Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Logitech Medialife mouse will suddenly stop in its ability to move the cursor; and when it happens, the Touchpad also will become inoperable. Which leaves me with only one option: shut down my PC and reboot.

    (I forgot to mention.... the unit has always worked flawlessly, I have
    tried other USB ports to no avail, and BTW this is a somewhat expensive
    ($45) wireless mouse.)

    Is there some way I could've *edited* my comment after writing it? If
    there is no such feature, I think you need one.

    Thanks for your answer. I'm not sure I'm ready to try a Sys Restore at this point,
    as I fear it may affect some of my newer programs.

    Still, it is an excellent idea. I will try to keep track of "when" the mouse loses
    its connection with the cursor, and see what may be learned from that.

    One thing I've noticed: if I accidentally touch or bump the USB wireless
    connector module, that nearly always causes the problem Sometimes I can
    restore it to normal by removing and re-inserting the module, but sometimes I
    can't, and have to completely re-boot the PC. (Strangest part is that when the
    mouse loses connectivity with the cursor, I also find the same problem has
    occurred with the Touchpad. Most mysterious. Of course, without a cursor I
    can move around, the only thing left is to reboot.) The problem seems to
    occur no matter which of my 3 USB ports I connect to.

    It cannot be a battery problem, by the way, since I am using a wall outlet.
    And I have wondered if perhaps the driver may have somehow become
    corrupted, but then this wouldn't explain the Touchpad also going out --
    would it? (I do still have the mouse's software and could re-install the
    driver if need be.)

    Thanks again for your help,

    Poiiop

Can you notice if the mouse stops when using a certain program or while you've been on the pc for a length of time. When hardware stops it could be conflicts with other programs, a driver issue, battery. If your mouse worked without problems not long ago I'd first try a system restore back to the time when it worked. To do a restore click on programs, accessories, system tools and the system restore. Pick a day on the calendar before when the mouse was working and let the pc restore back to that time. It will restart then see if it works for you.
Thanks,
Henry

Hi,
I believe I can help in what you are experiencing with your jumping cursor concern. you mentioned that you downloaded a driver, try downloading touch freeze, google it it will give you links where to download it and it is free, this should fix your jumping cursor issue

any of the links will lead you to the downloads page for the application.
once downloaded this is what you should see on your task bar, see image below. an icon of a touchpad with a check mark on it.

The cursor is frozen. Neither the touchpad or the mouse will make it move.


You can try enabling MouseKeys just to test. Use Left ALT+LEFT+SHIFT+NumLock to enable it then you can use the number pad to move the pointer.

If this works, you may need to try a new mouse and/or touchpad driver or try with a known-good mouse.

Hope this helps!

Mouse Sensitivity Issue


If your laptop is Vista, this page should have a download for a Vista touchpad driver:

http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/lenovo/drivers/2412/50.html

If it's an XP laptop, try this link:

http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/lenovo/drivers/2412/313.html

If one of them works, let me know which one and rate appropriately. If neither of them do, we'll try something else.

Thanks.

I have an HP Pavilion dv5224 laptop. pe I find that when I ty at a clip, things like what just happened (my cursor somehow jumps to another place in the para--from ty to 1st line pe). This happens pretty...


Does your laptop have touchpad that acts as a mouse if you don't have a mouse plugged in (it's usually directly below the spacebar)? If any part of your hand accidentally brushes that sensitive rectangular area, it will cause the mouse cursor to jump around.

There is usually a button you can push at the top of the rectangular touchpad to turn it off while you're typing. On my HP laptop it has a blue light, and when I push the button it turns red.

Suddenly the cursor moves back to a previous line and continues typing making a joke of what I'pingm typing (see it just did it)


make sure the mouse cursor is further down the page from where you are typing. If your text continues over the arrow of the cursor and any static electricity or touch is detected by the glide pad of a laptop or S.E. from a mouse it will move the text cursor to where the mouse cursor is.

This is a continual problem with sensitive computers.

sorry there is no permanent "FIX"

I have lost the ability to scroll using the right vertical edge of the touch pad. Otherwise the pad works fine but it is annoying not being able to scroll any more without moving the cursor to the 'scroll...


The option to enable or disable the scrolling option for the notebook touchpad is generally available by going to the Control Panel, then selecting Mouse. Within that area, go to Device Settings, select the touchpad from the list of available devices, then click Settings. There should be an option for "virtual scrolling" - click on it, and you should be given the options to turn on or off both horizontal and vertical scrolling for the touchpad control.

I have an aspire 5315 can somebody tell me why the curser keeps sticking or jumping


Hi lesandlen,

Well, there are a lot of factors that could be involved with your cursor acting up. For starters, could you answer if it is a trackball, optical, or laser mouse? What kind of surface are you using it on? And did it come with a driver CD that you have installed?

Generally, your cursor will move erratically when the sensor that detects movement of the mouse is fed mis-information. If it's a trackball, this can happen when foreign material is caught along the inside wheel sensors besides the trackball. On an optical mouse, it can be similar foreign material interfering with the digital camera's ability to take pictures of your mouse surface. Similar for a laser, but they are much more precise.

Could you provide us with more information? Thanks!

Cursor failure


Solution one:

it may be that your mouse is failing and you may need to to buy another, logitech,microsoft etc are very good mouse brands but cost around 30 - 80$. laser and wireless mouses work very well with desktop pc's. but however, if you do buy a new mouse and it does the same thing.


Solution two:

go to you mouse settings and disable "hide cursor while typing" this is a common mistake for mouse settings.

hope this helps you.
