Windows 7: Broken cursor on main monitor

20 Jun 2011   #31

Windows 7 Home 64

Well I had the default ATI drivers installed by HP, went online and downloaded the latest. So far so good (I was actually experiencing the problem and haven't rebooted), in device manager it says driver version 8.861.0.0. Catalyst Control Center says 11.6. Thanks to everyone in this thread.

I started seeing this problem as soon as my organization migrated from XP to Windows 7. Our help desk solved this by control panel > hardware and sound > devices and printers > mouse > pointers. Change the Windows 7 default scheme "Aero" to "Windows Standard." This fixes the problem.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I have exactly that same problem! But the cursor looks fine on any captures.
I get my problem when I'm playing a specific mode on a game. Only happens there. I've tried the game's forum, and a lot of people seem to be having this problem. The common factor, though, is that everyone has an ATI (AMD) graphics processor.
I have to restart now to get a normal cursor again.

Please share any solutions if found?

How do I access my main monitor if broken in a multi-monitor setup?
I have a setup with 6 monitors. Today my main monitor broke and I couldn't find a way to shut the PC down since I couldn't access the main desktop to get to the Start menu. Is there a way to change which monitor is the main monitor without having access to the current main monitor?
