Yup, I have the same problem. Mostly happens at startup (but not every time), and sometimes just randomly, even after using the computer for a few hours. I have a SteelSeries Sensei (but the same thing happened using my old Razer DeathAdder). I have 16 GB of RAM and an SSD, so this has to some kind of OS bug.

I'm probably reverting back to Windows 7 until 8 goes RTM. Hopefully they fix this annoying bug by then. Honestly, I don't even want to upgrade, but need to keep up with current tech.

Windows 8 being able to jerk is at least one new feature people here won't complain about.

No issues under 7.

Why don't you manually install the driver from here?

Hmm.. this has happened a few times to me too...Each time I think it's the battery going out but seems to recover after a short while...

IE10 three digit tab numbers. IE10 effectively fails under stress.


You're saying it fails when you have 100+ tabs open?

Depends on a lot of variables. But yes, sometimes it fails. Especially if the site is slow.
I managed to get it to give me a warning message saying that the site is doing something illegal (it wasn't). Before that it was outputting gibberish in certain tabs.
Interesting.
IE10 has a lot of bugs in W8 RP most having to do with managing tabs and keeping cool under stress.

Wow this is crazy. It just happened to me - Windows 8 RP. I don't usually use Firefox but when I opened it this is when it started happeni update: I mis-diagnosed, it was the USB Hard Drive that I don't usually use, and is a potentially faulty drive too.

I am using the trackpad on my laptop. When I put my finger on the trackpad (without moving my finger around) the cursor starts behaving erratically, jittering around in small movements until I let go. If I move my finger, the cursor jitters as I'm moving it. It makes it very hard to click things accurately.

I have not rebooted yet. Very strange.
update: Unplugging the USB Hard drive without rebooting fixed it.

I'm experiencing this issue with my mouse. Its a logitech mediaplay. Batteries are not low, its not bluetooth, and it worked on my win7 gear.
Just built a new rig with win 8 64bit, 32 gig ram, 2 hdd, 1 ssd, core i7, etc etc...

Mouse is just not fully responsive. My dad has a new win 8 computer as well, and connected a microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard to the comp and it was also jerky and not fully responsive.
No fix yet.
thanks
