    Mouse pointer moving erratically


    Hello:

    I have just installed Microsoft Precision mouse in a cleanly installed Windows 10, v 1909 with the help of a member of this forum (hsehestedt, thanks again). However, I now have a problem that I did not have in v 1803, namely, the pointer is stopping, then jumping ahead, behaving like a scolded rat. This does not happen, as far I can see, on the desktop, but almost everywhere else (in apps, for instance).

    I have unchecked "Hide pointer while typing" (commonly recommended). Checking or unchecking "Enhance pointer precision" does not seem to make a difference.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    :)
     

  2. Razer Taipan mouse pointer moving erratically after Windows 10 update

    I'm using the Razer Taipan mouse. The mouse pointer has been moving erratically since the last Windows 10 update a few days.

    Yesterday I called Razer support. They had me uninstall the software and also delete the mouse from the list of hardware in the control panel. Then I restarted my computer and reinstalled the software. That worked for all of yesterday. This morning the mouse
    pointer is moving erratically again.

    I've followed the procedure from yesterday of uninstalling the software, removing the mouse from the list of hardware in the control panel, restarting the computer and reinstalling the software. This time it has not solved the problem.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi,

    You can customize your mouse in a variety of ways in Windows. To change how your mouse pointer looks, you can follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the Start menu, then click Control Panel.
    • Select Mouse, then go to the Pointers tab.
    • Select the pointer you prefer from the drop-down list, click
      Apply > OK.

    If you want to use a pointer that is not on the list, you can download it online. After that, go to Control Panel > Mouse > Pointers tab again, then click
    Browse.

    Update us if it addressed your issue.

    Microsoft 5000 Mouse scroll eratic jumps up and down all over the place

    Hi,

    There are several reasons why the wireless mouse pointer moves erratically, like the battery is low or there is a problem with the device itself.

    We suggest that you perform the following steps:

    • Connect the mouse receiver to a different port, like the ports at the back of your computer which typically have more bandwidth or power available and make sure to by pass any USB hubs.
    • Check or replace with new batteries.
    • Test the device on a different computer, this will help us identify if the issue coming from the computer or your mouse.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.
