    All my Valve games have gone flaky in the last day. I start the game and I have no mouse pointer or it flickers on/off and I cannot select menu options, in some cases I cant even use keys to navigate to exit/quit game.. L4D, HL, Hl2 Ep2, Peggle are all affected but Far Cry nad Bio Shoch are not.

    any ideas?

    Hmm, sounds like a driver issue. Have you changed anything?

    Thanks JC316 for reply

    The only thing that has changed... looking at the restore points... Is I uninstalled FarCry Demo after installin full game from steam... But that game works fine??

    I installed latest logitech drivers 4.70 for my Mx518 with no change..

    Hmm, try reinstalling the video drivers. They may have gotten corrupted. Did you change the refresh rate of your monitor by chance?

    I have not changed drivers since I tried to install Cat 8.12 drivers and had issues. I have not changed anything. I have found that running L4D and HL2 in window rather than full screen they work just fine.

    I can live with this but It annoys me that something has changed but I cant figure it out??

    I'll try the drivers

    I set "pointer trails" ON and turning this off seems to have fixed issue
