Even though the mouse is plugged into the CPU, the curser isn't moving on the screen. The mouse was removed from an old desktop a couple of years ago to be used on another desktop and was working fine...


First of all what kind of mouse is it? USB (metal retangle) or PS/2 (round plug with small pins)
USB is plug and play (meaning you can plug it in anytime even with the computer on and it should start working)
PS/2 The computer needs to be off before you plug it in.
Also some computers you will need to enter BIOS and enable legacy support for PS/2 mice/keyboards
To enter BIOS, while the computer is first booting up press the key it asks for to enter setup/settings, generally it is F10, F11 or del. Look for legacy support and make sure it is enabled. Save and Exit BIOS.
Let me know if you need further assistance

Mouse quit working on my Lap Top it is a Aspire


First of all check whether the touch pad is lock (Fn+F7(?)). If you use an external mouse/ usb mouse, check usb cable connection, as long as you didn't drop it on the floor it should be ok. If the built in touch pad doesn't work, could be caused by ribbon cable connectivity that has dirt or moist. To fix it need to open the upper case

Touch pad mouse will not move


There will be a button above the touch pad or using function key to disable it. try both and find out which is the prob. Some drivers may not installed properly. Run the touchpad driver in administrator mode and if you are having the xp driver set to xp sp3 compatible mode.

Emachines laptop e525 mouse pad not working at all so cannot use everything else starting up as normal


Look at the middle cover (above the keyboard). there are two buttons that touch the power switch, the one to the left enables/disables the touchpad. If it shows an orange light it is disabled. Just press it, and be careful not to hit it when turning unit on.

Mouse pad not working


A mouse pad is a thing you put your mouse on....

now what you are talking about is your touchpad.

Check these first:

  • some laptops have a switch that turns off the touch pad (usually a button right on the topside of the touchpad)
  • did you reboot completely? full shutdown, then power on?
  • goto the device manager (with a usb mouse of course) and find the touchpad... delete the device... then reboot again it should try and find the touchpad and ask for the driver, point it to the directory that you have the driver located.
good luck!

Frozen mouse with a touch pad laptop computer


Check your drivers. Go into the device manager (start>control panel>system>hardware>device manager>human interface device) . If it shows a big yellow question mark, than it is a driver problem.

I would suggest that you either install or download the latest drivers for the mouse, and you can do this even without checking for a hardware conflict as stated above.

You can also access the control panel and trouble shoot your mouse through the mouse icon.

Even sometimes this may not work.....

I had an IBM brand optical mouse that continually plague me with problems until I gave it away with a computer that I built. The person who has it is still have occasionally issues with the mouse even with the proper drivers installed. I believe that it is a connection issue because sometimes the mouse will start working when you jiggle the male USB connection.

Touchpad problem on VAIO laptop


Have you tried a regular mouse another (USB) input? You may be able to carefully disassemble the pad and clean with a electronic cleaner fluid. Use a light touch with the membrane. If the mouse behaves the same, look at you system and uninstall / reinstall the driver. The oils on your fingers can gum up the surface and make it less sensitive to the electrostatic properties that make a touch pad operate.
