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 cursor

This happened to me once. and it was so frustrating.
Here's how I fixed mine (don't forget to set a restore point in case something goes wrong?): using your keyboards arrow keys, tab keys, hot keys, etc. to navigate your system.

REBOOT in SAFE MODE.Press F8 when it boots.
-- Go to START > SETTTINGS > CONTROL PANEL and open your SYSTEM PROPERTIES. Select the HARDWARE tab and open your DEVICE MANAGER scroll down to MICE AND OTHER POINTING DEVICES and double click on your listed/installed device to open up a PROPERTIES WINDOW on this device.
Select DRIVER tab. From here you can try several things: You may need to update your drivers, and, at least in XP you can roll back to your previous setting if updates don't help, or, heaven forbid, make matters worse.
OR you can do what finally worked for me. I had to uninstall my mouse drivers then reinstall them.

Try also to visit lenovo (they have the support for your pc) for the latest driver updates:

I hope it works for you, good luck

Frozen keyboard & mouse on Acer Notebook

You may have a motherboard failure problem. I would ask you to check the drivers and update them but will be hard to do if you can't get past load screen. You best bet may to get a copy of system recovery and boot pc with the disk installed. Wipe computer completely clean and reinstall windows.
