    Mouse jumping around/ moving on its own


    Today I was playing a game, Endless Legend, when my mouse started zooming in and out really quickly. At first I thought it was just me touching the trackpad accidentally, but it carried on even when I wasn't touching the PC. I even unplugged my physical mouse and the problem continued. Later on I checked, and my trackpad had been disabled the entire time.

    Eventually I deleted my mouse drivers for the trackpad and the physical mouse, updated windows, and restarted the computer.

    Now the problem is much better, but still remains in a slightly different form - the cursor jumps around and moves slightly upwards almost constantly. Before it was a problem with the scroll, now the cursor itself is moving.

    I fired up Endless Legend again and noticed that the jumping was more intense while I was playing. When I closed the game down the cursor stopped moving and is now (almost) completely still.

    Really strange. Does anyone have any ideas about this one?

    :)

    OneNote page jumps when moving mouse if marker is present

    This is a bug report rather than a question - do please advise if there is somewhere more appropriate to send it.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Create a page containing exactly one text box, with a single word
    2. Label this line with a "marker", e.g. check box or question mark.
    3. Move the mouse repeatedly over and out of/into the textbox area.
    Expected response: nothing to happen except for the mouse cursor to move.

    Observed response: the whole view jumps horizontally sporadically.

    Details: I'm using OneNote for Windows 10, version 17.9226.20641.0. Windows 10 is version 1709, build 16299.431.

    Additional comments:

    Whilst reproducible in a very small example as described above, the problem is more pernicious in a more heavily populated page that contains a mix of text and images. Moving the cursor still results in horizontal jumping, but sometimes the entire view gradually
    shifts to one side. This jumping is visually jarring, and greatly detracting to the overall experience.

    Moved from Office / OneNote / Windows 10 / Office 365 Home

    Mouse jumping around/ moving on its own

    AMD FX OC'ers Club

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
