Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Found this in a Dell forum.. seems to be a common issue

I would advise that you refresh the drivers for the touchpad by going into the device manager. Please follow the steps mentioned below.

1.    Open the charms bar by moving the mouse to right top corner of the screen and in the search box, type ‘Device Manager’, and then, in the list of results, click ‘Device Manager’.
2.    When the device manager pops up, in the list please check for ‘Mice and other pointing device’.
3.    Please click on the arrow mark beside ‘Mice and other pointing device’.
4.    Right click on the touch pad device(Cypress) and select Uninstall.
5.    Restart the computer and check for issue resolution.

    Have you updated the OS recently? If yes, you can try this, press Function key + F3 or Function key + F5 or Function key + F9 or F11 and then check if the mouse cursor brings back. Or you can rollback the mouse driver to fix this issue.

    If possible & if there is another mouse (for testing purpose), you can change the mouse and check if that helps.
