I have an Acer E3-111 that I bought less than a year ago. It's my fourth Acer PC, and I've generally been very happy with the company's products and support.
I upgraded to Windows 10 from the preinstalled Win 7 a few months ago, and I have had serious problems with my touchpad/cursor ever since. The cursor stops moving or jumps, and when I try to select text, it often freezes in the middle of the selection process. It's making the computer unusable.
I contacted Acer and got the driver update, but it did not work. I contacted Acer again, and spoke to a very rude gentleman who said he could do nothing for me. I contacted Microsoft and one of their techs took remote access of my PC and did something that briefly helped, but then the problem returned.
I considered going back to Win 7, but I no longer have the restore point -- too much time had passed, and the old installation got deleted on a system cleanup. Acer eventually sold me my original system installation on a USB for about $50, but did not tell me it would require a full system wipe, which I don't want to do.
Does anyone have any idea how to fix these cursor problems on the E3-111 in Windows 10?
