    First of all thanks for posting everyone the more information we can find the better chance we will have of fixing this. I have noticed a recent trend that a lot of people that have this issue have a Razor mouse of some sort. At least 4 people on this thread have one. Is there anyone that does not have a razor mouse or at one time used one that has this issue? I have tried using a different mouse but the problem remains so it could be that the razor software or driver does something to corrupt the system. I was thinking of using a different mouse and purging all drivers and software from razor and see if that has an effect.

    Ok so I tried replacing both my keyboard and my mouse but it had no effect. I also tried replacing my mouse with a PS/2 mouse (I had to search pretty hard to find one that actually works with windows 8.1) and the issue is STILL present with a PS/2 mouse...... I am going to pull both my video cards at this point and try and run without then just to see if they are the issue somehow.

    hi, I just found this somewhere else:
    Keyboard / Mouse lag constant beeping Windows 7 and 8 Fix!! ~ EvonsDesigns

    I'm not sure this will help but I have tried it and so far it has helped me. I will report if it turns out it really hasn't.

    I found this, Keyboard shortcuts - Windows Help

    which works for windows 7 but also applies to 8. It's rather obvious but it turns out that if you accidentally hold certain keys such as the right shift or bloq num for some seconds, these new windows shortcuts may change your mouse settings.

    now I have no idea why a combination of these would cause a mouse to lag and beep, but fixing this and being careful not to hold crazy keys has worked for me so far.

    edit: for the record, it happened to me while using just the trackpad on a notebook, so I figure it has little to do with USB port.

    Thanks for chiming in, Sadly I have already tried that to no avail When issue happens to me I am never actually typing on the keyboard in any way.

    Having suffered from this issue for the better part of a year, I thought I'd share what all I know about this in hopes it helps the search for a solution:

    1) When resuming a logged in session locally that was previously in RDP, any movement of the mouse causes interrupt "beeps" if moved within a few seconds after login.
    2) Waiting a full minute before moving the mouse seems to mitigate the issue somewhat, though not fully.
    3) I've tested with both AMD and NVIDIA GPU's.
    4) The issue may be related to running Client Hyper-V on the PC.
    5) The issue may be related to multiple mice / keyboards on the PC.
    6) The issue may be related to Logitech mice / keyboards.
    7) The simplest fix is to log out via keyboard strokes (i.e. control-alt-delete, down arrow to logout).

    Thanks.

    Thanks for posting that is some good info. I had a logitech keyboard too (both of mine are) so I pulled out an old dell keyboard and removed the drivers/software for any logitech product. Still having the issue though A lot of other people seem to have logitech keyboard but to be fair they are a really common keyboard manufacturer. The logging out via keyboard is my go to move to resolve it when it pops up but it kills any gaming I can do because it is annoying to have to completely restart the game.

    I may have a solution


    Ladies and Gentlemen I think I may have fixed my issue..... But I am not going to post it here..... J/K

    I have a secondary 22 inch monitor using an HDMI to DVI cable, I had never touched it throughout all the troubleshooting mostly because it had been like that for a long time. I had even been able to confirm the issue with just the 22 inch plugged in and my 4k monitor uplugged.

    Well finally I decided to remove the cable plugging in my 22 inch and boom no more issues. Several days of working from home with nothing and several nights of 4k gaming with no issues. I plug the HDMI to DVI cable back in and boom issues return. So for some reason a bad cable is causing some sort of short or issue which is literally like the last thing I would suspect. I got a different HDMI to DVI cable and plugged it in and am still issue free. I will report back if anything changes but I would suggest everyone that has this issue to try and change out all their monitor cables and see if that has an effect.

    I think that's very possibly linked to your issue with the display driver. Contrary to popular belief, the latest driver doesn't always mean the best driver to use. Try an older one, perhaps? Not too old, just a version or two before; whichever works, really. Remember to completely remove the current driver, restart, and then install the new one. (be sure to have a backup of the driver installer you currently have installed, in-case it's truly not the driver.

    Best of luck.


    Well, dammit. Hah. Guess you solved it; didn't notice. Nice one! Had no idea a cable could do that.

    Yeah me either, I did the rip out my display drivers song and dance about a dozen times and even did a complete re-install of windows before figuring it out.
