We've encountered thousands of potential Windows problems and solutions, but the bad mouse is one of the worst. Symptoms may include logging, jumping, or slowing down your mouse. Here are some of the things you can do to help ease the way for mouse problems:

1. Check your hardware

Before checking or changing any settings on your laptop or PC, be sure to check any hardware components that may be causing this problem. If you are using a wireless mouse, take a look at the mouse cable, USB port or the rest of the battery charge.

2. Check the surface of your mouse

If the hardware looks right, check the surface on which the mouse is resting. Your desk may have a scratch or uneven surface. When you use the mouse pad, it can wear out and give your mouse a wrong idea of ​​its movement.

3. The mouse is not clean

We also choose to use a wired mouse to eliminate some potential problems.

5. Disconnect other devices

Your problem may be due to a joystick, graphics tablet or other input device connected to your laptop or PC. Some of them can even control the cursor, so this can cause conflict between them while fighting for power.

You can disconnect and reconnect all devices at once to find out which device is causing the problem or you can temporarily disable them when you don't need them.
