I bought secondhand PC with o/s still on it, however the mouse pointer is still on the screen, got a new mouse but its not working, puzzled!


The computer should recognize the mouse and install it automatically if it is not you might have to go into add new devices. Use the tab and arrow keys to navigate if it is connected to the internet you might be able to down load and install a driver .if the mouse came with a driver disk even better.to navigate click the tab key and watch what gets highlighted when the start button is highlighted click enter then usr the up down arrow keys to go to
control panel then use tab to navigate to add new device manager you should be able to get windows to search for the device. If this doesnt work you may have to shut the computer down and go into bios and check that usb is enabled you can use the key board to do this also .Depending on what type of computer you might have to press the delete key on start up or somtimes the f2 or f 12 key some times it tells you on the bottom of the screen when it it booting up. which key to press. I hope this helps. If you aren't sure of these steps then let me know if you need more help.

Mouse pointer jumps when moving it on screen.


If you are not using a mouse pad, try that. Using the mouse on reflective or glass surfaces. Try another mouse to see if it has the same issues. Check your mouse settings in control panel to make sure everything seems ok. Update mouse drivers. Finally, you can try to uninstall / reinstall the mouse.

The mouse that came with it was not used until yesterday and it sometimes lights up but even when it does, it does not work the pointer.


Hello,

If the mouse pointer works with a different mouse, then the problem is with the mouse that you are using now. You will need to get a new one if that's the case.

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty


if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free


restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard


try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.

dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts

if by now you gan get a screen
you might have to uninstall your keyboard restart your computer then reinstall it


make sure the lead connection is secure and dust free (if applicable)

make sure the usb device is inserted correctly into the Ps2 or usb port (if applicable)

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to keyboards also mouse you might see a yellow exclamation or question mark ! ? or red x you will need to update driver right click to update driver

if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
this will apply to your mouse
you might have to uninstall the mouse and its drivers then restart your computer then reinstall the mouse and its drivers

click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver

click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have the options update driver rollback driver or uninstall in xp

in windows 7 click start control panel hardware and sound mouse you will see the same tabs and options as with xp


hope this helps

Use the F8 key while booting up and boot into safe mode. Disable all start up apps using the msconfig app. Also, while in safe mode, try to run a virus scan.
By chance you didn't have any pop ups before this problem that told you that your system was infected and it offered to remove the for you? If you did... You're going to have a real headache, but you can remove the virus yourself. It just takes a little time.

I have a brand new acer pc and the mouse keeps jumping all over the place


The mouse settings may be set to fast. Goto Start>Control Panel. Find the Mouse and check the settings in the tab Pointer Options. Set it to a slower speed to see if that helps.

The mouse light is on but there is no pointer iv tryed a diffrent mouse still no pointer


Is it a usb mouse?

1) USB legacy may be disabled in the bios, enter bios menu (usualy by pressing DEL or F1 or F2 on computer start) and look for the words USB and see if it disabled, if it is, change to enable and exit with save.

2) the USB socket port may be damaged, change port.

3) the power supply on your computer may be to small or you have a lot of usb peripherials connected.

4) try to use a usb to ps/2 converter
