Cursor disappeared


Here are two things I would try, not knowing your version of Windows:

1. Open Device Manager, double-click each "USB Root Hub, and under the "Power Management" tab, deselect "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".
2. In Control Panel, (depending on your version of Windows) either:
A. Open Display Properties, Settings tab, Settings button, Troubleshoot, lower the mouse acceleration to see if that prevents the pointer from disappearing. This is from memory.. I don't have an XP machine running right now.
B. Open the Mouse applet, under "Pointer Options", select "Show the location of the pointer when I press the CTRL key". If there's a way to lower graphics hardware acceleration in Window 7, I can't find it.

Tip

Locate your Corsur In Windows 7


To turn on the Cursor feature in Windows 7, go to your desktop and RIGHT CLICK on the DESKTOP displayed and in the drop down window CLICK on PERSONALIZE and when the next window opens CLICK on CHANGE MOUSE POINTER. Then on the next window select POINTER OPTIONS tab. Next put a check mark in SHOW LOCATION OF POINTER and click OK.
Now when you press CTL, a circle will flash briefly to show you where the cursor is.

Hope this will be of some help in finding your cursor. Bud

My guide might help you, it's worth a try, it is entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Sounds like a windows error though, some how the installation may have been corrupted. I suggest performing a virus scan on a test PC. An alternative is to take it in to a computer technician.

Thanking you

You can adjust your pointer's moving speed by going on control panel from My computer. Click on mouse option. Drag the cursor as high as you want your mouse pointer's speed. Save the changes.

Does dskchck & freezes if cancelled goes black & only cursor show


That's a common problem with Vista...you'll need to restart your computer. Start back up in safe mode...by pressing F8 at the boot screen. then restart your computer normally through the start menu. After this I would find a good copy of Windows XP Professional and back up my data, and install XP over vista.

I have an acer netbook and occasionally i get a weird symbol when i move my cursor. it's almost like a bullseye. it pauses my cursor until it goes away and then in can continue. what is this?


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.
