Not sure if this is the right forum to post on, but here goes. :)

For the past year now, if I leave my mouse alone for a couple of minutes, it starts to move around the screen, either from left to right or from top to bottom. It's weird, since I don't even touch the mouse.

When doing this, it also makes a strange "buzzing" sound through the speakers. It's a normal mouse, not optical. I hope any of you can help me out. :tazz:

It isn't by chance a cordless mouse is it? If so try moving the receiving farther away from your monitor and speakers in that they can interfere with the functionality of the mouse.

I've never tried a different mouse actually. This is the default mouse that came with the computer when I bought it, but it has never given me any troubles. I've had the computer for 3 years now, and the mouse started troubling me about a year ago. :tazz:
