  1. Mouse cursor jumps around the screen.


    This mouse error started on January 4th, I bought this HP laptop and first used it on December 17th, 2019. There were no cursor problems at all between December 17th and January 3rd, so, I am fairly certain that this problem was the result of using the internet and downloading a virus or perhaps the sinister work of an evil hacker. The error quit happening for about one day following my posting a thread about it on another message board. But then the next day it started right up again and has been annoying me ever since.


    With my first try at fixing the cursor I searched for help pages and a Windows help page directed me to update the drivers. I did so but my computer rejected the update because I "already have the best drivers installed that exist for my computer". I did a virus scan with both Windows Defender and McAfee LiveSafe and no virus was found.


    The most common "cursor jump" is when it disappears and reappears over the start menu icon. Occasionally the cursor will jump in the other direction towards the top and right of the screen. Other times the jump seems random and uncalculated. It doesn't seem to matter whether or not I am using a mouse or the touchpad. I turned off all touchpad gestures to be sure. The cursor jumps either way whether or not I am using a mouse.


    Here is my initial record of this happening

    "1.4.2020 5.20pm MY MOUSE CURSOR MOVED INSTANTLY TO OPEN A NEW EDGE TAB TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SCREEN FROM THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN WHERE I WAS CLICKING ON A NOTEPAD TO CHANGE INFORMATION. using the touchpad mouse
    1.4.2020 6.13pm I CLICKED AND HELD THE MOUSE BUTTON TO HIGHLIGHT SOME TEXT AND INSTEAD IT DISAPPEARED AND REAPPEARED AT THE TOP OF THE EDGE WINDOW AND MOVED THE WINDOW TO THE LEFT FOR A SPLIT SECOND THEN LET GO OF THE WINDOW, EFFECTIVELY MOVING IT.
    1.4.2020 6.39pm ONCE AGAIN MY MOUSE WAS INVOLUNTARILY MOVED HALFWAY ACROSS THE SCREEN WHILE TRYING TO SELECT A LINK.

    This has of course happened countless times since then, and as I previously mentioned already in this thread, most commonly the mouse cursor jumps to the start menu button, which it wasn't really doing at all at first. So, the error has changed behavior since initiating. Other changes are that it doesn't jump to the ribbons that line the tops of the windows anymore like on that first day, where I would accidentally click and drag the window because that was where the mouse cursor reappeared.


    Sometimes it seemed as though it were timed and not at all random, as though someone were remotely causing the mouse cursor to jump at will. This was not possible of course because my computer could be disconnected from the internet and the mouse cursor would continue to jump. I also checked that my computer wasn't "tethered" through bluetooth or other wireless means. The only device that I ever connect to my laptop is an HP memory card.


    What should I do to resolve this?


    Thank you in advance for your response.

    :)

  2. Cursor and screen jumping around

    I have Lenovo laptop. I cannot type anything, anywhere, any program without the cursor and screen jumping around and I then have to re-type. In just these two sentences, I have had to re-type 6 times. I have done some of the things suggested in forums,
    but nothing has worked. Make that 9 times now. The screen also jumps around and I assure you I am not touching the mouse pad.

  3. Cursor jumps

    I did a factory reset on my computer and am using an entirely different, wired mouse and the cursor is STILL jumping to the top left.

    Any suggestions what it could be? Or what to do now? Thank you.
