    I have a new 1 month old Toshiba laptop, Windows 7. It came with Spider Solitaire and regular Solitaire loaded on it. When I am trying to play these my mouse seems to be giving me problems. I will click and drag the card and it drops off or "bumps" into a wrong stack and I get an invalid play message. Or when I click on a card it won't get picked up so I can move it. Frequently when I click on the stack to flip a card, 2 cards will flip at the same time. This all happens frequently in each game I play. I don't know what is going on. Does anyone?

    No, it wasn't like this I don't think. I didn't play for a couple of weeks since I was busy installing Microsoft suite and Family Tree Make6r, installing a new printer and choosing my preferences, etc. Since I've started playing regularily I've noticed it. At first I thought it was the battery in my wireless mouse, I changed it and it did seem a bit better, but it kept doing it. Now I'm wondering if it could be my mouse pad. I'm not using it and it does seem better again. The play is going faster now. Can a mouse pad cause this? How would I reinstall a video card driver?
