Hi, if everything is still original with no add-ons or upgrades, then it is most likely that one of your memory is failing. Your computer has a built-in video card that shares memory system. Then replacing the memory should do the trick. However, I must caution you that your particular brand/model has certain limitations to the type/size/speed of memory. You should probably consult a qualified service personnel/professional since this involves opening the case. Should you want to do this yourself, a step by step instruction is available at Hope this be of some help. Good luck.

Clicking "Watch on YouTube" on

Consider clicking on the title of the video that shows on the top left of the YouTube screen while moving the mouse over the video image. This text should be in white and become underlined when mouse is over it.

Nelia, JUst fixed one with the same problem. The lid switch is faulty - I will take a technician about 20 mins to disconnect the switch and leave it disconnected.

My Logitech Medialife mouse will suddenly stop in its ability to move the cursor; and when it happens, the Touchpad also will become inoperable. Which leaves me with only one option: shut down my PC...

Can you notice if the mouse stops when using a certain program or while you've been on the pc for a length of time. When hardware stops it could be conflicts with other programs, a driver issue, battery. If your mouse worked without problems not long ago I'd first try a system restore back to the time when it worked. To do a restore click on programs, accessories, system tools and the system restore. Pick a day on the calendar before when the mouse was working and let the pc restore back to that time. It will restart then see if it works for you.

Mouse stopped working, but appears ok, batteries ok, can't determine problem

Hope this helps others. My mouse stopped controlling cursor but buttons worked. Problem was it would not work on a black table. Slip a piece of white paper under it and waaala! It works. I'm thinking optical mouse and dark surface might be an issue.
