  1. You need to give us more information than that.

    What computer do you have? What software are you using with the mouse?

  4. Have you updated that driver software, or are you just using the old drivers that were on the CD?
  5. Yes I'm still Using the old Drivers, but this started just a day ago, and this problem only pops out when i'm playing Sleeping Dogs And Saints row 3rd. but tomb raider and bioshock infinity works fine with the mouse
  6. do i need to update the driver??????
  7. Try using the latest drivers
  8. Yes - it's ALWAYS reccommended to use the most modern drivers offered for all your products unless that release causes a specific problem.
  9. I updated the drivers, still not a positive outcome,still laging in Saints row and Sleeping dogs, I have 500 PSU do i need a bigger one???????
  10. i even updated the Graphic card, still not working !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. Your components themselves shouldn't have anything to do with it. Two questions:

    1) If you completely uninstall the software, how does the mouse function as just a mouse?

    2) Are you positive the lag comes from the mouse? Does it go away entirely when you use a different mouse?
  12. Yes The laging stops when i'm using another mouse
  13. and just as a mouse without drivers still lags
  14. So your mouse lags with or without drivers, but a different mouse doesn't?
  15. exactly,When i'm using a normal mouse it doesn't lagg.laggs only when using the gaming mouse, and recently i found out that the lagging is spreading,now bioshock infinite,CODMW3, games are lagging too!!!!!
  16. have you checked the polling rate of your mouse that might be the problem
