Random loss of cursor

Occasionally, about twice/day, I lose my cursor... I can only tell where it is by what is "highlighted"... for example, on the tabs of firefox ...  It is not restricted to any particular application.

Seems that the is lack of free memory and device deletes old messages from the device memory to keep the device running.

  • Vist Basic & XFI, random loss of sound and World of Warcraft Hardware enabling iss

    Hello.. First off want to say that prior to reinstalling Vista last week, I had no had any issues with my XFI and Vista.. Since the re-install, while running World of Warcraft and Ventrillo, I get random loss of sound. And by that, specifically I mean, the sound shuts off, and I get a constant loud hiss noise that does not stop until a reboot is performed. If I just run WoW and no Ventrillo, I dont get the random problem and the sound runs fine. It is however a highly annoying issue that requires too many reboots in evening. Getting to the point of just trying the onboard sound, which I'd certainly rather not do.
    Additionally there is an option in WoW that allows for Hardware enabling, which is supposed to improve performance. When I check this box and restart the game, the box is still not checked. Not sure if this is a CL problem, but something is wrong for sure! I'm using the latest drivers that are on creativelabs.com for my Vista 32 bit system. And again, didnt have these issues prior to the fresh re-install of Vista. Before that I had stepped up the drivers all the way from Vista. Thanks for any feedback on this.

    Not sure why your sound is cutting out... but as for WoW, it needs ALchemy installed to run with hardware audio enabled under Vista. I dont believe its in the list of titles included with ALchemy just yet, but adding it manually with the default options works just fine. Without doing this I believe the new sound core used in WoW will automatically detect that it cannot do hardware audio and simply uncheck the box whenever you try, where-as before it would work but still give you Software rendered sound (only instead of WoWs audio engine doing it, it was Vistas - not exactly an improvement). Incidentally, this not only improves performance but vastly improves the sound quality - especially when excessive numbers of sounds are being played. (eg Mass AoE effects on larger numbers of mobs, such as two Warlocks Hellfiring along with a Hurricane and Consecration while pulling the Ballroom - 9 mobs per group - near Moroes in Karazhan) Its possible doing this may also correct your cut-out issue, but its possible it wont. Ive been running WoW alongside Vent for months now under Vista w/ALchemy and an X-Fi and never had such a problem, but then I do also run Vent off the onboard audio so I can use a small earpiece and have voices clearly audible through game sound.

  • Random loss of Exposé functionality

    Hi,
    it's rather weired and happens only on this machine (the 12") so I guess I post here before moving this question over to the Leopard forum.
    Randomly (maybe about once a month) Exposé just stops working and the only cure is a restart.
    Any ideas ?
    Thanks a lot,
    Barbara

    Hi Barbara,
    Check the hard disk for errors. Restart your Mac while holding down the C key, pressing the power button and inserting your restore disk all at the same time. An Installer window will open, but do not proceed with any installations. Instead, from the Menu Bar, select Utilities/Disk Utility. In the Disk Utility window click First Aid, and then click Verify. If Disk Utility reports errors, click Repair. When Disk Utility is finished, from the Menu Bar, select Utilities/Startup Disk. Select MacintoshHD 10.x.x and click Restart.
    Go to System Preferences/Expose and Spaces/Expose and see if your keyboard and mouse shortcuts have changed.
    Insufficient disk space can cause system corruption.
    Right or control click the MacintoshHD icon on your Desktop, then click: Get Info. In the Get Info window, click the discovery triangle so it's facing down. You will see; Capacity and Available Make sure you have 10% available disk space, 15% is better. Insufficient available space, can cause performance issues, system corruption, and possible loss of data.

