      • 15. Re: Intel HD 530 - The mouse pointer has no shadow when using HDMI -> ugly jagged edges

        I have the same problem with my Intel Core i3 6100.


        In Adobe Photoshop:



        Problem goes away when I change refresh rate or some other parameters in Intel HD Graphics Preferences Panel. But after reboot it returns.


        As this issue appears only using HDMI connection, I was blaming my motherboard, even gave it to the service with CPU and RAM module, just in case. But that service didn't detect this issue, because it's very specific and small at its appearance.


        When I received h/w components from the service I went to the PC retail store asking for help. First we changed my Motherboard ASUS H110M-A to similar one - ASUS H110M-PLUS. Problem still appeared! Then we tried Gigabyte H170-HD3... Problem still was there! I was shocked because I had been sure, that problem with MB.

        Then I asked to change CPU - my i3-6100 to i5-6*** (don't remember exactly). Problem was not gone. We also tried to change RAM module and still nothing... We picked nearly a new PC only with my SSD and power supply and problem still was there. So it was not a hardware issue, as I understood.


        I also tried 5 different HDMI cables, Win 10 on SSD, Win 7 on HDD, almost all GPU driver versions... Nothing helped.

        As noticed by other users, when using DVI there are no problems, everything is perfect.


        It's very curious, that this problem appears only with cursors. But when in pointer properties of Win 10 or Win 7, animation is clear:

        How to repro

        Please provide steps to replicate the issue.  These steps are very crucial to finding the root cause and fix.
        A screenshot to illustrate the issue is a huge plus. A video of the failure is even better! Attach to the post or provide the YouTube link.

        1. Start some "hard" soft to make loading cursor appear
        2. See different cursors in graphics software from Adobe
        3. All is above

          With HD530 (Skylake) no shadow under mouse pointer


          Same Issue. Now i think it concerns all Skylake iGPU's connected with HDMI. From the beginning of the Release this Driver Issue (?!) exists.


          But nothing solved until now.

          • 18. Re: Intel HD 530 - The mouse pointer has no shadow when using HDMI -> ugly jagged edges

            I've tried them all. Any driver versions. Nothing has helped.

            Some manipulations help, but just until pc reboot.

            Issue is still unsolved, unfortunately.

                Hello Everyone,


                Thank you very much for all your input. I would like to let you know that Intel has replicated this issue, and we have increased its priority now.


                Our development team is working on a fix right now (Internal bug ID 1405276113).


                As soon as I have an update I'll post it this link With HD530 (Skylake) no shadow under mouse pointer
