Also when I mouse down on a title bar the pointer turns small as long as the button is pressed.
I have the exact same problem - the mouse on two monitors is fine and the mouse for the other two is changed. However it took me so long to get 1900x1080 to work without having to change the scaling settings on my large monitor, I am not going to upgrade. I'm on the final vista catalyst driver. Using ANY ati win7 driver results in a squished display on my large monitor. I'm using two 4670 cards

Digging up this old thread because I am having this issue with my new rig. XFX 5850 XXX Edition running Catalyst 10.1 (I started with this one since I read it is more stable than 10.2, and I am waiting for 10.4 to release next month). Is anybody else still having this issue? From the article helmut linked to it was supposed to have been resolved with Catalyst 9.11, but that doesn't seem to be the case (at least for me). Should I go ahead and upgrade to 10.2 anyway?

Today, it blew up on me out of the blue, but then resumed normal size after installing a Windows Update. I guess the update caused Windows Explorer to reload.

TIA for any advice.

Well after 6 months of contacting ATI and XFX (the Card Manufacturers) I FINALLY have the solution to my problems.

I sent my Card back to the Supplier (a .com website who's name I shall not disclose for now). As XFX Support told me that the likely cause is a faulty Graphics Card.

The solution...?

A replacement graphics card... I've had to pay extra for the privilege as the Supplier doesn't sell the Graphics Card as a stand alone item anymore, I have to buy it with a game bundle from their site!! Bloody Cheek!

So if you're having issues with the Mouse Pointer blowing up to ENORMOUS sizes and random screen freezes/crashes then it might be a fault with it.

I suggest you find another card to tide you over if you decide to send it back to your Supplier. As they generally don't send out replacements for non-faulty cards.


So yeah, if your still having problems my heart goes out to you guys. Fingers crossed when my replacement arrives ... IT WORKS!!


P.S: If you're wondering who my supplier was then it was ebuyer.com - worst Customer Service EVER!!! 6 months this issue has been going on

That big mouse issue luckily hasn't hit me, but it's been going around for a long time and they keep thinking they got it, but it keeps coming back. :P

I never got it once either.

Yeah, they said it was partially fixed with the 10.1's I think.

Thanks for the link, Airbot. I downloaded the original 10.3 on Friday and it fixed the issue I was having with Bioshock 1 not running, but I still got the large pointer... guess I will try this "b" ver. Can't remember where I read about the plans for 10.4, but that one is supposed to be the bees knees.
