Stuck cursor

  sajeev 22:19 18 Nov 2008

My cursor is stuck in the middle of my screen. I changed the mouse to a new one, but it made no difference.
I am using XP Home. I haven't added any new software.
Any help appreciated.

happened to me once "marmalade" bugger to get off!!!

have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling the device, you could also try a different way to connect your mouse USB or PS/2...

Wired or wireless mouse?

Thanks MA and DS
wired mouse with PS2. Does not have an USB option.
Does not show on device manager.
Light on mouse comes on when plugged into green port.
How does one install uninstall the device?

don't know if a system restore would make any difference if it's not even listed in device manager,could be worth a try.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you all.
As suggested by you, the PS2 port was at fault.
Got a USB mouse, and USB port expander (I had only two USB ports-both occupied) and now everything is fine.
Thanks to all
