Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

1 Answer

Mouse and Keyboard seem to be working together to stress me out

When I am typing, whereever my mouse is at on the screen, my keyboard decides this is where I am going to type (or not - if its not in a typing area it will either minimize the program I am working with or just make it so I cant type because I am not in the typing area) and its FRUSTRATING to always have to move the mouse back to where you were typing in the first place...

GOOD EXAMPLE

When I am typing, whereever my mouse is at on the screen, the keyboard decides this is where I aating when I am typing and dont realize this m going to type (or not) and it is frustr


I was typing it is frustrating and it moved it up a line next to "when I am typing..."

    there isnt a Smart Move box or Motion tab in my Mouse Properties

  • lucyhyatt04 Dec 16, 2008

    Whenever I type an e-mail, this happens as well. In the middle of a sentence it moves to another line. Also, the cursor sometimes just disappers.

  • ProfKeith Dec 17, 2008

    When typing text the vertical cursor reappears anywhere within the text box creating gibberish, erasing lines, other seemingly random nonsense. I've looked at other posts and there are no adjustments in the control panel under mouse. The suggestion by one person, that I disable the touchpad and use a USB mouse just makes me mad that I purchased something new (2 weeks) that needs this kind of adjustment. However, one suggestion seems to have stopped the problem and that is to place the arrow in a corner. I have also experienced frustrating arrow freeze-up. Anyone have a better fix than parking the arrow?

    this worked thank you!!!

    What about pointer options>visibility>hide pointer when typing?



  • Kevin Nelson May 11, 2010

    Go to Mouse properties in Control Panel, check the Motion tab and see if the Smart Move box is checked.

Turn off your mouse pad and use a usb mouse. Sounds like your mouse pad is very sensitive.You can also go into your mouse properties and change the sensitivity.

Touch pad usb or wireless mouse ?
Laptops use the convenient touchpad and integrated scroll mouse that allow you to use just your finger to navigate Web pages, documents and open files and programs. Just like all other hardware, the laptop's integrated touchpad and mouse can experience errors and problems that cause you to lose functionality for a length of time. Whether the laptop's mouse is not working because of internal errors or conflicts with another device, several "tricks" can work to restore it.

Locate the function "Fn" button on your laptop in the lower left corner of the keyboard. Look in the keyboard's upper row (the F1 through F12 buttons) for an icon of a touchpad or computer mouse. This keyboard button acts as the toggle switch to enable and disable the built-in mouse and touchpad function. Press and hold the "Fn" button together with the mouse icon button. Look for the disable/enable symbol that briefly displays on your screen. Slide your finger over the laptop's mouse and attempt to use it as normal. Press the Windows keyboard key if using Windows 7, type "main.cpl" in the search box and press "Enter." Press the left arrow key to navigate over to the "Device Settings" tab. Press the tab key to reach the "Enable" button in this section. Press "Enter" on your keyboard. Press the tab key to reach the "Disable internal pointing device" check box. Press the space bar to remove the check mark. Put your finger on the touchpad, and move the pointer down to the "Apply" button. Click "Apply" to save the settings. Close the mouse "Properties" box. Press the keyboard "Windows" logo key to open the "Start Menu." Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer" menu. Press the up or down arrow key to highlight "Restart." Press "Enter" to restart your computer and attempt to use the laptop mouse as it should normally function. Open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Add and Remove" or "Uninstall" programs section. Highlight any secondary mouse devices in the list that you have installed for your laptop, such as an external USB mouse. Select the "Uninstall" option to remove any software and settings associated with this secondary mouse. Restart your computer and attempt to use the built-in laptop mouse as normal. Check to see if the mouse is working properly. Press the keyboard's "Windows" button to open the "Start Menu." Press the keyboard's arrow keys, "Enter" button and "Tab" to navigate to and open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Hardware and Sound" section, and press "Enter." Navigate to "Device Manager," and press "Enter" to open it. Find "Mice and other pointing devices from the list" and open its "Properties" dialog box. Select the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver." Allow Windows to search the Internet for drivers and to update them automatically. Restart your computer after the drivers are updated, and use your mouse as normal.

Sony vaio laptop is turning on but the keybord+mouse not working


If your Keyboard and mouse are PS2 type, turn off your system, unplug them and try a USB type mouse and keyboard instead. If you are already using USB type mouse and keyboard, then try plugging them into different USB ports. Bootup in Safe Mode if possible. If you do not have keyboard functionality during the initial boot process, you may have sustained damage to the motherboard. The fact you mentioned a noise (speaker type?) and then lost component function, would indicate a possible hardware failure
