    it has no boundaries
    'least not on two sides of the screen
    bottom and right sides of the screen don't stop the cursor

    think this happened right after I was demonstrating to someone the shittiness of 1024x768 resolution

    I bumped it up to 1280x1024, just to show how much more could be fit on the screen,
    (cirtical for AutoCAD, Frontpage, etc.)
    then reverted it back
    (I have an old ass Compaq 17 in monitor, had to revert it back)

    now my cursor has gone wild

    Hmm normally it goes to the right if you have a second display enabled...
    Go to your display manager and see if more than 1 display is turned on.
    I'm not sure why it would go down though, i've never seen that before.

    Also could just try restarting if it's not a second display.

    nope, no second display
    even went into the nView Desktop manager whatchamacallit
    and disabled the option for a second display

    did the reboot deal too
    gimme some credit now, ross

    I even....get this....tried going down to 800x600 and then back up to 1024x768
    just outta curiosity, and of course it did no good

    reinstalled the video drivers, nope, didn't help

    I thought that it was supposed to be limited to the visual screen.
    Or did it always do that...

    Now that I think about it, I don't know if I ever really paid attention to it before.

    Is the window you're typing in maximised?
    The window may not be maximised but set to a size larger than your display. If this is the case, switch to the larger resolution again, open the app, resize the window somewhere in the top left area of the screen, close the app, change resolution back and re-open the app.
