The mouse cursor does not display in Windows Media Player

When I start Media Player I don't see the cursor of the mouse to control anything. I use the Task Manager to close the windows media player.


I suggest that you update mouse drivers to their latest version. Don't simply check Windows Update, but the Logitech site as well.

If this does not help, then run the SFC scan once more with your installation of Vista DVD inserted in the computer. He is able to repair the missing and corrupt files then?

  • The mouse pointer is not displayed in Windows 8.

    original title: 8 the mouse pointer disappears NOT associated with the applications screen

    Windows 8 64-bit running on TORDRE of Lenovo tablet 3347CTO with external monitors.

    Sometimes, the mouse pointer disappears from the office.  He is always there, because I can find it by pressing CTRL (I have "use CTRL to locate mice" clicked to fix somewhere).  It will activate a program if the invisible pointer is on the icon for this program.  It reappears when you move, but only when moving.  I'm going behind the screen applications (starting) to do this. As I know it has nothing to do with any specific program.  Only way to recover is to restart the computer.  It's extremely annoying, any suggestions would be most appreciated.

    I fell right on the problem.

    Use the Windows key + P to pass between the double screen and return to the single screen mode and returns the pointer.

    Play with the mouse settings did not help.  I think it's a problem of display driver.

    Hope this helps others.

  • Skins for Windows does not apply on Windows Media Player 11

    I use Windows Media Player 11 for Vista 64 bit and I download a skin and try to apply it to every time it won't work. It only works if I double click the skin file and I won't continue to do it every time. I tried to look for answers to this problem of alreadt, but every single response is to go to and it does not at all help.

    Hi Matt,

    You save the skin before applying it or run it directly?

    If you save the skin before applying, you must double-click it to apply. Other wise, you must change the mouse settings to use the single click.

  • MP4 does not work in Windows Media Player

    I'm working on a project that has videos on built-in slides.

    When I save the project as a swf or exe file, it works fine. I need as an mp4. When I try to record it in a mp4, it works on a mac computer, but not on a Windows computer. I tried on Windows 7 and Windows 8. On Windows 7, I get a message saying "Windows Media Player has stopped working". On Windows 8, the message says "element not found."

    Some Captivate mp4s works; others do not. I don't understand what the difference is. Videos seem to better operate the videos embedded in the slides.

    I use 6 Captivate. I create projects on Windows 7.

    Thank you

    I got it work. All I had to do was resize the project to a smaller size.

  • music files in .aiff format with encoded path names, but are not displayed in Windows Media Player or iTunes.

    I have several CDs with music files engraved on them, but when I play one any of them in WMP or iTunes, music plays, but each track does not have a name.  They appear as the track track 01, 02, etc.. The music files are in .aiff format. Now, here's the clincher, the same CD will play in my car stereo and display the name of the track.

    Are you sure that they are in the format .aiff? It looks more like an actual audio CD for me (in this case, the music files will have a .cda extension when displayed in Windows Explorer).

    If it's an audio CD, then it probably has info CD-text engraved on it. You can install the plugin WMPCDText allowing WMP read this info. Unfortunately, there doesn't exist a plugin similar to iTunes.
