Default Razer Naga Cursor drifting - what causes this?

Suddenly out of the blue, my razer naga mouse cursor started drifting from the center of the screen towards the lower right corner slowly. The mouse is perfectly still, nothing is touching it at all.

I uninstalled the driver, reinstalled the most recent driver i could find for Win7 x64 and also upgraded to the latest firmware avail for the razer naga as well. Still drifts on random occasions. Sometimes it will behave perfectly for days, then all of the sudden, there it goes again, drifts off to the lower right from where ever the cursor is on the screen.

I have even tried inserting the cord into other USB ports, still all do the same thing.

Anyone else ever seen this before? Ive had the mouse a while and it has always been fine till today. I scanned the system for malware, bugs etc, comes up clean.

Any ideas welcome!

Try the mouse on a different surface. It could be that the sensor sometimes rests in the perfect spot where it gets confused by the image that it's seeing.

I was looking at buying one of these today...read a number of reviews that had the same problem you are having...and a number of other reviews that said you pretty much have to buy a razer mousepad.

I was having this issue as well with my razer naga. I came across a post on another forum stating these mice are extremely sensitive to vibration. If you have anything on your desk that is causing even a slight vibration that is the reason. In my case i had an air purifier on the top of my desk that i kept on 24/7 when i turned it off the drift stopped. turned it back on and drift happened again.

Definitely not the mousepad. hope this helps

Thanks empwillkill! Was looking for a solution and this was it! I had a small fan on my desk that would cause it to vibrate very faintly but constantly. To think that the first one I had that I RMA'ed due to this issue was because of my desk fan...

i turned down the dpi on my razer naga and it helped. from 2400 to 1800 dpi.(still 1000mhz polling rate)

i was blasting music and the speakers on the table vibrated the table.
subwoofer was not touching the table....but surprised me....how sensitive the sensor was.

didn't happen on my razer abyssus tho.
