Re: Laptop mouse not working

Uninstall the mouse sofware again and remove the mouse reciever. re install driver and re connect reciever, but in a different usb port if possible, if still not recognised it maybe that the mouse needs pairing to the reciever, so refer to your manual for help on that.

Mouse pad stalls and i see a little red light on the mouse pad....i have a compaq laptop but not sure what do i disable thi feature so i dont have to use a physical mouse

The little red light is likely from the red LED underneath your optical mouse. If the mouse cursor/pointer on the screen is jerky, it may mean the mouse pad is dirty and/or if the mouse is wireless, its battery is low and should be replaced. Most laptops have a touchpad as part of the keyboard. If you want to use that instead of a physical mouse, just put the physical mouse away and use the touchpad. Both should be active unless the touchpad was disabled. If the touchpad is disabled, you can re-enable it by clicking on control panel > mouse > device settings tab > enable button.

Laptop mouse stopped workig ??

In your case it maybe that the mouse is disabled, this is done with a function key, FN and one of the F1- F12 keys.

make sure the mouse is not disabled.

if this doesn't solve the issue.
it may possibly be:
  1. Software issue.
  2. cut cable.
  3. broken touchpad.
  4. issue between the touchpad and motherboard.
  5. faulty motherboard..
