So I have been experiencing some issues with mouse lag in games. Simply put the mouse, as it moves from left to right, appears to lag my game and at some point I can even freeze the frame of my game with the mouse movement. However, when I don't move the mouse at all I get my standard high frame rate
My mouse is a wired Microsoft Sidewinder and I have tried using the mouse with and without its driver still with the problem. Originally the problem was just with Steam powered games such as Team Fortress 2 or Garry's Mod however now the problem has extended to other games not even connected to Steam in any way.
I have Service Pack 3 installed and am running on XP Home Edition (32bit) and my GPU is a NVidia 280. [DxDiag Attaced]
