    I bought a microsoft model 1016 compact optical mouse to use with my acer aspire 3680-2472 notebook and vista. The notebook has an Intel celeron M processorv520 (1.6 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 1MB L2 cache), Intel graphics media accelerator 950 and 1GB DDR2. While the touchpad works properly the mouse operation causes the pointer to be very erratic in its movements. Sometimes it will move correctly others it will snap to the borders or corners. A search reveled that there has been many posts with this problem with little resolution. I can operate the notebook with the touchpad but i would prefer to use a mouse. All 3 of my desktops have xp on them and i have never experienced the disfunctional behavior that i have with vista. I hope that some resolution can be found.:confused:
