A few things, what windows do you have?
Have you installed anything new before this happened?
Is your battery in the computer or on outside?

Right before this happened, I installed Wireshark and some file comparison software. Another thing I did almost immediately before the cursor disappeared was boot into the bios. I was just wanting to verify that the instructions I found online for getting into the bios were correct because I wanted to know that I had the option of changing boot priorities. I didn't think I actually changed anything in the bios but it was right after this that my cursor disappeared.
The battery is not accessible from the outside. It is on the inside.
Oh! I almost forgot. I'm not sure which program I installed came bundled with Avast but, it did get installed too. I uninstalled it and went back to Windows Defender.

Further, I am starting to wonder if I might b dealing with a hardware issue rather than a Windows 10 issue.
There are two blue lights on the front of the case. If the laptop is fully charged, I can hit the power button and nothing happens whether it is plugged in or not. If the battery is fully drained and it is plugged up, then when I hit the power button, Windows boots as far as the screen where they usually ask if u like the picture on the screen. But, the question is not present and neither is the password box. Even if I click the mouse buttons, the password box will not show up as it used to when I clicked the mouse. There also is no cursor on this screen. Shortly after Windows boots this far, the screen turns black.
This problem started shortly after I booted into the bios to see whether it would give me a boot priority menu. When I went to leave the bios, a question came up asking me whether or not I wanted to save changes. I didn't think I made any changes but, I selected "no" thinking that if I had accidentally made any changes, they would b erased.

Are you using a USB mouse or the notebooks touchpad, if the touchpad;
Have you checked in the BIOS to make sure that the touchpad has not been disabled.
