XPS 8300, M787C mouse, runs erratically

I have a Dell XPS 8300 system running Windows 10 64-bit, however my mouse runs erratically, very sensitive. It is a Dell M787C, and I'm not convinced that it has the correct device driver installed.

Can anyone advise or provide me a link to what the actual device driver should be and "How to.." install it?

Did you try fresh batteries? Mice are plug and play so it is not the drivers. The so called drivers--if any-- are just the software for the buttons. That model mouse is no longer available which means it is old. Buy a new mouse. Wireless and wired mice wears out after a while. Inexpensive replacements available in any store that sells electronics. You should always keep a spare around.

Here are the stats-- 

  • Requires Two AA-Batteries (Not Included)
  • Mouse P/N: M787C. M/N: M-RBV114
  • Receiver P/N: M797C. M/N: C-UAM35
  • Plug 'n Play (NO SOFTWARE REQUIRED), Works on ALL Computer Systems That Support USB Connectivity
  • Can Be Used On Desktop & Laptop/Notebook Systems That Support USB

Have you tried gently cleaning the sensor window on the bottom with a microfiber cloth?
