Default Laser Mouse

I have a cordless laser mouse, which is sometimes so jumpy that it is hard to put it on a link. It works fine on some surfaces but on a lot of the it is extremely jumpy. One of the surfaces it is jumpy on is a mouse pad. Can someone tell me why this is happening and/or how to or what to use to fix it?

I figured out I probably need to buy a smooth mousepad, I will try a piece of paper though.