  • Ipad 3: Random Loss of Control (Screen Touches)

    I usually consider myself smart enough to resolve issues through research and trial and error.  This however is an issue that is beyond me.  I recieved my iPad 3 on the 19th of March and have been using it since.  Mostly for comic book readers, PDF files and games.  Roughly 2 hours ago, the screen started registering random clicks and slides making control fo the device impossible.  I hard resetted (Holding power/home method), restoring, and just regular soft power off.  All of which seem to resolve the issue for a few minutes.  After some online research, I learned that a quick lock/unlock will resolve it faster than full power cycling, but the issue still returns after a few minutes of use.  This makes me reframe from opening apps that could make purchases randomly; since I have no idea when the issue will spark.
    My question is; do I need to drive an hour to the closest Apple Store to have them resolve this issue or am I missing something?  Any assistance would be appreciative as that sorta drive isn't a good idea for someone in my condition.  I'd take it back to my local retailer, except it was purchased straight from the Apple Store.  I'm not sure why it started all of a sudden, I did download a few apps today (ARCreader, Cloudviewer and Icomix Pro for Iphone), I'm going to be removing all but cloudreader as the others don't support the features I need.  But none are running in the background so I can't see them causing the issue itself.  Thank you for your time.
    Side Note:  I have an iPad 1st gen, with all the same applications installed and no issue, iOS 5.1 installed on both devices.

    Try Barry's suggestion first.
    If the Reset doesn't work, try a Restore.  Note that it's nowhere near as quick as a Reset.  It could take well over an hour!  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad/iPod and then select the Summary tab.  Follow the on-screen directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad/iPod.  Again, say "yes."
    At the end of the basic Restore, you will be asked if you wish to sync the iPad/iPod.  As before, say "yes."  Note that that sync selection will disappear and the Restore will end if you do not respond within a reasonable time.  If that happens, only the apps that are part of the IOS will appear on your device.  Corrective action is simple -  choose manual "Sync" from the bottom right of iTunes.
    If you're unable to do the Restore (or it doesn't help), go into Recovery Mode per the instructions here.  You WILL lose all of your data (game scores, etc,) but, for the most part, you can redownload apps and music without being charged again.  Also, read this.

  • LED Cinema Display 27 Random Loss of USB

    I have a brand new 27" LED Cinema display connected via Mini Display Port to my 2006 Mac Pro with an ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card.  The display's USB cable is connected to a USB port on the back of the Mac Pro.  My keyboard is the newest Apple extended keyboard (wired) that is plugged into the back of the monitor.
    The problem is that randomly (about one out every 8 boots but with no pattern or rhyme-or-reason), I have no USB connectivity from the keyboard.  I am unable to enter my user name and password to log in.  While it is in this state I have pulled the monitor's USB cable from the back of the Mac Pro, waited 15 seconds or so and then plugged it back in.  This does not fix the problem.  The only solution so far is to force shut down the computer using the power button on the front of the Mac Pro, then disconnect the monitor's power cable, plug the monitor's power cable back in and re-boot.  So far 100% success with this process.  Somehow removing power from the monitor resets its USB bus.  I just don't think I should have to do this once or twice a week... or more.
    So I have a solution but it is a pain in the rear and involves crawling under my desk.  I could try plugging the keyboard directly into the Mac Pro and abandon all use of the USB ports on the back of the monitor but would hate to give up functionality that I paid for.
    This only occurs on boot... I have never lost USB connectivity while the computer is running if it boots and works properly... even after sleep.
    Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Norby

    I installed Mountain Lion last night. Playing around a bit before going to bed I noticed that my keyboard seemed to fade in and out, sometimes what I typed showed up, sometimes not. This morning I was using Messages, tried the camera. First I got a warning saying no camera was attached to Mac (built in iSight?!?!?!). The unplug/plug method didn't address this. Restarted Mac Pro, camera showed up but there was major lag, like it was someone's video sent to me from a bad connection not locally streaming video! Also, graphical anomalies kept popping up in the video. (a note: none of this was happening with my MBP with FaceTime camera after ML install)
    And then it hit me.
    Due to the short span of the mini display cable on the LED Display, I have to use an extension cord for the MiniDisplay and USB. Removing the MiniDisplay extension cured my video issues. I removed the USB extension and put in place another USB hub testing my previous post. So far, with keyboard and Wacom plugged into the Displays USB, no issues. It's early though so who knows. I wouldn't mind trying a straight connection to a Mac Pro USB but Apple has made the cable far too short and working with my head next to the tower just isn't desired.

