if everyting is frozen and you cannot do anything with your computer, you can wait a couple minutes to see if it is only working on something in the background that is taking up all its resources... if it does not start responding by itself, and you do not want to wait anymore... push the PC's start button that you use to turn your computer on (not the windows start button) for 8 seconds and it should turn off. NOTE: any changes to data that was open and and not saved will be lost.
Look at the middle cover (above the keyboard). there are two buttons that touch the power switch, the one to the left enables/disables the touchpad. If it shows an orange light it is disabled. Just press it, and be careful not to hit it when turning unit on.
First I would replace the batteries.
I had the same problem a couple of years ago. The solution for me was getting rid of McAfee AV. To check if it is your problem, use CTL-ALT DEL to turn McAfee off and see if that gets rid of your mouse freeze ups.
How much memory do she have installed in your
computer? It may need to be, increased, as this is likely to be the cause
of your computer freezing, rebooting, times out, or shutting down.
Hope this is of some help. Bud
You can start by uninstalling the program you installed before this started happening. You can also do system restore which you'll find in start>accessories>system tools.
If nogo, try disconnecting devices on the back of the computer except the keyboard, mouse, monitor and power. Turn the computer on without them. If the issue disappeared, reconnect what you unplugged one at a time until you find the culprit.
