After relocating Mouse is slow to track

December 12, 2010 at 12:11:06
Specs: Windows 7
I have a windows 7 home prem. desktop, I recently moved to a different area of the country (don't know how relevant this is) and had to plug in an old ps2 ball mouse (through usb connector). I now have my full setup, mouse, keyboard all wireless set up.
My problem is this:
When i puugged in my ball mouse my mouse was tracking very slow, i figgured it was just the old mouse, but i bought a new wireless mouse (installed the drivers too) and it maintained the problem. I also found my old (original wireless) mouse and I have the same issue. I went to properties and tried making it faster but that just makes the mouse go super fast but still with a bit of a lag.
I have 8 gigs ram I3 processor and am currently running 3-20% CPU and 43% ram with core temps of about 32-34 C.

Ok I for some reason relized that it seems to only happen on my HDMI Tv that is set up, everything else works and responds fine when on that screen. Movies play full speed, games work well (other than It hard to aim with mouse lag) But on my second screen (VGA) everything including the mouse works fine. Any ideas?

PS: GeForce GT 240 1024 dedicated g memory
PSs: This is the same set up i have had for a year, the only difference is the brand of TV.

If this appears only on your HDMI TV but your regular monitor shows normal mouse function then the time lag is in your video card when it translates to HDMI. Unless your card does not have HDMI port and you are using a DVI/HDMI adapter and the problem is then either the adapter itself, or if you have a dual DVI card, maybe you used the other DVI plug for the adapter last time without lag but the one you are using now may not as directly support the HDMI adapter (just a possibility). If not, check your video card settings and also try updating your video card driver.

Figured out what the problem is: The tv i have now is a 120 hrtz, my video card seems to top out at 60. once i took the 120 setting off it worked fine. Thanks for the reply.

PS: suggestion from LeoLaporte @ twit.tv
