    Windows 8.1 update and mouse issue ???


    Hi all since updating windows to windows 8.1.1 my alienware tact x mouse keep lagging on me from time to time, i checked in device manager and everything says its working properly, but it will lag out on me for a few seconds and then work just fine. What could be doing this i did not have any issue before the update.

    Sounds driver related, do you have the most current driver installed? I had the same thing for my mouse (Logitech 500), I was using an old driver and never updated as it worked fine. After the update it didn't, installed the latest and problem solved.
