A sudden disappearance of the mouse cursor from your Asus Windows 10 system might not be very rare. While the situation when the Asus cursor disappears on Windows 10 is pretty freaky, it’s likely to occur after a Windows update or after switching the system from sleep mode to normal mode.
No Cursor on Asus Laptop: Try these Fixes
Despite the issue being absolutely ridiculous, there are various ways to get rid of it without any difficulty as such. We have listed each of them here in this section to help you get rid of the issue quickly.
Solution 1: Update the Mouse Drivers
The first and foremost solution to this issue involves updating the mouse drivers. This is because drivers can be responsible for several problems. Hence, to perform a mouse driver update, follow the steps mentioned below.
- First, press the Windows key and then type “device”. Select ‘Device Manager’ from the list and hit the Enter button.
- After that, from the device list, select and expand “Mice and other pointing devices”.
- Choose your mouse and then right-click on it. Click on “Update driver” and then press Enter. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the installation.
Solution 2: Enable the Mouse Again
As mentioned earlier, you are most likely to confront this issue if you have upgraded to a newer version of Windows recently. Besides, you may also encounter it if the system was in sleep mode. Below we have provided you two ways to re-enable the mouse.
Function key for Laptop Users
Press the keys that turn your mouse on/ off. Mostly, it is Fn and F3, F5, F9 or F11, though it strongly depends on the laptop model you are using. It is recommended to follow the laptop manual to know the process for your laptop.
Use the Mouse Settings
Another way in which you can re-enable your mouse is by using the mouse settings. Here the steps you need to follow.
- Firstly, press the Windows key and then type “mouse” within the search bar. Locate the Mouse settings and press Enter.
- Now go to ‘Additional Mouse Settings’
- Once the Mouse Properties window appears, go to the Buttons tab.
- Open the Device Settings (tab name may vary according to your mouse) and then press Tab from the keyboard. This should highlight the Enable button. Press Enter.
Solution 3: Use Windows Troubleshooter
If the problem does not get resolved, then we recommend you to launch the inbuilt troubleshooter of Windows. Here are the steps by which you can do that.
- Go to Start and type ‘settings’ within the search bar. Select Troubleshoot from the options displayed.
- Now within the “Find and fix other problems” go to “hardware and devices”. Click on Run the troubleshooter.
- Check your mouse once the process gets completed successfully. Unplug and plug in your mouse again, if the problem persists.
Solution 4: Run an SFC scan
We recommend you to repair your registry by running an SFC. To perform this solution, make sure to follow the steps given below one by one.
- Go to Start and type cmd in the search bar.
- Press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER keys altogether to run Command Prompt as an administrator.
- Type “sfc/scannow” without the quotes and then hit the Enter button.
- Once the scanning process completes, reboot your system. This must resolve the problem for you easily.