  • Panning issues and seemingly random loss of all audio. ***.

    i've been using logic for a few years now, and i just created a new project exactly as i've done about 30+ times.... only for some reason none of the pan settings on the individual tracks are working.  the pan dial looks just like it normally does, except everything is mono, straight down the gorramn middle.  the one track that will allow panning is the output 1-2 track (and probably the master, although i didn't really mess with that one), but i don't think that having the entire audio field set slightly to the side will make this sound very great.
    also, i'm losing all audio for what seems an awful lot like no reason at all.  i press play and i can see everything moving as it should. each channel is doing it's thing and seems to be receiving, processing, and sending a signal, but i'm getting nothing in the headset.  i had to restart logic to regain audio.
    i appreciate any and all help, and i realize that the fault probably lies in my court as usual. 
    thanks

    @pancenter - nope. that is still checked.
    @chorleyman - out 1-2 is still in stereo, and now i've switched all the individual tracks to stereo just to be sure, but it doesn't seem to be helping.  let me describe my project a bit more.... i've got six guitar tracks, and all of them being bused to an aux.  that aux won't pan either, although if i hard pan it L or R and then hard pan an individual guitar track in the opposite direction, i hear nothing from that track.
    i've got one vox track bused to another aux. same story there.
    and i've also got two software instruments (a kick and a snare) that go straight to out1-2, and those won't pan either.
    let's see... other equipment... not a very extensive list.  for recording i used a usb guitar cable which i don't have plugged in for the mixdown, although the panning issues began before i unplugged that.
    other than that i have some headphones plugged into the headphone jack on the mac.
    regarding the loss of audio, i've gotten this message a few times, although it didn't pop up the first couple times i lost audio so i'm not sure the answer lies here:
    Error while trying to synchronize Audio and MIDI.
    Sample Rate 42098 recognized.
    Check conflict between Logic Express and external device.
    thanks to both of you for responding!

  • Windows 8 - Random loss of network

    Hello! I posted the following in the community forums and it was recommend may I post this here as well..
    Hoping someone can help!
    I have been battling an issue with a PC we have that will randomly loose its network.
    HP PC running Windows 8
    RTL8168 (Latest 8.26 drivers - static IP) >ZyXEL 48PT > Edgemax Lite > Cable Modem
    This PC runs some network intensive tasks, on average it is receiving 150mb of data but that can spike. Usually what happens is every couple of days the network will just "stop".  At first I thought it had something to do with the network
    driver, so I updated it. Then I disable IPv6, then I disabled anything that mentioned power management in relation to the realtek device. Uninstalled Avast and enabled Defender. Nothing I have done appears to fix the issue.
    When the network stops, it no longer receives connections and I cannot for instance, ping the router nor network switch. At first I thought I was looking at port exhaustion but my service ports go from 100 to 110 on average while working to 20 when the issue
    is present. I can see when it starts because within event viewer I see DNS errors that are generated from my script trying to email me telling me the system is down (Name resolution for the name smtp.gmail.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers
    responded.). When I had the wifi adapter enabled just for the fun of it, I noticed it would constantly drop and would see DHCP issues when this even was taking place. I have re-disabled the wifi adapter so this is not part of the issue just an interesting
    note that it seems to be affected by it as well.
    When this happens I can still remotely connect to the router through the web, I can connect to the ZyXEL switch, I can connect to other PCs on the network remotely and have no issues. I run a script that pings the network switch every 5 minutes. If it receives
    a reply from it quits, if it receives anything else it will flag itself as being in an error state and the next time it runs if the connection is still not present it will reboot the PC which is the only way I have found to fix this issue.
    I had it run netstat and ipconfig before the shutdown command and noticed the local connections that generate all the traffic (which I can connect to on other machines) will stay in a SYN_SENT state.  Ipconfig looks like it should and doesn't display
    any obvious issues.
    Unfortunately because I am never there physically when it happens I haven't been able to try pulling the network cord or to try disable/enable and seeing what happens. The systems needs to stay up so I can't leave it in this state to try these things.
    The one constant I can state it seems to be related to the amount of traffic being passed through, which is kind of why I thought port exhaustion. If I enable a specific backup service related to the traffic being generated it will happen every night vs
    every couple days. So more traffic means quicker issue.
    I have scoured the Internet for the past week and see related issues with windows 7 and windows 8.1 - I can't seem to find a resolution though, hoping someone has more things to try before I upgrade to 8.1 and see if that fixes anything.

