    Hi, My pointer jumps all over the place I have a wireless laptop, Vista Home
    Premier got for xmas with wireless mouse. My pointer jumps everywhere, but
    the built in mouse also jumps, is there something in the drive or laptop?
    have any clues?

    At first I thought it might be your surface that the mouse is on but then
    you said that the pad does it too. Make sure the "pointer trails" are
    disabled. go to control panel, Mouse, pointer options, and it is under
    visibility. that’s the only non-hardware thing I can think of. let me know
    if it helps,

    Does this happen if you uninstall the wireless mouse and just use the built
    in touchpad? Does it happen if you disable the touchpad and just use the
    wireless mouse?

    Hi, EPLH.

    Does your computer have voice recognition software? Is your microphone
    "live"? Such skittering can be caused by random sounds interpreted as mouse
    or keyboard input.

    Hi, I had the same problem and what I did was to slow down my mouse.
    Go to control panel and search for you mouse icon or look in hardware
    and right click you will see a speed lever just make it slower, it
    will work.

    Let me know
