Try using the cursor (arrow keys). If they work, try cleaning the mouse ball, unscrews from the underneath, or change the mouse if optical.

Mouse cursor shown on desktop but it's not moving.

Remove the four screws from the bottom casing of the track ball. Carefully push the ball from the topside causing the case to come apart. Remove the ball and take an alcohol wipe and gently clean the area where the ball sits and the optical eye that the ball rest looks like a little window that is on the side of the area in which the ball rest in. Put ball back in the recess and put case back together. Replace screws and you should be good to go!

Cursor sliding off screen

I?ve had this problem in several Logitech mice. In every one of my cases the problem was resolved by uninstalling the driver and reinstalling the latest OR just using the default Windows driver. In some cases with USB mice I had to shut down the PC, remove the original mouse and replace with a standard PS2 mouse, remove and reinstall the driver and then reattach the USB mouse without rebooting. After a successful test you can shutdown the PC and remove the PS2 mouse. Let us know if that works and if you have any other questions and thanks in advance for rating this post.
