Does the mouse work? I would Cold-stat the machine: 1) remove AC plug from outlet, 2) remove battery, 3) hold down on/off button for 10 seconds, 4) replace battery, 5) plug into wall outlet 6) push on/off button.let me know if there is any change, if not you can try another procedure.

Hook a external keyboard to make sure it is working, if yes! the laptop keyboard will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: asus netbook cursor stuck

Make sure there is not a lock on the top middle of the touchpad that you can press to toggle the lock/unlock. if so, press it. Otherwise I would try booting up in safe mode and see if the cursor locks.

I have the Dell 1525. The screen is black with only the cursor appearing. Please advise


Check to see if you have the machine switched out to a stand alone monitor. This is a feature on many lap tops that lets you re-direct the signal out to a larger monitor, or if your monitor fails you can display the computer info on another screen. This feature is engaged by holding down the Fn key and tapping teither the F4, or F6 key on many lap tops. This feature can be toggled by both displaying at the same time or switched to the stand alone or the Lap top.

The other cause is that the machine has malfunctioned usually because of the CPU failure and there is nothing to boot the machine up.

Your getting this screen because there is a hardware failure. Fix the problem and you wont need the BIOS password.

Press<esc> to enable startup message, This should give you more info on the problem.
