Okay, for some odd reason my mouse "jumps" on it's own. It very rarely happens when i'm surfing the net and such. But when I put on a full screen game such as CounterStrike it starts to jump. So therefore I get called a hacker because of the my mouse is acting. Ussually it happens when I hold down the shitft key, but it does happen all the time when I'm not holding it down.

I use my old mouse and everything works perfect so it's sompin up with this mouse.

some mouse like logitech require driver to works better performance. try find the driver for your mouse , install it and try it out. if still the things still wont work fine, i suggest u change another mouse. Different mouse have different dpi or sensitivity.

p.s is your old mouse a ball mouse or an optical mouse? if its a ball mouse and your new one is optical mouse, try use a mouse pad.

Ball mice often move on the screen by themselves after dirt and such has built up on the rollers, I heard that can cause it anyways. I'm not sure how though but it may be something worth looking at.

Well, u can try to open the ball and clean up the rollers with some cotton and alcohol..

If this doesn't help it may be inside damage which cannot be repaired..

P.S. Buy a new optical mouse.. :tazz:
