Specs: Windows 7
I have Wkindows 7. While in WordPerfect (X5), I lose my mouse off of the right side of the screen, and have to reboot to get it back. It's driving me crazy, having to reboot 10 to 15 times per day. What's the fix???

When you say you looset he mouse of the screen, do you mean that you move the mouse to the right and it vanishes?

do you have a dual display setup?

have you checked your screen resoluition, usually if you have another display, the mouse moves over to that extended display and it seems that your mouse pointer has 'vanished'

please explain a little better what you are experiencing and what you setup is.

After I move the mouse to the upper right side of the screen to exit the window, I'm left on the computer with no mouse arrow, or the mouse is flickering along the right edge and I can't use it. I don't have a dual screen. I've read that I have a "resolution" problem, - but don't know what to do. I'm at the highest resolution but I've enlarged the font size to "150" so I can read the screen easier. (I have a 22" screen (large).) If I lower the resolution, the characters/text become fuzzier and I don't like the look. I replaced my keyboard with touch mouse screen with a new one, but I still have the same problem. The problem is not just in WordPerfect, but in all Windows (7). For example, when I reboot, if I try to access something before the rebooot is totally completed, I lose the mouse immediately. Thanks for any advice you may have. Pete

Have you chcked that you have the latest driver version for your graphics card? That would be my first attempt. Update your driver and see if that helps.

if you do not know how to check what graphics card you have, you can download AIDA (formaly known as everest) and under hardware look for your graphics card and then go to the appropriate site and download the latest driver.

Aida64 will only advise you what you graphics card is, you will then need to go to the manufacturers website to download the appropriate driver.

Try this site

click on 'graphics card' and allow it to scan you machine,. you may be asked to download or run an ActiveX component, do that, and it should tell you what driver you need. if however you have an ATI graohics card you will need to go to ATI website

Thank you. I'll try that. Yet I have an Addesso touch keyboard PCK-308 UW, so I will firstly try to download its particular driver. I took it out months ago because I was having the same problem, - losing the mouse to the right side of the screen. That was before I updated from Windows SP to Windows 7, so we'll if it works now.
