Ever noticed how your mouse cursor flickers sometimes, or doesn't run as smoothly as a mouse cursor on a Macintosh? That's because the refresh rate is set too low, modify this key to speed things up and make your mouse cursor move smoothly.
1. Click on START>RUN>
2. Type REGEDIT and click OK
3. Find the key listed below and doubleclick on "SampleRate", choose Base > Decimal, then enter a value from 60 - 200, where a higher number = smoother cursor.
4. Close the Registry Editor and restart your PC.

Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters]
Value Name: SampleRate
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data: 0 - 200 (default = 60)
