mouse moves automatically to left corner of HP TouchSmart 320 PC using Windows 7

My mouse jumps to top left corner of my HP TouchSmart 320 PC using Windows 7. In the middle of typing the mouse jumps to the corner of the screen. I have installed new batteries but no change.

I need to add that I have run multiple virus scans and unchecked the "snap to" feature but it has not changed anything. Very frustrating.

Hello Insexec. I understand you are experiencing a strange mouse issues. Just to cover all of your based, I would perform a system recovery of the computer. Alternative, you could try uninstalling and reinstalling the mouse driver, or try a different mouse. However, a system recovery will become essential if the issue is not resolved with the suggestions I listed. Here is some information on how to perform a system recovery.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. I'm only here to help!

Thanks. I have tried unistalling/installing the mouse drivers and also tried a new mouse but those actions have not helped. I will try a system recovery over the weekend. Appreciate your help

A system recovery to factory setting did not resolve the issue. It just created more work to install all my programs and documents all over again.

That is interesting. Assuming the correct drivers are installed correctly, there is a potential hardware failure. I will continue to research, just to be certain.

 

One question: Has this issue occurred since you first purchased it?

It has not occurred before. I even moved that PC to another part of the house after the system restore and it did not resolve the issue. This is very frustrating.

I have now also tried a wired mouse and still no success.
