Surface Pro mouse cursor unresponsive and drift

When I try to play games like STARCRAFT II or Heroes of Newerth in Full Screen mode on my Surface Pro Windows 8 tablet, everything works fine except the mouse cursor does not respond and rides around behind the screen. I can make left/right click on the screen using the USB mouse, and use the pen to create a practice during gaming, but I can’t see the mouse cursor. Sometimes the cursor icon is stuck there. How can I fix the issues on Surface pro?

The cursor works in windowed mode. If you load games in full screen, it ran very smoothly and cursor is not working. Changing into windowed runs very choppy.
