Solved Why are lights flashing and mouse hesitating?

January 15, 2018 at 00:40:56
Specs: Windows 10, Intel i3, 8gb
I have an Acer Aspire 5741g laptop with 8gb memory running Windows 10.

For the last few days I've noticed that the blue light in the on/off switch is regularly and constantly flashing along with the orange battery light. I have also noticed that the mouse pointer on the screen lags behind my movements on the touchpad. Can anyone please offer an explanation for this? Is it a warning of something serious? Is it a coincidence that around the same time as this started I ran the requested updates for Windows 10? I have rebooted but this made no difference.

Thanks in advance.

What make/model is the mouse; and how old?

If you use a wired mouse does that behave ok?

If you remove the battery and run on mains adapter only - does the situation persist as described re' flashing lights; and equally the mouse behaviour?

Incidentally are the batteries in the rodent OK?
