The cursor is not mouse controlled in safe mode. If I'm reading you correctly, when you boot in safe mode, use the arrow keys to move down to "Safe Mode". Then, when the PC boots in Safe Mode, the mouse cursor will work.
I am using a year old pc with xp home loaded. The kids have changed some settings and when trying to fix it i've made things worse.
The nvidia 6800 graphics card asked if I wanted to use monitor 1 or 2. I only have 1 monitor and I chose monitor 2 option.
Now when the pc is swithed on you can see windows loading then a blank screen appears and nothing else happens.
Have tried to load in safe mode, but when I have the safe mode screen on I cannot move the cursor to "safe mode"
How can I start my pc again?
