2---------- Sound Is Coming On Only On Side Of Speaker
Besides That I Had Tried To Install Older Version Of Fedora Which Didnt Work Since It Didnt Detect My Harddrive As Well As Cdrom

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.
    weibullhost ~ # nano -w /etc/X11/xorg.conf
  3. Revise the "Device" section as follows:
          Identifier "Videocard0"
          Driver "nvidia"
          VendorName "Videocard vendor"
          BoardName "nVidia Corporation C51 PCI Express Bridge"
          ## Fixes Red Hat bug #182517
          Option "HWCursor" "off"
  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.
