Hello,i need a little help here, so ive got this wired laser mouse when i use it, the cursor gets all crazy and wobbly and skippy and jumps everywhere, especially when you use it really fast. ive noticed that if you lift the mouse up like a few millimetres and use it without touching the surface, it works perfectly fine.
i dont know what i should do, is there anyway to fix the problem? thank you for your help.
 
Adjust your settings in Control panel/mouse properties
If that doesn't work uninstall the mouse drivers and restart your pc.
Let windows load the best drivers.
You don't mention the make or model so i have no idea if you've installed manufacturer driver suite.

I've had this happen when there was dust in the laser "hole" at the bottom of the mouse. Just blow the dust out and it should be fine.
