I'm running Windows ME.
Upon startup of the computer AND/OR the computer game, Half-life2, the mouse cursor stutters and/or stops momentarily (30 - 60 seconds...sometimes a little longer). The stuttering/stopping of the mouse cursor has happen with the opening of other programs as well.
Here are the results for dxdiag:
DDraw Test Result: Failure at step 7 (User verification of fullscreen bouncing): HRESULT = 0x00000000 (error code)
D3D7 Test Result: All tests were successful.
D3D8 Test Result: All tests were successful.
D3D9 Test Result: All tests were successful.
Direct3D 7 test results: All tests were successful.
Direct3D 8 test results: All tests were successful.
Direct3D 9 test results: All tests were successful.
What I noticed when I run dxdiag: There's a test that ask if I observed a bouncing object (a square). I answer "no." I do, however, see a bouncing object (square), but there's another object of some sort (like a shadow of the square) bouncing (to the right) with it. (I hope I described it well enough for you!)
Someone please tell me what I can do to prevent my mouse cursor from stuttering and sticking.
