For each power mode there are two sub modes:
- On battery
- On charger

Open Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options and change to other mode, (for example, from Balanced to Performance)
See what happens.

I am using high performance all the time. Also it isnt the mouse because it works normally on another laptop.

Did you try another mode (Balanced)?

7 Pro x64, 10 Pro x64

That sounds like a ground issue to the charger and causing EMI on the laptop. What model laptop and charger?
