About the bios I think I have the latest one because I bought this comp like 3 weeks ago.
but sometimes (actually pretty often), I must have pressed some hot key, and the cursor becomes huge. It's not just on desktop, even if I play Wo W the cursor is double size also. Apparently the automatic power saving (Power Play) is messing this up. It might waste more money over time, but hopefully they release new drivers soon.
Turning on cursor trails makes it back to small, and the occasional driver crash successfully recovered thing fixes it for a while, but why does the driver crash anyway? but sometimes (actually pretty often), I must have pressed some hot key, and the cursor becomes huge.

What you need to do is download AMD GPU Clock Tool or Rivatuner, and set your power a bit higher (then you can even OC a bit).
(If you have a Gigabyte motherboard do NOT upgrade your BIOS from inside windows using the @BIOS software. And I dont care it waste more power as long it works as it should work. Getting the latest AMD drivers and updating BIOS will fix this issue. There are many reports throughout this forum of people whose bios have been bricked by @Bios.
Instead, use Qflash which can be entered from BIOS or the boot screen.) Thank you both, I still didn't overclock from AMD Clock Tool because I'm not sure Godzealot, I need to select "Show current clocks" and then increase each one (engine and memorey by 50) or I increase the normal ones (7)? ekoostik, yes I have the latest driver from Catylst ATI main site (17/11 update). Instead, the bios should be updated using Qflash, which you can either launch as your system starts up or you can enter BIOS and launch it from there.
My question is how do you set your power a bit higher with AMD GPU Clock Tool? For desktop usage, just use a modest OC and set the clock. Do this right when windows boots so you maintain the small mouse pointer.
I've never use it and would appreciate your wisdom. Can you explain exactly how to do it because I dont want to make any mistakes with AMD GPU Clock Tool. Now your mouse cursor won't enlarge and you can watch videos without computer asploding =) Last note, you should do this right when you boot into windows, I have GPU Clock Tool in my startup folder.
If that solves your problem then you can install Catalyst Control Center if you want too, but if you have issues after that uninstall Catalyst Control Center. The reason you see 157 GPU Clock(engine) and 300 is because of power saving.
You can get the latest drivers here: some people it has been a two step fix. If that doesn't fix the problem, you should check that you have the latest BIOS for your motherboard installed. Yes my fix will waste more power, but it is only a little above standard 3d settings for this video card. F3f, 11/09/09 @Godzealot Sry for this newbie being, but by saying boot into windows do you mean you want me to restart the computer and then Open GPU Clock Tool?
They have 4850 and gtx 250 I have a feeling it's the 5800, or the drivers. This happens to anyone with a 5800 series and windows 7. What you need to do is download AMD GPU Clock Tool or Rivatuner, and set your power a bit higher (then you can even OC a bit).
I have a gigabyte p55 ud4p with a 5850 and I'm having the large cursor/ desktop freeze/crash as well. Fixes: Large Cursor, Driver Crash/Recovery, Video Playback Unresponsive System There are overclock and voltage settings there.
So please if anyone know how to fix this problems please reply! It will display your default clock and memory speeds. Unlike what I posted above, you do NOT have to adjust the voltage. Because once the mouse enlarges, you can't get it back to normal size, even with this trick. Even the latest Driver did not fix this, so this thread is still valid. If you don't have CCC, then your card is at default speed. You will not screw it up, all you will do is a very small overclock of 50mhz.
(using the tool he gave ofcourse) I also have i5 and HD5800 series. Hi, if you have overclock in ATI catalyst control center, go there and set it to default clock speed. You can overclock to anything you want, but just for desktop use, set each to 50 higher only. Hello Godzealot, first of all can I have your MSN or anything else? I have 25% overclock So I'm not sure what exactly im suppose to do mate! guess what, after I restart my computer and went to youtube to watch HD video it was fine but then when I put it to full screen, mouse became large and driver crashed nonstop so i had to manually restart ;/ as you can see in the screen shot the gpu clock when im in deskto pdoesnt change even when I did overclock it by 50, both of them. A lot of people, including myself, have been running into this problem. Running full screen Hulu or You Tube are common ways to trigger the issue.
