I'm using a Windows 7 64-bit machine with two monitors side by side.

Sometimes when I have a fullsreen application running on my main monitor and I am moving the mouse curser between the two monitors, the curser gets corrupted. You cannot see that it is a curser anymore.

To fix it I have to restart the computer.

Has anyone heard about this problem before? How do I fix it without rebooting?

Can you just restart explorer.exe instead of restarting the machine? – Hondalex Jul 22 '10 at 21:43
Have the same bug, two monitors with AMD card. – Superbest Jan 16 '15 at 7:34

I get a similar bug, but instead of the cursor disappearing, it looks like the tip of the cursor repeated below itself multiple times.

The only fix I've found it simply moving the cursor from monitor to monitor.

I have the same issue. The only answer I've found by searching is: Dual monitors plus AMD driver bug. Try updating it, but it may not help.
