Hey guys, I was wondering if you could help me with a problem. The current mouse I am using is the Logitech G400 gaming mouse, however, when I use it, my cursor keeps jumping around the screen. It's getting really frustrating and it's pretty much unusable. I was wondering if anyone had any input as how to fix the problem. I don't know if its just a matter of getting a good mouse pad or if the mouse itself is just defective. I researched and saw that other Logitech mice have had similar problems however it says that the G400 should not have this issue.

Thanks for the help guys.

I would suggest getting a mousepad, are you using it on a rough surface?

Only thing I can think of is the possibility of debris being lodged inside the mouse compartment, or blocking the optical sensor area.

This. I had the same jittery problem and looked at the laser lens area and found a little hair that got stuck in there. Once I got it out, all my problems went away.

Check if there's dust interfering with the sensor. Blow some compressed air/clean the lens with some alcohol. If that's not the problem, treat yourself to a QcK+ or QcK Heavy.

Pubes and mice don't mix.

When that happened to my old Logitech G5, I just called up customer support and they sent me a brand new G500. I love Logitech.

Logitech does have really good customer support from my experience. They aren't condescending during the problem identification portion of it and are certainly inclined to send you a new product.
