Mouse Doesn't Move - Screen Goes Blank

Windows 7 ultimate 64bit seem to just 'lock up', by 'lock up' i mean the mouse (razer mamba) doesn't move, the keyboard (logitech g19)'s screen goes black, the 'windows key' doesn't work, the keys don't light up and alt+ctrl+del don't work, my game pad (logitech g13) doesn't work, webcam (logitech orb) doesn't work or light up.

I have tried as many things as i can think of, re-installing the os, putting my computer at stock settings (i had gpu, cpu and ram overclocked), re-installing the os, i have disabled the 'usb selective suspend setting' i have tried reverting to the vista 64bit drivers, 'checking' the computer memory, replacing the hard drive with a new one, tried doing this 'clean boot' thing, still no luck.

Disappearing Mouse Pointer

After a while of using my laptop, my mouse pointer gets uncontrollable for a few seconds. After it starts disappearing or moving objects, maximizing and minimizing for a few seconds it (sometimes) goes back to normal for about a minute and starts acting erratic again. This will go on for hours or until i get frustrated and shut down my system. Is this happening with any other users. If so please tell me how to fix this problem, i am tired of losing unsaved data. I lost seven chapters the other night.

Mouse Pointer Madness

Has anyone else found that sometimes in the win 7 rc that there mouse pointer sometimes goes funny. Basically the pointer becomes small parts of itself repeated a hand full of times. So basically you have around 8 pointy bits of the cursor repeated vertically. It seems to be a intermittent problem, i don't have it all the time and the functionality remains, it's just quite annoying. Basically is there a solution to this problem or is my machine just being a pain, and i have to live with it :p.

No Taskbar Or Mouse Pointer On Reboot

I have repeatedly attempted to install win 7 home professional on my intel i7 machine with an ati radeon 4870 graphics card. Many times on rebooting the screen appears normal but there is no taskbar or mouse pointer. At other times, the computer booted normally and allowed me to install programs. Now i am frozen out at described above. I suspect a driver conflict, since i can still boot in safe mode with a normal taskbar and desktop icons.

My machine did pass the windows 7 upgrade advisor test and has 12g of ram.

Dual Monitors Mouse Pointer Problem

Windows 7.nvidia geoforce 8500 gt. I have the latest nvidia drivers and control panel. I have two monitors; 1 on left, 2 on right. I have no trouble setting them up, but the indicated physical position on the computer is reversed; ie monitor 2 is on left, monitor 1 is on right. The problem is that i want the mouse pointer to move to the right to get from from 1 to 2. As it is.

If i am on monitor 1 (physically on left) i have to move my pointer to the left to get on the right monitor (monitor 2). This is opposite of what logic calls for. I have jiggled my cables every way i can think of, to no avail.

Black Screen With The Pointer

I have a dell inspiron 1525 i recently upgraded to win 7 from vista. It was working fine then after updating adobe cs3 the laptop froze causing me to force a shutdown. When i booted the pc again i started normally and after the splash screen i reached a black screen with the pointer. I don't even get the option to login. All of the advanced options are getting me to the same point. Even trying to boot into safe mode just gets me to the black screen and pointer.

I do not have a win 7 disk, the upgrade was done as a download and i never received a disk in the mail. I can't get to the serai key to order another disk, luckily i can still use the pc, because i have a linux installation on the same drive. I can't use the shell fix that seems to be omnipresent on the internet, as i can't get to any of the windows screens.

Screen Goes Blank

After i have updated my computer from xp to win7 i have been experiencing a strange thing. My screen goes blank after 60 seconds of inactivity.initially when it happened i saw that my graphic card driver (nvidia geoforce 8400gs) was not updated - which was also causing some blue screen errors. After i updated the drivers the blue screen error went away but the blank screen error sort of comes and goes. It stays for some time (a week or something) and then goes away for a month etc. Two reasons i could think of.

1. Power options - everything set to "never"
2. Graphics drivers - up to date

Any idea why i would be seeing this ?

