Remove the all the screws from the bottom side of the case. Lift the top of the case up just a few inches. Directly under the mouse pad, there is a little ribbon about a 1/4 inch wide. Pull it from the mother board. It may be easier to remove the keyboard to access this ribbon.

Acer aspire 5520 mouse pointer problem it freezes or moves around the screen by itself


Glad to HELP YOU!

First of all try to clean your touch pad with a SOFT CLOTH gently soaked in a GLASS CLEANER fluid. Make that as good as you can and you will remove all the dirst that may occur during the function of your computer, generating "fake movements" of the cursor.
Second: go to
START > CONTROL PANEL > MOUSE icon > DEVICE SETTINGS
and disable touch pad or check box to hide cursor while you are typing.

GOOD LUCK!

"Tapping" has dissapeared from Mouse section in Control Panel


ok, im not sure how into the settings you have explored, but here is one way to enable the tapping again, select control panel, go to printers and other hardware, next select mouse, next select the last tab on the page that pops up, click settings, then you should see a page that shows settings for your installed device, i think the second option down should say "tapping" click the check box to enable... hope this helps!

Cursor continually jumps all over when trying to type


Touch pad mouse.
This unit has a "seamless touchpad with four-way integrated scroll button".
Yours is probably faulty, causing the cursor to be random.
Try disabling it and connecting a USB mouse.

Acer aspire 5520 startup problem


Michelle-

I had the same problem with the cursor jumping around. My cousin bought the same computer and had the same problem! What she told me to do was go to the touchpad icon on the bottom right. Then click tapping and then check the box that says "tap off when typing."
It seems to have worked for us.
