    mouse cursor only moving when I left or right click.

    Has anybody ever had this problem... my mouse cursor will only move when i hold either left or right click.
    Otherwise it doesnt move.
    Don't know if I'm being really thick here but I can't seem to solve this issue.
    If anybody can help me fix this it would be appreciated.
