Mouse Slow and Jerky in Virtual PC 2007 running on Vista home premium

I'm using Vista Home Premium and Virtual PC 2007 on a brand new HP G70-460US laptop.  But the problem is that the mouse pointer inside VPC environment is slow and jerky.  How can I solve this problem?  Thanks.  I don't have this problem on my old Toshiba laptop running XP!

Hi PJZMAN,

 

Thank you for posting on the forums.

 

You can try deleting and reinstalling the driver for your mouse. You might also want to check and see if there’s an update driver for it.  Another thing that you could try is clean booting your machine.

 

Follow the steps below to place your computer in “clean boot” 

·         Click the Start orb on your Desktop

·         Type msconfig in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.


If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue. 

·         On the General tab, click Selective Startup.

·         Under Selective Startup, click to clear the Load Startup Items check box

·         Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable All

·         Click OK

When you are prompted, click Restart.  Is your mouse working better?

If this does resolve the issue, then see the following Microsoft Article on “Clean boot” and the section “How to determine what is causing the problem” to determine which program or service maybe causing the issue.

How to set your computer back, to boot normal:

·         Click the Start orb on your Desktop

·         In the Start Search box. Type msconfig, and then press ENTER.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue. 
Click the General tab. 

·         Click Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services, and then click OK

·         When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.

 

Hope this will fix it for you. Please post back and let us know.
