This should solve the problem...

* Open a root terminal session or change to the root account from a standard terminal session.

* Edit the X Windows configuration file.

#gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

* Revise the "Device" section as follows:

Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nv"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "nVidia Corporation C51 PCI Express Bridge"
##Corrected for bug reported to Fedora Core bugzilla. Bug 182517. See URL
Option "HWCursor" "off"

* Save the file and exit gedit.

* Log out and log back in. Your mouse pointer should be restored.
