In your screenshot above. Because you were using a version that didn't support your card yet.

Ah, my bad. Paying attention to one thing, and not another.

lol, if you read above, you'll see I did THE EXACT same thing with 'smarteyball'!

So far I like this card, but this BIG MOUSE issue is driving me nuts, if you haven't heard about it, I started another thread and there is quite a bit that can be googled on it but no real fix yet.

At random, since installing my 5870 with ATI CCC 9.10 x64, the mouse cursor just goes HUGE on me. No way to change it back via any settings, only by rebooting. Becoming a real nuisance and big embarrassment on ATI's part.

Yeah I saw that. I saw your first few lines about your 5870 ATI card, and just assumed the screenshots were about it, not the nvidia card. But your two apps were older versions though.

I have a 5770, not seeing any weird mouse pointer issues.

read this:

AMD Game Forums - 9.10 5870, CURSOR ISSUE NOT FIXED.

I didn't know there was an HD video playback problem also related to the mouse issue, so I tried firing up an HD video and voila, my computer went ape $hit as well. I only have a couple days left to return and compared to Nvidia, the software side of ATI seems to be scaring me away now.

Just keep in mind that this is new tech and it will undoubtedly take a few revisions to sort a lot of niggling issues out.

On the other hand, welcome to the world of Catalyst drivers

Hmm,

Still don't have any of that. I saw one guy on there mentioned he had the issue with his 5770 though. I watched some 1080p HD video clips, full screen and not, was just fine.

I am using the drivers for 5770 and not specifically 9.10, which these for 5770 are a little later drivers than the 9.10. 9.10 are 8.66.1, these are 8.66.6.

You might try them if you were so inclined, but who knows if it might clear the problem or not. Might not.

drivers for 5800's 5700's which are 8.66.6

There are also some beta developer drivers, beta 9.11 too. These aren't direct from AMD but..

IMO, NVidia's no perfect angel either. Each has their own problems, that are fixed with passing time.

Yep. With the amount of dodgy drivers they have been relasing lately, the "Nvidia drivers rock while ATI drivers suck" argument is now largely a moot point.

The story continues.....

I found a beta driver ATI 9.11 (driver 8.67) and no changes. Performance is still good, but the mouse still gets fat on it's own AND I still have the video problem.

The video crash also just happened while watching a youtube video in FULLSCREEN HD mode. After more googling and reading it seems there are several with this problem and both may be linked.

It has to do with either fullscreen HD movies or fullscreen streaming movies, believe it or not.

No issues when gaming in fullscreen, just movies.

I like the performance, just don't like the dodginess thus far.

Flash Fullscreen Crash - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

On that forum, someone states they fixed it by changing some 'hardware acceptation' setting but he/she doesn't elaborate. Anyone know if this is Catalyst or Java related?

PS - 'Airbot' your link for the 9.11 drivers above still goes to 9.10, might want to fix that.
