Idiots guide in solving windows 7 big mouse problem

Many who are using windows 7 on a gigabyte mother board or using an ATI 5XXX  graphics card series might face with a problem where mouse cursor suddenly become large. This is the problem caused due to incompatibility between the BIOS and the graphics card .


1) Restarting the system:

Restarting the system might help to solve the problem temporarily. But the problem might arise again.

2) Changing the screen resolution:

Those who don�t want to restart every time the problem arises , They can temporarily change the screen resolution and revert it back to original screen resolution when ever the problem arises. Or Set the screen resolution permanently to a level lower than the default one permanently which might solve the problem of resetting the screen resolution.

3) Update BIOS:

people who are using gigabyte mother boards this problem can be resolved if they update their BIOS.

   1. Download @BIOS from Greev84's link
    2. Extract it and run the setup.exe
   3. After installation go to Start -> All Programs -> Gigabyte and right-click @BIOS    and choose "Run as Administrator"
   4. Choose Yes in the confirm box
   5. Now you should have @BIOS running :)
   6. Go to Gigabyte's homepage and download your latest BIOS to your specific  motherboard (if it is newer than you current which is displayed in @BIOS after "BIOS Sign on Message"
   7. Extract the BIOS into a folder, I created a BIOS folder on the desktop.
   8. Now in @BIOS choose "Update BIOS from File" and navigate to the destination to where you extracted the BIOS you downloaded (in my case Desktop\BIOS)
   9. Double-click on the file which isn't an executable (look at picture). In my case it was the "p55ud3r.f4"-file.
  10. It will display a progress bar which says erasing and writing depending on what it's currently doing.
  11. Reboot and run @BIOS to confirm that the update
