    Do you have a USB mouse connected, or just the mouse pad included with the laptop?

    Check up underneath the mouse in the little lit cavity for a stray cat hair.

    Don't laugh - it will cause the behaviour you have just described. :)

    It might be that the mouse is going.
    Get a new one and test it out.
    The one i would go for (and i do have this) is the Logitech MX Revolution Rechargeable mouse, it is the best. :)

    are you talking about the mouse getting old. If you are it is time to replace it with a new one.

    and you can connect a USB Mouse or try updating the drivers.

    You might need to see if there are any updates for your computer from HP's website. Another thing why the mouse is moving is because your finger(s) is just slightly touching the mouse pad. Is there a setting where you can adjust the sensitivity of the pad in question?.

    no fix yet but the source has something to do with the nvida dual monitor drivers or something so i've been told. keep looking for a driver update from nvida or windows
    ( i've also been told it has something to do with touch screen but other people without t/c and other brands having same issues )

    The problem has to do with your power supply. Simply unplug your laptop and it stops. I don't know of a more permanent solution but now that we know the cause maybe someone else can point us to the right direction

    Hi Magadan, thank you for that tip, it solves the problem on my pc, though of course only temporarily. I also have a tx2000 hp pavilion, os win 7 x64.

    I don't remember having this problem when I still had Vista.

    Hi jdr280,

    I did more searching on the net and found that the underlying problem is static energy interference. They said to discharge the laptop static power by powering it down, unplugging it and removing the battery, finally hold the power button down for 60secs or more. Place back the battery and power up the laptop as normal. This did not work for me!

    The other solution that worked for me is to tilt the monitor away from the keypad of the laptop when the cursor is behaving erratic. It is a bit uncomfortable to work with but it works. After a while u can tilt it back to your liking and the problem stays away.

    Enjoy

    Thank you, at least now I know what the source is and how to handle the symptoms.

    The conclusion is that I will never buy an HP notebook again. This notebook seemed so promising but there are too many annoying little defects.

    Thank you every one who posted on this annoying curser issue. I was having the same problem. I have been unplugging the laptop now and it works a dream!
    One thing through would using the laptop on an antistatic mat work to stop the issue from happening? If so ill go out and buy one but don?t have one to test with!

    The laptop will still over heat still and randomly switch off which is frustrating! So if anyone knows how I can prevent that let me know! At the moment I?m using a belkin cushy which helps a little may go back to the chunky battery that tilts the machine to help the air circulate that little bit more!

    Once again big thank you

    I was having this really annoying problem on my HP TX2000 laptop. The cursor would instantly jump to the lower right corner of the screen. The solution of unplugging the power supply works. However, I swapped out the power supply for a new one and the problem is gone. So it's a faulty power supply.

    In my case, it may be because I have multiple HP laptops and accidentally interchanged the power supplies. While the plug fits and the laptop battery charges with a mismatched power supply, maybe the differences between the laptops is enough to cause this problem.
