Can the pad mess up a laser mouse?
Oct 6, 2011

Hi,

We have a new mouse pad that we got as a souvenir from our European vacation this summer. Since we got it we notice that the cursor sometimes hesitates and moves erratically across the screen. I did the usual things: replace the battery and reconnect the mouse to the receiver etc but it still acts up now and then. I also thought it might be the computer being very busy for a short period but that does not seem to be it. We removed the pad and are using the mouse directly on the table and it seems to be fine.

Can the pad affect the mouse? If so, how do I know what pads are compatible?

Thanks,
Bob Schoner
