Default Mouse randomly scrolls and moves?

Greetings, I'm new here, and I'm starting off with a question already ^^.. Whenever I'm playing I game (or typing something, I just noticed here) my mouse randomly scrolls up and down, or just moves about 5 centimeter diagonnally to the right bottom of my screen. It can't be a hardware problem, as this problem occurs only when I type something ( I think it's when I press A and D, but not sure). Maybe some strange bind? I have it in each game, so it must be in Windows. Does anyone know how I can solve this problem?

Thanks, and nice to meet you, Bull

random movement of the mouse can ofthen be caused by debris over the sensor, esp a hair, so check the sensor is clean.

As for being linked to your keyboard...? What keyboard and mouse are you using?

Hmm, I don't think thats the problem, as this only happens when I type something. I have a wireless keyboard, but a wired mouse .. can't be the same channel or debris over the sensor.. My keyboard is Medion and mouse is Microsoft/Dell

have you checked in accessability options that the keyboard isnt set to move the cursor.

Sorry...that made me laugh!


Did you install any keyboard drivers? If so, try removing them.
