The problem is the cursor in any given list goes through the list very fast. ...as if someone is pressing the up, down , right, or left buttons and not letting off. I can move the mouse arrow fine; however, when I go to click on "OK" or "Cancel" , for example, something is making it jump back and forth.
First thing I tried... I looked to see if the arrow buttons were stuck. On this laptop, it's hard to see. But, I think they are not stuck.
Second thing I tried... Under "Mouse Properties" I have disable the mouse on the laptop and rebooted. I now use a wireless USB mouse on it. The problem didn't go away.
I'm not sure what to do next. I can't think of it being a software issue. I had just reformatted about a week before this started happening. I want to do everything I can short of taking it apart. ...because it looks like I would have to take it apart from the bottom!!! Another clue is that it makes this horrible beeping while booting up. It wont stop until windows comes on.
I also tried to go in the bios and turn off the mouse that was before I found it in windows. I had no luck finding it. It didn't matter because in was so hard to navigate. ...it being a list and the highlight moving about at a high speed.
I sure hope I could get some help on this thing before I tear into it.
Thanks for any help.
Update: If I press and hold the "scroll" key, everything is fine and seems to work normal.
