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.

Hi. the touchpad on my Dell Latitude D620 has somehow been disabled or jus quit working..idk which. so am trying to install a ge wireless optical mouse HO97985......WK2004 with usb do i get...

If it was disabled try this. push the FN or function key, found near the lower left of the keyboard. Hold that down and then push the F10 or F12 key. Should be F10 on that model. That should turn it back on. The pads are pretty reliable and I've actually only ever seen one die in about 15 years.

If you are stuck installing then plug the mouse in and boot. It should actually find the mouse as new software and install a default driver. You may have to reboot it once after before it works. To work without a mouse you use the tab and spacebar. Tab mose from one box to another and space acts like a mouse click. Alt tab moves from one program to another. And to close use alt -F4 and to shut down use alt-f4. You shouldn;t need to do that if you boot with the mouse in the usb so it finds it.

My laptop is only a few months old, and the touchpad randomly stopped working....what can i do?

If you have already tried another mouse and works fine in Windows OS then the problem gets narrowed down to the touchpad being faulty and would have to replace it but don't discard the touchpad could be accidently disabled in the control panel of the mouse properties. Dell laptops usually have a driver chipset and driver for the mouse touchpad specifically which you can get on

try reinstalling before getting new touchpad part for your laptop. Dell has spareparts where you can buy a refurb one and install yourself. Instructions on how to take apart your laptop is on the same site.

Wireless Mouse on a laptop with built inTouchpad on the keyboard

No need to disable the touchpad they should both work at the same time. Have you tried both the mice on another PC?. The first mouse should have the correct software already installed but you will most probably need to install software for the microsoft mouse. I hope you have tried resetting by hitting the button on the receiver then while its flashing the button on bottom of the mouse? If all this fails do have any other USB devices you can test on laptop?......good luck

PS I hope its not the batteries

Dynex wireless mouse DX-PWLMSE won't work

The mouse should be Plug and Play. Did you install the drivers before plugging the mouse's receiver in? The PC has to have the drivers first in order to take advantage of the Plug and Play capability. If you plugged the mouse's receiver in before installing the drivers, unplug the mouse receiver, uninstall the driver, reboot your PC, reinstall the driver, then plug the receiver in and you should be fine.

Otherwise, press the Connect button on the receiver first, and then the Connect button on the mouse, and that should establish the connection. You don't need to disable your touch pad in order to use the mouse.

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..
