Alright.
Today I was doing normal activities in my laptop until my mouse started acting weird. It's a wireless mouse. So the thing is that it started moving the other way around: when I move the mouse left-right then the cursor moves up-down. When I move the mouse up-down then the cursor moves left-right. It's a strange problem, but if anyone can help, would be awesome! Thanks!

it sounds like something in ease of access settings,
what version of windows are you running?
what model mouse are you using?

I'm running Windows 8.1 and the mouse model is linked here: trust.com/18519
It's a cheap one yeah, but if it's able to fix the issue then why not, if not, I'll buy a new one.

Are you yet sure where to find this kind of setting? Because I'd rather try settings first than a new profile :D.
If that won't help I'll just buy a new one, but it would be awesome if it was fixable.

Mess with the mouse setting gs, or reset to default

When I've had this issue it's the USB hub or KMS. If I unplug the mouse receiver and unplug the hub/KMS and then plug them back in (mouse receiver last) that usually solves it. If you have a KMS make sure to unplug all of the systems that are connected to USB so there is nothing powering the KMS otherwise it will not reset.
