Cursor/Display problem by Frances
When I turned on my computer, the cursor was not visible, my desktop icons were enlarged, and the colour of my wallpaper was weird, like if it was in safe mode or something. I don't know how to fix this problem. I can't do much without a cursor. Can somebody please help me? Thanks.
