A. Try with another mouse
One of the simplest ways to identify a problem is to try using another mouse. If the same problem also occurs, most likely the problem is not with your mouse.
B. Check the mouse battery
A low battery will cause the mouse to lack power and may cause the mouse to behave strangely, although lags are more common in this situation.
C. Try another USB Port
Check to see if there is a problem with the USB port to which your mouse or wireless adapter is attached.
Try a different USB port to see if it resolves the issue. It is possible that a loose connection or a bad port can cause problems with the mouse.
D. Clean the mouse sensor
The mouse sensor is a red light that shines at the bottom of the mouse. When a few dust particles or hair gets in the way, it can cause your mouse to act strangely.
Simply wipe the sensor with a dry cloth and blow it a few times for extra safety before trying it again. Sometimes the particles that cause problems with the sensor are too small to see, but may still be present.
E. Use a flat, mouse-friendly surface
Make sure the surface where you are using the mouse is flat and mouse-friendly. Dirt can accumulate on the mouse pad and interfere with optical eye tracking. Clean the mouse pad from annoying dirt.
F. Mouse driver update
Because the driver sets how the mouse interacts with the operating system, if the driver is corrupted, the mouse will not work properly. Check if you have the latest drivers from your mouse manufacturer.
