Becod,

is this an external mouse or a mouse pad/nipple in the laptop.

If the former have you tryed using a different mouse? I have had similar problems with optical mice in the past.

How does a touchpad work on laptops


a touchpad works off the static electrical charge that resides all living tissue as far as I know. if you were to statically charge that piece of metal you are referring to, it would work. as far as why the mouse pointer doesn't jump when you touch a specific spot on the touch pad is because people, in general, don't want it to so the software that controls it has been designed not to.

Mouse arrow shows but won't move with touch pad or button


Hi Wayne ,

If it fell off the edge of your bed last night it is likely that you have damaged the mouse track pad in some way.

you might have to order a new one off of ebay and have someone fit it for you !!

Or it might be as simple as the ribbon cable in the track pad has come loose and will need to be refitted.

can you see the movement of the track pad in the right hand bottom corner of the screen when you move the mouse with the track pad and by using an external USB mouse to get to the desktop?

How do I disabled the touch pad and only use an external mouse and the keyboard on the lap top?


You do not have to actually disable the touch pad on this laptop to use an "external" mouse. Just plug in your mouse and it will install the drivers if needed and viola, your good to go. If you insist on disabling your touch pad however, you can do that by double tapping the top left hand corner, when you do this correctly, a little orange light will show and the screen will show a notification the the touch pad is disabled. To enable the pad back on, just repeat the same step you used to disable, and the on screen notification will indicate the touch pad is enabled!

My mouse is frozen on my hp dm4 and the orange light in the left hand corner is not on, nor will it turn on when double tapped


First thought is look at the top of the touch pad, there is a button. Push this button once and see if the mouse works. HP put this button on to deactivate the mouse if needed.

If this does not work, plug in an external mouse and see if it works, if not do a hard boot on the computer and try the mouse again.

While I'm typing, the cursor moves to another place in the sentence or on the screen. This is a huge problem, because when I'm tying, the cursor goes back anywhere it wants to in the sentence, which mixes...


Try an external mouse. I have seen this happen many times, and it is usually the users hand brushing the integrated laptop mouse pad.
If the external mouse works and the problem is not there, then try again with the internal pad, and watch to see if your hands or fingers brush against it.

If it still happens even with the external mouse and you are sure you are not touching the pad accidentally, then you may want to contact manufacturer of computer, check for updated USB drivers as well.

Your internal mouse runs off USB, and there is a possibility there may be a glitch there that could be resolved with an update.

Mouse pointer drfts to the right side of the screen. I have a touch pad and a mouse button on the keyboard. Even when I connected my usb mouse that pointer drifts as well. I'm not able to control the mouse...


see if your touchpad settings have a setting that controls the sensitivity on the area around the touchpad where you rest your hands on the laptop. I forget what it's called, but most laptops have a setting to control that, so when you rest your hands on the laptop it doesn't affect mouse movement. When you rest your hands, if the sesitivity is too high, the mouse pointer will move when you place your hands to rest on that area.

Mouse pad


you would be better off using an optical mouse that has a usb or ps2 connector ( depending on what your laptop supports ) usb would be better though less chance of pins bending as there are none on a usb connection ( at least not like a ps2 connector )

Also download the latest drivers for the touchpad and make sure that the scrolling options for or on the touchpad are not configured too thickly which will be in the touch pad settings.

Moving cursor.


well there is a few things that could possibly be happening. if it is a touch pad or a wireless mouse something like a cell phone sitting close enough to them could be causing some interference. the second one is that you could possibly have the mouse keys turned on where you can control the mouse with the keyboard.

Mouse cursor moving by itself


i have latitude c610 and same problem happens with me too. i think that happens when i finish my brakfat and without cleaning my hands start using the touch pad. what happens according to me is that small particles of food(eg bread/dust particles) stuck in the corners or the body wall where the touch pad ends and keeps pressing the touchpad, thus causing the mouse to move to one direction. when i clean the corners and sides of the touchpad, it starts working ok !!

thanks