    An update I suppose.. I tried to uninstall the drivers and reinstall the HP drivers. This ended badly.
    Lost the Ethernet adapter all together with a Code 10 - then I uninstalled the HP drivers basically rolling it back to zero and it wouldn't say Code 10 but the network adapter showed network cable unplugged. A combination of trying last known good drivers,
    deleting all drivers from the driver store, etc resulted in the same two scenarios.
    I bit the bullet and updated to 8.1 and the system loaded with the base drivers. Still showed Code 10. I clicked on update and allowed the device to update via windows update, rebooted, still Code 10.
    I went into the BIOS - enabled and re-disabled power saving mode. Made no other changes, rebooted and it is now working with whatever drivers Windows Update installed.
    Very odd experience for me, I am now in a holding pattern to wait and see if the whole reason for all of this is still an issue or not.

  • Random loss of sound on X200...getting on my nerves!

    Hi,
    I have an X200 with windows XP running SP2 and I'm experiencing a rather odd problem that I cannot solve (i am usually quite good at solving PC problems!).
    When I start the laptop the sound works fine but after a random amount of time it dissapears. I cannot narrow it down to any applications that I use. I can be listening to an mp3 and it will suddenly lose the sound, or I can be on youtube and the sound drops.
    It does not work again until I restart the PC.
    This is what I have tried so far.
    1. Uninstall the driver and let windows install it again
    2. Installed the latest driver from the website
    3. Played around with the sound services in "services.msc". 
    4. And before you suggest it...the volume is not on mute.
    5. Many many other things from installing microsoft updates to generic drivers...nothing works.
    It happens without fail every time i turn the pc on. The sound can dissappear after 1 minute or sometimes 2 hours...but it WILL dissapear eventually. All signs on the computer says it should still be working. Device manager shows the soundcard as working, the volume controls are there and everything works, but there is no sound until I restart.

  • Elements 10 loss of cursor circle

    Just started using Elements 10 ans when trying to use the spot healing brush or the clone stamp, instead of the usual circle for the cursor position all I'm getting is a small cross. What am I doing wrong please?

    In Editor, go to Edit>preferences>Display and cursors. Uncheck "show crosshair in brush tip." Check "normal brush tip."
    For other cursors check"normal".
    Be sure that the caps lock on the keyboard if off.
    Now, when using the clone stamp tool, you may have to increase the size of the cursor if the problem persists. The easiest way is to use the bracket keys on the keyboard. ] for larger, [ for smaller.
    Let us know how you make out.

  • Loss of cursor control

    I have an HP Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook running Windows 8.
    I have had trouble with cursor control since I took the PC out of the box.  I called HP support and they had me turn my touchpad off.  They also had me reload some drivers.  Nothing has worked.    However, the cursor continued to jump around the screen as I was typing - sometimes putting me at another position in my document and sometimes just going to the desktop and starting up another program.
    It is now much worse.  My cursor is going to the top right corner of the screen - it even shows a small rectangle in the corner.  It is getting very difficult to control the cursor or click on anything on my desktop or in my mail program (Windows Live Mail).  
    Someone Help!  Please!

  • Random loss of photos

    Some of my iPhoto thumbnails lost their photos yesterday evening and only the file name remains under an empty grey box. When I tried looking up the file name in Finder, the following thread came up:
    (my name) = library = iApps= iPhoto = Album Data.xml. When I clicked on Album Data.xml the board game 'Big Bang 4 in a Row' came up. On advice from a user in another forum (I couldn't locate this one at the time) I downloaded a 'zapper' programme and deleted the board game Big Bang. Now when I click on Album Data.xml I get the error message code 10660.
    What does all this mean? Have I lost these photos for ever? Does anyone know why? Can I stop it happening again? I have a free copy of Open Office.org 2.1 and have often wondered if it has been interfering with my files, as it sometimes behaves erratically? If anyone has any answers I would love to hear from them. Linda.

