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:

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

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

Your mouse pointer should be restored.
