    Hello everyone, This is my first time posting on this forum so if I make a mistake i'm sorry. The problem started 2 weeks after I got a used computer from my uncle.My mouse started acting crazy. I can be just browsing the internet and then my mouse starts jumping all over the screen as soon as I touch the touchpad or during it. I've reinstall windows 3 times and used various anti-virus, anti-malware,etc trying to detect if it's a virus but they all come back negative!. For every time I reinstall windows, the mouse doesn't act up for a while and then two days later BAM!! it's jumping around the screen again. I know that this is symptoms of someone hacking me so I am wondering if there is a way to remove the hacker. Here are some other symptoms I encounter.

    1. My graphics driver and mouse driver is uninstalled after a restart sometimes.
    2. Windows lags up and shuts down.
    3.After a mouse attack or weird encounter, my network card completely stop working and the light blinks on and off.

    I have ALSO noticed that Computrace is installed in bios and I have read that it is vulnerable to hackers and I was wondering if theirs any BIOS mods for me :( . I have also noticed that after flashing BIOS my computer started acting up.

    Laptop:
    Lenovo 3000 N200

    THX IN ADVANCE. :D:D

    Use official MSDN iso to re-install to exclude the installmedium is re-installing it.

    Simple test to see if it's something from "outside" disconnect lan/wifi and see if the symptons re-appear.

    To me it sounds like your uncle gave you a defective laptop ;):)

    Are you doing a clean install of windows..as in...deleting the partitions..and recreating new ones? Then format it? If so you almost can't be hacked. I'd say you have hardware issues..try another mouse??? Did you install the latest drivers for your network...video...audio..etc?

    I've tired the MDSN iso some time ago and it didn't help :(. I delete every single partition and format the whole HHD for each reinstall. I know it isn't a hardware issue because the mouse and graphics work perfectly for a short amount of time. I also know it's a hacker because I hear drivers being uninstalled and installed everyday. I have all the latest drivers for all my devices.

    Does the computer have any physical signs of damage? Perhaps it was dropped. Pull the bottom off, check the fans and vents. (Be sure have a PDF of the owners/user manual and follow it's instructions. The last thing you want is extra parts after re-assembly).

    I've checked the fans and vents and nothing. There isn'\t any type of damage on the laptops. Perfect working screen,mouse,lights,all the screws are in place, and all readers and scanners work

    Boot from a linux (Mint/Ubuntu, etc.) live USB. You can run linux without installing or changing anything on your laptop. If the hardware is broken, it will be broken on any OS you run.

    There isn't any Win 10 driver I know of for the Geforce Go 7300 so it'll be using the Default Windows graphics drivers. Sounds more like it'd be a hardware problem from what You posted. Have You checked both the HDD and RAM ?

    • You have a very interesting knowledge base
    • You do not have any virus or hacking
    • Error is probably in some other place

    Your system motherboard is possibly having issues. You need to check it properly for defects.

    jumping mouse pointer may not indicate a hack. it may indicate that your mouse is broken or your mouse pad is bad or the surface that mouse sits is bad. or your mainboard may have a problem. this is possibly a hardware fault.

    Seen this before. I'm going to say it's a bad mouse. Specially since you re-installed Windows.

    You have just a bad trackpad.

    Replace it or disable it and use an external pointing device,
