It's a bit hard to describe & doesn't seem to be triggered by anything in particular. Sometimes it can occur several times a day or only a couple per week. Whether I'm gaming or on YouTube my mouse can start to lag. E.G: I'm moving the mouse around when suddenly the once fluid movement begins to stutter horribly. Sometimes a system restart appears to fix this but in all honestly it seems completely irrelevant since the lag/stutter can completely cease on it's own regardless of what I do or don't try. My Display Drivers are an up-to-date fresh install thanks to DDU. That I'm aware of no program or service is causing this as I've monitored all active ones during that time & nothing unusual starts. My Corsair Katar mouse drivers & CUE are up-to-date as well but I do have a suspicion that it's still somehow my GPU. Mainly because whenever I've performed a clean install, during that time of using the standard VGA graphics no such lag ever occurred.

 

1: Could this be the fault of my GPU simply being too old & low-end?

 

2: Could my CPU also be the culprit or even HDD?

 

3: What are the most common causes of mouse-lag, if that's what this is considered?

Can you try a different mouse (i.e. have another one to try, borrow one from a friend, or maybe even buy a cheap mouse)? Or try your mouse on another computer to see if the same thing happens? This would help try to eliminate whether it might be an issue with the mouse itself.

Have you tried removing the mouse drivers to see if that helps? Basically any mouse will work without the manufacturer specific drivers at least when it comes to basic functions (i.e. move, right-click, left-click, and scroll if there is a scroll wheel). The manufacturer specific drivers are there to support any extra buttons or features.

Last thing to try is to leave the Windows Task Manager open while using the computer to see if you see a spike in CPU usage when the mouse lags. You can first try the Performance tab, but also try the Process and/or Application tabs as they can show either a process or application that might be hogging the CPU.

I've tried all of that including ensuring that Windows doesn't turn my USB's off to save power. A closer examination during this lag I notice that everything is effected. Moving the mouse, clicking on something to minimize, maximize, restore or even pause a video. Is it just me or does that point more towards GPU stuttering?

Generally, if everything is effected, then it is more likely something related to the CPU as the GPU would only effect graphics.

Did you try leaving the Windows Task Manager open to see if there was a CPU spike?
