Re: Laptop Help

It seems as if your system is freezing not the key pad and mouse,,,

You can try restoring to a previous date and if that dont work you may have bad memory ..

My Cursor pointer is frozen. The arrow is frozen but if I move the mouse and it blindly finds a tab and I click it that works but no movement of the arrow until I reboot

Does it happen on a specific application or all over your screen? Are you using a special mouse/tracking ball/pointing device? Is this a laptop or a desktop? if you use a USB "simple" mouse does it work. Seems to me like a driver problem.

Why does my cursor freezes it does it for about 20 minutes and starts again for abit

There could be a number of problems why this is happening, first try replacing the mouse itself, this may be the primary problem, second try defragmenting the harddrive to clean up the deleted file holes. If you have a system diagnostisc program run a test on the mouse to see if it gives you any errors. Also try updating the mouse driver of your manufactor. But I suggest investing in a new mouse. If this is a laptop then the mouse pad may be intermittenly causing you some problems, try using a external mouse like a USB type and see if the problem persists.

Had laptop repaired,did system restore but gone

Hi there,
Try to get a normal mouse in a shop, cheap and with no install of drivers or use your friends, then try to run chkdsk from the computer with the new mouse, normally you find it here :
start- my computer- c:- right click and then choose properties (the last one on the menu), then select the second tab and then select the first choose (check drives for errors) check all the possibilities and press ok to restart the computer, and see id it is gone now after it has run.
IF NOT then you need to reinstall your mouse driver, you can try in the first place to reinstall it above the old installed files with the provided cd rom. If it not works you need to remove the installation for the mouse, you can find it in "add and remove" programs in "control panel" and the reboot the computer and then reinstall the driver
If it is a plug and play mouse (that means you do not have any drivers installation, widows did install it by itself), then you need to plug the mouse in go to, start- control panel- administration-computeradministration- then choose the computer icon ( I do not know the name in English, because I use the danish version), but there you can see all the hardware on the computer, there you choose the mouse and find your mouse and then right click on the mouse and choose remove. after that you have to reboot the computer and then connect it again and then it should work

IF the above is not working I suggest to reinstall the operating system Windows, but before that then make sure to save all your documents and pictures etc, because it delete all the content

Hope that helps
Have a nice time over there

Acer Vista Laptop and cursor nightmare!!

Hi -
I've been having the same problem and it is MAJORLY annoying to be typing along, and have the cursor reappear on another line!

I had a heck of a time finding the place to disable the touchpad, since we use a USB mouse with the laptop. Turns out, someone else helped me find a simple way - hold down the Fn key (next to the left side CNTRL key), and hit F7. That toggles the touchpad off/on easily!

Also suggested by someone else, some mice can cause erratice behavior with Acer laptops, so perhaps try another mouse?

So far, I've been typing this response AFTER disabling the touchpad, and the cursor has not jumped around at all.

Good luck! : )
