HD4000: mouse cursor jumping when mouse pointer is changing

Jump to solution

I'm running Win 8 (64) on my new HP EliteBook 8470p.

After connecting my secondary monitor (old Acer, 1280x1024) I noticed that whenever the mouse cursor is changing, for example while moving the pointer over a form field or text in firefox or moving it over the "border" of an application window, it's "jumping" a bit. This is quite irritating and also slowing down my workflow.

I reinstalled Windows, updated the HD4000 driver to the latest version (before that I tried the one from the HP support site, their driver is a bit older), without being able to solve the issue. The only thing that seems to work is to only use one screen. Otherwise my system is working fine.

I've searched the forum and found this message, that seems to describe a similar dual problem:

Thank you very much for your help!

Kind regards from Vienna (Austria),

Patrick

Hello everyone. Our latest driver has just been released, which should have the fix for this issue. Refer to this link for more information; /docs/DOC-19855 http://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-19855

Let me know if there are still issues!

Thanks,

-Nic

Hi Patrick,

I've been able to reproduce this issue on our end using our latest driver (2875) as well as our second latest driver (2867). I will forward this to the proper folks to take a look at.

Thank you,

Hi Nic,

thank you very much, I appreciate it!

Today I've tried it with a different monitor, same effect.

But something else interesting I've noticed: When I am watching a video while working - using more graphics power i suppose (RAM?) - the problem seems to disappear. For example, I am streaming a video in a browser window. All is fine. As soon as I am closing the window or even only hiding it behind another tab, the mouse cursor again is starting to "hang" or "jump".

Well, I am happy that you could reproduce the problem, this gives me hope for a solution or maybe an improvement with a future driver.

Again, thank you very much,

Patrick

Same here! Very annoying! I got this problem when doing a driver update through Windows Update.

I also experience reduced performance in League of Legends.

Is it possible to downgrade to an earlier version of the driver?

Hi guys,

I have two pieces of updated information for you about this issue;

1. A future version of the driver will contain the fix for this issue. I'll let you know which one that is when it comes out.

2. We've re-hosted the Win8 Beta Drivers on the download center if you want to revert to them, as they are the only ones for Win8 we can post that did NOT have this issue. http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=21757&keyword=2792&lang=eng Download Center

 

Thanks for your patience!

I forgot to mention that I'm running Windows 7 and have a dual monitor setup.

So the same problem is present in the Windows 7 64bit driver.

When will there be a driver update, and is it possible to revert to a previous driver version that do not have this issue?

Thank you, Nic! I'm running the beta driver now - without problems so far. I will continue using it until you can inform us about a release that includes the fix for the issue.

Kind regards,

BTW: The mentioned beta driver GFX_Win8_64_9.17.10.2792_PV.exe is a Win7 + Win8 driver. So you can use it with Win7.

Many thanks for making GFX_Win8_64_9.17.10.2792_PV.exe available again. Replacing the current version of the driver with this previous beta has helped largely alleviate a very annoying problem in Microsoft Word 2010 (32bit) running under Windows 8 (64bit) on a Dell Vostro 3450 with i5 2430m utilizing the HD3000 cpu graphics.

I use Word with a citation add-in from Endnote X6. As soon as this add-in was installed, each press of a cursor key in Word started to be accompanied by an hourglass circle at the mouse pointer location, and text insertion point movement became extremely slow. If the mouse pointer was to be moved outside of the Word window, the hourglass would not appear and text insertion point movement with the cursor keys would return to its normal speed.

After replacing the 9.17.10.2875 driver with the 9.17.10.2792 beta the hourglass no longer appears after each cursor key press, but only very briefly when a cursor key is held to activate character repetition.

My initial experimentation suggests that the problems described in this thread are not resolved in the new 15.28.12.2932 driver (or 9.17.10.2932, as reported in the Intel Graphics and Media CP). Should we revert again to the 9.17.10.2792 beta? Any ideas as to if and when this frustrating problem will be resolved?

Sorry, I was being general. The driver with the fix is not ready yet. I'll let you know when it is, and is available.

I am surprised that a serious problem such as this one has not been made top priority. I expect that on most machines that have Microsoft Word installed with a couple of add-ins this renders Word next to unusable for work on longer documents. There are other problems with the 9.17.10.2792 beta driver which is the newest Windows 8 one that is free from the problem, and having to go back to it again is disappointing and inconvenient.

@nic: It's not your fault

 

I installed the new driver and the stutter is still there.

 

 

If you read the release notes, then intel has fixed totally unimportant things.

I agree with the other guys, it's quite surprising that a bug like this is being carried over to a new release of the driver - or that it wasn't discovered early enough during internal testing, to include the fix.

Still, thanks nic, for keeping us informed!

Just to report that, after extensive testing, I can confirm that with respect to the "mouse pointer changing" problem the behaviour of my laptop, both on its built-in display only, and with an external monitor attached, is just the same as with the previous driver. As a result, I have re-installed the 9.17.10.2792 beta driver, with which a particular older program that I frequently use (PCModel, molecular modelling), does not work at all, but having Microsoft Word behave properly is somewhat more important.

I have this same problem. The mouse pointer stutters when passing over the edges of windows or text fields. It seems as if the pointer *must* change from arrow into text input and back to arrow, no matter how fast the mouse is moving over that field. This may be related, but in IrfanView, when dragging around a picture by right-click-hold-and-drag, it's very jerky. When mouse pointer trails are turned on, it's very smooth. However, with pointer trails turned on, when "hide pointer while typing" is unchecked, it still hides the pointer. Regardless, every time the pointer passes over a field that would change it's icon, it stutters.
