Windows 7: Cursor moves to the bottom-right

Windows 7
Cursor moves to the bottom-right

Hi everyone!

I downloaded version 7100 a few weeks ago. I love this operating system and would like to stick with it, but I can't fix the cursor problem no matter what I do. It periodically moves to the right bottom of the screen on it's own.

Here are the things I've tried so far:
- turned off "enhance mouse movement" under control panel (suggested on a few forums online)
- turned off laptop trackpad, in case it is reacting to some movement
- switched between between 3 USB ports
- switched to another mouse
- switched mouse pads (dark, non-shiny surface)
- disconnected the mouse from USB port and used the laptop track pad instead
- turned the mouse upside down (such that the little red light was no longer activated, but the cursor still moved on it's own)
- turned off the option to write on screen (I have a tablet laptop)
- checked for new drivers, reinstalled drivers.

I am thinking this may be a software, not mouse problem. The strange thing is, the problem seems to be less frequent for a little bit after I do one of the things above, but then comes back full swing again in a little bit.

Has anyone had this problem before? I would appreciate any suggestions!


P.S. Here is my computer model, just in case: HP tx2610us

What if you disable the touchpad in the BIOS and connect a mouse. What happens then?

Sorry - I am a complete newbie. Does this have something to do with somehow entering the BIOS settings and disabling the trackpad, just as I start up the computer? I tried to find where I could change these settings (F11, F2, etc), but couldn't figure it out.

Yes. It's in the BIOS. Try Del. or F10.. It's supposed to tell you the key on startup to enter the BIOS.

Yep, I checked there, but my system does not let me change anything in BIOS (besides language, password, a few other things).

I completely uninstalled (rather than updating) all of the "human interface devices" from the Device Manager. In then automatically found them after restarting. So far, so good!!
