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.

I have seen the same problem with a Dell computer that was caused by the driver for the touch pad. Suggest you go to the vendor web site and see if they have a new driver. If you have the latest go to an older driver, sometimes a new driver may have a bug.

Not sure about the blue, but it sounds like the black screen problem others are having all over then net. Here was my two cents on it so far....

There is a very good chance if you are using a external mouse instead of the touch pad, that is what is causing it. Problem is, I am still looking into why and do not know of a fix yet.

I have the very same laptop and mine worked just fine with a external mouse up until I formated it. Now just like the many other owners, my mouse freezes and and then seconds later the screen goes black. It doesn't however when the external mouse in not pluged in.

I would have to assume this is due to something not being installed right during the windows installation. As I said, mine worked fine until the format. Until I find out what is causing this error to happen, my best advise is not to use a mouse, just use the touch pad.

It's kind of a pain lol, I had gotten so use to the mouse. I kept reaching for it even after I unplugged it. I had to take it off my desk so I would use the touch pad lol.

My laptop computer is okey except that the touch command for the cursor is not responding, if i use a mouse thru the usb port then its alright..why does the touch command for the cursor not responding?


Touch pads are not very reliable. I have seen a lot fail.
A computer repair person will need to replace it for you.
My advice is to stick with a USB mouse. Or if it is under warranty, take advantage of that warranty.
Best of luck.

Laptop goes into permanent sleep mode, etc


If you can restart it and it starts up fine, then I would go into the power settings and disable sleep mode. Every computer is different on how to wake a sleeping computer, so you could read through your manuals and find out for yours, but I just disable sleep mode on all computers so i dont have to hassle with it.

Did it work before? What was changed since? If it did, does a mouse work? If so, goto system and uninstall the pad, reconnect the pad and reboot. Driver may have been corrupted.
