    Try this :

    1. Open the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    2. Find the "Device" section and add the line
    Option "HWCursor" "off"
    as......
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Videocard0"
    ...........
    ..........
    Option "HWCursor" "off"
    EndSection

    3. You need to add only line mention in bold whatever your Section "Device" contain
    4. Save the file.
    5. Log out
    6. Log In

    Your mouse pointer should be restored.

    Give me reply if it works.
