Windows 7: Mouse Issue - lagging

Mouse Issue - lagging

I have a standard HP laser mouse, and when i use it on a flat wood surface, some of the axis's get laggy. When i move it on the Y axis its perfect, but sometimes the X axis it does not register. Is there a common problem having to deal with the mouse? It's not the mouses fault, because on a completely flat bedsheet it works perfectly, its only on wood that this problem occurs. Anyone have help?

The woodgrain is messing up the calculation of position. I have seen the same issue of different surfaces. Glass is horrible on some mice. get a thin mousepad with no images or patterns on it and the lag will go away. If you dont like the fabric mousepads, there are hardplastic coated mousepads too.

Mouse is Lagging - Is it Hardware or the OS?
I recently restored my Win7x64 system from a previous backup. It's running fine for the most part. However all of a sudden my mouse has been locking up on me. How can I diagnose if it's a hardware or software problem? The "freeze" of movement lasts about 1-2 seconds. It's seemingly random;...
