Windows 7: Enlarged mouse cursor in certain applications

Enlarged mouse cursor in certain applications

If I have an open Zoom Player (media player application) window and move the mouse cursor over it, the cursor enlarges to about double the normal size. What's up with that? Does anyone know?

It could be a bunch of things. video driver, mouse driver, etc. We could tell alot more if you fill in your sys specs (lower left corner) so we know what hware you have. ALso 32bit or 64, clean install or upgrade?

My problem is solved after installing the BIOS update. For Gigabyte mobo P55-UD3R Rev1.0 if you have the BIOS ver.F2,then update it to ver.F4.Update is available at Gigabyte site. Pl. note if you plan to use Q Flash utility by going in the BIOS setup, you need to download the update on your HDD/Floppy first.Make sure your HDD is in FAT format.If it is in NTFS,do not use this method.In that case use FDD. Though Gigabyte mentions that one can use a USB drive(again in FAT file system) in QFlash, I could not see it in my system in Q Flash. I used the utility @BIOS(available at Gigabyte site) to flash the BIOS. See the attachment for BIOS version.
