The Misbehaving Mouse

By: Manjula

Many people using Pcs and laptops face a lot of problems with their systems software and hardware. One such problem is the misbehaving mouse. The mouse pointer moves to some other corner of the screen when you are about to click. It becomes more frustrating when the whole window or program closes when you are working on some thing important. Sometimes a double click is done for a single click. These types of defects are more common.

The most common possibilities are

&bullConnection to the computer may be loose.

&bullThere may be dust deposits

&bullThe mouse driver software might have corrupted.( This is a very rare scenario )

&bullThe mouse surface may not be uniform.

Solutions for misbehavior:

&bullMake sure the connections are not loose. These faults are more common in USB mouse drives.

&bullRegular cleaning and dust removal is required.

&bullReinstalling the mouse driver software if recommended.

&bullProper mouse pads can be used or the mouse surfaces should be uniform.

An optical mouse may not work properly on glass surfaces. While cleaning, make sure you use a dry cotton cloth to take the dirt away. If you use an optical mouse, you can try blowing dry air on the lens, a couple of times.

If you would have installed any software recently, chances are high that this software might conflict with the mouse drive software and make it not to work properly. I came across one such problem when I put in a graphic card in my system. I reinstalled the driver software right away. This fixed the problem. So the next time your mouse misbehaves try correcting it yourself.
