I've had this set for several years now, but the keyboard is out of the picture. The reason being that a certain 2 year old spilled soda all over it. Well, back to the point. At random times of the day, the mouse pointer will get stuck in a little area of the sreen. No matter how much I move the mouse, the pointer will not move more than 1/4 of an inch and move back. I've moved the receiver everywhere and back, but to no avail. Is it possible that it's going bad? It's an optical mouse and it's an fairly new condition except the "skates" need replacing and the battery cover is missing.

Doesn't sound good. Do you have another mouse you could try? Might be that the RF receiver or transmitter is dying.

Sorry I took so long to reply. I got it... there was literally a layer of dust on the lens. I took a q-tip and dipped it in alcohol, then rubbed off the dust. The problem was gone, but another problem arose. I really need to clean the surface that I use for my mouse. I would ask to delete this post, but it could come in handy for other people with the same problem. :D
