The computer screen goes pale and somtimes white and the cursor is very slow in getting to where you wish to go but if you persevere long enough
You will get there. Memory or Graphics card or ??? Windows Vista Ultimate.

It would be helpful to know the type of screen and how old the gear is.

Is it a glass CRT or flat panel LCD screen?

Boot into Safe Mode(Tap F8 on boot and select Safe Mode)

See if it happens then.

Rather strange symptoms. It doesn't make a lot of logical sense to have slow mouse performance tied to the screen effect you see.

With that in mind, we need to cast a wide net to try to close in on the problem.

Have a look at the event viewer to see whether Vista is reporting problems. The system log may be useful. Reference here http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/vista/vista_event_viewer.htm
