The cursor speed not matching the habits of the user and frozen cursors are two common cursor problems. Whereas users can fix the first problem within Windows, the second requires a hardware upgrade.
If the mouse cursor is too fast or too slow, users can adjust the cursor speed from the Control Panel. To do so, click the Start button and open the Control Panel. Type Mouse in the search box at the top right and then click Mouse. Navigate to the Pointer Options tab and adjust the Select a Pointed Speed slider.
A frozen mouse cursor indicates the computer is under heavier workload than it can handle. The user can either close some applications to ease to workload or upgrade the processor in the system to improve performance.
