    Wireless mouse cursor randomly jumps around.

    I have the EW-6000 mouse Case Logic Optical Wireless Mouse 2.4 Ghz EW-6000 Black | Walgreens,It is brand new I just brought it yesterday and it came with fresh batteries with it. But my cursor randomly jump's around, Its like its drunk.

    edit: Oh, i forgot to say that i have a usb 1.0 or 1.1 port that i plugged in my mouse and it say's i need a 2.0 to make it run faster, Do i need a 2.0 USB port or can i run it on a 3.0 USB port? if i need a 3.0 or 2.0 to fix the problem then do i need to get this? http://www.amazon.com/Anker-4-Port-C...s=USB+3.0+port

    Hi TheUnknownM :)

    If your PC is limited to USB1 or USB 2, a USB3 hub will be limited by the USB port it is connected too.
    USB3 in a USB2 port will be at USB2 speed. Same with a USB2 hub in a USB1 port.

    The the mouse USB device must not be in a hub. Even a mains powered hub. I tried it myself.
    Self powered hubs can be dodgy ... self powered USB discs through a self-powered hub ... might not be recognised by WinExplorer. (It happened to me)

    I don't know if a mains powered hub will suck enough juice through a USB1 port to be effective. I doubt it.

    Any mouse does not like very shiny surfaces or uneven surfaces (my desk has knotty pine and the mouse went weird until I used a mouse mat)

    Hope this helps :)
