A circle with a line going through it takes the place of my cursor on my computer?


Firstly, go to

Control Panel
Find Mouse
Click Pointers along the top

Ensure that your default pointer is the normal mouse, like so:


12_23_2012_5_08_10_am.jpg

If not, press "Use Default" and it should reset the mouse pointer to normal.

If it looks like the mouse pointer is supposed to be normal in this screen, let me know and we'll see if there's something else wrong.

The mouse


Hello there.

I recommend doing the following:

1) Shut down the computer (you can hold down the power button on the front of the computer base unit or laptop power button for a few seconds instead of using the mouse)
2) Unplug the mouse base station.
3) Plug the mouse base station in again
4) Turn on the computer and let it start up as normal.
5) Watch for any system messages appearing, like found new hardware.

These steps will verify that there is not a problem with the mouse's base station plugged into the computer. Another thing to check is if the mouse requires batteries, this is often overlooked.

If after doing this there is still no pointer registered, i would suggest trying the mouse in another computer, and if possible trying a different mouse on the same computer.

If the mouse works on another computer then it could be a software problem, which we can help you with.

If the mouse doesn't work on another computer, but a different mouse works fine on the same computer, then im afraid your mouse has to be replaced.

Please post back after trying the above steps and let us know. Telling us which mouse you have exactly will futher help.
Hope this helps.

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.

Step 1


1. Open Mouse by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware, and then clicking Mouse.
2. Click the Pointer Options tab, and then do any of the following:

To change the speed at which the mouse pointer moves, move the Select a pointer speed slider towards Slow or Fast.
• To make the pointer work more accurately when you're moving the mouse slowly, select the Enhance pointer precision check box.
To speed the process of selecting a choice when a dialog box appears, select the automatically move pointer to the default button in a dialog box check box.
To make the pointer easier to find when you move it, select the Display pointer trails check box, and then move the slider towards Short or Long to decrease or increase the length of the pointer trail.
To ensure that the pointer doesn't block your view of the text you're typing, select the Hide pointer while typing check box.
To find a misplaced pointer by pressing the CTRL key, select the Show location of pointer when I press the CTRL key check box.

Step 2


If you are using touchpad, try reducing the Touchpad sensitivity and check

1. Click on the "Start" icon in the lower left corner of the screen. Select "Control Panel." Next select "Mouse" under "Hardware and Sound." You can also left-click the touchpad while the cursor is anywhere on the desktop. From that screen, choose "Mouse Pointers."
2. Select the "
Buttons" tab at the top of the dialog box that opens. This shows the type of touchpad device installed on your laptop.
3. Set the touchpad for right or left-handed use from this dialog box. You can adjust the double click speed of your computer as well. When you finish making any changes, click "
Apply."
4. Pick the "
Device Settings" tab from the dialog box now. You can see the touchpad for your Vista machine highlighted on this screen. Select "Settings."
5. Read the information provided in the next dialog box. It gives you options for tapping your
touchpad, using the buttons, scrolling, pointer motion and sensitivity.
6. Make any changes you want from the various topics. When you make a change, click "
Apply." Click "OK" when you finish making all your changes.
7. Do some work on your computer for a while, If the touchpad is still too sensitive, return to the "Mouse" menu and continue to adjust the settings until you get them just the way you want them.


Step 3

If the issue persists try to perform a clean boot and check whether the issue is still persists.

Follow the steps mentioned in the article given below.

Note:Once the troubleshooting is over, reset the computer to start as usual.


Also I would suggest you to keep in touch with mouse manufacturer

Pointer is stuck


Either the computer is not detecting the mouse (was it correctly plugged-in to the computer when you started the computer?) or the mouse's battery is dead, or something else inside the mouse is broken.

Try a different mouse.
Try the mouse in a different computer.

The mouse does not work


Change the batteries. If still a problem, try the mouse on another workstation. If it still doesn't work, it will confirm that the mouse or USB receiver is faulty.
