You have two issues and should probably start another thread for the sound problem. To fix the mouse pointer issue, do this
  1. Open a root terminal session or change to the root account from a standard terminal session.
  2. Edit the X Windows configuration.
    Code:

    weibullhost ~ # nano -w /etc/X11/xorg.conf
  3. Revise the "Device" section as follows:
    Code:

    Section"Device"
          Identifier "Videocard0"
          Driver "nvidia"
          VendorName "Videocard vendor"
          BoardName "nVidia Corporation C51 PCI Express Bridge"
          ## Fixes Red Hat bug #182517
          Option "HWCursor" "off"
          EndSection

  4. Save the file and exit nano.
  5. Log out and log back in. Your mouse pointer should be restored.

Edit: If you later install Compiz/XGL, the missing mouse pointer problem may return. Comment out the Option if it does.
