My mouse is exhibiting strange behavior in Virtualbox. It randomly exits the virtual pc and jumps to (0,0) on my primary monitor. Is there anyway to stop this?


I determined it wasn't synergy's fault but something weird happening with my multi-monitor setup. The mouse only seems to work correctly on my primary monitor.

Oh I'm running Windows 7 64bit – Kurru Mar 29 '11 at 18:39
Out of curiosity, by (0,0) do you mean the upper left corner (like Java), or the center of the screen (like math)? And what OS is on the VM? – cutrightjm Mar 29 '12 at 12:37
yea (0,0) means upper left and OS is xp – Kurru Mar 29 '12 at 17:31
Have you tried what I suggested? – cutrightjm Mar 29 '12 at 20:42
Have not had a chance. Dont use Virtual Box all that often. Also consider today is the 1 year anniversary of this question! – Kurru Mar 29 '12 at 21:01

I at least found this page, which I believe describes the problem you are talking about. Apparently it is not new.. Does this only happen to you when you move towards the bottom of the screen?

I believe this could fix your problem, which basically says to try disabling 'Mouse Integration'.
