Some other ideas you might try:
• Connect the mouse to your computer by using a different USB port or PS2 port. To do this, use one of the following methods:
• If the USB cable for your mouse is currently connected to a USB hub, disconnect the device from the hub, and then connect it to a USB port on your computer.
• If your device is already connected to a USB port on your computer, try to connect the device to a different USB port, if one is available.
• If your device is connected to a PS/2 port on your computer, make sure that the USB plug for your mouse is connected to the green USB-to-PS/2 adaptor and that this adaptor is plugged into the mouse PS/2 port on your computer. The mouse PS/2 port on your computer may also be green. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the mouse PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with your computer.
• If you have to make changes to your configuration, shut off your computer, make the changes, and then restart your computer. If your mouse has both USB and PS/2 connections, try using the other type of connection. For example, if you are using the USB port, try connecting the mouse to the PS/2 connection instead.
• For optical mouse devices, try using a different mouse surface or mouse pad. Test the mouse pointer by using a sheet of white paper instead of a mouse pad.
• Reduce the graphics hardware acceleration setting in Microsoft Windows. To do this, follow these steps:
Note Because there are several versions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.
1. Right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.
2. Click the Settings tab, and then click Advanced.
3. Click the Troubleshoot tab.
4. Move the Hardware Acceleration slider until it is one notch to the right of None. This setting disables all but the basic accelerations.
5. Click OK two times.
