SOURCE: my cursor jumps when i am writting a text

The keyboard is built in a way so that it is easy to accidentally tap the mousepad while you are typing. This will make your cursor jump., if you are using an external mouse, make sure to turn off the mousepad to avoid this issue by holding Fn and pushing the F7 button.

SOURCE: cursor continually jumps all over when trying to type

Touch pad mouse.
This unit has a "seamless touchpad with four-way integrated scroll button".
Yours is probably faulty, causing the cursor to be random.
Try disabling it and connecting a USB mouse.

SOURCE: My Acer Aspire One shows black screen only.

Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery The AA1 has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, making it possible to flash the BIOS even if the system doesn't boot anymore. It's only meant for emergencies and may void your warranty, so use at your own risk.

Follow every step carefully!

First format an USB stick with FAT.

Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.

If for some reason you made a mistake during the procedure and it doesn't reboot by itself wait 5 minutes before turning it off, just to be safe that it isn't still flashing the BIOS.

Download WIN98BOOT.ZIP and HPUSBFORMATTER from the internet normal bootable like a diskette won't work with a usb stick
I had mine 2 months it's a common problem with the notebook.
The onely thing that you have to do is download these programs with someone with a internet connection.

Good luck

THE CURSOR IS NOT DISPLAYED ON THE SCREEN OPERATING SYSTEM: WINDOWS 8.1 PRO PRODUCT :ACER ASPIRE ES1-512


the proposed solution is to edit one registry item. Here is how you do it:
1) From the desktop right-click on the start icon and then click 'Run'

2) In the Run box type in 'regedit' without the quote marks and click OK

3) this will open Windows Registry Editor, now navigate to this path by clicking on the folders in the left hand panel: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

4) Once you have opened the system folder you should look down the list that appears in the main box to the right of the panel until you find an entry called EnableCursorSupression double click this entry

5) This will bring up a box that has a value data of 1. Change this to 0 and click OK

6)Close the registry Editor and restart your computer
Let us know if this solution Works, Thanks,

I have a Logitech Laser Mouse #M-RBY125. While typing the cursor jumps to different places on the page or disappears completely. Windows automatically open for no reason. Sometimes highlights sentences...


To adjust your mouse movements: To change the pointer speed and customize your cursor, please do the following:
  1. Launch SetPoint (Start > Programs > Logitech > Mouse and Keyboard > Mouse and Keyboard Settings).
  2. Select the My Mouse tab and click the Mouse Movement tab on the left. Select the Wireless Mouse M505/B605 from the Select Mouse drop-down list.

Missing Cursor on Firefox


Hi there Lauren,

I think I've got you covered on this one.
I'd like to offer up a two solutions.
One may be the solution to the disappearing cursor.
Failing that, the other addresses the symptoms, instead of the problem, sort of a sideways solution. Hopefully the result will be satisfactory.
  • Click Start
  • Click Control Panel
  • Double-Click Mouse
  • Click on the Pointer Options Tab
  • In the Visibility Box, is the 'Hide cursor while typing' option checked?
  • If so, uncheck it.
  • If not, below it is an option to 'Show location of cursor when I press Control Key'. Check it.
  • Click Apply. Click OK
If the first option doesn't fix the mystery, the second will show the location of the cursor when you press the Control Key. One or the other will make that cursor show itself.

Letter writting problems


Do you use a laptop or some sort of keyboard with a mouse pad? My son used to have that problem when he would type as his thumb would accidentally hit the mouse pad and move the cursor. We solved it in a very low tech way by taping a notecard over the mouse pad when he was using the computer. Depending on the manufacurer, there are ways to turn off the mouse pad while continuing to use a mouse.

Cursor failure


Solution one:

it may be that your mouse is failing and you may need to to buy another, logitech,microsoft etc are very good mouse brands but cost around 30 - 80$. laser and wireless mouses work very well with desktop pc's. but however, if you do buy a new mouse and it does the same thing.


Solution two:

go to you mouse settings and disable "hide cursor while typing" this is a common mistake for mouse settings.

hope this helps you.
