Windows 10 Input lag problem!

Hello Windows,

Since march/april 2018, I got a very annoying problem. I explain : I got a mouse lag (delay, latency) on my desktop and even in games. To be more precise, I'm having a small but very annoying delay when I move my mouse. 

Here's what I did :

Reinstalled windows several times, 3-4

Updated all my drivers

Uninstalled my GPU nvidia drivers and reinstalled it

Bought a complete new PC

Bought a new mouse

Bought a new carpet

Bought a new monitor (from a 60Hz to a 144Hz)

Checked for windows updated

Checked for process on the background

Disabled mouse ehancement

Disable inactive windows mouse

Also disabled Cortana

Did a clean boot

And I booted my PC without my GPU also

Also booted my pc with ram by ram

So now I can confirm that the issue isn't hardware related.

After all of thoses step, I still can't believe that I'm stuck with this very annoying issue.

At first I thought It was a virus : I reinstalled windows 10, even bought a new HDD

Then I tought it was my processor or gpu : bought a more powerful cpu and gpu

Then I thought it was a power supply issue : bought a new and more powerfull PSU (from 500W to 750W)

Then I thought my monitor was causing the problem : bought a new monitor with a higher refresh rate

And finally I thought that my mouse was broken : bought  a new gaming mouse (G403) + a new carpet for her

I'm very lost, and this issue ruin my gaming experience since now 5-6 month.

I came to the windows forum because now, since I changed everything, I'm convinced that it has to do with windows 10.

The windows 10 version 1803 came out when my issue started, so it might not be a coincidence.

So, I'm very open to every answer...



CPU : i5-8600K 3.6GHz 6core

RAM : 16GB RAM DDR4 3000Hz

PSU : 750W CoolerMaster Bronze 80+ 

Monitor : Acer 144Hz (with display port)

Keyboard : Logitech K120
