I have windows 7 acer aspire 57333. Just recently when I am replying to an email the cursor (mouse pointer) disappears when I am typing. It moves and if I am not looking it jumps to another line and inserts my typing on this particular line. I'm frustrated...please help!! Thanks

Go to Control Panel - Mouse

Select the Pointer Options tab

Uncheck Hide pointer while typing

Apply the change

I'm guessing you made a typo in post #1 and that you actually have a Acer Aspire 5733 laptop.

Are you using the touchpad or an external wired/wireless mouse?

If the mouse arrow is jumping around, it may be set too sensitive or you may be accidentally moving it.

Yes, I did make a type o. Sorry...I am using an external wireless Logitech mouse. Thanks for replying so quickly.

I personally use a Logitech Wireless Mouse M310 with my Dell Precision M6300 laptop because I find it much easier and quicker to navigate and perform functions than with using the touchpad.

Make sure the surface you're using it on isn't too smooth or reflective.

Make sure it has a good battery.

Make sure it's not too close to any electronic devices that may be interfering with the wireless signal.
