Monitor randomly scrolling?!?
Authored by: shadowvine on Feb 06, '08 06:44:05AM

Hi, I am not so familiar with MAC to dig thru this, but this morning I came into my office, boot up my MAC, and find my display screen scrolling madly about whenever I move my mouse. I tried swapping out the keyboard and mouse, nothing, I turned off the zoom while holding feature under mouse (I changed it to only move when mouse reaches the edge though and that helped a bit), but nothing seems to keep it from scrolling. Is there another way to stop this? It never did it before, I wasnt even aware it could do this.

Oh, and I am not on dual monitors. :) But I must say this is getting rather frustrating! I feel like I am on a boat or something, things sliding this way and that....

Hi. Dont know it may help, but I had the same problem after installing the latest 10.4.11 update. The display was wobbling and moving around as I touched the mouse. By chance I zoomed out all the way using the CTRL+ScrollDown command (using the double-fingers movement on the new trackpads), and the problem was fixed... display back to normal!

I just ran into the same problem and tried the ctrl scroll down as you suggested; it also resolved the problem (OS 10.4.11).

Does anyone know what may have caused the initial problem of the screen moving as the mouse moved?

Thanks for the tip!
