Mouse and Keyboard Acting weird

Asked By 220 points N/A Posted on -


I have a HP pavilion computer with Microsoft windows vista installed on it.

Well recently I updated my windows using system update and after that I am experiencing a problem with my mouse and keyboard.

The problem is that my cursor moves randomly on the screen in sometimes little or large jumps also I am experiencing that the text moves to random lines sometimes.

Well I know its not a hardware issue since both the keyboard and mouse were working fine before the update and started this right after it.

Please help as I need my old computer back.

It's because of the reason that your new update is not working properly it may be using more resources from your processor,and you processor is a little week, and it take times to complete the process and that why when you try to do so many work at the same time it hangs up and comes after some while.

It may be problem in your hardware also you can set hardware problem in such a way:

Go to Device Manager and then go to mouse right click on it and then click disable, now again enable it with the keyboard.

You have to do the same thing with your keyboard. What will happen with this is it will update the status of the device you are using and may does not cause of the problem you are facing.

See that all other functions are working fine because it may be the problem in your power supply.

So check it also and I hope you will find the problem and are now able to solve it.
