Hi all, I'm new to these forums so don't bash.
I recently have been having problems with my mouse. It is a HP N3+ Optical mouse PS/2 WIRED. I have a HP Pavilion a255c. It was working perfectly fine before until this.
So, here's the story. I was playing Battlefield 2 on my brothers computer and he had a ball mouse, I didn't like how the ball mouse worked, so, I unplugged my Optical Mouse (While my computer was on) and plugged it in my brothers computer. When I plugged it in, it was crazy! It jumped all over the screen! I thought it didn't work on his computer for some reason, so, I just plugged it back in my own computer. When I plugged it back in, it did the same thing! It jumped all over the screen and I didn't even touch it. I wiped the mouse lens clean and tried different surfaces. I tried my mouse on other computers and it did the same thing as on mine. I tried 3 different computers and still no luck, it jumps all over the place. I tried other mice on my computer and they work perfectly fine, so that rules out a problem with a driver or the PS/2 port. I doubt, I have viruses too because I think my computer is pretty safe. I followed a guide from Microsoft that shows me how to uninstall mouse drivers and key registries, and then reinstall them but that didn't work. I think I've tried everything; I might have to buy a new mouse.
