I just brought dell inspiron 15 3000 series laptop with Ubuntu and installed windows 8.
For some reasons it does not show mouse cursor. during installation it doesn't show cursor and after installation it is not showing cursor at all.
I installed dell touch pad drivers with all other important chipset drivers but still cursor disappear.
Strange thing is, when i plugin external mouse then cursor appears and when i remove external mouse then again cursor disappear magically.
Anyone know how to solve this problem?
I would suggest you to update the BIOS on the system. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the BIOS from BIOS section onto the system and install it.
Also, we need to check if the issue is caused due to any application installed on the system. So please clean boot the system using the link below and then reinstall the touchpad drivers on the system.
Please let me know if this helps.
