erratic mouse after upping resolution

Built myself a new PC a couple of days ago and installed XP after reading the comments of a lot of people on this site. Very happy with it but have noticed a mouse problem after upping the resolution to 1024 by 728. My specs are K7S6A,2200XP,256 DDR and Radeon 7000 64 Meg Graphics. I have a cordless mouse and keyboard bought from Time(aarggh) a couple of months ago. My previous PC had a bog standard 8 meg graphics and with my 17 inch monitor I had no problems with 1024-728 and 16 bit colour using the same mouse and keyboard. Now, on my current PC at those settings my mouse slows right down and I have to click a couple (or three)times for the PC to respond. If I run at 800/600 I have no problems. Anyone got any ideas please?

check your mouse settings in control panel,or in software that came with the mouse.check your battery.

Cheers frogg but had already done that. Have just decreased resolution to 800/600 and mouse is quick and slick! Can't understand the reasoning why upping the res should have such an adverse effect.
