Acer 5220 extensa

I have had my acer extensa 5220 for less than 1 week and now I am having major probs in when I am typing in any programme the cursor keeps skipiing everywhere making a nonsense of any work and takes 3 x as long as I keep having to make corrections.

Also I am constantly seeing a message on screen from msoft -internet explorer asking if I want to run ActiveX or plug ins. When I use the mouse pad it just has a life of its own thanks for any help

I am not specifically familiar with your model, however I suggest you look for the panel with just one screw. I think you may be looking at the wrong panel.. This panel is probably about 2" x 3", and typically on the bottom. Removing a wrong panel will not do any harm, just re-position it, and replace the screw.
