Cursor frozen in the middle of the screen

As above

    The cursor is frozen n the middle of the screen. The hour glass appears when things are loading but it won't move. I attached the mouse to a laptop to see if it was broken but it is still working but on the desktop, (with and without the mouse attached) the cursor just sits there. I can use the keyboard to navigate the computer but I just can't figure out why the cursor is frozen.

There may be some problem in the input devices it might not get initiated at the booting time of the system ..

you can find out this in a simple way ..
if your system boots up with a beep means the input devices might not be booted properly (if you have not turned the beep start up on in bios means then follow this )

if you have given beep start up means disable it by going to the bios setup ... you can go to bios setup by pressing f2 (in some pc s delete key )

you can change that option and observe it ..

check whether the mouse is connected properly to the port or not .. once you reconnect it that s better ..

there may be some problem exist in operating system may be it attacked with some virus,spyware,malware scan your system completely once, it is better you reinstall the operating system once ...

if you are using the wireless mouse it will not work until you log into windows .

and finally check whether the drivers of mouse are installed or not .. if not install it ..

if you still persist the problem then there may be some problem in the bios .. upgrading the bios will solve your problem ..

if you want to upgrade give me your motherboard model i will give you the link for it ...

any queries get me back

Frozen touchpad

I followed the advice of pressing the FN and F7 keys at the same time. It didn't work when the program was fully loaded, but I rebooted and tried again during the rebooting and it worked. I had the frozen cursor on the Travel Mate (Acer) also.
