|The mouse could be reading information in a way that the computer isn't calibrated for.|
Can you use your touch pad with the mouse plugged in?
If so, navigate through Control Panel to where you can access controls for your mouse. Click around on the tabs (i'm using a library computer away from home right now so I can't give you direct navigation) until you find Calibration. click through it with your pad, then use the mouse. It should give you a calibration slider or animation. After you activate the calibration, Move your mouse straight from left to right in a soft, fluid motion.
This should help, if not fix the problem.
P.S to Kuwese: this should be used sparingly as I have in the past completley uninstalled my mouse and had to navigate by Keyboard (which is NOT fun).
