Mouse pointer vanished

  Jai 08:49 10 Mar 2004

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??

The solution was a re-nstall of ME as the mouse diver was corrupted. Why? heaven only knows!
