All been fine for months until this week. The pointer does not appear on start up. Also the computer has started asking for a password to enter windows strangely!! when none was used before. 1. Swapped the mouse for a new one - still no pointer. 2. Boot in safe mode - pointer appeared but no movement. 3. Removed mouse from device mgr. - mouse found ok on boot up - but still no pointer. 4 Removed graphics card & reinstall - still no pointer. 5. Removed keyboard & reinstall - still no pointer An error message concerning ocraware keeps appearing (mother in laws computer)& asking to restart if the problem is not solved. The system is Win Me;AMD 2ghz; 256DDR; Soltek M/B; ATI 7000; Really baffled with this. Do re-install Me??
