Mouse "lag"

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I don't know if this is the best section to put this but, here goes ..

No matter the mouse I have -- wired or bluetooth / bluetooth dongle, I'm having (quite literally) mouse lag. I'll be going from one side of the screen to the other and it'll almost get stuck for a few micro seconds at random spots across the screen, then come good again.

Any ideas how to fix this? Why it's happening?

Check your CPU temp. If it is too high then maybe the heat is causing lag. When you open and close windows does it also lag?

We need more info on what your setup is. What kind of mouse is this? I've read and searched extensively into mouse lag and they range from poor range from wireless points to cpu priority the mouse program has.

I'm gonna guess HDD/SSD issues. Or bad RAM, or failing mainboard.

Also, try, with a USB mouse, using a USB-PS/2 adapter, and plugging it into your PS/2 port for the mouse. Do this while the system is off, or reboot afterwords. If it's fixed, probably a USB driver/HID issue. If not, then it's hardware-related probably.

CPU temp is well within limits - Idles at 20-30C on a i7-2600K. And it happens when idle. And no, only happens intermittently when on desktop - not actually doing anything.

As in mouse setup? Logitech MX Anywhere - USB Dongle. Computer setup is in my sig. And sadly, it happens no matter the mouse so I don't think it matters on brand of mouse or type of mouse.

It happens no matter the mouse / input unfortunately. I've tried all of the above with no luck so far. I can't see how it would be SSD related - It's a brand new SSD and everything else runs flawlessly and integrity is good on SSD, no bad sectors. It only happens on the desktop and not in game or anywhere else. Hense the oddity and my confusion -- In game, I never get it. On the desktop with no windows open, though? I get it. Weiiirrrddd.

Ok! Maybe this is the ultimate solution for your problem. Trying to install a new windows OS on your computer on a different drive such as D or E ... and seeing if the problem will go away or not?

I have been getting this frustrating mouse lag too and our setups are similar. I think I have narrowed down my problem to my wireless network adapter though. When I unplug it from the USB port the lag immediately goes away. When I plug it back in it will sporadically reoccur.

What do you mean? I get it whether the mouse is wired, unwired, bluetooth, wireless or with a dongle. I think I might have it fixed, though. I'll give it a few days and come back with my "findings" lol.

No, I mean my actual network adapter. I have a wireless USB network adapter to connect to my router in the other room and it seems to affect my computer in bad ways sometimes...

Ohhh! I see. What router? NetGear? That is inter-mer-esting! Strange, indeed, but might make some sense in an odd way - As I notice my "mouse lag" especially when I'm downloading something big. Hmm! I'll try it out.
