Try to restart your computer. Since the mouse isn't working you will need to press and hold the power button. If the mouse is wireless, then check to ensure that it has good batteries or is charged. Also, if it is wireless, try pressing the button to "link" it to the base station. The base station will also have a button to push. If it is not wireless, check to ensure that it is connected to the computer. If it is connected to a USB hub and not directly to the computer, then try connecting it directly into the computer and restarting once again. Sorry to hear of this problem. Best Wishes!

Cursor not showing up


Well the touchpad driver could be erased or a virus may have damaged it.
You should go to Acers website and then support and download drivers and get the right touchpad driver.

Install it and see if it works.
Use TAB to navigate for now. or use mouse keys.
This means keep pressing shift really fast and accessibility option will show up.
Use tab and space bar to navigate to MOUSE TAB and select Mouse Keys and hit enter.
Done for now you can use the numpad to operate the cursor.
Second option is to go out and buy a USB mouse.

Worst case scenario: Touchpad is damaged and needs replacing.
Or simply a cable got disconnected and needs reconnecting by taking the laptop apart
Get Your Laptop Mouse to Show Up if It Disappears
Using a laptop is as efficient as a desktop computer to complete tasks, use the Internet and talk with friends on a daily basis.
If your laptop's mouse cursor disappears, there are various tricks and solutions available to help get your mouse pointer back to resume your work and current computer tasks within minutes.
And this can be accomplished without the use of software applications or advanced computer skills.
Press "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "Delete" and choose "Task Manager" if your mouse pointer becomes available, pressing the keys simultaneously.
This will allow you to close any open programs that may be causing issues with your mouse pointer.
Plug in an external mouse to allow the computer to attempt to find the device, prompting the mouse pointer to appear which may solve the problem or allow you to temporarily work with a mouse pointer.

Reboot your computer by pressing and holding the laptop's power button for a few seconds.
This will reset your laptop's current open settings and most often allow your computer's mouse pointer to reappear.

Upgrade your laptop's video and graphic card drivers (if available) to ensure the mouse pointer disappearing or flickering is not a hardware issue.
Select "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Hardware and Sound" > "Device Manager" to view your current graphic and video settings.
Visit your device manufacturer's official website to download the most current version of your drivers.

The mouse


Hello there.

I recommend doing the following:

1) Shut down the computer (you can hold down the power button on the front of the computer base unit or laptop power button for a few seconds instead of using the mouse)
2) Unplug the mouse base station.
3) Plug the mouse base station in again
4) Turn on the computer and let it start up as normal.
5) Watch for any system messages appearing, like found new hardware.

These steps will verify that there is not a problem with the mouse's base station plugged into the computer. Another thing to check is if the mouse requires batteries, this is often overlooked.

If after doing this there is still no pointer registered, i would suggest trying the mouse in another computer, and if possible trying a different mouse on the same computer.

If the mouse works on another computer then it could be a software problem, which we can help you with.

If the mouse doesn't work on another computer, but a different mouse works fine on the same computer, then im afraid your mouse has to be replaced.

Please post back after trying the above steps and let us know. Telling us which mouse you have exactly will futher help.
Hope this helps.

Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is


If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.

Try going to control panel, then personalization, then mouse pointers. Under mouse properties, go to pointers and try to use windows black (system scheme). See if changing your mouse poiners makes it appear.
