Yes, it sounds like a loose connector. It could also be a bad cable. If you want to try it yourself, follow this link for a copy of the maintenance manual:

Lg laptop recovery startup


Try to connect an external mouse to see if that works. Also, many laptops have a lock for the touchpad. Normally one of the F keys along the top will have a button that looks like a touch pad / touch pad with an x on it. You may or may not have to press the FN key (usually bottom left on keyboard) while to press the necessary F key. this should unlock your pointer.

Unlock cursor for acer laptop


Your laptop comes with a touch pad that acts as a mouse. Instead of connecting a mouse each time you want to use your laptop, you can use the touch pad that is integrated underneath the keyboard. This comes in handy when you are in a tight spot such as in a classroom or on an airplane. At times, you may need to unlock the laptop touch pad because someone who borrowed your laptop disabled it. It may also be locked due to a slight malfunction that you can easily fix by enabling the touch pad in your computer settings.
Click the Windows "Start" button in the bottom-left corner of your desktop. Scroll up and click "Control Panel." Choose the "Mouse" icon or type "Mouse" in the field in the upper-right corner. Click the "Enter" button and then click the "Mouse" link. Press the "Hardware" tab or the tab to the right of it that specifies the type of touch pad you have. If you are under the "Hardware" tab, highlight the touch pad in the list of devices and click the "Enable" button. If you are under the touch pad tab, click the enable button. Click the "Apply" button and then click the "OK" button. Hope this helps.

How di make my mouse work


usb mouse or mouse bad ?

Look at the type of mouse you have.

To date, there are three types of mice: the USB mouse, the PS/2 mouse and the Bluetooth mouse.


USB mice connect with a USB adapter, which has a rectangular shape. Conversely, the PS/2 mouse uses a PS/2 adapter, which is round.


Finally, there's the Bluetooth mouse, which has no external adapters.

Plug the mouse into your machine.


Now, how you do this will depend on the mouse you're using.

With a USB mouse, simply plug your device into your laptop's USB adapter, which will also be rectangular in shape.


For PS/2 mice, you'll need to plug it into a PS/2 adapter. Plug your mouse into the PS/2 end then plug the other end into your laptop's USB adapter.

And for Bluetooth mice, no plugging is required.

Install the mouse drivers.


If your mouse is not plug-and-play, you're going to need to install its drivers. To do this, insert the CD or diskette that came with your device.

The installation should occur automatically.


Pair your mouse, if using a Bluetooth mouse.

At this stage, non-Bluetooth mice are ready to be used.


However, if you are installing a Bluetooth mouse, you must perform one additional step: pairing it to your machine.


To achieve this, use your laptop's touchpad and right-click on your Windows screen. Select the option "Pair Device." From there, follow the on-screen instructions to sync your mouse with yourcomputer.



Place your mouse onto a mouse pad. Before using your mouse, you need to place it onto a mouse pad.

This should be done for all types of mice, whether they are wireless or trackball.

Otherwise, movement will be difficult



mouse pad


Examine your mouse pad.

Dirt and grime can affect performance and slow down mouse sensitivity, if not shut it down altogether.


Make sure the surface of the track pad is clean and that there is nothing that has managed to get beneath it or around any trackball buttons that could affect the pressing and depressing of the component.


Check to see if your mouse pad has been turned off.

If the Fn (Function) button at the bottom left of the keyboard is pressed in conjunction with some other key on the keyboard it can result in the disabling of the mouse pad.


To enable your mouse pad on a Windows PC go to the Control Menu.

Under the Printers and Other Hardware option, click on Mouse.

Then, click on the tab on the top of the pop-up menu that says Device Settings.

The touch pad for your computer should come up as a selectable option. Click on it and you will see the option to enable your device, then click OK. If this does not work,


Check the manufacturer of your laptop (for example, Toshiba) and then navigate to their official website. Find an area for Software and Drivers, and move on to that area.


Enter your laptop number (check your documentation/manuals and/or the bottom of the computer) and look through the drivers that are presented as a result of this number input.


It could be that your mouse pad simply needs updated drivers. Find the driver that corresponds to your computer and mouse pad (for example, most Acer laptops use a Synaptics touch pad).


Then, click on download.

Once the drivers have downloaded, double click them to ensure they install, restart your laptop, and your mouse pad should be working again.


hope this helps

How to unlock the key pad on a dell latitude D600 laptop


Hi. Please do troubleshooting steps below:

1. Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.

2. Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.

3. Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.

4. Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.

Have a good one!


  • Step 2 Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart.

  • Step 3 Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.
  • Step 4 Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.

    The mouse seems to be frozen, when you start the laptop up it is no longer possible to move the mouse. I have tried left click, drag and right click but nothing seems to work, including contal alt del.


    Your touchpad may have stopped working either from it is damaged or somehow the driver/software was diabled or removed. You could try re-booting in safemode and see if the mouse can move to verify the touchpad is working. Also try using a usb mouse to see if you can move the indicator with that so you can try to re-install the drivers/software.

    My mouse pad does not work nor does USB cable


    Has the mouse lock been applied.
    Press and hold the "FN" key and then press "F9" this should unlock the mouse and touch pad.
    Failing that try updating the drivers for both using the device manager as I have found that recent updates have disabled my touch pad and I have rolled back the drivers to the previous ones.

    Some times the screen starts getting lines through it making it unable to view. also the left right up and down buttons no longer work.


    likely either a bad lcd or lcd cable. sometimes it can be a video chip issue as well. If you press down on the palm rest to the left of the mouse pad and the lines go away then it is the motherboard. More likely though that you have a bad lcd

    Lenovo laptop touch pad or mouse


    1. Download the latest touch-pad drivers from Lenovo's website.
    2. If you have the drivers and utility installed, you should have an icon on the bottom right of the taskbar (may need to hit the arrow to expand.) If you open up that utility there should be an option for "Tapping" which is where tapping the mouse bad will mimic a mouse click. Try disabling that.
    3. Make sure you aren't bumping the pad with your wrist when you are typing on the keyboard.
