Hi Charlotte, i hope i understood properly, but it appears that you have a possible issue with the keyboard & or the touchpad. As this is a new unit then the only advice to give is to contact Acer tech support (unit is under warranty) who should be able to guide you through the issue.
It sounds like there is a problem with the touchscreen. Seems to have a bad spot and thinks it is being touched. In device manager of the control panel, you should be able to disable it under human user device. Double click on that to make sure that is it and select "do not use this device" or "disable" to see if that is the problem. Also, the drivers of the wireless kb and mouse may not be compatible with win8 and interfering with the touch screen.
sure that you are not placing the hand on the touchpad while typing....
This might be due to the drivers issue with the touchpad.. Try to
unistall the drivers of touchpad from the device manager.. Then install a
fresh copy from the dell website(www.support.acer.com).. If the issue is yet to be fixed please contact Acer to replace the touchpad....
If the mouse totally stop working like left/right click, moving, etc then i suggest replace the battery of your mouse and try. If the same result then again install the driver & restart the netbook.
Thanks waiting for your feedback.
Regarding the touchpad (curser pad), there maybe a problem with your touch pad driver not working or starting up. Check in "msconfig" (you can click on start and run, then type msconfig to bring it up) and click on the startup tab to check which of the startup items are not working.
Also regarding the card reader, i believe the drivers are not installed. Check in Device Manager (click on start /control panel /system icon /device manager) and see what is listed under "other devices"
Your laptop should have software pre-installed for your touchpad. This should probably be in the Control Panel. Once you find the software there should be options to change the sensitivity. Hope I helped.
