Mouse dissapears on hyperlinks.

By diskfailure ·
I have installed Win2000 Pro SP1 on a PIII gateway desktop. After installation my mouse disappears over hyperlinks, word doc, access and excel doc. I have deleted it and re-added it. Upgraded drivers, changed mouse types changed pointer types. Nothing works Please help.

Hi,

Have you checked for Viruses? That would be my next move...

This is an issue with most of the older ATI graphics cards. I am surprised that you did not notice this on another version of windows but it has been an ongoing problem. Please note, this does not happen using netscape as a browser, only IE.
Good luck!

Mike

Try to start in VGA Mode. If you don't have the problem there it's a display driver failure, as the folk described in answer2.
If you have the failure also with VGA Mode look for the Mousedriver and all the displayproperties with smoothing and all the stuff the world did not need.

Thanks. The adapter card was it. I went in and turned a dozen or so features and I could see my mouse again!!
