I have a Lenovo Core i7 machine (Lenovo W530), running with Windows 10. Every three seconds, my mouse hangs for a short instant. This issue had been reported earlier and seems to habe been fixed for some machines, but it continues to exist on mine. Thank you for your assistance!

  1. I’m not familiar with this but just to add some observation: after I upgraded to Windows 10 1709 recently, I also saw my mouse pointer hangs every 3 seconds, even with keep calibration status turned off (gray icon). It’s on a laptop with Intel i7-7700HQ with Optimus GTX 1060.

    Although I didn’t have this issue with DisplayCAL profile loader before 1709, I did have hanging mouse cursors quite often when the system is busy (can be reliably reproduced when a UAC pop-up is triggered, mouse cursor hangs for about half a second until the pop-up window is shown), and it sort of became worse on 1709 (it could be that 1709 also updated my Intel graphics driver which introduced the problem, but I haven’t checked). I don’t recall the same issue, at least not to this degree, on my previous laptop which only has a integrated GPU.

    Interestingly, after I bought an external display last week and plugged it into the mDP port, which happened to be directed connected to the GTX 1060 (no Optimus anymore), and only use the external display, all sorts of mouse cursor hanging issues are gone.

    So again this might relate to Intel’s graphics driver, especially with Optimus.

  2. I have the same issue with an Asus N76 with two GPU with Optimus. In fact , the problem is not only on the mouse but on the whole system which is very annoying especially when I look to a video. I think I will switch back to i1Profiler until this issue is fixed.
