EDIT: um what I posted was partly right. seems it depends on the DVD... I know this is nuts. watching lord of the rings, no problem, watching my Richard Pryor Show DVD the mouse stops working again... im going nuts trying to figure it out....
Hmmm... now it sounds like a definite software issue. I tried to recreate the problem with my 2005FPW but could not. Do you have another PC that you could connect the 2005FPW too? See if you still have the problem on the other PC. If you don't then something you have installed on your main rig is the cause. If you still do then you might want to RMA the LCD back to Dell. Let us know how you make out with that issue.
