After using the touch screen few times and trying to use touchpad for small button clicks, mouse cursor just disappeared and can't find it. But when I exit web browser, I see mouse curson back on backscreen. When I open browser again, it disappears. Only way I can get back my mouse cursor back is restarting the laptop.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Lately my pointer is disappearing after i login from sleep or locked computer.

I had this problem in the past but it got solved after i restored my PC, now it came back to haunt me.
I am guessing some updates disrupted with the mouse cursor (not an expert opinion).

I've tried many things but the issue seems to be persistent.

Here are some things I've tried with no results:

Changing the pointer options (hide while you type, pointer trails, ctrl to highlight) and combinations of them.

I tried using different pointers (Black, White, Black small, etc)

Also tried using troubleshooting the software changes, sfc /scannow, clean registry with ccleaner, rebooting (many times).

It seems to be a problem with no concrete solution.

The only solution that I found is (Clt-Alt-Del) it changes the screen and the pointer appears again, if I lock the computer it is gone once more.

If somebody can help i would appreciate it.

thanks

The mouse on my Twist is only visible when moving it. It constantly filckers while moving and disappears as soon as I stop moving it.
I am currently running Windows 10 but had the same issue with 8.1 that went away eventually. I'm not sure how.
I updated to the current BIOS for Windows 10.
Drivers installed seem to have higher numbers than what's available on the support site.
This problem occurs with any built in or external mouse.

As the title states, my mouse cursor disappears when I'm running something on fullscreen, but works as normal on windowed fullscreen and such. It started happening a while ago but I haven't booted something on fullscreen for some time, so I can't exactly pinpoint when (but it's around 1~2 months ago).

I've been trying to troubleshoot this issue for a while now, but nothing yet has worked for me. I've tried changing mouse control panel options (pointer trail that wasn't enabled at all in the first place; change mouse pointers, disable shadows, etc etc), screen DPI to all available and custom sizes and even tinker with application settings. None of it has worked thus far.

Does anyone else have any idea what might be the source of this issue?

Thank you so much in advance!

I have had a U500v Asus touchscreen for a little over a month now. I haven't used it very much so I am still getting used to Windows 8, but have had no problems till today: I just woke my laptop from hibernation, and the mouse cursor was visible until I entered my password to login. It then disappears.

I have tried rebooting and fully powering off many times, and in both scenarios my mouse cursor is visible and useable to select the box to type in my password, and then it disappears after I hit or click enter to login. It's not just invisible, as I have tried clicking on things when I have positioned my cursor (while still visible) and then tried to select things when it disappears, so the cursor is just completely not there anymore.

I have tried updating drivers on the touchpad, but Windows tells me I have the best drivers already.

I have tried fn+f9 out of desperation, too, to no avail.

Can anyone suggest any other alternatives that might retrieve my mouse cursor?

Many thanks
 

A:Mouse cursor disappears on Asus laptop after logging in

I'm assuming that this is happening with the use of the touchpad, not with using a mouse.

Install the latest touchpad driver from Asus's web site. If Asus does not offer it then install the latest driver from the touchpad manufacturer's site. Then, if necessary, check the touchpad settings to see if there is some option doing that nasty deed.

Hello,
I use multiple displays (one of the displays is touch screen) connected in an "extended display mode" on a windows 7 SP1 64 bit OS.

The problem: once I touch the touch screen, the mouse cursor jumps over to the touch screen, from its position on the non-touch screen.

I've also tried a PS-2 mouse, same issue, and have tested every USB port and all work fine so it is NOT a hardware issue that I can see. I've tried rebooting and doing a system restore, and I have the same issue in safe mode. When I go to device manager, it rcognizes the device and says everything is working properly. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, nothing. Everything else seems to be fine on my PC. Any help will be most appreciated, thank you!

