My mouse pointer is stuck on my log in screen

I tried the Dell wireless mouse on another computer and it works fine. I also tried plugging the base sensor into the different USB ports but that made no difference.

If it is a usb mouse you could try using a usb to ps/2 converter some machines will not support usb mice and keyboards.

I cannot find the wireless base to my wireless mouse and keyboard kr0401. Can I get another wireless base?


You can buy a wireless mouse and plug the dongle or base into a usb port . Most are Plug & Play so as soon as your pc starts up it should find the program on the wireless base unit and identify it for use . Try ebay.

I bought secondhand PC with o/s still on it, however the mouse pointer is still on the screen, got a new mouse but its not working, puzzled!


The computer should recognize the mouse and install it automatically if it is not you might have to go into add new devices. Use the tab and arrow keys to navigate if it is connected to the internet you might be able to down load and install a driver .if the mouse came with a driver disk even better.to navigate click the tab key and watch what gets highlighted when the start button is highlighted click enter then usr the up down arrow keys to go to
control panel then use tab to navigate to add new device manager you should be able to get windows to search for the device. If this doesnt work you may have to shut the computer down and go into bios and check that usb is enabled you can use the key board to do this also .Depending on what type of computer you might have to press the delete key on start up or somtimes the f2 or f 12 key some times it tells you on the bottom of the screen when it it booting up. which key to press. I hope this helps. If you aren't sure of these steps then let me know if you need more help.

I have a Dell 2350 PC and none of the usb or other ports work except the monitor


Make sure the batteries are inserted correctly and have charge if applicable
usually located on the underside of the mouse there might be small plastic sticker with a phillips head screw under it rub your fingernail over the top to see if it has a screw
or make sure the usb device is properly inserted for wireless
the usb or Ps2 connection are secure with a dust free connection

or it might be the usb for wireless mouse or lead connecting to the usb port or even a faulty mouse
if this does not fix the problem
Restart you computer tap the f8 key repeatedly to enter safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you an attempt to repair your computer
If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.
Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only
Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode
Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
select safe mode
click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x
right click you will need to update the driver
Click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver rollback driver or uninstall also
I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop
then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 arrows >> then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7
in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar
Click start control panel keyboard hardware make sure you have the right keyboard selected
or you might have uninstall the keyboard then restart your computer then reinstall it and its drivers
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to keyboard you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click update driver

Mouse does not work, batteries are ok


LOL, just when you need it to work those wireless mouse and keyboards always fail you. I never understood the concept of why have a wireless mouse or keyboard because you have to be sitting right there at the computer to use them. Therefore why not use a dependable wired device?

Maybe the mouse needs replacing or somewhere in the mouse properties you have the pointer locked.

I have a Medion wireless mouse and the mouse pointer keeps freezing intermittently. The operating system is windows vista home premium.


Make sure the mouse batteries are fully charged.

Also make sure the mouse is not too far away from the base / cradle and there is nothing blocking the sensor on the front of the mouse cradle.

Make sure all the cables are fully inserted. Check both ends of the power adapter plug going into the back of the mouse cradle and the plugs leading to the back of the computer.

Try cleaning the little red LED light under the mouse with a QTip to remove any dust.

Finally try using a different mouse pad. Some work better than others with certain brands of wireless mice.

Also make sure there is not another wireless mouse being used in close proximity. The two can often interfere with each other.

Good luck and please comment back and RATE if this was helpful.

Sounds like a windows error though, some how the installation may have been corrupted. I suggest performing a virus scan on a test PC. An alternative is to take it in to a computer technician.
