Not quite sure what category my query fits under as I don't know if it is a software problem, or a video driver problem, so I appologise if this is the wrong forum. The problem I have is that several games that the kids like to play (oh alright, I like to play as well ) have a black spot under the mouse pointer. it's about an inch in diameter and the mouse pointer is in the centre of the spot, and it makes it extreemly difficult to accurately click on the screen. I'm running WinXP pro SP2 on a 2.4Gh P4, PowerColor AIW 9800SE AGP video card with the driver that unlocks the extra 4 pipelines. (I got it from techpowerup) I have tried setting Windows compatibily mode, none of my google searches have turned up anyone else with a similar problem. Does any one have any idea where this spot is comming from and how do I make it go away?
