People using desktops/computers/pcs etc still continue to face several mouse pointer problems like

  • mouse pointer jumping around the screen
  • mouse pointer display issues
  • weird leaping mouse problems
  • mouse pointer sliding down the screen
  • mouse pointer zips to the corners
  • mouse pointer moving on its own

and many more!!

I recently observed a CD icon flashing next to mouse pointer, which I couldn’t find a solution immediately on googling the web. This happens only sometimes. So I researched on my own and found a solution.

I opened the Device Manager. (Control Panel -> Device Manager)

    Thank you for resolving my problem !!! My problem was that my cursor symbol (arrow/hand) had changed to a 7mm large CD icon symbol. . You inspired me to look in the Mouse Manager where I was able to change the setting back to the usual arrow/hand and it is all perfect again. Thank you!
