First let me apologise for posting this under Graphics cards, but I thought I might get more relevant responses here.
Below are my system specs:
CPU - AMD FX-8120 OC'd to 4.2Ghz
GPU - Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 OC'd
RAM - 16Gb Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz
SSD - Intel 520 series 180Gb (Boot drive)
HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1Tb 7,200Rpm
Mobo - Asus m5a78l-m/usb3
OS Windows 8 64-bit
PSU - Corsair CX600 600W
Heres my problem:
When using my PC, I experience regular mouse lag, as in when i move the mouse, the curser on screen lags out and jumps/skips over the screen. I have no idea what is wrong. I have updated all my drivers, and uninstalled the old ones, so there are none conflicting. I have also replaced parts of my system and the mouse lag continues. The bits I have replaced are:
SSD (Boot drive)
OS (Upgraded from W7 to W8)
I am soon going to be upgrading my CPU and Mobo, so I can try and see of this will fix the problem, as this would mean that I have replaced all major parts of my PC except from the RAM.
Please can someone suggest a fix? Or could it be my CPU/Mobo/RAM?
Thanks for your time.
P.S. To the intel fanboys out there, Please dont start saying that it is because I have an AMD CPU. I dont deny Intel are better, but AMD also make excellent CPU's
There could be some interference. Make sure the usb receiver is in front of the case if possible. I have had many problems with mouse lag on wireless mice. Try to keep the receiver away from other usb accesories. Do you have a wireless keyboard as well? I had problems with my mouse when it was too close to the wireless keyboard.
No, It started happening about a month later. I had not replaced any hardware by this time, or done any overclocking.
Thats a good point actually, I currently have the reciever plugged into the vack of my PC. I'll try moving it when I get back. I have no other Wireless things in my room apart from the wifi hub, obviously. But thats well away from the PC. Really? the keyboard can interfere? Well i never. I'll try taking the batteries out of the keyboard as well before I move the reciever and see if that helps.
Last night I tied moving the reciever to the front of my PC, and for now it seems to have solved the problem. However it is too soon to tell as sometimes I wont get mouse lag for a couple of days. I'll update this reply on Friday if I can.
