Windows 2000, Windows 9x/Me does not give you control over
the mouse sample rate. A third party must be used to do
this. I recommend you download PS2Rate
Plus. This utility can be used to dynamically adjust the
Sample Rate for your Mouse.
This setting changes how
often Windows determines the position of your mouse.
this value will make your Mouse more sensitive to any input,
this can improve responsiveness although may make more
accurate movements more awkward, & vice versa.
Tweak Guides section can take you through configuring
your Games for improve Mouse functionality & smoothness.
These cover most popular games of all types, everything from
Half-Life/Counter Strike to Tribes 2 & Combat Flight
Simulator 2. These also contain further Troubleshooting tips
in some cases.
by now your Mouse will be significantly smoother
scrolling/tracking than it used to be & you know how to
clean the rollers to keep input smooth too. Your Mouse setup
should also be a lot more customized for the
desktop/applications & games. If you have any
Suggestions about this guide Email
me, if you are experiencing problems with your Mouse

Hardware Forum for help.
