The amazing invisible cursor

I recently reinstalled my suse 9.0 and XP pro dual boot. I cannot see my cursor when i am in suse. My mouse is recognized and i can mouse over icons but the cursor is invisible.

I did not have this problem the first time i installed

thanks for the reply. I had installed the suse vga drivers. When i downloaded and installed the nvidia drivers the cursor appeared. So it looks that it was a vga or monitor problem.
