Floating Mouse Cursor
Has anyone else had a problem with your mouse cursor moving erratically on its own and then freezing completely for about a minute (with no way to un-freeze it)?. Everything is fine for an hour or more and then it goes berserk (usually after I have been moving the mouse rapidly)

I am using a BT mouse (and KB) from Dell (Logitech) and have had everything replaced incl the BT receiver. It didn't fix the problem.

I have had multiple Dell support chats and calls but they can't fix it. One of them claimed it is a known Vista problem and that MS is working on it.

I even did a complete re-install of Vista Ultimate (which took a couple of days to backup, reload all the drivers, apps, etc) but the problem continues.

Someone on another forum suggested it might be the video driver (NVIDEA GeForce 8800 GT) but I couldn't find anything on their forum. Nor could I find anything on MS's site.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thx.

Re: Floating Mouse Cursor
Do you have Dell system? I've got cursor problems as well and my comp is Dell XPS420...
I used to have high opinion about Dells... Did they lower standard with prices fall?

Yes I have a Dell system - an XPS 420!

Looks like we may be in the boat

Re: Floating Mouse Cursor
I had the same problem and spent days troubleshooting it. I changed the processor and that cured it. The machine is running slow and that causes the mouse to jump around - it's a performance issue.
