Sluggish cursor while playing older games?

There are a few older games that I own from 2001-2006 that have sluggish cursor movement. The games themselves don't lag, it's just that cursor moves... sluggish. I'm not sure how else to explain it.

I have Windows 7 64-bit, 2.6GHz Quad-core, 6GB of Ram and ATI Radeon HD 4200.

Is there a solution? There are some games that I love (i.e. Rome: Total War) that are just too irritating to play now because the cursor moves so sluggishly.

  1. I assume the cursor moves at a normal rate in Windows when you're not gaming?

    Try running older games in compatibility mode, it may help.
  2. Sensitivity.
  3. Yes it does run normally in windows and when playing contemporary and some older games. Compatibility mode doesn't do anything.

    Changing sensitivity doesn't help at all.
