Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

2 Answers

Mouse pointer randomly resets destroying my data.

It is 12/31/08. i have been searching for a solution to this problem since i purchased the machine a year ago. i have had the problem from day 1.

the mouse pointer randomly resets. it right-click, left-clicks, scrolls the screen, hi-lites and delete information. basically i cant do anything important because of the risk of loss of data. its a $700 waste of money at this point.


i have been searching for an answer for a year now. i have done all the "basic" troubleshooting ideas. so take note:

its not the drivers. i have updated them, reinstalled them, deleted them. no change.

its not a virus. it happens immediately after a fresh install of the o/s without internet connection. unless microsoft shipped a virus, its not a virus.

its not the mousepad. i have disabled and uninstalled the mousepad software and the problem is still prevalent.

let me repeat, i am looking for a solution that does not encompass drivers, virus, or hardware malfunction.

with that said, if you have a specific solution relating to the above qualifications, i will be glad to listen. but if your suggestion is a generic "scan for virus", "reinstall drivers" or "hardware malfunction", i have researched these options for months, to no avail.

i need a master diagnostician or someone who has had this particular problem and has found a solution. low-level generic ideas have been done to death.

if i find a solution to this problem here, happy new years to me!

but either way, happy new years to everyone else!

    mouse pointer goes crazy

    Have you tried using a different external mouse and if so, does this problem still occur? If yes, the motherboard's likely a problem and thereby the computer will need to be sent in for repairs.

A circle with a line going through it takes the place of my cursor on my computer?

Firstly, go to

Control Panel
Find Mouse
Click Pointers along the top

Ensure that your default pointer is the normal mouse, like so:


If not, press "Use Default" and it should reset the mouse pointer to normal.

If it looks like the mouse pointer is supposed to be normal in this screen, let me know and we'll see if there's something else wrong.

Monitor does not display picture,only the mouse pointer

If you're seeing only the mouse pointer it means there is likely a problem with your hard drive. Perhaps windows has a bad file. Has anything changed recently? Any new programs? A short? a strange smell?
