Here's the problem: I own a Logitech MX1000 and when I'm in windows, the mouse likes to spaz and all of a sudden the pointer is at the top left of the screen. The frequency of this varies and sometimes can be in intervals of 5 seconds. This is extremely annoying when I'm trying to work. Anyone have any idea why this is happening? I'm not playing on a reflective surface. I'm playing on a black matte mousepad.

What kind of batteries do you have in the mouse? If they are cheapies get some duracell's and try them. Also try a different mouse pad like a solid color one the laser might be re-acting to the surface texture of the mouse pad.

do you have a cordless phone

PS the mx1000 is not for gaming and has a bad review on line as it has lag and poor response times when gaming.

some cordless phones will have run on the same signal like with my logitech wireless game controller, when the phone is in use, the controller doesnt work right until i press the channel button on the phone.

Since it is wireless it either has batteries like AA ro a built in battery and I did not think that finding this out was that important besides the batteries no matter what could be the problem. If the mouse is wireless how is it going to get its power?

i personally hate wireless mice. they use hard to get Li-ion batteries which basically fail after 700-1000 charges. and they arent like NiMH batteries with the Li-ion, one day the battery can run fine and the next day it wont even charge.

if someone near you has a wireless mouse then you may run into problems with the signal.

the wireless problems werent fixed until the G7 wireless mice from logitech.

if you want you can use a parabolic reflector around the transmitter base that connects to the usb (it works great on my router, might also work on the wireless mouse.

Yeah, this mouse is pretty stupid. I'm going to replace it. Any suggestions?
Currently looking at: Logitech G7, MX518, and RAZER Copperhead

Yeah, it looks good, but I'm used to having the two buttons on the side with my MX1000 and the only other new mouse that has that is the MX518..

I have the same mouse and it works ok. Where is the charger/transmitter at because it says to keep it away from the monitor.
On my older Logitech I had batterys but keep the transmitter right under the monitor.

On the MX1000 it is about 2 feet away from the monitor.

Also they say it works best on a white mousepad or white paper.
