Hi! I have been having some trouble with my computer lately and I was wondering if I could please get some help. I have an Acer Aspire 5 and it was working perfectly fine then like two weeks ago it started doing this weird thing where it will glitch. For example, I will be typing on docs or a search engine and the mouse will randomly unclick and I have to re-click to continue typing. It is very frustrating because it happens every 30 seconds so it really slows me down. I've also noticed that it happens when I'm not typing as well. For example, if I have an app open it will unclick and I have to re-click on the app to continue using it. I have no idea what could be causing this. I would really appreciate some advice, thank you! :)

First troubleshooting step is to try another mouse.
Post back what happens with a different mouse.

The Acer Aspire 5 laptop comes in numerous models.
Can you advise us what the exact SNID number is on yours?

Liz brought out a good point.
You didn't clarify if your "mouse" is part of that laptop's touchpad or if it's a separate external USB wireless mouse.

I'm glad to hear your laptop's touchpad mouse resolved its issue. (y)
