    I cant get the cursor to move at all by this method. It is frozen on the desktop. I can switch user and the cursor is fine signed on in there. I have looked for a way to access the cursor via control panel in there but it only seems to work for that user only.

    thanks

I used the tab and up and down buttons which i thought were not highlighting. Upon closer inspection i could see that that the screen was too light to see it. upon rectifying the darkness i used the tab key and up and down buttons alternatively and between them both managed to get into the 'pointer' folder. Thanks for your help. brill. Alls well now.Top marks. Cheers.

Press the Windows or Start button on your keyboard, and use TAB, or your down arrows to move to the Control Panel. Use Enter to make a choice, until you get to the cursor.

    Can you attach a mouse to the laptop? That might get your cursor moving again.

    When you say "cursor", do you mean the mouse cursor, or the typing cursor?

    If you can get a mouse working, the ultimate solution would be to uninstall the joypad via the Device Manager, reboot, and reinstall the drivers. Make sure you have the software for the pad before doing this!

Try googling windows 7 drivers for the name of your sound card
You can find the name of it, in "device manager", under "properties" of "my computer"
Usually though vista drivers work with windows 7

Or you can open windows update, and see if there is any "optional" updates
There might be listed a sound driver for your windows 7

Another option is download "Driver Genius" free version
Lets you see what drivers you need, however you need to pay to actually download the drivers

You can just copy the name of the driver and google it yourself

Goodluck

Hi, I have an Acer laptop with Vista OS. Like many others, I have a prolem with the curser, jumping all over the screen, causing a lot of typing mistakes/ problems. Is there aby fix for that?


I think what is happening is the heal of your palm is touching the touchpad. Try going in to the Control panel and lowering the sensitivity.

try a CTRL+ALT+DELETE and select Start Task Manager and see if you can turn off some stuff to see if you can correct it. If you do it and it keeps happening and the same thing needs to be shut down try to see what it is related to and try to uninstall it.

I cant get my mouse pad to work after turning it off in control panel. Im on windows vista and on a lap top. Curser wont work so cant go back in to turn it on again.


Hold the Alt key and press F4. Press Enter to shut down the computer.

Once it's shut down, press the POWER button on the computer's system box to turn the computer on again and reset it back to normal.

Hope this works.

Scrambled text in acer laptop


You are still under waranty through Acer. It would be better for you to call Acer (number should be in you're manual). I'll bet they tell you to re-install windows. Fonts in you're system seem to be corrupt.
Acer info below. (Click on the link).

You have done big mistake that's why you are getting problem.

1)Regarding installation of win XP over windows vista.
You have to install first lower version and then higher version i.e. you should install first win xp and then windows vista. But vice-versa you can't do it.
So my suggestion is that format your c drive then install win XP
after installation win XP install win vista.

2) which operation system do you want to open .
You can remove it using windows tweak utility software wich is freely available on most of the website. Also you can manually edit it.
For manually do this.( i m not sure about windows vista it is available or not)
right click on my computer->click on Advanced Tab->setup and recovery framework click on settings->click on Edit button
You will see the boot.ini file. You can remove the windows XP line from that file.
