5. Disable NVIDIA High Definition Audio/ Realtek

Some users claim that NVIDIA High Definition Audio and other audio drivers can sometimes cause the mouse pointer to disappear. If  you’re using an NVIDIA card, you can try the following steps:

  1. Press the Windows key > type ‘programs’ > select the ‘Add or remove programs’ option
  2. Uninstall the GeForce experience app.
  3.  Press the Windows key again > go to Device Manager > locate NVIDIA High Definition Audio.
  4. Disable it.

Same thing might work for other audio drivers, such as Realtek, so try disabling them as well. If disabling audio drivers didn’t help, try uninstalling them.
