Windows 7 RTM 64-bit mouse freezes/stutters multiple times per minute

Hi all,

I've installed the Windows 7 Enterprise RTM (my company has software assurance) on one of our machines, dual booting with XP.  The Windows 7 install is totally clean, but it has a nagging issue of mouse pointer freezing/stuttering that is driving me absolutely nuts! Basically, every 10-15 seconds, the mouse pointer just freezes in place for about a second. The computer itself doesn't seem to be locking up but the mouse pointer will then suddenly jump back about where it should have been if it didn't freeze. (i.e., it seems to be lagging behind responding to the mouse but catches up, it doesn't continue from where it was).

It seems like the problem is getting worse the more drivers and such that I setup, I was hoping once I got all my sound/video drivers in it would get better.

Does anyone have any ideas and/or performance monitoring tips? Nothing seems to be spiking in task manager. And it all works fine in XP.

System is:
Asus P5WD2 motherboard
Pentium D 940 (3.4, dual core)
ATI Radeon HD4850 video card
Asus Xonar D2X sound card
Adaptec 29320 SCSI + Atlas 15K drive (Win XP boot drive) and Plextor SCSI CD burner
Other SATA HDs including the Win 7 installed drive
Razer Copperhead mouse

Thanks for any tips
David. F

Your reply suggests that you know of a solution to this problem that seems to be vexing many.  Perhaps you can be more specific, if indeed you do know of a solution to this problem?

I would be sure you have Win 7 drivers for the ATI video, either from Windows Update, or the ATI site. Aero doesn't seem to be working right. You might get some infor from the command 'perfmon /res' , or looking at the Action Center in Control Panel.

same exact problem here.  i disabled the onboard nvidia network controllers and replaced them with an intel gig pci card with no luck.  nothing special about cpu or network resource usage either.

performance is perfectly fine inside of 3d applications, but is terrible on the desktop.  locks up every 10 seconds or so with or without areo.

this seems to be a VERY widespread problem across many chipsets and video cards.. i'd love a solution because i'm about to just go back to windows xp where this problem does not exist.

i've read someone theorizing about windows 7's 2d rendering being pretty awful but nobody had any solution there either.

Nikachu,
I was thinking that the problem is just related to usb mouses.
I don´t have this issue with ps2 mouses.

So i guess, theres nothing to do with image rendering.
Maybe is especific with HID controler on 7.
