I am having a problem while browsing the web. With no warning the cursor disappears,I wait and wiggle the mouse,sometimes you can loose where the cursor is,but it just is not there. Everything is ok after using ctrl/alt delete to restart.I have cleaned the mouse as I thought this might have been the problem but with no luck. Using win98 and Firefox ...any suggestions? Geoff47
I did try updating the drivers ....first thing I did...it said the best drivers are in use already .....no I did clean it first...sorry. Its a Intellimouse 12APS/2 compatible...if my eyes dont decieve me. Should I just get a new mouse? they are cheap enough...the simple ones are anyway.
Been there,when I was using 98se.I found my pointer most often misbehaved in the top left quarter of the screen.I swapped drivers around,reinstalled 98se,and even bought another mouse.The new mouse worked fine for awhile,then the same problem occurred.I could only locate the pointer by clicking a button on the mouse,this eventually led to several occasions where the webpage was closed,extremely annoying if I'd just typed a big long response to a thread. :-)
I think it was caused by the graphics card driver,but I never completely sussed this problem out,just recollect that it started after updating graphics.(it might have been Nero too,as I said,I never truely worked out the problem)
Dont know if I should thank you or not Chegs....any advance on how I should go about the drivers...uninstall then install new ones or just install the new ones? I thought messing about could cause more problems.
The trouble with my problem is that it happens erratically....I have had it occur maybe three times...and cannot replicate it to see if any fix has solved it. I have done as Woodchip said and it was reinstalled as normal without asking any imformation...so all I can do is wait until it happens again to know if it has been sorted out or not......hopefully it wont happen again. So when do I tick...I am an eternal optimist?
