Mouse pointer vanishes, system locks

  hatrickj 06:57 12 Aug 11

Dell MT560; Windows7 HP; wired Dell standard optical mouse.

Sometimes the mouse pointer vanishes from the screen but its red light remains on. The system is locked. I can only do a hard reset with the computer's power button.

Can someone suggest a reason and a cure for this? Please!

You need to eliminate if its the mouse or the PC try another one or try yours on another machine.
