I'm using a 2.4G wireless mouse (VicTsing model D-09).  When I scroll fast the screen "bounces" back and forth and scrolls in a choppy manner.  If I scroll very slowly it does not do this, or at least not as bad. 

Anybody ever have this issue?

Hi,

Does it do this on other computers?
If so, could it be the mouse itself has some dust or something else inside in the scroll wheel sensor?
If you are confortable opening a device you can use an aircan to "blow it away" ( 1$ stores have them here, so you could check yours if needed ).

Pretty sure it's only happening on LL, but I will give it a try!  Thanks.

BINGO!  You nailed it.  I hit it with some contact cleaner and compressed air and it's back to normal.  Thanks - good idea.

I shoulda thought of it - if it was a car, I would have... derp!

But thanks for making me aware of the THANK button as well.
