mouse cursor and display problems

Hi, I have an Abit BH6 motherboard, and ever since installing my Creative GeForce2 GTS I’ve had problems with random colored pixels appearing on the display. Its not the end of the world, but it is more noticeable after running a game or openGL application. Refreshing the display resolves this temporarily.

The other problem I’ve had is that after upgrading the display driver, the mouse cursor always disappears over an openGL window. There are similar problems in other applications, for example, Swing-based java UIs.

Anyone else have any problems with the old Abit BH6 and this Creative card? Creative is stumped and Abit is unavailable for comment. I’m starting to think I have a bum card, but otherwise, the performance is quite good.
