I know this is an issue ATI is aware of, but they have been aware of it for two years! and still no fix. I know using the magnify accessibility program will correct it, but... its really not a fix.

Does anyone know of a fix, official or unofficial that has gotten results?
I run the ATI radeon 5850 hd card

need anymore info/screen shots just ask.

Ive never had this glitch, but then again I dont normally run dual monitors, though I have in the past. Im running a 3870 x2. I also have a 4550 though ive never run dual monitors, and the 200m in my laptop has no issues with a external display as well as the ATI 4200 in my wifes compaq, with no issues. . .are your drivers up to date? and what OS are you using it in? ive tested m7 3870 x2 in xp home and vista ultimate-have not tried it with my 3870 in 7 yet, though the 4200 worked in 7 no problem. The only issue ive had with the compaq is with an external display attached, if its a mirror no problem, if I extend it reverses the screen on the laptop itself, really weird lol but ill get that figured out.

yes, my drivers are up to date, but I should once again, stress that ATI knows about this glitch, they simply have not fixed it, I Was just asking if anyone has found any sort of fix, besides the magnifier accessibility tool, because using that the cursor disappears in most full-screen games.

Does it have anything to do with maybe Catalyst Control Center?

Try removing everything ATI related and just install the Drivers without the Catalyst Control Center: https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2.ati.com/drivers/10-10_vista32_win7_32_dd_ccc_ocl.exe

Yes I have this problem from time to time but not all the time. Sometimes I can fix this by left clicking on my desktop in the right monitor and dragging my curser into the center monitor and releasing it,sometimes I can fix it by turning on AI-nap and turning AI-nap off. (Ai-nap is software from Asus for their motherboards) But most of the time I have to restart my PC. This is a common problem with AMD/ATI multi monitor setups there is lots of threads in the AMD forums on this topic. (On my setup it only effects the curser in the center monitor the left and the right monitor display the curser normally) I tried disabling the Icons on my desktop and for a while I thought that fixed the problem, but it came back again just not as frequently as it did before. Whether it's due to driver updates or my action I don't know. Cheers
