Mouse Cursor Click Triggering


For no obvious reason my laptop has developed a fault where if you move it slightly it triggers the mouse click and starts triggering actions (depending on where the cursor is pointing). Anybody experienced this before?

For example if you are sitting with it on your lap surfing the web then adjust your sitting position you end up navigating to different web pages - any thoughts?

It is a fujitsu siemens amillo laptop.

Mouse Single Click Does Double Click

I used different mice (one with rubber ball and another optical) and both give me the same problems. The rubber ball mouse was connected via ps2 and the optical is usb. When i click-drag, two different situations happen. It's either i'm not able to drag at all (as if the mouse button was let go before i drag, but i'm sure my finger's pressed down on the left mouse button), or i get an incomplete click-drag (aka, the mouse acts like i released the left mouse button while dragging. )

Sometimes, the partial click-drag happens, and without letting go of the left mouse button, another area is click-dragged (along the mouse pointer path). It doesn't matter what application i'm using - word, photoshop, programming language editors, even trying to highlight text on ie's address bar is a gamble. I checked all my hardware configurations in control panel | system and windows doesn't show any irq conflicts or corrupt drivers. It says "this device is working properly" for my mouse and all usb ports. There are times that when i single click, the mouse "quantum-jumps" to a different location on the screen. Then i can drag the mouse from there. This doesn't happen very frequently but it's frequent enough to slow me down in the things i need to do. The interrupted drag happens probably around 90% of the time i try to perform the task. Then there's that "evil single click" that acts as a double click. If i were in ie, clicking the back button once will take me two pages back. This evil single click is probably the cause of why i'm unable to click-drag effectively.

I Can Move The Mouse But Not Click On Anything

Problem i have is with my mouse. The last time it was in use i was having some minor issues with it cutting in and out on my laptop but i figured that may have been the laptop. My problem comes when i boot the system and load in i can move the mouse but not click on anything, i got the drivers installed but still nothing. I then uninstalled the drivers this morning and after a few minutes of still not being able to click i can now. Mouse: razer diamonback (not the 3g), os: vista ultimate 64bit. I have attempted to put the mouse in a couple different usb spots and they all have the same problem on boot up and not being able to click on anything.

On Click Mouse Highlight / Select Everything On A Page

I seriously have no idea what's been going on. My mouse seems to have become possessed today as it's doing some funky things. I have the mx duo keyboard and mouse combo and have owned them for less than a year. Problems that i are having with it are primarily with its responses. Sometimes when i click on certain links the poitner turns into a "wrong or no sign" (basically a circle with a line through it). Other times when i click only once on a page or on desktop and try to scroll down it begins to highlight everything. It's as though the mouse is lagging. I don't think it's any of my applications. The only thing i have recently changed about my setup is my monitor, but everything else has been fine up until now. Does anyone know if gel padded mouse pads can wear enough to the point that the mouse doesn't read correctly? Anyone have any suggestions?

Mouse Can Move But Doesn't Recognize Any Click

I have a gigabyte 7v-axp motherboard using a ps/2 mouse. Yesterday some water was spilt on my keyboard and mouse (not by me), anyway keyboard and mouse did not work anymore.got a new keyboard and mouse. Keyboard works fine but mouse does not. The mouse will move but will not recognize any kind of click. The left mouse button occasionally responds and the right never does. When the left mouse button does work it does not work properly. I have tried using the mouse in a usb port and still does not work. Updated the driver from microsoft but i have ruled out it being a driver problem since i dual boot with linux and the mouse does not work in linux. So now im leaning on being a motherboard problem, but it is odd that the mouse can move fine without a problem and does light up when windows starts, etc. The only thing i could thing of is the bus that the clicks go through on the motherboard maybe shorted out?

Mouse Cursor Moves Automatically From Up To Down

Whenever i connect my pc to internet (dialup, gprs) my mouse pointer starts messing up with me. It automatically starts moving from up to down from left to right randomly. I think i should specify here that it only happens when i connect my pc to net. Whenever i try to click on some link it just slips down. I think there is no problem with the mouse or there is no hardware related problem, i have tried replacing the mouse but of no use. The only thing in my mind is a virus or some stupid trojan tryin to hijack my mouse pointer. Any body having any idea what's wrong?

Mouse Pointer ( Cursor ) Not Responding

My friend is having a problem with his mouse not working. He is able to move the mouse cursor around but then it doesn't respond when clicking on an icon, taskbar, or anything. Can anyone help diagnose the problem we are are having?

