Hi need help with the new mouse I bought.

When I plugged it in the USB port of the laptop the pointer just keeps on bouncing on different areas of the screen. I can't seem to control where it should go. I've tried it on a PC but it works except when its on the laptop. Please help... I wonder if I there seems to be a conflict with the touchepad because when the USB mouse is on the touchpad occasionally acts weird too.

laptop is toshiba satellite and mouse is Creative Optical Mouse Lite (USB)


Help! :tazz:

Funny that you mention that, I recently had a similar problem when I switched the mouse (both PS/2). The problem was that the system was configured for the wrong mouse and there seems to be a difference (Microsoft vs. Logitech).

Make sure that you load the drivers for the mouse and select the mouse from the control panel.
