    Hiya,

    Ok so I have the following problem. Sometimes the cursor will suddenly just start jumping across the screen compared to smooth movement. At first I though it was just a battery problem but so far I have replaced the batteries twice. So I updated my graphics drivers, and any other OS updates & hardware firmware. But it still happens.

    I've noticed that there's also suddenly a massive delay on the network. E.g. Normal is around 10 - 20ms Jumps to 500+ms.

    Graphics seems to unaffected as animations run normally. I thought it could then be hard drive activity, but I'm using an SSD.

    Wireless or Bluetooth mouse? If so, and you are also using Wi-Fi be aware that there have been a few (very few) instances of some kind of interference between the two. Keep the radio that communicates with the mouse as far as possible from the Wi-Fi adapter.

    Hi!

    Thanks for the reply, I think it worked. Since I thought Windows 8 had all the necessary drivers I didn't think twice about checking that. Since I'm using an Asus Crosshair V Formula, I downloaded all the drivers that are compatible with my version of Windows 8 (64-bit) and installed them. I also updated the firmware for the USB controller and so far I've not had any problem. It's early days yet though.

    Can I keep Venae, with posts merged. The other account could then be closed? Thanks