Blank Screen After Upgrade

During the upgrade from vista ultimate to windows 7 ultimate the screen went blank so i am not even sure that win 7 installation was successful. As i could see nothing on the screen i waited 5 hours until my pc went absolutely quiet with no sign of installation activity. I then did a hard reboot. The pc powers up and powers down 3 times before staying on, but the screen remains blank as the monitor is in power saving mode. I have tried everything to get the monitor out of power saving mode but cannot change it.

This means that i cannot boot into any mode (safe mode included) as i have no monitor picture. I carried out the ~win advisor tests and removed all programs it suggested. The only thing i could not remove was the "ati catalyst control centre and install manager" each time i tried to remove them i got the message that setup.exe was not responding, so i could not remove them. How can i get my monitorto come on without being in power saving mode, and if not, is there any other way i can boot into safe mode which will switch the monitor on?

Video Driver Causes Blank Screen

Running w7 ult 64, just did complete install. Ati raedon 3200 chips integrated with motherboard. Have 3 3200 driver versions on computer (one from ms and two from ati) and have tried them all, when the 3200 drivers are installed the display goes to a solid - nothing showing- black screen. Have to disable ati drivers and use vga to get screen images. Have installed the v 9. 12 catalyst programs/drivers & the version which ati has for the motherboard.

This hardware was working in the vista home premium 64 version.

I'm out of ideas, any thoughts?

Blank Screen After Installing Win 7

I have been wrestling with windows 7 to get it to run on my new machine i just built, apparently i have the upgrade only version, so i had to install vista then windows 7, etc. Then when i got that running yesterday windows tells me my cd key, that i have physically in my hand, on the original box, is invalid. I check the error code online, find out that i need to call microsoft to activate it over the phone, because i have used it too many times in a certain time frame. All of these uses are re-formats by the way.

So, today when i tried to log into windows so i could get the error code window again, and make my phone call to microsoft my windows won't start. I get past the "windows is loading" screen, with the four floating balls that form the windows logo, and it loads my mouse pointer, and a black screen. And then, nothing. I let it sit for over an hour, still nothing, i try ctrl-alt-delete to get it working on something, maybe kick start the load, nothing. I loaded all fail safe settings in my bios and then ran it in safe mode, still the same result. I honestly have no idea where to go with this next.

Blank Screen On Restart With A Cursor Blinking

I have a inspiron 1545 and when i restart with a verizon wireless modem plugged in to a usb port & it gives me a blank screen with a cursor blinking in the top left corner. When i pull it out on restart it boots. However, when i start it with it plugged in it works fine. I know the problem is my computer because my wife has the same 1545 and no problem. I can work around by pulling it, on restart but it seems my computer has a problem.

Also, upon further testing it is not the verizon wireless modem only , that hanged up restart. It is the fact i have 2 modems plugged in. The other is a wireless logitech mouse. When i take either out restart works. So with both plugged in restart goes to a blank screen & when i only have one of them plugged in restart works. I have disabled the usb on boot sequence and it had no effect. Any ideas?

Blank Blue Screen - No Bios Error

I recently built myself a new computer. It's components are:-2 nvidia gtx470 connected via sli-core i7 930-3 3gb ddr3 ram sticks-asus p6x58d-e x58 r motherboard-antec|tp-750 750w rt power supply now, it's been running fine for the past 2 weeks. Perfectly, in fact. However my dad dragged me away on vacation to the dominican republic so i left the computer with my mom and grandma since they use it. Now, last night my mom told me that she got a problem. When she turned it on and tried to access her session she got a blank blue screen. No error messages, nothing.

I told her to hard restart it, and when she did it gave her the "windows shut down unexpectedly, start in safe mode or boot windows normally?" Message. When she told it to boot up normally, it was fine. I told her to restart it again to see if the bios would report any errors like it normally does when there's hardware failure but nothing came up. The more i think about it though, the less likely it seems like it'd be a hardware issue though, since this problem would've arisen much sooner since before i left i was playing alot of games, wouldn't it?

This morning when my grandmother turned on the computer again she got the same problem. I told her to hard reset it again, and once more it booted up normally after that. I had her run r-kill (which reported no malicious processes) and run malware bytes and microsoft security essentials. After that i'm going to have her insert the windows 7 disc to run a repair. What exactly is the problem though? Is there anything else that i should be doing?

