Try this

1. Open a root terminal session or change to the root account from a standard terminal session.
2. Edit the X Windows configuration file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
3. Find the "Device" section and add the line in red:

Section"Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "nVidia Corporation C51 PCI Express Bridge"
## See RedHat Bug #182517
Option "HWCursor" "off"
EndSection

4. Save the file.
5. Log out of X Windows (Ctrl-Alt-Backspace).

Your mouse pointer should be restored.

Sir,
Thank you, It is working.
Initially in the file 'xorg.conf' ,
---------------------------------------
Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nv"
EndSection
---------------------------------------
Then according to your guidance i have added line as-
---------------------------------------
Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nv"
Option "HWCursor" "off"
EndSection
---------------------------------------
Now, Mouse Cursor is visible !
Thank you Sir.
Can you tell me in brief about this 'xorg.conf' file, Section, "Device"
What happens after logOut ..... ?
