Mouse Cursor Appearing During Some Games Windows 8 X64

Feb 28, 2013

Sometimes when I am playing a game in fullscreen with the 360 controller, the mouse cursor will appear on the screen where I last left it. I have to jiggle the mouse and it will go away, but it comes back periodically. In games where I am using a mouse with a special look during the game, I can see flickers of the regular white windows mouse cursor. At first I thought it was just happening in Steam Big Picture Mode, but it is happening in all games.

When watching Netflix and Amazon Prime, in full-screen mode, I cannot eliminate the progress bar at the bottom, even though the mouse is off of the screen.

Is there a way to make the progress bar disappear?

Making the mouse cursor disappear would be one way. But how?

Windows 8 Stuck At Black Screen (with Mouse Cursor) After Deleting Linux Partition

Aug 15, 2014

I have a problem in my dual boot machine. I decided to remove Linux mint 17 from my dual boot with windows 8.
I used easeus partition manager to delete the partitions associated (root, home and swap). Then I got unallocated space just before my windows partition. So I moved my windows partition to the extreme left possible. Then I merged this unallocated space with my second storage partition.

These steps required reboot (specifically the moving of windows partition). When I rebooted my PC I got an error that grub was not found. I realized that I had forgot to fix MBR and load windows boot loader. So I used windows 7 recovery disk (yes windows 7 as I don't have windows8 recovery or installation disk). I got a windows 7 style boot loader instead of windows 8's graphical one which has advanced recovery options built in. But I proceeded. Then eases did its job with the partitions. After a reboot now I am stuck at a black screen after entering my password with a movable mose cursor. I can only press Ctrl+alt+del. Selecting task manager from it does nothing.

Since I don't have windows 8 disks and windows 8 boot loader I am not able to refresh or reset my PC. Neither can I shift restart my PC to get advanced boot options. One more thing to note, that while entering password, I noticed that the lock screen and account pictures have changed to defaults of a freshly installed windows.

Debugging :: Windows 8.1 - BSOD Appearing Often / No Particular Trigger For It

Aug 2, 2014

I just formatted & installed Windows 8.1 on my laptop. I'm getting a lot of BSODs.

All of them "Critical Structure Corruption", can't quite pin-point anything specific. I've been installing some programs I use, etc.
Just now - it actually BSOD'ed while I was running the SF Diagnostic tool!

I have an Acer Aspire 5820, Core i3.

Media File Tag Data Not Appearing In Windows Explorer

Nov 27, 2012

I recently installed Windows 8. I noticed that at some point the media tags stopped displaying in Windows Explorer for media files such as mp3 and m4b. I am talking about such tags as "title" , "bitrate" and "length" for audio files, for example. Previously this data always displayed for the same files.

This affects my collection of Music and Audio books which I am doing some housekeeping with. I can't sort mp3 and m4b them according to the tags that had been set in iTunes or mp3 tagger.

This has always worked previously and the tags have displayed fine.

I am using the "Detailed" viewing mode in Windows Explorer, but it is just empty in the columns where the tag should be, even for files which I know are tagged, and where the tag displayed previously, in Windows Explorer.

Here is what I found :

I ran sfc /scannow, but this did not solve the problem. I tried installing a shell extension called AudioShell135.exe which supposedly fixes problems with this, but it does not work for 64 bit OS. I read that a DLL called shmedia.dll is responsible for this functionality. Apparently some people re-registered this wisuccess when they had this problem. I did that, but it did not work either.

Could this be a regression in Win 8 or can others see the tag data for their mp3 files?

Security :: Windows 8.1 - Unknown Network Devices Appearing Despite Firewalls

Jul 24, 2014

I'm a new Windows 8.1 user. Over the past two days two separate unknown network devices have appeared under 'This PC' in Windows Explorer (see screenshot below for the current one, along with its properties window). It appears people are able to access this computer - so a big problem!

As far as I can tell, all my security settings are in place (password on wireless network, all sharing disabled in Network and Sharing Centre, Windows Firewall is active, Windows Media Sharing is off).

How to close what I assume is a security loophole?

Acer Iconia W510 PC Tablet / Windows 8 - Blue Screen Appearing For No Reason?

