    Hello, please help me with this rather annoying problem;
    Running Windows XP Home.

    My mouse position seems to keep leaping to random positions of the screen at random intervals. It has been working fine for months and months, in fact- i have never come across this problem, then I leave my PC on for about 5 hours unattended, and it begins.

    It's currently not so bad, but please help!

    -PKE

    Please help- it's getting worse!

    I've scanned for viruses and spyware- nothing
    I've restarted my computer - nothing
    I've removed the mouse - nothing

    The last thing I remember doing before this problem occurred was plug in my new Psp Lite via USB. Please help asap!

    Does the cursor still jump when the mouse itself isn't plugged in?

    Yes it did- And I found out why!

    After many hours of investigating my software, processes and drivers- i discovered that the movement of the mouse changed whenever i performed an action on my plugged in PSP. I thought that this was very odd.

    10 minutes of experimental PSP-remote-ing later, and I had suddenly realised- my PSP power adapter was resting on a pile of papers and crap, underneath which was my graphics tablet! The current in the PSP charger was affecting the tablet!

    Thanks for trying to help anyway- I was seriously perplexed :p
