    When my mouse is just idling, the cursor sometimes drifts around...


    This is really annoying when I am going to click buttons and when it just drifts around as I type.

    I have a Razer DeathAdder.

    If it's wireless it could be that it's running out of batteries.

    You've probably got a hair in the opening where the laser is. Either that or a buildup of dust.

    This is a brand new mouse, and it's a Razer (def. not wireless :thumbup:smile:

    I've cleaned/checked all surfaces multiple times.

    Have you tried updating your mouse's firmware? [Click here to view the link]

    I have the razer lachesis and had a similar problem and a firmware update fixed it.

    I've updated to the most recent firmware and drivers provided by Razer.

    You could try reinstalling the drivers try a few versions of them see if one works, If that fails you could try contacting razer support or return your mouse it could just be defective.

    Contact Razer support... Yeah, whenever I try to get to an area to contact them, I get redirected to their FAQ pages. <_<

    When I installed the new firmware update I was forced to install the new driver as well.

    Trying old drivers won't work since I've updated the firmware; which can only work on the newest drivers.

    I'm just going to return it... :thumbdown:
