Mouse lag and system slowdown with Skype

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just installed ML 10.8 and everything seems to be ok, but when I use the webcam with skype, the mouse starts to lag like crazy. Sometimes it even just crashes the entire system. I tried Googling it but foung nothing conclusive. It can't be just me with this problem, can it?

Also, I had the same problem before with Logic Pro. I couldn't fix it so I did a fresh install. Now, LP is okay but Skype is buggy.

BTW, my rig is:


Gigabyte ep-45-ud3r

Intel Q6600


Nvidia GTX650


I installed OSX using Myhack installer and then used the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] installer (Non-DSDT).

Well, I solved it and it was relatively simple in the end - although it may have deeper implications for technical reasons. My mouse is a a wireless mouse with the USB dongle plugged into an external USB hub. I simply plugged the dongle directly into the back of the computer and the mouse lag seems to have gone! If it re-occurs, I will post again..
