Mouse is showing choppy movement

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

My mouse is working, but occassionally it shows very "choppy" movements. I've tried changing mouse pads but that doesn't seem to help. This is a plugged in mouse and it doesn't do it all the time, but are there any other suggestions? I could get another mouse and make sure it is the mouse and not the laptop, but thought I'd check first. Thanks!
