I have tried to unplug and plug in. I have changed batteries. I have tried a different mouse. My keypad scroller also gives me difficulty. Could it be related the to power surge on the port hub message that comes up frequently. what do you suggest?

Sound as if you have picked up some malware, carry out in-depth virus checking with up to date anti-virus software, or use an on-line one such as "search and destroy"

7. Do some work on your computer for a while, If the touchpad is still too sensitive, return to the "Mouse" menu and continue to adjust the settings until you get them just the way you want them.

I must have hit a button and now the cursor is showing up on the big screen off the projector but I only want to see it on my laptop while doing my presentation.


Hi renee_pott, "You can choose the "Mouse Options" in the Control Panel.
First, click on the -> Start button -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Mouse ->
Mouse Properties -> Pointer Options.
Try one 'or' more options:
* Snap To, place a (Check in the box) !
* Hide pointer while typing !
* Show location of pointer when I press the {CTRL key} !
  • Usually the "Mouse" pointer by { Default }, is displayed during a slide presentation, and when the mouse is moved.
  • " Try pressing the {Ctrl + H keys to "Hide" the mouse pointer}."
  • Left-clicking on the "Mouse" button, will advance [forward] the slide show.
  • Pressing Ctrl + A keys, will restore the "Mouse" pointer.
!"Take a moment to rate the help."

Mouse pointer drfts to the right side of the screen. I have a touch pad and a mouse button on the keyboard. Even when I connected my usb mouse that pointer drifts as well. I'm not able to control the mouse...


see if your touchpad settings have a setting that controls the sensitivity on the area around the touchpad where you rest your hands on the laptop. I forget what it's called, but most laptops have a setting to control that, so when you rest your hands on the laptop it doesn't affect mouse movement. When you rest your hands, if the sesitivity is too high, the mouse pointer will move when you place your hands to rest on that area.

Cursor on my keypad jumps around


If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:

1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.

2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.

a. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.

b. Click Printers and Other Hardware.

c. Click Mouse.

d. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab.

e. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.

f. Click OK.

g. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.

3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.

4. After connecting an external mouse, uninstall the touchpad driver from the Device manager listed under the "mice and other pointing devices" category and restart the Computer.

5. Download the Touchpad driver compatible to the Operating System installed on the Computer from the manufacturer's site and install it after restarting the Computer.


Good luck!!!!!!!!!!

Acer zr1


hey
please elaborate on what exactly has happened..
if by mouse pointer jammed u mean touchpad not working
then first check if it has been accidentally disabled, in acer laptops press fn and then a key in blue colour which looks like a mouse pad in the f1-f12 series.
else, try attaching an usb mouse to check if the pointer is moving or if there is a problem wid your touchpad.
if not, it could be because of a virus which has changed ur registry files, in such a case the problem gets a little more complicated where in ull have to restore file,etc etc
for further keep free to mail me @
