Cannot see mouse pointer !?

by smit9192 / September 13, 2007 10:48 AM PDT

Hi guyz
i have a toshiba L25-S1193
Windows XP Home
512 MB RAM
Intel Celeron M

and many times when i am using my computer, the mouse pointer just randomly disappears (mostly after i close any running program) ! Once i hibernated the computer when this happened - and after turning on, i was able to see the mouse during the apparent "Log In" Window (but i was already logged on- screen after resuming from stand-by mode) but after clicking on my username and getting to my wallpaper, there was no mouse pointer!!
i do not understand why this is happening! Note: i could still use the mouse's effects tho! (ex. right clicking and clicking)

any help would be appreciated

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
