  3. Use caned air and blow away the accumulated fuzz and lint from the led on
    the bottom of the mouse.

    The mouse that came with my recently bought HPM7750n did same on a smooth
    plastic surface. Jumped to left upper corner of screen etc. Was better on
    rougher surface but I reverted to old wheel mouse optical from previous
    computer.

    It's not a hardware fault.

    I found that the Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse also does this in Vista.
    Works fine when XP is installed but put Vista on and it jumps to an
    edge of the screen at random intervals.
