Most laptops have a way of enabling/disabling the touchpad, you can find this in your manual or on the Toshiba website. If you actually mean there is no visible pointer then you have a software problem and its probably easier to run a recovery after backing up your data.

Slow the mouse down on windeows 8


Although you don't specify which model, since you posted under the "Logitech Cordless Mouse" heading, I assume you have a Logitech mouse. In my experience, even modestly advanced (e.g., cordless, >2 buttons, etc.) Logitech mice don't always play well with mouse & keyboard settings tools found in Windows' Control Panel. Mr. Freeman's suggested adjustment to the generic Windows mouse management settings might be adequate for now. However, you're always better off using software specifically designed for your product.

The program you need is called SetPoint, and it's the key to getting full use out of your mouse or other Logitech device. All versions of the SetPoint software, and drivers for Logitech products, are available for free download at the Logitech support website. Here's the link:

Cursor not showing up


Well the touchpad driver could be erased or a virus may have damaged it.
You should go to Acers website and then support and download drivers and get the right touchpad driver.

Install it and see if it works.
Use TAB to navigate for now. or use mouse keys.
This means keep pressing shift really fast and accessibility option will show up.
Use tab and space bar to navigate to MOUSE TAB and select Mouse Keys and hit enter.
Done for now you can use the numpad to operate the cursor.
Second option is to go out and buy a USB mouse.

Worst case scenario: Touchpad is damaged and needs replacing.
Or simply a cable got disconnected and needs reconnecting by taking the laptop apart
Get Your Laptop Mouse to Show Up if It Disappears
Using a laptop is as efficient as a desktop computer to complete tasks, use the Internet and talk with friends on a daily basis.
If your laptop's mouse cursor disappears, there are various tricks and solutions available to help get your mouse pointer back to resume your work and current computer tasks within minutes.
And this can be accomplished without the use of software applications or advanced computer skills.
Press "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "Delete" and choose "Task Manager" if your mouse pointer becomes available, pressing the keys simultaneously.
This will allow you to close any open programs that may be causing issues with your mouse pointer.
Plug in an external mouse to allow the computer to attempt to find the device, prompting the mouse pointer to appear which may solve the problem or allow you to temporarily work with a mouse pointer.

Reboot your computer by pressing and holding the laptop's power button for a few seconds.
This will reset your laptop's current open settings and most often allow your computer's mouse pointer to reappear.

Upgrade your laptop's video and graphic card drivers (if available) to ensure the mouse pointer disappearing or flickering is not a hardware issue.
Select "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Hardware and Sound" > "Device Manager" to view your current graphic and video settings.
Visit your device manufacturer's official website to download the most current version of your drivers.

How can I change my cursor?


Hi, I was wondering what Operating System you're using. But if you have Windows 7 (this could be similar to Windows Vista), all you have to do is just click the "start button or windows button" on your keyboard.

You will see that there is a search box, please type in "mouse," then hit the "ENTER" button on your keyboard.

You will be directed to the Mouse Properties window, you need to select on the "Pointers" tab, highlight "Normal Select," and click on "Browse."
eibraz_8.jpg


You will now see the available mouse pointers on your system. You may select the one you want and hit "Open."

You will be routed back to the "Pointers tab" and you'll now see that on the Normal Select, the mouse pointer you chose is now showing. To make the changes take effect, hit on "APPLY," then "OK."
