blow in the port on the computer and plug it back in.

    PS2: Same advice as USB except, shut down your computer first.

    Optical: Check the bottom of the mouse and the mouse pad for debris that might be interferring the beam.

    Vintage track-ball: Pop out the track ball, clean it and also clean off the tracks in the mouse that the ball rolls on, usually two half inch plastic rods and a third one of varying length and style.

    Good luck.
