The mouse cursor worked fine when I was on the NOOBS interface with the OS selection. After I installed Raspbian and went into the GUI of Raspbian the cursor's starting location is in the center of the screen but when I move the mouse it seemingly teleported to the bottom of the screen and could not be brought back up.

    have you tried a different mouse?

  • No I have not. I was just wondering why it happened. It seemed as if the GUI was like a second Window that the mouse could not go into. I was able to drag the cursor across horizontally along the bottom, but each time I attempted to drag it upwards the cursor would teleport back.

  • This almost sounds like the mouse battery is dying or something is taking a lot of RAM on your Pi. Are you running any software that takes a lot of RAM? You can run top to see if anything is. Commented Mar 23, 2014 at 20:11
  • Power issue with the mouse. As lenik suggested... try another mouse. I had a similar issue with cheap mouse.
