INSANELY annoying "mouse lag" with two monitors attached..

    I know this is an old thread, but for archival purposes...

    No solution, just more corroboration. Terrible, terrible lag, to the point where the computer is unusable.

    I have this problem with a dongle-less Microsoft Bluetooth Sculpt mouse in Windows 7 x64 running on ASUS m/b, Intel video, with two monitors configured as one large virtual monitor; but the lag is far more severe on the left (main) than on the right monitor, and it's more severe with some programs (e.g. Word, Outlook) than with others (e.g. Chrome). Went back to a USB-dongle Logitech, which also is not perfect but has nothing like the lag of the Bluetooth-radio mouse.

    The problem is noticeably worse when using WiFi, so I've disabled that.

    I didn't have the same scenario as yours but I did have terrible mouse lag and jitter. My solution was to put the mouse dongle on end of a USB extension cable and move it away from the computer case. My cable was about 12 to 18 inches long. Not sure if it will work in your case but maybe worth a try.

To all those who keep on spouting the talking point that "touch" is the future of computing... In fact is clearly is NOT. At least for the next half century is isn't. As far as we can tell NOTHING is more efficient than the traditional keyboard and mouse for entering data, it is indisputable. ...
