I have a problem with my G5 laser mouse. It worked well a couple months but then I started noticing this weird cursor movement, like it was getting stuck on something. I mean, I move the cursor and then it freezes in one place for a second or few. In worst days this happens like every 30 seconds and thats really annoying... Especially when Im in game. I also noticed that sometimes when the cursor stops, my mouse speed jumps from fast to slower. You know there is these 3 stages of sensitivity which you can adjust directly from mouse, it jumps from the 3rd (highest) place to the 2nd (middle) changing the sensitivity.
I have also a logitech G11 keyboard which started shutting down along with my mouse, so someone suggested that maybe this is a power issue so I bought an USB hub with external power source, and plugged my mouse on that. I havent had any keyboard problems since but the mouse still doesnt work correctly and it even powered off by itself a couple times. I guess its not a power issue then...
All other mice work perfectly, so the problem must be on my G5. Any suggestions?
Oh... I have Windows XP by the way, with SP2.

I dont think that the wire (or cord) is broken because shouldnt the cursor disappear if it would lose connection? Thats what happened with my last mouse, but this one just hangs...
I will try the mouse on other computer and see what happens.

So the problem is either in my USB ports or something else, and Im pretty sure my USB works fine especially with this new HUB and its external power source >_
Got any more ideas ?

What operating system are you using? Windows Vista? XP? Mac OSX?
Is there any specific time it freezes up? In a video game? Just as its turning on?
How long did you try the mouse on your brother's computer? 5 minutes? 10 minutes? 1 day? 1 week? (try for at least a day)
Do you have the latest drivers?
Give us more info and we'll do our best

Im running windows xp and i have driver 4.4. I run it at 2000 dpi with a polling rate of 1000.
Another edit. Well go figure. I plug in cheapo McOptical POS and guess what? Not the same problems as ive had with the past 2 mice. I think ill use that until someone comes up with a fix.
Once again, i edit: Well, i found a temporary workarround. I just turned down the sensitivity (all the freaking way) and its not as noticeable. (noticeable being the operative word) Is there any particular reason why i was having that problem earlier other than the fact that it was up mid way? Sorry i came across as critical, but you can probably understand my frustration (especially after dealing with Razers tech support) of having 2 mice not working to the standards i have heard.
