Windows 7: MouseScrolling

MouseScrolling

Since I installed Win7 on my HP dx2480, my mouse has been giving jerky movements, keeps scrolling up and down itself. I searched forums, reinstalled drivers, replaced the mouse, cleaned it, rebooted, restored the system to when the mouse was working properly. The mouse works perfectly well on my Dell Inspirion 15. However, all mouse give these erratic movements on my PC. I have a dual boot with 7 and Vista Home Premium, and I'm getting the same problem.
Please don't give me stupi suggestions like rebooting, changing the USB port or anything. I've tried all this ****.

Thanks in advance.

How can you say the advice is stupid before even hearing it? Furthermore, you haven't really detailed anything that you have tried, you haven't given us any way that you can 100% reproduce the problem, or anything like that - is it a wired mouse, wireless, Bluetooth, trackball, who is the manufacturer, have you tried another mouse, does this mouse do it on other machines.....

I understand that you're frustrated, but you should try to take a deep breath and troubleshoot this a lot more before you say it is in Windows 7.

FWIW, I have had my trackball (wireless Logitech Trackman Wheel Optical) as well as a couple of machines with touchpads all of a sudden start moving the mouse randomly on my machines in the past - ever since Windows 2000. The way I am usually able to end it is to try to take control of the mouse using violent, jerky motions from screen edge to screen edge rapidly 3-5 times. However, sometimes I have had issues where it never stops for like 10 minutes, and sometimes it ends in like 2 seconds - very very random.

I'd check the mouse out first and foremost - especially using a can of compressed air to try to blow air into (and thus through and out of) the mouse - it is entirely possible that some dust bunnies have accumulated inside and are partially obstructing the sensors inside and are fooling the sensor into thinking that the mouse is in motion when it fact it is not....

It's an HP wired mouse. Ialready said it's working fine on my Dell lappy. I tried using a wired Logitech with my PC. It's doing the same thing. And it doesn't stop at ALL. I left the PC for an hour, and during the hour, it was giving the erratic, jerky movements without pause.

Thanks for the advice. I replaced the mouse again, and now it's working fine. Though I still don't know what really happened.
