I'm using AutoCAD 2012 on ASUS WIN 7, i5, 4GB RAM, Intel HD Graphic Card.
For some reason my cursor becomes very laggy and jerky as I use the "Line" tool,
that being said, my cursor is completely fine when I use any other tool.
I know in the AutoDesk "Knowledge Base" there's a similar Q&A for my situation, but after doing carry out all the AutoCad commands the cursor is still laggy. I don't have a face scanner or virus program turned on. My drivers are updated as well.
So far, only "Line", "Polyline", and just about any function that involves drawing a line (eg: arc), my cursor becomes very laggy.
Seeing my laggy problem is isolated to "Line" function, I'm thinking my problem is not a hardware/software issue, but more of a setting problem.
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Hey for anyone who's having the same problem,
change your windows to Basic!
Win 7, desktop, Personalize, Windows 7 Basic theme!
That'll solve the problem!
I have been having the same problem and tried all these suggestions with little success. Then as I searched within the program for every kind of grid or condition that my cursor could be snapping to.
I thought I would just type in "SNAP" into the command line. Wouldn't you know it, but my cursor was set at a 1/16th inch grid and I could turn it off. It has litterally been that easy the whole time. I am surprised that isn't in Autocad's recommendations to resolve the problem.
I am having this same issue with the cursor. AutoCAD 2012 Mechanical. I have tried every suggestion possible and nothing seems to be working, except at least in my case turning ORTHO off but I need having the ORTHO on to work. Here is what I have tried:
1- SELECTIONCYCLING - Off
2- Windows 7 Aero Themes - Off
3- Properties Palette - Off
4- Not using Bitlocker Feature
5- SNAP on or off no effect
6- Nvidia Quadro FX 5800 driver update (in process)
Any other suggestions.
