    You're using an optical mouse, right? I think you're probably using the wrong kind of surface - either with a pattern or a colour that optical mice don't like.

    Try using a plain (preferably blue) mousemat, or even a bit of paper. Avoid red and brown.

    Are you using custom made/third partly drivers (non MS-default). If so uninstall it and use MS-default mouse driver.

    update the game, I had the same problem, look in the forums for quake 3 and it tells you there, it might not be to update the game but im pretty sure thats it, and dont worry its a comon problem for allot of people. also check all your drivers are up to date like your graphics card and direct x.

    i will go and have a look at the web site for you, just incase you are lazy

    also depends on wat mouse u ahve. newegg sells those $5 optical mice, and the reviews say that the pointer will jolt around all the time. in other words, not a good mouse for gaming. mine, i have 2. an ibm 1 that i'm keeping for later use. rite now, i'm using a free after rebate optical i got on black friday. works great with everything
