I would suggest downloading the latest trackpad drivers for your laptop from Acer. These usually address bug fixes like the one you are describing. If the problem persists it may be related to your hardware.

Go to acer website and download that model manual, make sure you have ADOBE READER on this machine..If your pointer is not working then you need to download the touchpad driver or if you are using a mouse then it may be a bad one.

Acer aspire 5520 startup problem


Michelle-

I had the same problem with the cursor jumping around. My cousin bought the same computer and had the same problem! What she told me to do was go to the touchpad icon on the bottom right. Then click tapping and then check the box that says "tap off when typing."
It seems to have worked for us.