Mar 6, 2014

I have an Acer Iconia W510 PC Tablet and I am talking about this error right here. [URL] ....

Okay, so this started appearing and I got a little worried. Each time it happens, I go through a restart and am just fine. So, I started to think about why it appeared. Then it happened more often. I'd say it pops up for no apparent reason every couple days, sometimes more frequent.

Every day, I do the following:

- Run Disk Cleanup
- Run Defrag
- Do a Manual Full System Scan with Norton Antivirus

I do all of these things and try to never download shady files, but it happens all the time. Sometimes it will be when I'm talking to someone on Skype (Text, not Video), or in an app like One Note or OK Cupid Touch.

It happens so frequently that I feel like there is something I'm missing.

Cursor Goes Invisible After Login Windows 8

Jul 4, 2014

When I turn on my computer, I get to the login screen, click in the field and type in my password. When the login completes, my cursor disappears. I can still see it highlighting things I mouse-over, I can click on things and right click and do everything normally except for the fact that I cannot actually see the cursor. If I Ctrl Alt Del, the mouse is again visible, but as soon as I got back to to desktop or start screen, the cursor goes invisible again. I have tried messing with the mouse trails and enlarging the cursor, selecting a different cursor, re installing drivers and system restore however, system restore was not successful.

When I try to do a system restore, it says that windows is missing files but that I may insert my installation disk to recover these files. Upon doing so, it says my disk in invalid. The disk is in perfect condition and is the exact disk I used to install windows in the first place. At this point the mouse is still invisible. I then went to My Computer and ran the disk from there. Out of nowhere, the cursor appears and everything seems to be normal. After turning the computer off and back on however, the cursor again disappears until I run my windows installation disk. I've tried this 3 times now and every time inserting the disk causes the cursor to reappear. My theory (which may be wildly incorrect) is that when running the installation disk, it loads the proper files into the RAM which allows my cursor to be visible. As soon as the computer looses power, those files are gone and thus the cursor is no longer visible. This makes sense, (at least to me) except for the fact that the cursor is visible on both the login screen and in the Ctrl Alt Del screen.

Windows 8.1 Preview Pro On Reboot - Only Cursor

Jul 28, 2013

I just installed a clean install of Windows 8.1 Preview Pro on my laptop (HP DV9000) and I've been coming back and forth to the forum and getting my questions answered by reading all the post about my problems and it worked. I've come across one problem that's frustration to say the least and it's really annoying.

Now that when I reboot my laptop it boots just fine and now the blank black screen comes on with just the cursor present. I've waited and even rebooted a few times and it's still the same.

Gateway Windows 8 Cursor / Keyboard Not Working

Jul 12, 2014

I have a Gateway laptop with windows shut itself down and has done this before with no issues. The computer loaded and is at the start page where all the apps are listed. I cannot use the doesn't show up. When it goes to sleep usually I can hit the space bar and it responds..but nothing...seem the whole key board is frozen. I have tried the function keys for the cursor and nothing...I have taken my mouse from my other computer to try to use it in the lap top and nothing...I have turned the computer off and on..still nothing.

I use my laptop for work and I am frustrated now that I can't get in to it. It seems locked somehow or stuck. When I hit F1 it does open the desktop page and I see the box appear but I can't click on it. The only way to wake the computer up to see the screen I unplug or replug the power cord in. Other than that it seems to go back to sleep.

Windows 8 Won't Boot Up / Black Screen With Cursor

Aug 4, 2014

My laptop has been acting really weird the last couple of weeks. It would crash randomly, and sometimes when I picked it up to put it somewhere else, it crashed too.

Now, I thought this was a problem with Windows 8.1, because it didn't behave like this before with normal Windows 8. So I Refreshed my laptop, and after that it worked again, without crashing.

I left it in sleep mode while I got some sleep too, and when I booted it up this morning, it crashed again.

After that the whole laptop wouldn't boot up, and now the only thing that shows is a cursor on a black screen, and it seems to be stuck in sleep mode, because I can't even turn it off completely manually. So I can't access the BIOS or make it boot up in Safe Mode.What the hell should I do?

Taskbar Inconsistently Appearing In ModernUI?

