Can you be more specific? Which pointer we talking about? Is it the mouse pointer? Have you got an external mouse or using the touch pad? If so, go to Control Panel and check if it is enabled, it may be off... More details = more advice
This appears to be caused by a malfunction of the mouse (device or connection), or a stuck key(s) on your keyboard. First try to replace the mouse (device) with another one to see if this still happens, and/or the keyboard (by using an external keyboard), to find out what component is causing the problem.
if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing
If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.
If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.
