I'm having trouble with my two month old Dell laptop. This problem started a month ago and is getting worse. I cannot type more than a couple of characters, before my cursor disappears. I have to click again at the end of the passage to continue. As well, while I'm browsing the internet (usually IE 10 but also using Chrome) I will frequently lose my cursor. Let's say I'm scrolling using my mouse, trackpad or keyboard (not clicking though). I will suddenly be unable to continue scrolling. I need to click somewhere in order to reestablish contact and then I can scroll in a variety of ways again. At the moment I lose my cursor, the top of the screen goes from blue to grey. If I allow it to turn grey and wait a few seconds, the grey will flash periodically. It's clear to me that the computer is doing something else that is pulling the cursor away from my screen. Any ideas?
