I'm using a Logitech Revolution MX mouse for a long time and of late, when there's a data transfer or download, the mouse cursor becomes sticky and doesn't move around smoothly. This happens on a Dell XPS 8700 Desktop running Windows 7 Pro.
I noticed that if I plug in a Patriot 128GB Supersonic Rage Series USB 3.0 Flash Drive With Up To 180MB/sec- PEF128GSRUSB
, and copy data to and from the drive, the cursor becomes erratic and would be normal only if the data transfer is complete and the drive is removed.
As discussed in the previous EE thread
, I tried connecting the USB drive to the front USB port while connecting the mouse' USB adapter to the top USB port.. It seemed to help but still sometimes the mouse behavior is erratic.
Tried a different mouse (Logitech M305) but the issue still persists :( I've updated the drivers and have re-installed "Logitech Setpoint"
Would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks for your time.
EDIT: Even now, when there is no data transfer, no downloads and no USB drive plugged in, the mouse cursor was erratic for few minutes.
