So I'm having this issue, I'm using a i7 laptop with an Intel graphics card, and a Nvidia hdmi card for external displays.

The cursor flickers and sometimes dissapears when I have my external monitor plugged in, the external monitor works, but it lags my cursor.

I tried installing the Nvidia-current driver and this broke everything, the menus and bars are missing.

When uninstalling the nvidia driver, it's still in the same state.

Can anyone purpose something?
