I have a Compaq Armada M700 notebook with Win98SE. My "Easy"Point IV eraserhead has been giving me grief, so I bought a cheap but workable mouse. However, I wasn't able to find the tool to disable the easypoint, and it still sends my cursor flying across the screen while I'm using the other mouse. It's crossed off in the Device Manager, but that didn't seem to accomplish anything. The only other option I can think of is to remove the driver, but I still would like to be able to use the piece of junk from time to time.


Bonus points if you can explain why the EasyPoint IV sends my cursor flying across the screen (usually into a corner) and, occasionally, refuses to move vertically.

You should be able to go to the mouse properties and disable it. It should give you the option to either run both or it will disable the onboard when you plugin the external.
I had a Toshiba 2535cds that did something similar. I uninstalled it in the device manager and then deleted it from the device manager and rebooted.
Go to the HP site and make sure you download the latest drivers for the device. HP now owns Compaq.
