Hi Community,

Lack of smooth mouse movement: To sum up the issue, the cursor is not smooth and feels like it is lagging behind by a few noticeable milliseconds.

Context:
  • I have tried a number of different things suggested in online articles but to no success so far
  • In addition, this behaviour is consistent across multiple mice (in fact the current one I use is brand new)
Important info:
  • Today I happened to notice something interesting. A few days ago, I connected a second monitor to my PC (nothing fancy, just a very basic Dell monitor). However, I noticed that when I move my mouse across to the second monitor, the problem doesn't exist. It seems to only exist on monitor 1 (below)
  • It is worth noting that this issue existed before the second monitor was added but I don't recall this always being an issue
Supporting info:
  • Monitor 1: ASUS 4K (3840 x 2160) display
  • Monitor 2: Dell 1280 x 1024 display
OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
Version 10.0.17763 Build 17763
GPU RX 580
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-9900K CPU @ 3.60GHz, 3601 Mhz, 8 Core(s), 16 Logical Processor(s)

Any help is greatly appreciated

This issue is now solved. For completeness, I will include how I solved it:

I changed a setting on my monitor to enable the 60 Hz refresh rate option in 'advanced display settings'
I then changed the setting from 30 to 60.
