Lately I've been having this problem where my mouse cursor in windows and game feel floaty and off. For example, in game it feels like my aim is trying to catch up to my mouse. I a little delay, but its still affects me and my motivation to play games. the thing is that the delay is only in the mouse, not the keyboard.
I've tried things like:
changing mice, changing dp cables( tried using a 1.4 dp on a 144 to see if it would help. Currently using the 1.4 cable to.) redownload nvidia drivers, enhanced precision is off(always turn it off), mark c didn't really feel different
Can someone help?
EDIT: it also feels, in game, like my aim is trying to catch up to my mouse
Do you only have this issue when gaming? is there a noticeable lag when you use your mouse on just the desktop? Are you using any software to make macros for your mouse?
yeah, its also on windows desktop. Currently not using any software for mouse, but i have the latest drivers for it
You mentioned that you're using different mice, have you tried plugging them into different USB ports?
Could you share your full system specs?
Also, what monitor are you using?
yeah, ive switch the usb ports and same thing happened.
MOBO: asus rog strix z390-e
My monitor is a 144hz aoc monitor, but ive tried different monitors and dp cables and same thing.
ram: its corsair, 16gb
I'd recommend you open Win + X menu by pressing Windows Key + X. Now select Device Manager from the list.
When Device Manager opens, locate your mouse driver and double click it.
Go to the Driver tab and click on the roll back driver button if available or uninstall the driver. You can then unplug the device and plug in the device. This should reset the mouse, and then it should return to normal. I'd also recommend restarting your computer.
Let us know if this solves the issue for you.
i've tried uninstalling mouse drivers. Its brand new just got it to try and fix the problem but it didnt work.
it also feels, in game, like my aim is trying to catch up to my mouse
Is this lag only noticeable in games? Every game, or certain games? Are the games running at 144Hz? Do you have multiple monitors running at different refresh rates? Have you tested with and without FreeSync/GSync enabled? Is VSync off?
its both windows and every game. games running at 144hz. one monitor, and i have tested g sync, but always turn it off. vsync is always turned off when i go to settings
@TSMikeW @LandShark Figure anything out?
Sorry for the delay!
I've seen some posts that claim that NVIDIA High Definition Audio and other audio drivers can sometimes cause these issues. If you’re using an NVIDIA card you can try the following steps:
Sometimes mouse lag problems can be related to its frequency. This issue usually affects wireless mice, and if your mouse is lagging, you might be able to solve the problem by adjusting its frequency.
To do that, open your mouse configuration software and change its frequency from 500 to 250Hz. After doing that, your mouse will start working normally.
Let us know if these solve the issue for that.
ok ill try that
@LandShark do i have to keep GeForce experience uninstalled or can I reinstall it?
You can reinstall it, but if Geforce Experience is causing this, it's likely the overlay. Disable the overlay in the settings.
that didn't help. @TSMikeW @LandShark
anything else? IM really trying to fix this problem. @TSMikeW @LandShark
