Hello,
I been having a problem with random games, such as supreme commander 1, and 2 demo, ruse beta, and a few others, what happens is the game runs perfect but no matter the video settings the mouse cursor is froze in the lower left middle area, but when i move the mouse i can still select options but the mouse is invisible, but the cursor is still froze on the side. Very annoying. Any thoughts? and ive tried dells recommended drivers and the most recent nvidia ones.
I Have a xps 1730 laptop, windows 7 64bit homepremium, 2.4ghzcore2duo, 4 gigs of ram, dual geforce 9700m GTX.

Its not the hardware, because I can still select menu options, but the cursor is visible but frozen, but the hardware works but the cursor is invisible, i have to move the mouse around till the menu option is highlighted, takes a while to guess where it is.

Does the same thing happen if you unplug your mouse and use your touchpad?

Try changing the resolution settings in the game.

FOUND THE PROBLEM, saw this thread earlier, my problem was the TEXT FONT WAS AT 150%, CHANGE IT BACK TO DEFAULT in display properties.

Thanks, this helped me, too. I had the problem with SimCity Societies.

Curious is that it works on both 100% and 125%, but not on 150%. So I tried to set it to 149% and it worked, too!
