Cross Hair Disappeared

For some reason my cross hair disappeared and I can't access the graphics window.  I can enter commands and zoom in and out but I can't select anything in the graphics window.

It apears to be an issue with the latest NVIDIA drivers.  I found out that I was actually running NVIDA driver 285.62 which is the current release of the NVIDA drivers. I uninstalled it and let windows 7 find and re-install driver version 270.61. All is working fine again! Yeah!!!

Set your background colour to something else. Maybe your cursor is the same colour as the background.

Changing the background color did not work.  I still cannot access the graphics window.

I have been using a GTX 460 for the last year. It just started doing this recently and my driver has been the same since April so I don't think its the driver.

If  it's not the driver, then it's the drawing. Are all drawings or just one ?

If all got messed up, repair Autocad.

check the SNAP setting, possibly it got changed to something too large to see on screen.
