    Cursor Disappearing Issue

    Hi. I have searched microsoft.com, these discussion groups, and all over the
    Internet and can't seem to find a solution to this issue. Hopefully, someone
    can assist me?:
    I recently purchased a new Dell Inspiron 1525, Vista installed, and when the
    computer arrived, I loaded my Office 2003 program. Everything works fine
    except the cursor. I've turned off "hide pointer while typing" and the
    cursor just disappears when I'm in any program, but I especially miss it when
    I'm in Word. I do a lot of cutting and pasting, and I can't use Word with
    just the arrow keys constantly. When on a program, or the internet, if the
    cursor is not hovering over a link or white space (i.e. when the cursor is on
    text only) it doesn't show up. This did not happen on my Dell 1100 with XP
    and Office 2003. Does anyone know of a fix for this?
    Thanks.

    Dunno - you might try picking a different pointer (mouse, pointer tab) if
    you haven't already tried that.....
