Cursor issue with dual monitor setup

We have an odd problem with one of our Dell laptops, using a second monitor, connected to a docking station. The mouse cursor works perfectly on the laptop, but when the user moves to the second monitor the cursor will change and stay as the first click command given (i.e the cursor changes to the hour glass and stays that way when the command is completed). The cursor works correctly it just looks wrong. If the user moves the cursor back to the laptop everthing looks and works fine.

"      The Laptop is a Dell Precision M6300 running WinXP SP2 and all updates.
"      Nvidia Quadro FX 1600M video card with newest drivers  

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Have you checked the settings like Refresh rate etc configured for the additional monitor?

Hi,
I have checked the refresh rate and gone through the NVidia display settings which all look OK to me.

Try to upgrade the mouse driver or install a another mouse and check if you still have problem
