frozen curser

  rialto 21:07 29 Aug 07

I have just been doing some text amendments in word and the curser has frozen. It is now impossible to navigate around the screen or even shut down the computer. I am using Vista OS.
Can anyone suggest how to resolve the problem?

Just wondering if the problem has been resolved or did it resolve itself?

... or if the computer is still on .. ;)

If it happens again, or to shut down any freeze, simple hold the physical on/off button in or down for 10 seconds until it shuts down.

I had this repeatedly on a vista system. I got rid of the sidebar and switched off aero effects since when there has been no problem. Buggy or underpowered graphics I assumed.
