I don't have that problem although similar. My mouse freezes, it does not get larger,and the whole system freezes.The main screen shrinks slightly too. I have to pull the power wait about a minute and reboot. Its totaly random,happens after seconds or hours....

I have now sent the Asus 5770 for rma.

I bought a cheap 30 5450 and it is silent and can't see any difference in performance, although I do not play games.It is just for True hd audio and hd video. 100 cheaper!!
But guess what!The pc still froze....
It might not be the graphic card.
So far I have :
Checked and swaped ram and ran mem test.
Done a clean install of windows 7x64
I have RMA'd the psu,motherboard,graphic card.
Checked for over heating
Flashed bios.

Its crazy...The only thing it can be is the cpu or driver related, I have all the latest drivers.The cpu was fine before I upgraded my motherboard.
Could the hot fix solve this??Can anyone help??Could the asus AI auto settings in bios be the problem?I have tried different voltages but it still freezes!So I have it all on default.

Windows 7 64bit

well guys, i installed the 9.12 driver with the hotfix, and i am having no problems at all! i am suspecting that it is the new drivers that are fault.. so uninstall your current driver, then download the catalyst 9.12 hotfix (comes with the old driver). i hope nothing goes wrong, and amd is still replying to my problem.

Windows 7 ultimate (64-bit)
HD5770 crash fixed

Well, after a lot of crashing and reading forums I eventually found a fix that brought my daily crashes down to around 1 per month... I increased the PCI latency to 128 (twice what it had been, effectively allowing the device twice the time for its instructions) It doesn't appear to have caused any other problems and my system ran great for quite a while....just the occasional crash (approx 1 per month). I have now installed the cat 10.3 which is now available and hope that this is the end to the HD5770 problems.

HD 5770 Display Driver Crash Solution/Fix

So I registered here just to post the solution to this issue.It was pissing me off and im sure the rest of you too. The problem comes from the gpu clock and memory clock being to low to push the accelerated 2d UI.

So here is how I fixed it, I found this info with my google-fu

Here is the workaround: 
Open CCC and switch to ATI Overdrive 
Unlock and enable Overdrive 
Go to Options/Profiles/Profile Manager and create a new profile called, let's say, STABLE. 
Save the new profile. But DO NOT ACTIVATE the profile. 
Now go to C:\Users\{YourUserName}\AppData\Local\ATI\ACE\Profiles folder ( I assume C: is your system drive ) 
Note: You should have " show hidden files " turned on to see the folder. 
Open the .xml file named STABLE with notepad. 
Change the values of the idle Core clock and Memory clock speeds below 
Feature name="CoreClockTarget_0" 
Property name="Want_0" value="40000" note: previous value should be "15700" 
Feature name="MemoryClockTarget_0" 
Property name="Want_0" value="90000" note: previous value should be "30000" 
Save the file and close it. 
Go back to CCC and activate the profile. This will make the card idle at 400 MHz core clock and 900 MHz memory clock.
I found that the gpu core will run the UI stable at 226MHz tho if 400 MHz is too high for you. Prior to doing this I had the display driver crashing every 20 minutes or so.
Enjoy and Good luck.
