The pointer will move on it's own without me touching the mouse, why does this happen?

Thanks

is the wire on your mouse stiff

I'm not using an optical mouse, it's a standard Dell mouse.

The wire is not stiff, very flexable.



The mouse can be perfectly still, but the pointer begins to move across the screen

maybe it's a ghost trying to contact you.

I find that if my optical mouse isn't on a completely consistant surface, the pointer will move on it's own. At work there is a crease in the desk where two parts are mated together. Happens all the time there.

i've seen that happen before. It's usually on laptops with a button/eraser head style mouse. I think (not sure) it is caused by buffer overflow on the mouse commands and you are seeing the program catchup. Could EASILY be wrong on this.

I get that all the time too on some boxes...such as this laptop...since I'm using the arm of the chair for a mouse pad.

Another possibity is in a work environment where there's a snickering coworker somewhere in the background with a wireless mouse.

I see it all the time with BS no name mice. It looks like your mouse it going out, spend $25 and get a new optical mouse.
