Default mouse movement not smooth

whenever i try to use a laser mouse on my computer, say i try to move the cursor straight down. instead of going straight down, it will go down and to the right or left sometimes if i try to move it relatively slow. now i this an issue with all laser mice? is it maybe something to do with it being in a usb 1.1 port? or maybe do you think that my mouse has a defect or something?

Well, that could be the mouse being defective. The converter may be bad.

now I highly doubt this has anything to do with it but the usb 1.1 does have a significantly lower data transfer rate than 2.0...do you have another PC you can try it with that has a 2.0 or maybe even another 1.1 just to be positive it is the mouse and not the PC.

I personnally think its the usb port. Like kjman said teh data transfer is MUCH slower than the 2.0
