What are the causes of the log of user account on missing cursor in Windows XP? I have two trays of office that they have this same problem. If you restart them the cursor returns?


Hi DaddyJeff,

1. don't you make changes before the show?
2. are you referring to the cursor in the area of user password on the login screen of Windows?
3. when the cursor goes missing, the mouse pointer works on screen?

It is difficult to say what is causing this problem. If the mouse pointer freezes or stops working, then we recommend you to reinstall the mouse. To do this, try the following steps:
a. sign in to Windows.
b. Click Start, click Run, type devmgmt.msc, and then click ok.
c. in the list of objects, expand mice and other pointing devices.
d. right click on the sub element and click on uninstall.
e. unplug the mouse and plug it back.
f. the Device Manager, select an item in the list, click the Action menu, click scan for hardware changes.
g. check if the mouse is detected, if so, then install it.

See mouse USB which is connected to a USB 2.0 hub is not detected by Windows XP

if the problem persists, restore the computer to an earlier time. See How to restore Windows XP to a previous state

  • PlayReady update was Incomplete.You will not be able to watch or record content protected until the is qualified. Everyone I have this same problem and found a solution?

    I clean installed 2 x times the RC of windows 7 pro x 64. Both times I got this error in media center. I manually downloaded the playready 1.3 program. I can record my channels satalite with no problems so I don't understand why he repeats the above message. However, I am worried that when the DRM updates for the satalite it won't work and I won't be able to update. I have not changed anything in the hardware level in the computer as so he wouldn't because he thinks it's another computer. Any help would be appreciated.

    Clarification on this: summer working on this issue for more than 2 months on 4 computers, that's what I found.

    Note: Not all the patches will work on a pc due to various stages of updates, patches, etc. No matter what anyone says or claims. What works for me, the other person or even technical support, may not be due to a strange configuration on your pc. Nevertheless, that's what I did on the final 3 computers that have no auto update of the readyplay.

    (1) get to the point in media center it says Readyplay failed to update, you want to try again.

    (OPTIONAL) Download the tool from Microsoft DRM Reset, change in Compatibility Mode for Windows 7 (or any version of Windows), run the tool as admin. He must install and say successful.

    (2) open Windows "Services" via the control panel > administrative tools > Services.

    (3) with Media Center open and show "the PlayReady update was incomplete. Do you want to retry? "Goto Control Panel"Services"you just opened and scroll all the way" Services Windows Media Center Receiver ", double-click it, and then click on"Stop ".

    4) navigate to the folder ReadyPlay HIDDEN (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\PlayReady), and THEN Delete the mspr.hds file.

    (5) return to the OPEN & CONTINUES, Media Center and click 'Yes' and 'Next' to the question of the PlayReady update. He should immediately zip past and say update complete & you can watch and record copy-protected blah blah blah. It can also update a guide or something too.

    If this doesn't work for you after that 5-6 tests, you have something to another block you, but you don't have need for both 32 bit and 64 bit PlayReady installed to update. This is the 'Service' which is really prevents the update, but simply stop w/o those other steps do not work >.

    Good luck!

  • I am unable to respond to the comments of youtube on Firefox (I checked and have this same problem on Internet Explorer, but can it on Chrome). Help.

    Hi guys, I may make comments of youtube, but am unable to respond to them (and not to others, not to those who responded to my comments, not even to my own comments) on Firefox (or IE), but can do on Chrome. The reply button is there and I am able to click on it, and when I click on it the normal 'answer box' is displayed, but the cursor is not displayed and I am not able to type in the answer box. I guess it seems almost as if the response box is not load completely? I don't know what the issue is and cannot be found in the online help. What is cache memory? I emptied recently however (because of other problems, I got on youtube, not that it helped).

    What are the causes of this error?

    Hello aviadCielo,

    When you get this error, what does do to make it work again? If you restart your program, start all this work?

    Secondly, what version of NOR-XNET do you use? It's maybe a software problem that could be resolved by upgrading to NOR-XNET 1.6.

    Finally, can you reproduce this problem with a simple program? If so, you can join the program you use?

  • When I close a program, it seems that the page is molten! What are the causes that

    Just as I said, when I close my Internet explore the page looks as it melts down.

    When I close the Office computer looks like it is melting.

    What are the causes and how can I fix what is wrong

    I ran mcafee and malware programs.

    I have compaq presario v5000

    Windows xp

    32 bit

    do not add ons running.

    I don't see how someone can offer you promising ideas knowing more about your system.  The best you can get is speculation on what might work sometimes maybe. All we seem to know is what sort of a Presario V5000 with XP (there are a lot of different V5000s).

    It worked better in Mode safe or clean boot?  Even if it did, this does not your problem, unless you want to run mode without failure or boot for the rest of your life.

    If you restored to the factory settings in the past, then you have all your video drivers updated?  Chances are good that everything that comes out of the plant is outdated when it leaves the factory.

    If I were you, I would first take a look at your specifications and make sure that your video drivers are up to date.

    Should be considered ditching of McAfee (since it's a famous memory and CPU hog) and replace it with something with a smaller footprint like Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE).  You can simply use the McAfee uninstaller install temporarily and see how things work... you can always reinstall later if you are forced to do it, right?  (but I wouldn't).

    If you still have the problem after all and the verification of your video drivers, check the properties of your system performance (especially the Visual effects) Options.

    Why don't you do this so that we can see what you have:

    Click Start, run and enter in the box:


    Click OK, and when the system info summary appears, click on edit, select all (Ctrl-A), copy (Ctrl-C) and paste (Ctrl-V) the information back here in your next reply.

    For video device and driver information, expand components, click view, click on edit, select all, copy and then paste the information here.

    There will be some personal information (such as the user name and the name of the system), and anything that turns information private for you, simply delete the pasted information.

    This will minimize back Q & A and eliminate guesswork.

  • What are the causes the limit 2 Gig Ram in m1170n Media Center computer?

    What are the causes the limit 2 Gig Ram in m1170n Media Center computer? It can be corrected? Makes for a much slower PC than it could be. I can update only 1 3/4 Gig and yet it can begin.  I tried the bios update that is available on this site, but it doesn't seem to change anything. It would be much nicer I could date within the limits of the operating system. 4 GB. Don't know what I'll use this 4 PC yet, but this could be the deciding factor.

    Here are the specifications of your HP Media Center m1170n desktop computer and its card mother PTGD1-(Puffer). Based on the specifications, this model has a maximum HP approved limit memory 4 GB (4 x 1 GB = 4 GB). The problem you are experiencing is perhaps due to incorrect memory modules, modules of memory defective or damaged, defective or damaged memorty slots or a very defective or damaged motherboard.

    Run the available at startup BIOS Diagnostics or download "memtest86" and create a bootable media. Then, run the test on each module individually, in the same housing. If all modules pass, rerun the test... this time by adding an additional module... Repeat until all slots are filled and all modules of memory are used.

  • What are the causes of temporary profiles?

    What are the causes and how can I get my original profile once again?

    You may find that the problem is temporary and you connect properly on your next reboot.

    Advice on that is in difficulty a user profile damaged and this may also be of interest the user profile Service has no logon. Could not load user profile as you will see, there is the coincidence of the AV utility read the profile at the same time that Windows 7 trying to read and cela can cause a one-time default to a temporary profile.

    Even if the problem goes away once you are back connected with a suitable profile, create two admin accounts to make sure that you have a good chance to be still able to enter the PC all that is corrupt.  If your user account profile is corrupt, you use an admin to fix things, if an administrator account is corrupt then you use the other admin to fix things, including the creation of a new account admin spare.
