This may not sound applicable, but what kind of mouse or
trackball are you using?

Please loose the CAPS...

You left out the video card which may be the most important for your
display problems, what is it so we can point you to its manufacturer's
web site so you can update its drivers...

You are right Katy regarding the video card. I mentioned
the trackball only because two of us have had the identical
sysptoms, which were corrected by removing Kensington's
kwm_run.exe from MSCONFIG StartUp. I have no idea why.

No stranger that animated mouse pointers or shadow causing rendering
problems in FS 3D mode... :-)