He is running windows xp 32bit and his comp is really old (his mouse still uses the track ball and is not via usb port) and i think his pc has some other problems of it's own that could be related to this, but i don't know.

Mouse Cursor ( Pointer ) Veers Off The Screen

I am using a dell latitude laptop, wih an external wired mouse. This laptop also has something called a synaptic touchpad, plus a ball in the center of the keyboard, with two buttons (right and left clicks). The os is windows 2000, and i use ms office 2003. The problem is at times, say usually when i have been using the laptop for 20+ minutes or so, the mouse indicator (pointer) on the screen suddenly "comes alive" and veers off to the right, left, top or bottom - and off the visible screen. At times like this, using the external mouse does not bring the pointer back. I literally struggle (no jokes!) With the ball to bring the mouse back into focus, and click on the links i need, or i use keyboard commands. This problem is really compounded when there are multiple windows open, the windows either start replicating, resizing or closing. Mostly this is so infuriating that i shut the system down. I use the power off button since because of all the activity on the screen, i am not even able to shut down. When i start up again, things are back to normal, well at least for sometime! Any suggestions?

When Using Mouse Computer Beeps And Cursor Freezes

Its nothing to do with any program but like when im using my mouse i just get some beeps from the computer like 1beep, 2beeps, 1beep then my mouse will freeze and i either get movement back and its all ok or the cursor freezes but everything else is ok, i will give 2 examples

1. I was on the desktop, msn messenger was dl'ing and i just finished updating direct x. The folder with everything i extracted i highlighted and tried to move then i got those beeps and the cursor froze, but msn continued dl'ing and then completed! I reset and installed it, wasnt even corrupt or owt. 2. As i was filling out system specs in user cp now, i went to click on the privacy thing if i want others to see my specs and as i clicked i got the beeps but i got movement back, then a few mins later as i tried to scroll down same thing but im still going. Now as im writing this im running blend test on orthos and 50 mins so far. Also i have speedfan running. - Ram? Maybe a possiblity but surely orthos would have shown that by now?
- Cpu overheating? But idle im 25 degrees and right now under 100% load im 40 degrees
- Psu? Not enough power or something? But i aint got a powerhouse rig really. Any help is appreciated! And the beep happend again now! Also, i checked the manual if the beeps meant anything and nothing, but any beeps you get is when post, not in windows.

Mouse Cursor Makes My Computer Freeze

My computer is almost brand new, and quite the powerhouse, but for some reason, using the mouse will make the computer freeze up no blue screen of death, no error messages, it just dies and dosen't respond to anything. I can't ctrl+alt+del at all, and even pinging this machine from another (business intranet) results in lost packets (100% loss everytime. )

The solutions i have tried are numerous. First i thought if i changed drivers, nothing. New mouse, went from a ps/2 mechanical mouse to a usb optical mouse, complete with new drivers, no change still. Irq settings, seem ok, but i didn't look too deeply into that. Dma channels, seem ok. So, if this was some simple issue like a bad ps/2 port, i can understand, but using the keyboard to navigate my whole machine is getting a little annoying. Any suggestions from anyone?

Huge Mouse Cursor In World Of Warcraft

Since upgrading to a 5870 card, whenever i play wow my mouse cursor increases in size to about double the normal size. If i turn off hardware cursor in wow it goes back to normal. Funny thing is that when i quit to windows 7 it still stays larger than normal. I tried installing wow from scratch. The second that i put the wotlk disk in and started the installer the cursor in windows 7 increased in size just like it did in the game itself !

Has anyone else found this happening to them ? It's bloody annoying me.

Mouse Cursor Random Movement Horizontally Across The Screen

I have been having this problem for the past few months. The mouse cursor just flies across the screen to and from horizontally. This problem stopped when i installed a internal modem but started again when i removed it. The motion stops when i disconnect the mouse when the computer is running. So the problem most probably lies with the mouse, mouse cable, or mouse connector. I need to narrow down the source of the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do that.

Mouse Issues When Move The Cursor In A Diagonal Direction

Okay so i've been trying to figure this out for a couple of days and my mouse has been really bothering me. Prior to my reformat, my razor diamondback performed flawlessly. After i reformatted my computer a couple of days ago (with a real version of winxp mind you), it would have problems when i tried to move the cursor in a diagonal direction. Before the reformat, when i moved my cursor in a diagonal direction (regardless of speed) it would smoothly move diagonally; after the reformat however, the cursor would either move down then to the side or to the side then down instead of smoothly moving diagonally like before. All the drivers have been installed (the same ones that i used before) and nothing has been physically changed. It's driving me crazy because i now have to spend extra time trying to aim the cursor to click the right button when before it would take less than a second. I've also tried to use the other usb ports on my computer as well with the same result, my logitech mx revolution also has the same problem albeit less noticeably so i'm using that for now. Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Mouse Cursor Shoots Towards The Left Upper Of The Screen

