Ok, there is a big difference between a laser and an optical mouse. It sounds like yours is an optical, correct? If so, it doesn't like the surface you're currently using and can't take uniform pictures of the landscape... try different surfaces or buy an optical mousepad.
no the mouse i have is a laser mouse its got the red laser on the bottom and the laser is clean and every thing it just acts very jumpy when im using a mouse pad with it.....whens its just on my desk with no mouse pad it works fine. so what im saying do i need a different mouse pad? the one i got is some cheap solid black one
laser mice don't need mouse pads, it should work even if you lift it above the desk if I read the hype correctly. They are even supposed to work though glass...just get one that is shiny if you must have one.
