Question

Laptop makes mouse laggy

I currently own a toshiba Satellite p755-s1520 which works perfectly other than the Laptops LCD display not working, i use it VIA HDMI to 47 in TV. The problem is i cant get my mice to work properly on the laptop.
I have updated the drivers, messed with the resolution, uninstalled the drivers and even tried several different mice and it still the same result. I have also factory wiped my pc and still nothing. The mouse doesnt stutter or dissapear its just very imprecise and slow. Example: in order to get from one side of the screen to the other i have to pick my mouse up off the matt and bring it back to the bottom corner just so that i can finish getting the cursor to the other side, it trails behind and what not.

Posting a video of the issue so you guys have a better understanding. PLEASE for the love of GOD someone help me i have been dealing with this for over a year and no one seems to care to even reply to my postings on here or anywhere

heres what it looks like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttiI212Em8Q

I think I know why.

Since the laptop is in need of repair my bet is that folk want the laptop repaired before they tackle mouse performance. That's my bet.

I don't see it

What I see is someone forgot to change mouse settings to speed it up.

Are you trying to help?

Im sorry im not sure if you are trying to be helpful or sarcastic but can you elaborate?
By the way im not a complete computer amateur, i have tried all of the settings regarding the mouse and actual DPI settings.... so please tell me what im missing.

I watched it again

The sensitivity or pointer speed is set too low. I only see lag when you moved it quickly back and forth, but that could happen if the acceleration setting was off.

Open Device Manager and check the Mouse area in that, see if there are any yellow exclamation marks. See if the mouse reported there is the one you are using. If this is a wifi mouse, then try some new batteries in it. As for movement, it seems normal to me, other than being slow on acceleration and requiring too much hand movement to go across the screen.

OKay

I am using a Logitech g502 (wired). There are not exclamation marks under device manager, also the speeds dont affect what the mouse is doing. It may look normal to you but its not. The mouse trails behind and makes it hard to click precisely without struggling to get the cursor to match the hand movement. I dont know how else to explain it other than that its floaty and not a speed problem. If youre a gamer maybe this will make more sense; When i play games i have to move the cursor back and forth until i hit my mark.

and you've tried other mice

does device manager show a USB wheel mouse for setting? Tried in another USB plug?

This is it?!

You need to reinstall the software for it.

Thats it

Yep thats the mouse and I have tried it trhough different ports. Also device manager shows me i have the synaptics pad(touch pad) and a HID compliant Mouse. Also the Mouse did not come with any type of special software. Just a reminder i have used other mice and its the same problem so this is not an issue of correct software from mouse to computer.

No software?!
" Also the Mouse did not come with any type of special software. "

A mouse with that much ability to change settings from the mouse itself, and no software? I've had much lesser mice with software provided.

So, I just had to go look;

"You can customize the three onboard profiles of the 502—surface tuning, button programming, and tracking
behavior—using the Logitech Gaming Software. Download this free software and learn how to customize the G502
at www.logitech.com/support/g502"

I'll leave the rest of the reading to you. There's a setup pdf there and some software.
