Re: Cursor Problems, again

Try setting the Software-based Cursor option in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 .
On my laptop, the hardware cursor starts out fine but gets fritzed when 
the BIOS displays its "LOW BAT" warning.

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Generic Video Card"
        Driver          "ati"
        Option          "SWCursor"
