View Full Version : Press Any (key omitted), cursor moves to upper left corner and flickers

10-27-2017, 08:56 AM

I have reinstalled the files for Origins, and updated my drivers.
When I try to start the game via the desktop, Steam, or Uplay, everything goes fine until the screen where it's meant to say: press any key.
My screen just says press any.
Then, upon pressing any key, I'm sent to the main menu, and everything looks fine, except then my cursor moves to the upper left hand corner and can't be moved.
I can move the mouse through control-alt-delete (back on the desktop), or in the steam window, but not in-game itself.

Some people have suggested verifying the files, but I looked for a way to do that via Uplay and was unable to find anything.

Here are my specs:
Windows 10 Pro, 64
Intel i7 6700 K
CPU @ 4.0 GHz

My current driver is the updated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970

Any thoughts as to how to proceed?
I've tried absolutely everything I can think of, and scoured google. : /

Oops, just kidding.
It doesn't say 'Press Any' [blank]
It just says 'press'

Try unplugging a joystick, HOTAS, rudder pedals or similar controllers from your PC.

Good idea! I'll give it a try and see what's what. Thanks.
