My mouse jumps around the screen when i move it quickly

Whenever i move my mouse quickly, it hops around the screen. When i move my mouse slowly it works fine. I've tried reinstalling all mouse drivers, using another mouse (same problem) I've tested the mouse on a different pc, there was no problem. I have tried a different mousepad, that didn't help either.

I've never had this problem before, and i haven't changed anything. It just happend from ine day to the other

I can't find a solution for the issue, so i hope someone here can help

  1. What mouse do you use?, is it a ball mouse?, is it wireless? are you using usb 1.0, 2.0, or 3.0? This probably happens because it is old or sensitivity is to much (probably not), your mouse might be going to fast for the drivers and everything that runs it is to slow. (if you have a wireless mouse then that means the receiver is to slow and/or broken.

    I use a SteelSeries Kana v2. It is a new mouse (and it's good) And as i said, i have never experienced anything like it. I'm using a USB 2.0 port.
  3. Well its defiantly not slow because its a wired mouse. And it says high speed so it might just be moving to fast. Try lowering sensitivity until it stops. Let me know how that works.

    Just tried it, didn't work. I've tried disabling the "SteelSeries Engine" and i still have the problem.
  5. Your already diagnosed the issue. The mouse itself works on other systems fine, and no matter what 'mouse' you plug into this PC it does the same thing. This is due to the ACCELERATION settings. Control Panel > Hardware > Devices > Mouse then go tab by tab you want to find either MOTION (usually under Pointer Options tab) or ACCELERATION . Just slide it down. In some cases this maybe controlled by the included Mouse Software you installed, simply remove this and reboot and should also work.
