    Control Panel > Mouse > Hardware > Properties > Advanced Settings


    Adjust your Sample Rate to 200 reports / second

    It depends on your mouse make/drivers ... I get 9 tabs of options (not 1 properties).

    I believe it has to be a PS/2 Mouse.

    I currently have 3 mice attached to my rig :D

    I doubt I can adjust settings w/o fubarring the whole system..

    /me did turn sample rate for wireless mouse to minimum though...

    ya, I think this oprion is only available for PS/2 mice. I checked both my computers (one has PS/2, one has USB). The option is on the PS/2 mouse and not in the USB mouse options.

    Btw, its the same mouse. (Logitech Optical Mouse)

    Yeah, seems to be a PS/2-only option. The touchpad on my laptop is connected via a PS/2 interface, and it does have the sampling rate option. I remember setting it to 200 samples/sec when I first got the laptop itself.
    On the other hand, the external mouse that I sometimes plug-in via USB (Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical) doesn't have the option.
