Fragmented Cursor

Hey guys.

I'm having a strange problem with a fragmented cursor. It is identifiable as whatever cursor it is supposed to resemble, but it is chopped up vertically and rearranged. It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does, it won't correct til I boot.

Also I'm not 100% sure about this, perhaps 50%, but there may be a trend in a program crash or BSOD following (at some point) the cursor getting all wiggy.

Only happens on my large screen, not my second monitor which is a smaller 4:3.

Video card is an HD5870 from Sapphire, stock settings.

Any ideas?

  1. Graphics card driver. Are you using the latest Version?
  2. Make sure the driver are installed properly, get the latest one from ATI site...
  3. Yeah, it's been happening with the previous 3 suites, just upgraded again today...

    Time to play the waiting game.
  4. custom
  5. Not always, it happens more often in SC2 than anything, but it has happened outside of programs as well.

    Just recently updated drivers again, still occurring.

    Yeah. SC problem for me too. For those looking, TeamLiquid has some suggestions on this: http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=140799&currentpage=2
    They are all silly hacks while waiting for a real driver fix, but whatever works, right?
