Did this start happening right after a change in the system? IE: a new installation or update. Reboot pc and tap f2 while it is starting. That should get you to safemode. While there uninstall and new software you added. If you did not install anything new, still go to safe mode and post again what you see.

Gateway Pointer Unresponsive


To troubleshoot this problem, first you must get a USB mouse and connect it to the laptop. Now, there are various laptop that have the ability to deactivate the pad control, it's different for every laptop, so you should check on the keyboard if you see anything that resemble the mouse pad. If it does, press it. There also could be a driver problem, just in case re-download the drivers by going to the Gateway website and click on the support tab. Just follow the instructions on the website. You should have an icon at the bottom right of your screen, where the date, battery, etc... are. Right click the mouse pad icon (if any) and check your options. If you need more help I'll be more than glad to help you out, but I'll be needing more info as to the laptop. Best of luck.

Gateway Laptop with windows 8. Mouse pointer gone and won't come back


See if the mouse pad has been accidentally turned off. This can be done via the "Function" button on your Gateway laptop. To enable your mouse clicker again on your Gateway, head on over to the "Control Menu" in Windows and double-click on the "Control Panel" icon. Click on the "Mouse" option under the "Printers and Other Hardwareicon1.png" tab. In the next menu that pops up, click on the tab listed as "Device Settings." From this menu, you should be able to locate a listing for the mouse pad on your Gateway laptop. Click on this listing. From here, you should be able to enable the mouse again. Click "OK."
  • Head over to the official Gateway site online (see Resources). The above enabling of the mouse device under "Device Settings" may not have worked. Make your way to the "Software and Drivers" area of the site.
  • Check over your Gateway manual and find your specific serial number for your machine. Enter the number into the Gateway site when prompted and check to see if any driver updates exist for your mouse on your machine. If so, click to download the update, and then double-click the file on your computericon1.png to install it. Restart your Gateway laptop to have the changes take place. Your mouse should now work.

    The Touch pads the Mouse Pointer uses is pressure sensitive and sometimes without warning WILL fail to work I own a CQ50 And Have a On Off Option for the mouse pad Yours does not Apparently it Is a bad sensor If you have a warranty send it in If not best suggestion for you is buy a USB mouse and use it Otherwise trying to have it replaced without a warranty can be costly.

    Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is


    If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

    If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.
