Have you tried moving USB ports?

Any windows, our light bulbs behind you, within the camera view?

I use my TrackIR 5 throughout the day, and my office is quite bright. But, I don't have the sensor facing any windows. Direct sunlight or bright, defined reflections can disrupt tracking, but it doesn't need to be "dark" to have stable tracking. Bright ambient light shouldn't be an issue. But, if a window is in your TrackIR's view, covering the window might be necessary.

problem is that i live in northern sweden, and we got "daylight" 24hours a day soon, how do i explain to my wife that i need to cover the window all day everyday :)

just kiddin, she will understand :D i guess it was reflecting so that it lost the points, today it aint as sunny as yesterday and it works just fine.