When i'm scrolling around the screen, the cursor pauses as it heads/directed towards the the left or left upper side of the screen. It starts to studder and with like the power of lighten somethings shoots towards the left upper 1/3 of the screen and crashes the system. No blue screen of death, and if any animation is playing it continues to play, but there is no response from the mouse nor keyboard and the only thing that works is the off button

Anyone heard of this crazyness b4. I know a moth can crash a system (hence the term computer bug :p) , but a mouse doing this is strange.

Monitor Goes Dark Then Returns, Mouse Cursor Freezes Afterwards

I believe it is a thermal problem with the video card, but i'm not sure. After the box has been on for 30-60 minutes (or so) the monitor goes dark for a second then returns. This happens a few times and if it really gets bad (more frequent) the dark periods get longer that the monitor goes into standby mode then returns with the mouse cursor frozen that i have to reboot to get it back. I know it's not the monitor, it's the video card not sending a signal to it and somehow also locking up the mouse (keyboard is ok). This happened after installing s/w for a hp s20 photo scanner, but i don't think that is the problem because on my other bootable drive (in the same box) the problem is there but not as bad. It might be making it worse, but i don't think it is that easy. I'm also not sure it is the card itself, though it is the card that is not sending the video signal to the monitor.

Mouse Cursor Regulary Drifts And Shoots Randomly Across The Screen

Any optical mice that perform flawlessly? Im currently on my fourth optical mouse. Ive sent back three and am about to send back this new one which is a packard bell optical mouse. With all four ive experienced the same problems. The cursor regulary drifts and shoots randomly across the screen making it impossible to play games and internet surfing is touch and go as i often click pop-ups by accident. I thought these problems only affected wireless mice but it seems both types suffer. My brother also has an optical mouse and gets the same problems. This just isnt on when will a company address this problem. The market has been almost completely taken over. Ive tried fowarding my opinians to logitech, microsoft and packard bell and all have ignored me.

Usb Ball Mouse Cursor Randomly Jump Around The Screen

Basically, what's happening is, from time to time (usually every minute or so) my cursor will randomly jump around and hug the sides of my computer screen. I can move it vertically, but any attempt to move it any other way either doesn't work or causes it to jump around again. It's just recently started doing this (about two or three hours ago; i was using photoshop with my graphics tablet), and it even moves around when my mouse is unplugged or disabled, and disconnecting from the internet changes nothing. I've tried updating my drivers, even uninstalling them and letting windows reinstall the basics ones. I have uninstalled my tablet's drivers as well. Both avg and spybot turned up blank when i had them run scans, and i've gone through every option in the mouse menus, adjusting speed, precision, etc.computer is a desktop. Windows vista home premium 32bit, usb ball mouse.

Usb Laser Mouse Cursor Whizz On Upper Right Of Screen

I recently purchased a new computer for a decent amount of cash but the mouse is acting weird. When you pick up a laser mouse the laser generally dims so that the cursor doesnt' freak. But my laser doesnt dim so if i pick it up to move it the cursor whizzes to the upper right of the screen. This is very annoying for gaming and generally everything else, however, the mouse works fine in my laptop. Im not exactly sure of the brand but im thinking logitech keyboard/mouse combo. It says aspire on it, if thats means anything.

Computer Hang After Click Restart

I just got finished reassembling my computer after doing an overhaul and it is doing some weird stuff. I thought it might be the fact that i have 8gb of memory installed and i am still running 32bit vista ultimate (i am about to install windows 7 64bit ultimate)

The computer would hang after i clicked restart. The computer would go to the shutdown screen and then it would go blank, but the computer would not reboot. The odd thing is that it would shutdown just fine, but it would not restart. I just installed an update that it wanted to do at shutdown and it seems to be restarting now. However, now it is giving me a cpu freq. Of 1. 33ghz and fsb of 1333. I have not changed any cpu settings in the bios and intel speed step is disabled. It should be at 2. 66ghz for a q9450, which is what it was when it would not restart on its own. Any ideas?

Overhaul of asus rampage formula motherboard x48
1) installed intel x-25m 160gb g2 drive (secondary drive right now & empty)
2) installed 4gb of ram (brings total to 8gb installed)
3) installed heatsink backplate for ocz vendetta 2
4) unmounted and remounted processor
5) installed new psu corsair hx750 professional series
