This is a custom cursor that has been setup by either:

A program on your computer
A custom cursor program like free cursors or something.

Check you computer for programs like "smiley cursors" or check the windows control panel and open Mouse settings to see if you have any custom pointers.

It is possible that.. instead of an hourglass.. somebody, or a program has set a custom pointer for your mouse.

The pointer changes to an hourglass in any windows setup by default when it wants you to wait for something that is happening in the background to finish processing.

Check for spyware and viruses as well.. customer cursor websites are great at getting people to install them and you get infected sometimes.

Windows is not loading have black screen with white cursor then goes to acer and fast out again to white cursor


Hello, doing a "last known good configuration" Works most of the time. Here is how to do it:

1. Make sure your computer is powered down.

2. Turn your computer on and immediately start pressing F8 on your keyboard repeatedly until you see a black screen with white writing that gives you a list of boot options.

3. Use the down arrow on your keyboard to select the Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced) option.

4. Press Enter on your keyboard and cross your fingers.

Good Luck!

My desktop pc window is jumping up and down. cannot control curser or jumping. intermittent problem.


What do you mean you can't control the cursor? Sounds like two different problems to me. The jumping is more than likely your monitor taking a ****. Check the monitor plug to be sure it is tight. Explain the cursor problem more is it the mouse cursor that won't move?

Acer Aspire M1100 beeps once occasionally, especially if screen 'frozen' and trying to get cursor to respond or scroll screen


The beep is a system fault beep. It is usually caused when your processor is acting at 100% and can't accept any more process at the moment. When you try to get the computer to do more than what it is, you will get a beep letting you know you have to wait.

Laptop Touchpad - cursor random dragging problem


On my acer all I have to do is press function F7, Function is the button with 'Fn' on it. I am not sure if that works for HP, but its worth a try. Also, is there a switch near the touchpad? Sometimes there is one that switches the touch pad on and off. You can also try other Fn(function) F1 or Fn F2 etc. and see if one of the other "f" buttons work.  I hope this helps, let me know how you made out. Good Luck!
