Two days and no response? Isn't there anybody out there who has seen this problem before?
Mouse, touchpad. . .whatever.
I don't know if this is an OS or a hardware problem, but I suspect OS.
I have a Dell Inspiron 4000 laptop running WinME, and recently the mouse arrow has begun to drift annoyingly. This morning it totally panicked, and ran into the upper left corner and hid there, and I couldn't coax it out. A normal reboot from the keyboard didn't fix it. An illegal reboot by holding the power button, with a scandisk session upon re-start, fixed it. For now, anyway.
Any ideas what's causing this problem and how it can be fixed properly?
