Why is my Logitech mouse moving erratically on my Latitude LM? - Technical Tip - 165970




Logitech® mouse erratic movement on a Latitude™ LM resolution.

The Logitech driver disk has added a line to the WIN.INI file:


LOAD=C:\MOUSE\WINBUTTON.EXE


This line causes the erratic behavior of the mouse pointer. This behavior is normal with this driver installed; however, it may cause the LM'' s touchpad to fail on "drag and drop" operations. In addition, once it starts selecting text in a document, it will not be able to stop to perform a copy or paste.

Remove that particular statement from the "LOAD=" line, or, if that is the only statement on the "LOAD=" line, place a ";" (remark) in front of the entire "LOAD=" line (e.g. ";LOAD=..."). Restart the system and everything should work fine.

If you install one of the newer Logitech PS/2 mice on your LM system, the Logitech driver disk installs correctly with Windows® 9x, and everything appears to work properly. However, you may begin to notice that the mouse pointer will "jump" to various spots
on the screen (such as "OK" buttons).
