I am having an intermittent problem with my cursor. On occaision, it begins to flicker between the pointer and hourglass view. It still works, in that I can click on things, etc. but the flickering makes it difficult to use.
I can get it to stop only by rebooting the system.
I have tried removing and, with the help of a neighbor who knows more than I, re-installing the mouse.drv and msmouse.vxd files. This did not correct the problem. I then tried using a different mouse and had no problems for nearly a week until tonight, when my mouse decided to act up once again.
I have a Packard Bell Microsoft compatible
ps/2 port mouse on a Packard Bell Axcel 455cd with a 14.4 modem,850 HD and 16MB RAM. This problem first began after I upgraded from 8MB to 16MB RAM. (Which my neighbor installed for me.)
This problem sometimes goes days without occurring then, other times, occurs several times a session.
If you can help, please be specific, as my neighbor has moved away.
P.S. I posted this question once before but then to a computer glitch on your end, I could not get into the sight untill my question was reduced to 15 points with an unsatisfactory answer.