Is this a laptop or a desktop? What is the make and model# of your computer/motherboard?
Boot into Setup (Bios) go to Integrated Peripherals look for Legacy USB or USB mouse, if it is disabled, using the arrow key, Enable it. Save and Exit.
Go to the computer manufacturers support/download drivers site. type in your make and model # and download the Chipset driver (for USB Support)
Also, go to Start/Search and type CMD Right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type SFC /scannow and press enter. This will replace any missing or corrupted system files.

Ok to tell you things from the start I cleanup computers for the public I have a phone/computer repair shop, I received a computer 2 weeks ago and I turned it on and is was windows 8 and I logged in. After logging in I was faced with a black screen and a cursor, thinking it was a virus I hit ctrl + alt + del and started the task manager and opened my flash drive with my anti virus scanners. Avg or Sophos was the one that finally killed it once it was removed the desktop just popped right up no issues and I finished cleaning and done. I haven't heard from the customer since so there was no issues. I got a call from a lady about a mile down the road from him saying her computer was need cleaning so I brought it in and cleaned it only a couple of high risk viruses but got those done and I put avg antivirus when done and it was out the door. A few days later that same lady called back saying there was a black screen on her computer. She brought it in and this computer is running windows 7 and it had the same what I call virus on it that the windows 8 one had ran the virus scans and done. She told me it happened after doing a flash player update. That was last week. I just received a call saying the windows 7 computer has a black screen again after trying to update windows, what I'm trying to figure out is this a virus or what, and what is causing it? A simple virus removal gets rid of it but why does it keep happening?

Hi all:I hope that this is the right board for this problem, even though it may not be primarily a "Touch" issue.  My problem is that I keep losing my pointer/cursor on my HP laptop. Here are my specs and details of the problem based on a set of questions that I found on another thread: What make / model computer? HP Pavilion 15-n216us What operating system? Windows 10 64bit upgraded from Win 8. Does the mouse left alone disappear or are you clicking on something and then it just disappears? It only (and always) happens when I touch the screen. The cursor disappears instantaneously when I touch the screen. It happens whether I have a USB mouse plugged in or not. How do you normally resolve the issue? Except for restarting the laptop, the only way that I can get the cursor back is to go to Personalize/Themes/Mouse Pointer settings. I then have to close the Mouse Pointer settings windows (clicking OK) while shaking the mouse. How is your mouse connected to your computer? Wireless but as stated above, it also happens when the mouse is not plugged in. One screen or two screens? If one, have you ever used two? One screen, never two. More information:1) The cursor is not set to disappear when typing.2) I read that this could be a problem with the Touchpad, so I downloaded the Synaptics Pointing Device driver for my laptop from the HP website.

Hello, I have a Dell laptop 15R 2nd Gen i-5 processor running Windows 7 Home 64bit.

The problem I am having is this: Mouse disappears on right side of screen. The entire right side of screen (not just in the lower corner). If I move the mouse 6 inches to the right off screen, then I would have to move it 6 inches to the left again until it re-appears. If I moved the pointer 1 foot to the right, I would have to move it 1 foot to the left until the pointer re-appeared again.

It's as if the pointer kept going on to a hidden screen??

A:Satellite U840T - Mouse disappears right of the screen and bottom

Hi

I?m confused.
Your issue isn?t described very well.

What do you mean exactly by: ?Mouse disappears right of the screen and bottom in black bars at the top??
Do you mean the touchpad or cursor?
The notebook?s touchpad supports the Gesture control feature (Multi Touch) and this feature could be configured in touchpad settings:
+Control panel -> mouse -> Device settings tab -> Settings+

There you can find also the option called ?Edge swipes? which opens the Charms bar, app Switcher, and Application bar just by moving finger from the edge of the touchpad in towards the center.

In such case the cursor would not be visible.

