usb mouse? wireless mouse?

If you look around away from the computer does everything else also flicker? If so, you're blinking. When everything disappears, you've closed your eyes :-D

If you're not blinking and haven't closed your eyes then this link may help:

hilarious fireball but sorted now cheers just finished my poker game so restarted my computer and now its fine cheers anyways

Too late to be of any use now, but for future reference, this usually happens when there is something going on in the background on your PC.

When your PC doesn't want you to do anything (because it's busy) it 'hides' the cursor. However, with the speed at which PCs work & with the ability of CPUs to multitask these busy periods are very short, hence the flickering.

You can always check in Task manager to see what's happening.
