X1 Yoga 3rd Gen - cursor randomly glitches

Randomly my cursor will glitch when I hover over a link. The attached image shows some kind of black box but then on certain areas it will also show the scroll symbol (like the the one that pops up when pressing the middle button of above the touchpad). Once it comes on, it stays like that until I restart the computer. I'm trying to remember if it pops up anytime but I think it also pops up when I'm running this java based software and after awhile it pops up. I saw a thread of disabling the the middle button but I really don't want to start disabling normal functions as a fix. Any thoughts or suggestions?

 

Update: It happens without having the Java software open as it is occuring as I type.

Hi @epk87!

 

Kindly perform a clean boot where it starts with a minimal set of drivers and startup programs, so that you can determine whether a background program is interfering with your laptop. Please follow the steps here.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Regards,

I have the same problem and it also makes the mouse pointer drift if I push just for 2-3 seconds. This computer is becoming painful to use and I'm a huuuuge fan! I don't see any pattern to when this happens. It just started about a half hour ago.

Still trying to figure it out. It came on again and the only services I had running were Lenovo/Microsoft/Wacom/Steam/Intel and the glitch happened again...so now I'm quitting steam and see how long it takes to happen again.

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
