    I have aspire 5315 and have the same problem, only worse. The cursor just goes all over the place -- everywhere but where I am trying to place it.

If it's an external mouse you are using with the slow dragging problem then it could be a problem with the mouse itself ,internal ,try to clean the pad with a moist cloth while laptop is off.
Also look in the mouse setting and change the pointer speed.
Also try a plain coloured mouse pad and not one with mixed colours.
Download the vga driver from here and reinstall it :

Cursor disappeared


If you have multiple screens set up it might be on one of the 'extra' desktops. Very deliberately drag your mouse in one direction 3-4 times, change direction and do it again and again until you see the mouse pop up. Also if you are good at navigating by keystroke you could go into your display settings and remove any extra monitors. Hope this helps!

I have a Toshiba LapTop Windows 7 My granddaughter pushed keys and now i can't get the cursor to move. I have tried shutting down and it is still frozen in the middle .


Are you using the trackpad to manipulate the cursor, or are you using an external mouse?

If you're using the trackpad, it may be as simple as using the Fn keys and the corresponding F keys at the top of the keyboard to enable the trackpad feature again. If that doesn't work, try plugging in an external mouse via USB port to see if that works.
If you're using an external mouse, then try to see if the cursor moves while using the trackpad.

Hopefully one of these options will give you control back over your cursor again.

My cursor jumps around while I am typing often starting up in the middle of typed area oping r if I pause while ty it just happened here....now.. see "oping" r "ty"????!!!!!!


This is usually due to your base of your thumbs touching the mouse pad while you are typing. Some touchpads will let you disabe the mouse pad while typing. Go to control panel-mouse- and look in the properties. There may also be an option to disable the touchpad when you plug a mouse in. Hope this helps

My cursor jumps back to the beginning when i'm trying to type. i'm constantly having to backspace and correct and reset my cursor. any suggestions?


Disable your touchpad if you consistently have this problem.

When you are typing something, and you suddenly touch the touchpad (tapping this touchpad moves the cursor) then your cursor will suddenly change position which then mess up your typing.

If you don'r have an external mouse connected, better be careful not to touch the touchpad. If you have an external mouse, better disable this touchpad.

Touchpad dragging


Greetings,
You can refer to a few Mouse settings as mentioned below

  1. Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize > Mouse Pointers . The Mouse Properties settings window will open. Alternately, click Start and type Mouse in the Search field, and select Mouse when it becomes available in the program list. The Mouse Properties settings window will open.
  2. Verify that the Device Settings tab is present in the Mouse Properties window.
  3. If this tab is not present, you will need to obtain the Synaptics TouchPad software.
Regards,
