Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Sometimes, the cursor moves itself to the edges of the screen. I have to lift the mouse and put it down and then it works again.

I have tried cleaning the sensor at the bottom; the only problem left is the mouse mat( unnamed; cheapo one and rather small). Could the mat causes this kind of problem? Is Razer mat required in order to use this mouse?

Flame stripes don't make a generic computer peripheral a gaming device. This is a question for Super User if anything, and better yet Razer support. Voting to close. –  kotekzot Jan 21 '13 at 15:12
    
have you tried another surface? The table? A peice of paper? –  Keltari Jan 21 '13 at 15:42
    
@Keltari thanks. I tried a white paper sheet and it works properly. i guess it's the mousepad-related issue after all. –  Tuan Anh Tran Jan 22 '13 at 13:24

A Razer mat is not required, but recommended. The Death Adder is an optical mouse so you'll want a mat that's geared toward optical mice. (as opposed to laser)

In the past, the Razer Lachesis had a "jumping" problem which may or may not apply to the Death Adder.

Follow the link below for the suggestions from Razer support.
