i can't make this short and simple anymore. but pls, let me know if u have the same probs or have resolved it
bought brand new mx518. it worked fantastic out of the box. i used it for about 2 weeks, then during a game, this massive lag slowly crept into the whole experience.
slowly felt like the mouse was getting slower to respond up to the point where it took like 1-2 seconds for any key action (yes, even keyboard) to respond.
even tracking movement was slow - i would move the mouse and the movement would sluggishly happen.
attempted solution ---->
changed setpoint to os implementation
dropped dpi down to 400
tried without drivers
changed priority of drivers thru abovenormal to realtime
other notes ----->
the lag reduced but was still significant after restarting the pc. the keyboard lag was gone.
all the other attempts to resolve the mouse lag issue would bring a very short-lived reduction in lag and then it would go back to lagging; not as bad as 1-2 seconds but still very significant.
I've concluded that the problem is with my PC, since the lag is still there, but not as bad, but it still happens with 3 different mice.
probably something to do with the rendering of opengl/directx gfx, like the one guy said, cos i don't feel the lag in windows.
dunno what to do. im stumped.
pc is not over clocked
core 2 duo 6300
2 gig dual chan kit
430 watt psu
250 gig hdd IDE
radeon x850xt 256MB pci-e
no wierd shit installed, pc is running with very minimal software
cos all i do is write papers and game on it
maybe if i install some bs junk on it it will start to behave? =o
pleeeaaase let me know if you have any ideas.