Apr 8, 2014

I just installed all the updates contained in 8.1 update 1. I like the way the taskbar pops up in Modern UI, but it seems inconsistent.

If I use the 'Start button' to switch to the Store, and I keep the mouse on the taskbar, the taskbar stays. If I move off it, it disappears. If I move the mouse back to the bottom of the screen, the majority of the time nothing happens. If I wiggle the mouse around at the bottom of the screen, after a while the taskbar appears. Sometimes, when I move off the taskbar, it doesn't disappear immediately.

Tablets :: Cursor Disappear When Switch From One Windows Account To Another

Oct 7, 2013

I've got a problem with my cursor disappearing when I switch from one Windows account to another. The older account got set up this past Christmas when I got the computer and the newer one got set up a couple of weeks ago. I had no problem with either account until today: now, suddenly, I'm finding that when I switch to the newer account, the cursor just flat-out disappears and doesn't come back for love or money. This leaves me unable to do very much of anything except switch back to the older account, where my cursor usually reappears. But as soon as I go back to the newer account, I've lost the cursor and can't make it come back.

For months now, I've been frustrated by the apparent oversensivity of the gesture interpretation on the touchpad. I innocently move a finger along the touchpad to get it from A to B and find that it gets interpreted as a wish to scroll or bring up a context menu or whatever. So yesterday, I disabled all but the single-finger gestures. The problem seems to have begun right after that. After various reboots and other experiments to get my cursor back on the newer account, I finally decided to re-enable the gestures as they had been on the theory that perhaps that was causing my cursor problems.

Any way to keep my cursor from disappearing in the second Windows account? And if you know how to keep the touchpad from reacting to every minute movement and interpreting it is an attempted-gesture when it is just me moving my hand.

The laptop is an ASUS K55N, which was new at 2012.

Windows 8 - Cursor Jumps Back To A Position Where Already Typed?

Mar 11, 2013

After finishing a big job for a friend using Windows 8, I now have some questions that I would like to getting a better understanding of. If one is working with the tiles interface, is there any way after exiting a tile; of going back to the tile interface instead of the desktop?If there is, I appear not to have found it yet.

Next I have noticed that while typing on the Internet using any browser really, I have noticed sometimes the cursor jumps back to a position where I have already typed. Have not been able to find any info on this to set up remote access for me network? Having never tried it before. Also need the same type of info for possibly setting up a vpn as I am starting to travel a lot and what is involved I doing so.

Windows 8.1 Black / Blank Screen After Login - No Cursor

Jul 31, 2014

I shut down my computer last night. It runs 8.1 and when I shut it down I do not believe it installed updates.i tried to boot it. It boots and after I type in my PIN, shows my desktop for a few seconds. Then, my display will either turn black or a blueish grey. There is no cursor. It does this every reboot now. I can not do anything except reset when it happens.

System info:

Two GTX 760's in SLI
Two Asus monitors

Possible culprits:

1 - I have Actual Multiple Monitors trial installed. The freezing/display blanking seems to happen when the trial time left window shows up, but that may be coincidence.
2 - I heard graphics card driver updates and windows updates can clash in some way and cause a similar issue. From what I've read, a cursor is still on screen and task manager can be opened with CTRL SHIFT ESC. Neither of these work for me.
3- Virus? I have avast so I doubt it.

Windows 8 Screen Freezing With Just Cursor / Login Missing

Apr 1, 2013

I have had Windows 8 since it came out and a little while after I started having issues with it not waking up/randomly freezing. I reinstalled 8 and for a while I have not had any trouble but now I am having issues again.

Basically the computer randomly freezes... but not really. So certain things don't work like opening or closing applications but the cursor can still be moved. Eventually most things won't work but again the cursor is still moveable.

Then again tonight it happened when I got home from work. This is the same problem as before. My computer was left on and locked and when I returned the logon is missing but my cursor is there and moveable.

I have been trying to fix this since the last time it occurred and still cannot find why this is happening. I have the latest drivers, ran scans with Bitdefender and Malwarebytes, checked the event log but nothing shows up from the time I left to the time I got home. I've attached a picture showing the screen frozen with just the cursor and no username/password on the screen.
