Windows 7 Black wallpaper, big cursor, and HD streaming

Hi I'm having some serious issues. I have a ATI 5770 card and I put on the Catalyst 9.11 drivers. Shortly after doing this, my cursor is triple the size (happens randomly), I can't stream HD videos in fullscreen (I can if I disable Hardware Accelerator), and the most disturbing issue is that I can't change my wallpaper anymore...I can only change it to solid colors. I tried restoring my PC via system restore and no dice. I really want to go back to Catalyst 9.10...how does one go about doing this? Do I have to uninstall my 9.11 drivers and then install the 9.10? I'd really appreciate a step by step instruction to this...I'm stressing out over here.

My system:
Gigabyte P55-UD3R ATX LGA1156 P55 DDR3 2PCI-E 4PCI SATA2 RAID Sound GLAN Motherboard
Antec Truepower New 650W Modular Power Supply ATX12V V2.3 Active PFC 80 Plus SLI Ready 120MM PWM Fan
G.SKILL F3-10666CL9D-4GBNQ PC3-10666 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-24 240PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit
Intel Core i5 750 Quad Core Processor Lynnfield LGA1156 2.66GHZ 8MB Cache Retail Box
Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 850MHZ 1GB 4.8GHZ GDDR5
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Yeah, this seems like a reoccuring issue with the Gigabyte P55 motherboards.
I believe gigabyte has issed a fix for the UD4P motherboard which fixed it for good, an the UD2 motherboard (saw this on newegg), with that being said, I'm not sure what the situation is for the UD3R specifically. However flashing the BIOS to the latest revision would probably be a good idea.

Here's the link to the bios.

Not sure if the latest is the one you need, but as it stands now, the BIOs F3m has fixed this issue. Here's the source: http://www.overclock.net/ati/602630-huge-cursor-problem...
