Corrupt mouse cursor icon in windows 7 Professional 64 bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having an issue with my mouse cursor icon in win 7 pro x64, I was reading up on <http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itproui/thread/820764ce-97f6-49e6-9735-014531664e0d> and noticed a lot of the users were using ATi video cards but I am using on-board video right now which is a GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a have the latest drivers and even tried older ones, the issue occurs when I go past the edge of an application where the cursor icon would change (i.e from a resizing icon to a normal pointer icon and vice versa) where the icon gets about 4x larger and corrupt then goes back to normal, using magnifier and leaving it open (and set to 100%) works but this is not an acceptable permanent solution, any ideas?

  • Please perform a Clean Boot.

    Click Start, type msconfig in the search box.

    In the General tab, choose selective startup, only check load system services.

    In the Services tab, choose Hide all Microsoft services, click Disable all.

    Than click apply and ok. Restart the computer check if the issue persists.

  • Visit nVidia.com and download the latest driver for your hardware.

    If nVidia has stopped releasing new driver updates, which may be true with a card as old as the 7025, then you should consider buying a new video card.  Doing so will not only likely correct the problem you're seeing, but also provide you a greatly enhanced user experience in virtually every application.  It's surprising how much better a modern video card can make your system feel to use.

    And you don't have to spend a lot.  You can get quite good video cards nowadays for under a hundred bucks.  I recommend the ATI Radeon HD 5670, as it's the one I use and it's quite trouble-free.

  • as far as im concerned my hardware is supported under windows 7, this seems to be a windows issue therefore shouldn't MS try to remedy this problem?

  • Does this issue existed in Safe Mode?

    Update the BIOS and video card to check if it works.