I have a 3 month old Yoga 720 13IKB that is now experiencing touchpad issues. I can move the cursor around fine but the left or right click/taps do not work when I hover over an icon. Once I use the touchscreen to open the app, the cursor then works normally. Sometimes the cursor will freeze but I can tap the touchscreen and the touchpad will work normally again. It can be a bit glitchy but is mostly usable. It started exhibiting these issues today after putting my laptop into sleep mode. There is no rhyme or reason to this issue. It happens sporadically.  I have tried to uninstall the mouse drivers but all the options are greyed out. I have adjust the pointer settings as well. Nothing seems to be working to resolve it. I unistalled the Lenovo Vantage software and I also updated the BIOS which was the only update in the Vantage software before I uninstalled it. Another thing I attempted to do was to download the Wacom drivers for the touchpad but none exist. There are also no touchpad drivers listed on the Lenovo drivers site. I am really enjoying this laptop but this touchpad issue is driving me a bit crazy. Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi, I have an office desktop pc (HP COMPAQ ELITE 8100) running 64-bit Windows 7. I was manually running Windows update and manually updating some of my drivers when the pc suddenly turned itself off.

I turned it back on and now it doesn't get to the login screen anymore. It just displays a black screen with a movable mouse cursor although I can't really click anything or even press any keys on the keyboard.

I tried loading into the recovery environment but it only gives me the option to restore my hard drive to factory settings, which I don't want since I have lots of important files in it.

I've searched around the forums but I can't find a problem that is EXACTLY like mine.

By the way, my pc is on a dual boot mode with an Ubuntu 11.10 and that is how I'm able to access this forum right now. The dual boot was set-up by the employee that I replaced so I have no idea how this is set-up.

The issue started a few hours ago when I was playing League of Legends, specifically when the game has finished its loading and crashed to Desktop which is a common problem on my laptop. As usual I would restart the game, but before I could do that explorer.exe crashed, my entire Desktop has turned to the familiar transparent whitish filter before the "Explorer.exe has crashed" message popped out, which was peculiar at the time because this is the first time it had happened.

So I allowed the program to restart, it didn't. So I shut down via holding down the power button and rebooted the laptop. It went into Startup Repair, and did its automated repair, so I let it repair while I did my stuff. When I returned, the repair had completed and it booted the laptop into the infamous Black Screen of Death with a movable mouse cursor.

Do you have your screen adjusted right? It's possible to set a monitor so the image is too big to fit on the screen, and if so, this would let the mouse "dissapear" off the edge(s). Also, do you have a second monitor connected, if your computer detects two displays it could set the image to "horizontal span," which would make one image from two monitors, letting the mouse move between them.

When I boot up my laptop it goes to a black screen with a cursor and that's it. I tried this solution from a couple years ago: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/HP-G72-b66US-Notebook-PC-Dosn-t-Boot-into-Wind... and it's not working.

I've got a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series laptop I'm helping a friend try and fix.
I believe it has Windows 8 Pro.
After powering up past the bios screen and the "starting windows" screen, it is just a black screen showing the mouse cursor, which moves around without issue. It does the exact same thing in safe mode.
I've tried loading last good configuration, the dell diagnostics, the Kaspersky rescue disc, and reseating the ram.
Not sure where to go from here.

Hi, i ve noticed something weird with my mouse cursor, its happened on both my old CRT monitor and my new LCD monitor.

on the left side of the screen, my mouse cursor can go completely off the viewable screen, and if pushed all the way to the right, part of the cursor can be seen on the left edge of the viewable screen.

could this be a video driver problem?

I have an NVIDIA geforce4 integrated GPU, and im also trying to find a 2004 driver update for that, please help me if anybody can!
 

A:mouse cursor able to move of the screen, why?

Your problem seems to be that you have activated the multiple monitor feature, but there's no second monitor connected. To try this, open a program (the calculator wil be fine) and then try to move the window off the screen completely. If you can do this, then you have the multiple monitor feature on.

To disable this, rigth click a free space in the desktop, and click on properties. Go to the Configuration tab, and you'll see two monitors. Select the left one, right click it and disable it. Press Ok, and all the problems gone.

