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.

I just purchased a new pc and it came with an Inland 70119 2.4GHZ wireless keyboard and mouse. The mouse works great, but I cannot get the keyboard to do anything. I have tried different batteries,...


If the keyboard and mouse came together, and the mouse works fine, and you've tired drivers, batteries, etc, then the only other possible issue is that the keyboard is bad.

Try connecting the keyboard and mouse to a different computer to verify this, otherwise replace the keyboard and see what happens.


Hope this helps

OK! Lets troubleshoot this together.

First thing we want to do is verify that your keyboard & mouse and plugged into the correct places and are powered up and able to work.

Turn your computer on and look at your keyboard and tell me if any lights are on to show that it has power and is operational.

Watch the keyboard lights until the computer gets to the login page and tell me if the lights come on and stay on? Or do the lights turn on for a moment and then turn off again?

If you do not see any lights, please clarify if there are NO LIGHTS on your style of keyboard or if there are lights but they are not lighting up.

If your keyboard has lights and they are not lighting up at all, then turn off the computer and unplug the mouse and keyboard and swap them around. Then turn the computer on again and tell me if the lights come on and the mouse and keyboard become operational.

Once we verify this we can continue to the next step of troubleshooting. Please report what you find and I will help you solve this.

Keyboard is frozen, mouse works but keyboard seems dead


Try an external USB keyboard or use the on-screen key board which is a feature of Windows - the mouse has to be working for the On-Screen keyboard to work. If any of these two remedies work, your Keyboard is bad.

How to make logitech keyboard & mouse work??


Hi there: I was also facing the same problem. But when you see on back of the keyboard the instructions are there. or follow these steps.
1. insert new batteries both in keyboard and mouse. 2. decide what device you want to connect 1st (Lets connect Keyboard first) 3. Pres and Hold the connect button for both key board and receiver for about 5 secs. 4. don't press any key on key board till 10 secs (During this time it trying to connect with receiver) 5. Check the key board connectivity if it works then take it away or put it behind some barrier so that when you are connecting the mouse it don't interrupt. 6. now for the mouse do the same process as you have connected the keyboard.(step 3 & 4) 7. now check both key board and mouse they will work fine. Thanks

Keyboard not working...


Have you pressed the connect button on the bottom (or side) of the keyboard. Having the mouse working means that all the rest of the kit is working, (as the reciever can connect to the mouse) if the keyboard will not connect (after pressing connect a few times)it seems that you have a dud transmitter in the keyboard, This does happen unfortunately (the oscilator crystal fails) if within warrantee try to get it replaced. Hope this helps

Wireless keyboard problem


just called Logitech support (who were more than helpful, very friendly, and picked up the phone within 5 minutes).
I have an MX3000 laser combo set and the receiver lost connection to the mouse last week. Then the keyboard went out a few nights ago. I had tried what everyone else here had tried to no avail.
So I decided to give a tech support line the benefit of the doubt and call one...
I'm very glad I did!
Here is the entire process for the Left Ctrl + Left Alt + F12 keys. First, when you hit these keys together, a box should pop up on screen to prompt you to reset the encryption sequence. That is what these keys are for. If nothing pops up on your screen (as was my case!), wait a few minutes for the button sequenece to time out, then hit these keys again. Make sure its L-Ctrl + L-Alt + F12 only. Within 2 seconds after that button combo, hit connect on the receiver. Within 2 seconds of that hit connect on the underside of the keyboard. Within 2 seconds of that, hit your Escape key on the keyboard. Sounds completely ridiculous, but this is the direction Logitech support drove me in. And it worked for me. And this is after I tried everything imaginable for over the past week.
We then moved on to the mouse, which i thought we had fixed. But now i have one working and one not working, so I think I need to re-run through this whole process to fix the second mouse. Basically, I now have 1 mouse that works on both receivers, on 2 different pc's with 2 different keyboards in two different rooms (both sets are MX3000 however).
The other now seems to have lost the signal. Will update if I get that second mouse to play nicely with me.
Hope this helps anyone about to trash a perfectly good unit like I was!
