mouse movement is delayed when using gui

Yesterday I installed Slackware 14.0 on a new system with windows. The mouse works fine when I boot to the command line but when I startx it stops functioning properly: there is a delay of a couple seconds between moving the mouse and having the pointer on the screen move. Also the pointer movement is choppy. Happens in any window manager. I am not sure what relevant information I can provide. The mouse is wireless usb. I believe I successfully created an initrd so that I am using a generic kernel. I created an xorg.conf file using xorgsetup. I couldn't find an /etc/rc.conf file. Device settings in window managers don't provide noticable improvements. This should be enough info to let you know how lost I am. If you could help I would really appreciated it.

vim /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "Device"
Option "HWcursor" "Off" -----> Add this line in the Section Device

logout the session and login again to check the mouse working status
