Photoshop: Brush always shows precise cursor

I'm having a problem with my cursor with in Photoshop Cs5. I went on the prefrences, changed the cursor to a normal brush tip and I even tried full size brush tip and no matter what, it stays with the hairline brush tip. I don't even know why the hairline is even an option.This really is irritatating cause I can't see the size of the brush!. How can this be fixed when the prefrences is not coroperating?
I have a 64bit operating system (Windows 7). 8 gigs of ram two scratch drives reserved for Photoshop. Please help.

Do you have the Caps Lock on by chance?
(left side of the keyboard above the shift key usually)

Also you might want to set the Standard option under Other Cursors.

AHH! OKay Thanks So much. That was an easy fix. I didn't think the caps lock would have an affect. Wow that didn't even cross my mind. Thanks

I just noticed this issue (2019-12-16, photoshop version 21.0.2 release), except that the icons seemed inversed from normal. Only when caps lock was on, did the cursor follow what I had set up in my preferences.
