Unusual issue with mouse pointer.

Post by bwsmith25 »

Two things are going on with my mouse pointer.

1. When I move the mouse, it's slow to react - slower than normal. I've checked my mouse settings and they haven't changed since before this problem started a few days ago.

2. When I mouse over a menu, I don't see the mouse pointer. In the attached screenshot, you will see the mouse pointer, but when I took the screen shot I couldn't see it hovering over the menu item.

Anyone know what could be the issue, and how to resolve it? Thanks!

I'm not sure it'll work but there is one suggestion. Have you tried changing your mouse?

It worked for me when I had similar problems a while back.