You can find all the nVidia drivers in www.nvidia.com

I've seen a lot of posts on the internet about a black screen after a reboot. My problem is similar but it happens after I lock windows (Win->L). I get a black screen and can see/move the mouse cursor around but cannot ever get the login screen again. Crtl-Alt-Delete does nothing. I end up having to do a hard reboot. I'm running Vista Ultimate 64 on an ASUS p6t board. I've checked the event logs and there is nothing before the hard reboot. Any ideas?

This will happen if your partition table got corrupted. U would try these methods.

Boot from your vista cd and select repair my computer>startup repair. If still unsolved, Boot from your vista dvd repair my computer>select command prompt and type these commands,

bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /RebuildBcd

Let me know the result....

Hi guys. I hope you can help. I have windows xp sp3. When my pc boots it only shows a black screen with a mouse cursor that I can move. ctrl alt delete doesnt work. Neither did system restore.

Someone told me that I could have picked up some malware. How can I get rid of it?

ORIGINAL POST:
Does anyone have any idea why the pointer to my mouse falls off the screen.
I was online and sent an e-mail and then the mouse cursor fell off the left side of the screen and will not come back.
I've connected three different mouses/mice. One to the standard mouse port, didn't work.
One to the usb port, cordless, doesn't work.
One to the usb port, trackball, doesn't work. You can fling the trackball and make the cursor fly up onto the screen and it falls nearly as fast down to the bottom left and disappears.
I've run spybot search and destroy and removed all problems found.
My Norton Antivirus is expired but I can't download the new one because I can't navigate their site.
I've tried to install a disc copy and the installation stops and says that a newer version is installed and needs to be removed before I can install the 2007 version and try to run a Norton virus scan.
I've re-installed the Logitech mouse software. Nothing has worked.
Has anyone heard of this and know how to fix it?

I was instructed by someone over in the forums to post your hijack logs to post my problem here:

For some reason, my mouse cursor after a few minutes of use will freeze up on my screen. The icon will not move, however, if I were to pull the mouse down and to the left and click, the start menu would pop up. I hope I'm explaining clear enough the situation. The actual image of the cursor itslef does not move, however, I can still move and use the mouse, but I cannot see where I am moving it to, I just have to guess where it is on the screen and click becuase the mouse cursor image is frozen. While the cursor is frozen in its one position, the icon changes in accordance to where the real arrow is on the screen (text cursor over a text input area, finger pointer when I'm over a link, etc.).

In safe mode however, I do not seem to experience this problem. I've run every possible anti virus and adware programs possible, and cleaned up my hijack entry to the extreme. I've also tried a different mouse but I still experience the same problem. I had a feeling from the start it was some software/device issue because the mouse works, but I just can't see what I'm doing, and this happens on any mouse used on my PC. I've also reinstalled the driver to make sure that wasn't it, but nothing helped.

If anyone has any suggestions on what to do, please let me know. Thanks.
 

A:Mouse Cursor Freezes On Screen

I've had the same problem since yesterday !
Coincidence or new threat ?
I doubt it could be a threat as I'm well protected.
Recently I'm experiencing a highly low performance of my computer and I'm looking into it. One of the problem seemed to be the connect software from Sony for the new NW-a3000 mp3 jukebox, seemed to be installed twice (thank to an update ?).
As a test I'm monitoring the speed of unpacking RAR archives. Before I was around 4000 kb/s in the good moments. And then it went to 400 kb/s !!
After uninstalling the connect software I was more like around 1100 kb/s ...

I'm still not sure about that but now I saw that some of my partition are highly (>50%) fragmented, especialy my download partition. I'm then running diskeeper to clean a little.

One possible cause of the cursor problem I would see is that when I run uTorrent for example (bittorrent download) with 5 or 6 big files downloading I have a slow mouse cursor. Could be that at some point It get lot.

I'm also suspecting a software I'm using : YourUninstaller. It looks after an unistall all possible left regsitry keys, and there are often a lot found. I'm almost sure that 99% of them should be removed, but what if an important registry key is removed and I'm not careful enough ... I'm always suspecting that software to maybe cause problems on my computer.

If all my investigation doesn't give any result I'll install a fre... Read more
