Hi all, just bought a new laptop recently.
- 32 GB ram
- Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics
- i7-8750H @2.20 GHz processor
- Windows 10 version 1803, 64-bit
Every time I open an application or a program, there is an annoying lag on the mouse cursor. It is particularly noticeable with Google chrome.
I know there is a lag because when I open an app, I move my mouse cursor -- and it does not move in real time.
Rather, it seems as if it is trying to catch up on previous instructions, and moves rapidly at once -- after about a second or two. It is an intermittent freezing.
It is not just Google chrome that performs this way. Rather, all applications are acting in this behavior.
Then, at the end, when I close applications, there is a strange silhouette of the window. Again, like the initial issue, there is a delay before the window fully closes.
The strange thing is that the problems go away when I connect a second monitor via HDMI.
Or, when Google Chrome is already open, and then I open up Google chrome again (not as a new tab, but a new window), then the freezing goes away.
I'm quite lost at what to do. I've hardly any experience with technology, so any help on this matter would be extremely appreciated.
All drivers are updated. I've disabled Cortana. I've disabled Realtek HD audio.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions and help.
