    Mouse Pointer Sticking

    Every 5/10 minutes, my mouse pointer keeps sticking, for around 1 second, then jumps to where it should have been. It's almost as if the pointer isn't actually sticking but the screen isn't updating. This started happening after upgrading to Windows 10.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi, welcome to tenforums- thanks for completing your specs fully.
    There are a number of threads on this.
    1. It may be related to a wireless mouse.

    Can you advise what sort you are using, and try a simple wired one
    2. It may be high CPU use (please advise your idle CPU use from the task manager).
    3. It may be that your graphics driver hasn't been downloaded and installed.
    4. Are you using more than 1 monitor?

    1. Mouse is wired and works fine on another system.
    2. CPU usage is 1%
    3. I just went to device manager and click nVidia GeForce and pressed update drivers, it is downloading some software now so will see if that does the trick.

    Ok, possibilities- drivers.
    1. An effect related to your audio driver. (See end of link, below)
    2. Mouse: can you downgrade the mouse driver. That's the easier of the two.

    (Can you try your mouse on a USB2 port if on a USB3 port now)
    3. Can you try using the graphics driver version for Win 8.

    (Note, any driver different in version to what Win 10 thinks you should have will be overwritten before long). There is a tutorial on how to keep your driver).
