Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Mouse doesn't alays work.

I have an HP desktop with windows XP. Whenever I start my computer the cursor appears on the middle of the screen but will not move. It is frozen in place. Then I have top shutdown without benefit of controls and on the second start up the cursor will move and respond.
Also, I have a very simple solitaire game that I play. At times during play the cursor will freeze momentarily and then recovers.
What do you suggest I do to remedy these problem?

Check that batteries are charged and installed properly.--make sure driver disc is installed if applicable- check instructions as some wireless suites need you to push a small connect button to initialise them . Also try shifting the usb conector into another USB port if it is notm getting reconised.

My first check would be video drivers if this is a newly built computer. If it is a computer that has been running a while and the problem suddenly appeared I would reseat the RAM and attempt to boot into safe mode, suspecting a virus infection.

PC Desktop stops responding


Try using your System Restore Point. Click Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Sytem. On the Left Corner, you can see a System Resore, Click it. Now choose the option Restore my computer on an earlier time then Click Next. You can see a calendar, choose a date where you know when your computer works well. Click Next until it reboots your computer.