We have been using the system regularly and almost daily, on shut down there are updates 1 of n to install. That happened the night before the crash and it was 1 of 1 and taking over 15 minutes so i turned off only the monitor so we could sleep.

Security Update Kb974571

On my aunt's computer i cannot get this update to install. I have done a search previously and one person mentioned that i should run the genuine windows program, i had to do the same thing previously similar to xp sp3 on her computer (i am thinking the hdd may be dying but i will worry about that later).

In a previous thread here, http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/vistawu/thread/1943ff9d-e593-4bb4-af4b-06ef96eb0b5f/ it is similar to that with the same error code. I keep the anti-virus programs up-to-date the best i can but can't get it to run, everything else works fine.

I don't know what else to do. My next question is if i wanted to go the route of format and reinstall, can i do that with the windows 7 home premium upgrade disk? Or, would i need to reformat to the oem dell software and then re-run the w7 hp upgrade program?

Microsoft Works 9 Security Update

I have been trying for the past 3 days now to install the microsoft works 9 security update onto my computer. I have tried through windows update and i have tried manually on the website (even where it lists that the new update is not recognizing office 2007 on computers). Still nothing! I need to update my computer fully! What do i do since it's not recognizing the folder on my computer for being installed already and not updating it? It tells me that once the folder is not recognized i have to cancel the installation and i need to be the administrator to give permission (which i am already). Help?

Security Essentials Update Failure

I ran the windows update for this but it started asking for an install package in g:67fa60492e8182946cb5c092964ccfec which does not exist on my machine. When i clicked on browse is it looking for 'mp_ambits. Msi'  when i browsed to the file location in the backup folder it deleted the file but would not install security essentials.

Anyway, why is it looking for a folder that does not exist? I have this problem on one of my windows xp machines also, except there it is looking for non-existing folder and drives for essentials, sql 2005, visual studio 2005, framework 1. 1 and more.

Security Update Kb954430 Wont Install

I have tried many things, like downloading it manually. I have read other forums, who say to uninstall the existing 954430 update (in add or remove programs) and reinstall. There is no existing one.

When i install manually, it comes back with an error message:
Hkey_local_machinesoftwareclassesmsxml2. Domdocument. 4. 0clsid verify that you have sufficient access to that key. I am trying to install sp3, and it will refuse that, too, because an update is not installed. I am just running a plain version of windows xp home.

Unable To Install Security Update Kb982665

Original title: security update kb982665hey everyone, i am running windows vista x64 based system and having some troubles trying to get one of the updates to pass. It continues to fail. The update is security update kb982665. No matter what i try, going to control panel and trying to install it from there, or manually from the microsoft website, it continues to fail. I have also tried shutting off my firewall and removing microsoft security essentials. I have also tried being a hidden admin. That doesnt seem to work either. I also have service pack 2 running as well, if that helps.

Cannot Install Cumulative Security Update For Ie8

I cannot install the latest security cumulative security update and appear to have been infected with something called cidutility-mud. This appears in the bottom screen tool bar whenever i log on and creates two entries of iexplorer.exe*32 in the task manager. I think this program is stopping the install of the security update. I have tried many scans with ms security essentials which show no virus. I have also tried spybot search and destroy also which finds no adaware. I am concerned my explorer 8 has been hijacked.

Crash / Bsod After Downloading Security Update

After receiving a mcafee update in late july my computer asked to restart. During starting up my computer got to the password page and then crashed to bsod. I restarted it in safe mode and then did a recovery as suggested which seemed to solve the problem. However my mcafee security center continually dropped protection so i contacted mcafee and they advised me to uninstall the old mcafee and download the new version. After download my computer crashed as before and on contacting mcafee was told there was an issue that their engineers are working on, but gave me no time frame for a resolution.

I have since attempted to download kaspersky security software, but after using the scan and finding nothing the security centre requested a restart after a update.guess what happened. Crash to bsod again!. My computer works fine after the removal of the software once i, ve employed recovery, but this obviously leaves me with only windows defender and no anti-virus software. Is this a mcafee issue or has their software caused some damage to my windows software or computer hardware? Please help i'm feeling a little defenseless.
