My friend just bought his daughter a computer with Windows 8 on it. And her mouse pointer won't show up on the Windows 8 screen. I don't know the specifics yet, he's bring the computer to me tomorrow so I'm guessing this is a laptop. Can any of you guys help me guess what this problem is because they are trusting that I know enough to help fix this. Hopefully someone can help make me look good in helping my friend.

maybe its a touchscreen?
really hard to help till you get a hold of it and can explain the problem in more detail
The touchscreen was accidentally disabled. Go to settings, control panel, hardware and sound, mouse properties, then select device settings. Click on "enable"- that should do it!
