Well I use this for gaming, but I'm posting it here because it's probably a hardware problem.

I have a wireless Logitech MX Revolution (that I love!) using the Logitech SetPoint software (all updated). I've noticed that ingame, if I slowly move my mouse either right or left (using mouselook), it will not do anything until it hits a certain point, then jumps maybe 15px in the direction. Like the Wheel of Fortune, you can spin the wheel and the result will constantly be changing, but as it gets slower, the pin spends more time in one area, with no change of the result. Once the wheel has stopped, you can move it slightly without changing the area the pin is in.

Sticking to that metaphor, how can I make my mouse more accurate? Should I make the player stronger (i.e. Windows mouse sensitivity) or the wheel pin weaker (ingame sensitivity)? What can I do so my mouse doesn't jerk when slowly moving the mouse?

Oh, the game I play is Richard Garriot's Tabula Rasa, and my laptop specs are in my sig.

I had similar symptoms once. Has it always done that?
