Mouse pad keeps freezing

My mouse pad keeps freezing so i would restart the computer and see if it hopefully works. But most of the time it doesnt so i have to press a random key or restart the page then it will work or wont work all but when it works it only works for a few seconds then freezes. usally when that happens it scrolls to the bottom of the page and then i have no control over it but when i leave it on sleep mode for a long while it starts to work longer than usual.

SOURCE: Asus Laptop freeze after starting

if the fan does not work... don't use the computer till you replace the fan with one that is working.... a good chance you will burn out the cpu. usually thermal shutdown occurs when the cpu gets too hot... you may also want to consider purchasing a notebook cooler....

Be sure to use the latest available Dell Drivers. Browse to this page and select the settings that apply for your system. Then, under Input Device Drivers, download and install the Dell Driver: Touchpad/Pointing Stick.

Since I do not know the Operating System you are working with (xp, vista, linux,...) I can not give you more specific help.

SOURCE: keyboard locks randomly after login

Sound like you might have a virus - try running antivirus program - such as Avast or Antivir - which is free.
If that doesn't work, then try doing a System Restore - if that doesn't work, then do a System Recovery complete re-install - but back up your pictures and documents first as you will lose everything and you'll be starting over again fresh.

I have a 4510s and had this problem before.
Part of the problem was synaptics driver was freezing, Driver Synaptics software upgrade may help if that is part of your problem.

Have you opened the notebook to upgrade or remove the HDD for any reason?
If so, you should make sure the plastic of the palmrest (which houses the touchpad mouse) has been correctly fitted back in place. It may also help to remove the palmrest and ensure the flexible cable is correctly inserted in the ZIF connector.
I also notice there are some contact points from the PC to the underside of the trackpad, it may pay to clean those with metho to make sure the electrical connection is good.

SOURCE: My Dell Inspiron 1525 freezes randomly after

If the system works fine in safe mode then generally it would indicate that one of the startup programs or service is causing the system to lock up. the best way to test this would be to disable the startup by booting to safe mode then typing the command MSCONFIG inside the run box. you can disable all of the items underneath the startup tab. under the services tab you will need to put a check on hide all microsoft services then unchecking the unnecessary services. then restarting in normal mode to test if the computer will still lock up.

How di make my mouse work


usb mouse or mouse bad ?

Look at the type of mouse you have.

To date, there are three types of mice: the USB mouse, the PS/2 mouse and the Bluetooth mouse.


USB mice connect with a USB adapter, which has a rectangular shape. Conversely, the PS/2 mouse uses a PS/2 adapter, which is round.


Finally, there's the Bluetooth mouse, which has no external adapters.

Plug the mouse into your machine.


Now, how you do this will depend on the mouse you're using.

With a USB mouse, simply plug your device into your laptop's USB adapter, which will also be rectangular in shape.


For PS/2 mice, you'll need to plug it into a PS/2 adapter. Plug your mouse into the PS/2 end then plug the other end into your laptop's USB adapter.

And for Bluetooth mice, no plugging is required.

Install the mouse drivers.


If your mouse is not plug-and-play, you're going to need to install its drivers. To do this, insert the CD or diskette that came with your device.

The installation should occur automatically.


Pair your mouse, if using a Bluetooth mouse.

At this stage, non-Bluetooth mice are ready to be used.


However, if you are installing a Bluetooth mouse, you must perform one additional step: pairing it to your machine.


To achieve this, use your laptop's touchpad and right-click on your Windows screen. Select the option "Pair Device." From there, follow the on-screen instructions to sync your mouse with yourcomputer.



Place your mouse onto a mouse pad. Before using your mouse, you need to place it onto a mouse pad.

This should be done for all types of mice, whether they are wireless or trackball.

Otherwise, movement will be difficult



mouse pad


Examine your mouse pad.

Dirt and grime can affect performance and slow down mouse sensitivity, if not shut it down altogether.


Make sure the surface of the track pad is clean and that there is nothing that has managed to get beneath it or around any trackball buttons that could affect the pressing and depressing of the component.


Check to see if your mouse pad has been turned off.

If the Fn (Function) button at the bottom left of the keyboard is pressed in conjunction with some other key on the keyboard it can result in the disabling of the mouse pad.


To enable your mouse pad on a Windows PC go to the Control Menu.

Under the Printers and Other Hardware option, click on Mouse.

Then, click on the tab on the top of the pop-up menu that says Device Settings.

The touch pad for your computer should come up as a selectable option. Click on it and you will see the option to enable your device, then click OK. If this does not work,


Check the manufacturer of your laptop (for example, Toshiba) and then navigate to their official website. Find an area for Software and Drivers, and move on to that area.


Enter your laptop number (check your documentation/manuals and/or the bottom of the computer) and look through the drivers that are presented as a result of this number input.


It could be that your mouse pad simply needs updated drivers. Find the driver that corresponds to your computer and mouse pad (for example, most Acer laptops use a Synaptics touch pad).


Then, click on download.

Once the drivers have downloaded, double click them to ensure they install, restart your laptop, and your mouse pad should be working again.


hope this helps

Laptop mouse not moving properly


If u r talking about the Mouse pad on ur laptop, then i guess u should reinstall the driver of ur touch pad..
U can do so by going to Properties of my computer
Open device manager & select mouse
Now simply uninstall the device & restart your system..
if u cant restart it then simply press F5 inside ur device manager tab. It will show a pop up named, NEW HARDWARE FOUND.
Let it install it... Its ur mouse ( Touch Pad) & after it installs its driver, restart ur system

now check out whether it works or not..

Hope this works u out..
If u like my post please rate me up..
