    Mouse "stuttering"

    My mouse has been "catching" ever since my last restore [yesterday]. I tried reinstalling the Intellipoint software, but that didn't seem to help. I haven't seen this before, so I have no idea what caused it or, more importantly, how to fix it.

    I do know that to have the mouse just stop and then start erratically is a pain.

    ?

    Regards,

    If it is cordless, have you checked the batteries?

    Again if it is cordless, have you moved any electronic devices closer to the PC so they might interfere with the signal?

    Have you installed other new software or hardware?

    How old is the mouse? Sometimes they go bad over time.

    Jim/Joe;

    The mouse is new as of a week ago...went from MS Natural 5000 to 7000 when the keyboard started sticking. The one difference is that the 5000 worked off of a receiver that plugged into the USB but then sat on the desk. The 7000 is completely USB plug-in contained.

    It appears the signal is being received intermittently. I'd suspect intereference from some other device.

    If the USB dongle is plugged into a USB port at the rear of the computer, a USB extension cable that allows you to position the dongle nearer the mouse might help. Also check the Microsoft hardware site for a driver update. (http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en...-keyboard-7000 )

    Jerry, I think you were/are right. I'm not certain yet whether it's the USB port itself o just the position of same, but switching around seems to fix it.

    Thanks guys,
    Chuck
