Question about Acer Aspire 5630 Notebook
My cat sat on my laptop and put my computer into standby mode. I undid it and then I had to reboot my computer because the computer was running really slow.
At reboot the mouse was frozen in the middle of the screen and it was after a second reboot. I am wondering if there is a keystroke that was pressed and maybe it can be undone?
It's a synaptic mousepad built into a Toshiba Windows Vista.
The" fn" and another key might have been pressed. If theres any keys which have something that looks like a touchpad or a finger or a finger on a touchpad on them, and if restarting doesn't work, try pressing fn and that button.

Tips for a great answer:
restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer
Reboot the computer As the computer is booting repeatadly press the F8 key as the computer is booting
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 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)
Start Windows Normally
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
select safe mode
once you are in safe mode
click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver
