Erratic mouse in Windows 10

After a hard drive crash I replaced my hard drive and updated to W10. I use a Logitech wireless mouse. At random times the cursor jumps time the top middle of the screen. I downloaded and updated the driver, and tried a different wireless mouse with no changes. I've seen people complain of similar random jumps, so not sure what direction to go to solve the problem. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Answer
Erratic Mouse

I am having the same problem. I have a Dell Inspiron laptop with a Logitech wireless mouse. I've changed all mouse settings and then changed them back again. I disabled the touchpad and enabled it again. I removed the mouse and only used the touchpad. Still have the same result. Ran the virus scan--nothing. Removed and reinstalled the mouse driver--again, nothing. The cursor jumps (mostly to the top middle), resizes windows, closes windows. It is a struggle while typing this! VERY frustrated!

Logitech mouse with Dell laptop

This is interesting... I, too, have a Dell laptop, which I've had for a year or more. I prefer a mouse to a touchpad, and really like the features (side buttons) on Logitech. The Dell runs W10, and I've NEVER had this problem with it. I have to wonder if it's the particular version of W10, as I only just had to upgrade after the HD crash. I even synched my other mouse with the desktop, and still have that problem, so I ruled out the 510 mouse as being the problem. Yes, I also switched the USB ports and the receivers, too.

I guess we can BOTH hope that someone else has come up with an answer.