    Linda
    I had been moving things around in the iPhoto library folder in the Finder.
    You'll need to create and populate a new library.
    To create and populate a new library:
    Note this will give you a working library with the same Rolls and pictures as before, however, you will lose your albums, keywords, modified versions, books, calendars etc.
    Move the iPhoto Library to the desktop
    Launch iPhoto. It will ask if you wish to create a new Library. Say Yes.
    Go into the iPhoto Library on your desktop and find the Originals folder. From the Originals folder drag the individual Roll Folders to the iPhoto Window and it will recreate them in the new library.
    When you're sure all is well you can delete the iPhoto Library on your desktop.
    In the future, in addition to your usual back up routine, you might like to make a copy of the library6.iPhoto file whenever you have made changes to the library as protection against database corruption.
    To access files: There are many, many ways to access your files in iPhoto:
    For 10.5 users: You can use any Open / Attach / Browse dialogue. On the left there's a Media heading, your pics can be accessed there. Apple-Click for selecting multiple pics.
    To upload to a site that does not have an iPhoto Export Plug-in the recommended way is to Select the Pic in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export and export the pic to the desktop, then upload from there. After the upload you can trash the pic on the desktop. It's only a copy and your original is safe in iPhoto.
    This is also true for emailing with Web-based services. If you're using Gmail you can use THIS
    If you use Apple's Mail, Entourage, AOL or Eudora you can email from within iPhoto.
    If you use a Cocoa-based Browser such as Safari, you can drag the pics from the iPhoto Window to the Attach window in the browser.
    Or, if you want to access the files with iPhoto not running, then create a Media Browser using Automator (takes about 10 seconds) or use THIS
    Other options include:
    1. *Drag and Drop*: Drag a photo from the iPhoto Window to the desktop, there iPhoto will make a full-sized copy of the pic.
    2. *File -> Export*: Select the files in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export. The dialogue will give you various options, including altering the format, naming the files and changing the size. Again, producing a copy.
    3. *Show File*: Right- (or Control-) Click on a pic and in the resulting dialogue choose 'Show File'. A Finder window will pop open with the file already selected.

  • Random Loss of art work.

    My iPod 5th Gen is often loosing artwork for the odd few albums. I have it set to show artwork in my preferences and all my artwork is in my iTunes still.
    I have 3 times totally removed artwork by selecting "do not display album artwork", in my iPod preferences and re selecting after.
    It has also on one occasion put 1 album artwork (the same one) for most of my albums and then the correct ones for 10% of them!!!!?
    Any help out there on this. PLEASE.

    Okay, thats a goo didea apart from i am in the middle of wales and no shop near me!!
    I have totally wiped my iPod, updated to the latest iPod updater (as it is an obvious 5th gen bug) and re filled my iPod with the original library export file i was using.
    Fingers crossed all seems to be in the right place.
    Is it me or does the iTunes software need a "delete all section" in the iPod preferences? The reason ii say this is set to auto update my iPod will not delete all files when i delete them from the library. It will ONLY delete them if i update manually by deleteing them from the iPod logo (double clicking in) and select all - delete.
    They are greyed out in this menu if auto update is on.

  • Random Loss of Secondary Button with Wireless Mighty Mouse 2

    Seems that Apple has locked the previous thread on this topic, though I don't know why. People are having issues with Apple hardware, so they lock the thread? Nice.
    I'm having this issue with my brand new WMM, and I got it for Christmas and I don't have a receipt. Serial# KY6470E02SE2A
    Will I be able to return this piece of crap mouse? The previous thread on this issue dates back to August 8th, 2006 and they haven't been able to fix this yet? Worse yet, they're still selling them! That's bad business if you ask me.

    I don't know for sure whether it's hardware or software. Since there has been no software fix issued for this OBVIOUS DEFECT yet, I'm assuming it's a hardware/design problem.
    I'm also betting that Apple won't respond to this thread as they didn't respond to the previous one. They did lock it however, so they must have seen all the people complaining about the problem.
    I'm really irritated about the arrogant people who recently posted the reviews for the wireless Mighty Mouse at the Apple Online Store. A few say, "Just lift your finger off the left button and right-click works like a charm." No it doesn't! My right-click doesn't work after 15 or so minutes whether no other part of my hand is touching the mouse or not. Perhaps their mouse works fine, but mine and many other's on this board do not. They should not be posting such statements as, "Don't listen to the people who can't right click with their Mighty Mouses. They just don't know how to use it." They haven't used mine, or seen me use it, so how the heck do they know? Their mouse isn't defective, so everyone else's must be perfect too? Ignorant twits. My mouse is defective, and this is a genuine problem.
