    I don't know if this will fix your problem but when I first got my optical mouse the curser was very nervous it would bounce around a little bit every once in a while. To make a long story short it turned to be the color of my mouse pad the laser would not bounce back to the mouse pickup right. I changed pads and have not had the problem since. Pretty simple but it worked for me. ;)

    Thanks
    I've a deep-dark-grey jelly mouse pad, almost the same colour as the mouse lower half (top half is white). I have read about laser-light and colour saturations. I think there is a point in what you have said.
    to which colour you changed your mouse pad to.

    The mouse pad color I have now is dark blue.
