Many users find their Logitech mouse starts to glitch all of a sudden. If your Logitech mouse is also slow and laggy, no worries. In this post, we’ve put together a few fixes that are proved to be working. You don’t have to try them all, just work your way down the list until you find the one that does the trick!
Try these fixes…
Fix 1: General troubleshooting steps
To fix the freezing problem of your Logitech mouse, you can start from the basics. Sometimes it’s just a minor problem and you can get it fixed within seconds. Here are some first steps you can try:
- Make sure your mouse is fully charged/the battery is working fine. When your mouse is on a low battery, you may experience glitches and lags.
- Use a mouse-friendly surface.
- Make sure the mouse isn’t broken. You can try the mouse on a different device, or try a new mouse on your device to see if the problem persists. If your mouse is dead, you may need a repair or consider getting a new mouse.
If this doesn’t help, you can move on to the next fix.
Fix 2: Test the mouse connection
Logitech has all types of mice: wireless, Bluetooth, and wired. No matter how the mouse is connected to a device, the connection needs to be stable so the mouse doesn’t lag. Here’s how to test your mouse connection:
For wired mouse
Make sure the wire is intact, and it’s plugged into a working USB port. You can try switching USB ports to see if it helps.
For wireless mouse
If the USB transceiver’s function is impaired, the mouse connection will be unstable and cause glitches and lags. You may also need to check if the USB ports on your PC are working. You can try to:
- Unplug the transceiver from the USB port, leave it disconnected for a few seconds, and then re-plug it back.
- Use a different USB port on your PC.
- Use a USB hub and try all the ports on the hub.
- Move the USB to a different USB port on your PC.
For Bluetooth mouse:
You need to make sure the Bluetooth connection is reliable. You can try reconnecting the mouse to your PC, or disable any Bluetooth devices close to your PC to avoid interference.
If this doesn’t solve your problem, try the next fix.
Fix 3: Update/Reinstall your mouse driver
If your mouse driver is faulty or outdated, your mouse can be slow and laggy. You can either try to update or reinstall your mouse driver. There are two ways: manually or automatically.
Manual driver update – You can update or reinstall your mouse driver via Device Manager. If Windows doesn’t have the latest version of the driver you need, you can search on the manufacturer’s website. Be sure to download only the driver that’s compatible with your Windows version.
Automatic driver update – If you don’t have the time, patience, or computer skills to update your driver manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy. Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct driver for your exact mouse and your Windows version, then it will download and install the driver correctly:
1) Download and install Driver Easy.
2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
3) Click the Update button next to the flagged mouse driver to automatically download the correct version of the driver, then you can manually install it (you can do this with the FREE version).
Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system. (This requires the Pro version which comes with full support and a 30-day money-back guarantee. You’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All.)
If you need assistance, please contact Driver Easy’s support team at email@example.com.
Restart your PC for the new drivers to take effect. If your Logitech mouse is still lagging, try the next fix.
Fix 4: Check if other devices are interfering
This fix is for those using a wireless or Bluetooth mouse. If you’re using a corded mouse, jump to fix 5 below. For Logitech wireless and Bluetooth mice, the radio interference could be causing the lagging issue.
If anything is blocking the signal between your mouse and your PC, you’ll experience mouse glitches and input lag. You can check your wireless keyboard, Bluetooth speaker, Wi-Fi router, or other devices close to your PC. If you find any device causing the mouse lag, you can move it further or try not to use both the device and your mouse at the same time.
If the problem persists, there’s one more fix you can try.
Fix 5: Reinstall/Uninstall the Logitech software
Logitech users can customize the settings of their mice and other products, such as keyboards and headsets, via the Logitech software. But some users have reported that the Logitech software has caused random issues. If your mouse keeps lagging, you can try to reinstall or uninstall the Logitech software and test if the issue is resolved.
Note that there are a few Logitech software for different products, so make sure you find the one that supports your mouse.
