My mouse lags slightly in operating system but barley enough to really cause a problem but in games its enough to become really irritating. Its just a complete lack of 'smoothness' rather than freezing up of any sort.

It always used to be perfect so its not a case of the games demands being too much for the laptop.

I've tried formatting with XP but that didn't solve the problem, currently I'm back in windows 7.

Tried a different mouse and experienced the same, I've tried with and without drivers as well - same problem.

As far as I can tell the touch pad isn't what it should be either.

Naturally this has left me completely confused!

any ideas?

Check the bios to see if you've dropped it to usb 1 mode.
Check the polling rate in the OS.

bizarrely changing the desktop res down a notch fixed it
