    Pointer disappears

    My pointer disappears for all applications maybe once every two or three days under Windows8 and Office 365. I have only found two ways to get it back - in Word, run a search to enter the navigation pane, or reboot. Others report that opening Metro can retrieve it or updating your computers chipset, but neither worked for me.

    Can you still use the pointer even though it's missing? In other words is it completely gone or is it just invisible and you can still reposition the cursor on a word document? If its the latter it is some overlay, such as you might find with charms and app switcher, malfunction. If completely gone its probably more of a mouse or touchpad settings or drivers issue more specifically than the computer's chipset as a whole.
