Question about Computers & Internet

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

The right side of my touch pad control button has stopped working


Did you check the settings for the left and right buttons under the mouse properties. Normally the left should be set on Click and the right should be set on Shortcut. If it's set to NONE then it will be inoperable. Better yet you can click the Default tab for buttons. Otherwise, it sounds like your touch pad needs to be replaced. The immediate remedy to this is to just go purchase a USB mouse and voila, you'll have the ability to left and right click.

My cursor jumps suddenly from one place to another, it's very annoying while typing emails, word documents, everywhere... pls help


The usual reason this happens in laptops is that as you're typing, you hit the touchpad with the heel of your hand and the cursor moves. I've done it myself. What I suggest is turning off the touchpad and using an external mouse if you do a lot of typing. This eliminates the accidental contact, and (to me, at least) a real mouse is more comfortable for frequent use. Most computers have a switch that turns the touchpad on or off, or you can disable it through the Windows Control Panel or touchpad utility program.

When i'm typing, the cursor moves and i'm suddenly typing in the wrong place. i can't find any place in the control panel where i can adjust the touchpad settings.


this happens often .. try to go to Website of Manufacturer and down load latest driver for the touchpad then watch where it downloads to, click on the installl file this will have you reboot after install \
fixed a few like this OR some have disabled touchpad added a new infra red mouse and that stopped the creepy mouse curser syndrome :)

My cursor jumps back to the beginning when i'm trying to type. i'm constantly having to backspace and correct and reset my cursor. any suggestions?


Disable your touchpad if you consistently have this problem.

When you are typing something, and you suddenly touch the touchpad (tapping this touchpad moves the cursor) then your cursor will suddenly change position which then mess up your typing.

If you don'r have an external mouse connected, better be careful not to touch the touchpad. If you have an external mouse, better disable this touchpad.

Cursor stuck in the middle of screen vista operating system


What are you using? a laptop or a PC?

If you are using a PC then check that the mouse is connected properly to the slot. Also check the ball inside the mouse, it happens sometimes when its dirty, clean the ball inside the mouse and also inside the mouse(use a small cloth).

If you mouse is wireless then check the battery in your mouse. It might run out of charge. Also check the button which is used to turn on the mouse. It might be jammed.

If its a touchpad there is no solution that I can think of other than buying a mouse.

Cursor(pointer) cannot be moved by using touchpad but possibe wit


Hi,

This happens to me also. Check whether the touchpad is enabled (laptops do have an option of enabling / disabling the touchpad). Secondly, you can try reinstalling the touchpad driver. Uninstall and then re-install the driver. Re-boot the system. Try using the touchpad.

Hope this helps., if so, rate me.. thanks - billa

Jumping cursor when typing


Since you have a logitech mouse, lets just disable the touchpad. You should be able to disable the touchpad via one of these methods:
  1. Look on the top row of keys. You should have one that looks like a little mouse. If you do, hold down the "fn" key in the bottom, and press the key with the mouse on it. That *should* disable the touchpad.
  2. Go to the control panel, and find the keyboard and mouse settings. Digging through the menus, you should find a touchpad. You can disable it through there.
