Two of them have the occasional "runaway" cursor problem. I've found that holding down the left mouse button for a few moments while the cursor scurries seems to satisfy it and it finally stops.
This isn't working, however, on the Armada 7790 I just got running. Don't even have to be on the internet (where most of the problem seems to be on the others). Turn the thing ON, and the cursor starts moving.
Is there something I can do to at least "tame" this thing a little bit?
Or, maybe it's a time for a complete solution?
Help? (And, ahead of time, thanks for any suggestions anyone CAN make.)

Your easy point device needs to be cleaned. Remove the rubber cap and clean all the dust and debris from the stick. I like to use a can of compressed air. Jerry

Are you sure that's it? On other machines, I just hold the left mouse button down and after a few seconds the thing begins behaving again. I've always felt it was something software related. In my 7790 it only started the other day after I upgraded it with a USB pcmcia card adapter.
Are you CERTAIN there's no driver or bios updates I need?

Also, is this download something I can save to floppy? The 7790 hasn't been set up for internet use, so it can't get the file on its own.
