I do a lot of gaming. I installed Skyrim because my wife is addicted to it. Skyrim kept giving me issues so one of the steps I took was updating the Bios. After a while with no improvement I decided to just upgrade a few parts on my setup to see if that solved it. My current specs are:
970A-G45 MSI motherboard current BIOS V. 1.11
Evga geforce 960 gtx 2gb GPU
Amd eight-core 4.0ghz CPU
6 GB 1600 MHz hyperx blue ram
300 GB 7200rpm HDD
700 watt modular PSU
Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit

After the upgrades Skyrim runs like a dream, the only problem now is that occasionally when I move the mouse nothing happens... then a second or two later the input I put in seems to register and the cursor (or character if I'm gaming) moves. Also I want to note that this happens in all of the games I play (Combat Arms, CS:GO, Minecraft, Skyrim,..ect)  as well as my desktop. While it is lagging the screen doesn't freeze or anything of that nature its strictly the mouse. I read that my BIOS update could be the culprit. So far I've tried live update which says my BIOS is up to date so there's nothing there. I've downloaded the same bios I'm using and put it on a full reformatted (fat32) pen drive (extracted contents of downloaded bios file into the pen drive) and booted into the bios and tried using m-flash. M-flash has the option to select file to update bios with. I click that option and it says to insert media...even though the pen drive is inserted (I've tried this in all of my USB ports). Legacy USB support is Enabled. There is an .exe file I have tried running in the extracted bios file but it tells me its not compatible with my version of windows. Ideally I want to keep the same bios BC any newer versions are meant for windows 8 and any older versions won't support that beast of a CPU. So basically I'm needing help "re-flashing" with the same BIOS. any ideas?

Thanks to those who read my post. Before this thread was split I got a suggestion to try a different mouse. I don't know why that didn't dawn on me but it was a great idea. Before I was using a sort of cheap wireless 2.4ghz gear head mouse. I switched to a stock HP wired mouse and gamed for probably 5 hours without any lag. I hope this info helps someone. Another matter would be why my wireless mouse started lagging but to be honest I've had that mouse forever and was probably just getting too old to keep up.
