    Question Mouse moving to upper right corner on desktop machine

    I did some searching and could not find the answer I am looking for.

    I am dual booting Ubuntu 14.04 with windows 8. When in windows, no mouse issues what so ever. When I boot up in to Ubuntu about 75% of the time my mouse automatically moves to the upper right corner of my screen. I try to move the mouse and it just keeps going back there automatically I have tried multiple mice, different USB Ports and even having just a mouse plugged in and it still happens.

    This is a desktop machine and does NOT have a touch pad connected to it.

    Any thoughts?

    An old thread but probably worth looking at.

    Maybe you can make a little script to move the mouse and see whether you get any useful error messages:

    Question Mouse does not want to move from corner - desktop

    I am trying to get Ubuntu 14.04 installed on a new Lenovo Erazer x510 desktop. What is happening is, even on the live CD the mouse is in the upper right hand corner. I can move it but it just snaps back to the corner making it impossible to do anything in the GUI. It also seems to be randomly clicking also.

    I have tried different mice and this is not an issue in windows 7 / 8.1. I have tried every USB port on the machine but still nothing works. All the help I can find on the forum is for laptops with touch pads which this is not.

    Any help or ideas would be awesome.

    What is odd is this works for a little while (less than 5 minutes) then it goes back to doing the same thing...
