I have a Toshiba S2, randomly when Windows Loads, the cursor moves to the top of the screen and stick up there, even if you try to bring it down with the the mouse.

I was thinking, either the touchpad is anyway, but does it with the little mouse on the keyboard as well or some setting is scrwed up.

Any ideas would be appreciated,

Does this happen with an external mouse plugged in?

It could either be, the one of your two mice are sticking. Which means that it will always jump up if that is where the stick is.
(Imagine putting your finger on the touchpad, of a working computer Wink, and then moving the cursor with another finger on the touchpad, let go of that finger and becuase of your original finger it will jump)

Or two, it may be viral? Try doing a scan and see what pop's up.

I have a Toshiba laptop which does a similar sounding thing.

The mouse cursor just moves itself to top of screen. I can drag it back down, but the second I stop "pulling" it down, it just goes back up the top.

Not sure how to fix it or whats causing it, but after a while I got cranky so I forced the cursor up and up, and then when I moved it down it had stopped doing it. Every time it happens I do this and it seems to fix it. This is with no external mouse plugged in BTW. Maybe something internally gets stuck in the mouse pad, and when I force it up it gets "unstuck".

one of the companies I worked for had heaps of toshiba's with this issue. You'll find it will stop if you push down on teh 'joystick' mouse controller. it seems to stick and pull up...

We usually just had the whole keyboard / mouse unit replaced which worked. But I would try disabling the device and trying to use an exernal mouse... Or pull it apart yourself and clean up around the unit.

I had a Dell that used to do that. Had to disable the nipple mouse.
