Hello, I'm hoping someone on this forum can help me out. I use Photoshop CS4 and I've run into a problem that seems to only make itself prominent on the program. It seems that my mouse is clicking anywhere between 5 to God knows how many pixels away from where I want it to click. This makes it hard to use all of the tools that require clicking and dragging, such as the brushes, erasers, shapes, move tool, etc. In fact, the move tool will jump my image right out of the canvas if I do so much as drag three pixels downwards. Here's what working with the brush tools resembles:
My mouse is a Synaptics Touchpad v6.3 on a PS/2 Port. I tried updating the drivers a couple of hours ago, but to no avail. I've even tried plugging a different mouse in, but the problem was still there. I think the problem is a Photoshop-related incident, seeing as I haven't experienced trouble maneuvering the mouse anywhere else. Then again, I just noticed that, when I try to drag folder windows by the edges, I have to move my cursor a few pixels away as well. This is so frustrating! I opened up a program somewhat similar to Photoshop called Paint.net, and everything, seemingly, works just fine there. I really hope someone can help me out here; I'm absolutely losing my mind over this!
Thanks in advance!
P.S.: In case you need the info, I run Windows Vista Home Edition 32-bit on an Acer Extensa 5420 (a model notorious for blacking out at inopportune times) with an AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-58 processor.
