So yea, as the title says, when my mouse goes to the top left of the mousepad it starts to skip/jitter/not work at all. I've figured out it's due to being close to my monitor. when i put it under the bottom right of the monitor my mouse won't work at all. Has anyone dealt with this before? If so, what would happen to fix this issue?

yep, ive tried multiple areas of the mousepad, different wire positions etc. two different mouse pads. I moved the monitor away and it works fine, So its definitely the monitor.

Edit: i've also tried it with different computers/ OS including linux and it still persists with this monitor only.

You're having an EMI (electro-magnetic interference) issue.

Something is definitely out of spec/breaking (probably some bad capacitors) on that monitor if it's strong enough to overwhelm the signal on a WIRED mouse. Unless you know how to solder and replace capacitors and you want to take apart your monitor and then rebuild it, you should just replace your monitor (RMA/buy a new one).

-edit-
I want to clarify something is SERIOUSLY wrong with your monitor if it's interfering with the signal of multiple different wired mice. I wouldn't be surprised if your monitor dies suddenly or if you start smelling burning electronics, cause this just doesn't/shouldn't happen with an LCD panel.

yeah I have the same mouse/monitor and have never had that issue comanglia is probably right
