I have a Thinkpad T450s with the standard integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics 5500). For the last few months, after using the computer for several hours (usually after 4-5 hours of runtime without a restart), my pointer will suddenly change, where when I scroll over links or anything clickable, it shows a black box, and when I scroll over text entry fields, it shows a "scroll" graphic. To solve the problem, I have to restart the computer (and then of course it begins again after 4-5 hours of use). I'm using Windows 10, the OS is fully updated and the drivers for all system components are fully updated. I've included screenshots of the artifacts at the link below:
There isn't any pattern as to when it happens (i'm not using a specific program, or after a specific amount of time). I'm not doing anything very intense with the system, typically using it for web browsing in Chrome, email in Outlook, and some very simple Python development. Any ideas what could be causing it?
