    Cursor Leaves a Trail of Cursors as it Moves

    I am not 100% sure this belongs in hardware as this may not be a hardware problem. If it doesn't notify and move this thread.

    I just Finished doing an install of an older computer and the only problem I am having this run through is that the mouse leaves a trail of cursors as it moves. It only occasionally refreshes.

    Note: Had to do the alternative install, with the other on I kept receiving ubi-partman failed returned error code 10.

    Specs:
    Hard Drive: 640gb (split between two drives 320 each)
    CPU: Pentium 4 (I think its an earlier one)
    RAM: ~1gb
    Graphics card: __________________ (I believe the part number is g7700.2 and its a gateway computer)

    Note: It was just recently upgraded from 20gb hdd and .5gb ram.

    You probably need to go in and reset your mouse settings. You can set it up to leave a trail, you just need to uncheck the box so it won't leave a trail.

    Well I know the trail your talking about and this does not seem like it since the trail only disappears when the screen around refreshes. So maybe it is a cursor refresh error. How would one fix that?

    If the trail is persistent then it's something else all together. The setting just leaves a short trail that disappears so it's probably something other then settings.

    Yeah that is what I thought. Which brings me back to this post.

    I hope I do not need a new graphics card as well.

    Maybe not so much a new graphics card but a new driver for it might not hurt. I'd look up any driver updates that you can find for it and install them, maybe that'll help.
