Windows 7: Baffling intermittent mouse lag problem Razer Abyssus

Baffling intermittent mouse lag problem Razer Abyssus

I have searched help forums far and wide without finding a solution to this problem, or even a similar description. Every 10 minutes or so, my mouse will lag for 4-7 seconds, and then correct itself. What I mean by lag is that it will suddenly appear to me moving more slowly than before, but will still follow whatever direction I am currently moving my mouse. Clicks done during the lag will happen at the position the pointer was at when I clicked them, but a second or so after I clicked. During the lag, the movement of the cursor appears stuttered and jittery, as if I am dropping frames, yet any action on the screen continues without any such interruption. At the end of the lag, the cursor suddenly jumps to a new location, presumably where it should have ended up after all the inputs I gave it during the lag. My mouse is a Razer Abyssus, sampling at 1000 Hz and set to 3500 dpi. It is a wired mouse on a USB port.
The lag does not occur in sync with any obvious system traffic, and does not affect any other activity, such as keyboard input or talking over Ventrilo or Mumble. It can happen just as easily, and last just as long while navigating webpages as when I'm playing a CPU intensive game. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing drivers, changing the USB port, and shutting down multiple background tasks such as iTunes and Adobe checking for automatic updates. It started about a month ago, and I don't recall installing anything that may have caused it.
Ideas... GO! :D

Lower the Polling/sampling rate to 500hz and see if that effects anything.

Welcome to SF Balefire,
I used to have this issue with a wireless mouse but for a usb mouse a couple of things spring to mind.
1) Try a different usb port
2) Try a different/better mouse pad
3) Keep the optical lens clean with a q-tip and air
4) Keep the usb cord from kinking and see if it has any issues in the cable by having one person move the mouse and you go inch by inch and slightly flex the cable back and forth.

I did try a different USB port. I have cleaned the lens, and I checked the cable just in case, but it's not that. It's not like the computer stops receiving input from my mouse, it still jumps to the final position after the lag occurs, and I can click as much as I want during the lag. Right now I'm trying out the first suggestion and lowering the polling rate. It only has two settings so I dropped it to 125 Hz. I'll let you know if that fixes it, but I really want to use the full capability of the mouse. It worked fine for 2 years+.

I was originally using the newest Razer driver. I tried re-installling it, and that didn't fix it, so I uninstalled it and updated the windows mouse drivers, and that didn't fix it either. Also, setting the polling rate to 125 Hz didn't fix the problem, though the lag oddly seems less pronounced. I am going to try switching in another mouse to see if the problem persists.
