Why does my wireless mouse not work properly?

I have recently obtained a HP wireless mouse that came with the purchase of a laptop and while I first tested the hardware, it was fine. The cursor moved sharply, but after a month has passed, the cursor started to act strange: when I steer the mouse, it would struggle to move and might move into another direction. I thought there must be something wrong with the batteries, however, the batteries aren’t worn off. Time after time, it would behave strangely, then normally.

What could be causing this?
