I've been having this problem with my mouse icon where it changes into this odd vertical icon composed of 8 or so little images of just the top of the original mouse icon. Also, around when this happens, if the mouse icon needs to change to the "I" icon used for text, it begins to flicker and has 2 bars above it.
I've searched around and I've found some people who had a problem where the mouse randomly became enlarged but that was fixed with an ATI HD4800 series hotfix for the 9.12 driver
, but the driver I'm using is version 10.2 which is the most up to date. It's not a major problem, mostly aesthetic really, but I'm worried that it might be a symptom of a larger problem, i.e. my graphics card slowly dying.
I noticed that the problem occurs (at least recently) when I'm moving the mouse from one monitor to the other (I have a dual monitor setup). The monitors have different resolutions. My primary is 1280x768 and my secondary is 1440x900.
Any thoughts that anyone could provide would be really appreciated. It's not a huge concern but I figure it's better to be safe than sorry.
