Ensuring that you have installed the official driver of your mouse is the first thing we recommend you do.
Using dedicated software to ensure a clean and correct installation of your mouse driver is the most reliable recommendation.

2. Disable the V-Sync within CSGO
When V-sync is enabled in CSGO, the game synchronizes the frame rate of the game with your monitors refresh rate with the purpose of providing a better stability within the game.
Although a better stability is desirable, this doesn’t always mean that the game also plays better.
By disabling the V-sync, the frame rate cap will be unlocked and also the screen tearing along with the input lag.
To perform this action, open your CSGO game, and locate the V-Sync option in the video settings. Make sure to tap on the option and select that is disabled.
3. Change the repeat rate
- Go to the Search box and type in Control Panel.
- Click on it when displayed and search for keyboard.
- Next, click on the keyboard and change the repeat rate and repeat delay settings so they match the settings from the image below.
- Click Apply and OK to save the changes.
4. Disable the automatic turn off
- Open the Device Manager.
- Locate the Universal Serial Bus controllers option.
- Right-click on the first USB Root Hub and click on Properties.
- Next, click on Power Management tab and untick the box Allow the computer to turn of this device to save power.
