On occasion my mouse will freeze up, will go from the arrow cursor to a black line with an arrow at each end, any ideas on cause or how to fix it, if I shut the computer down, sometimes that will take care of it, other times have to shut it down 2 times, any ideas
Only thing i can think of is that it sounds like it might be virus/spyware related. See if you can get a scan done with some good internet security software, i wouldn't be surprised if it picked something up.

Make certain the driver for your touchpad is running- usually it is synaptic- would be found under syntpenh.exe in your task manager. Make certain it is enabled in the mouse properties. If that does not work, then connect an external mouse and then disconnect it... sometimes that kicks the service back into starting correctly
This is a funny little problem; it made me smile. Your problem sounds like electro-magnetic interferance from your power adapter. When the electricity passes through your power adapter into your laptop, something is creating electro-magnetic noise in the RF (radio frequency) spectrum which is causing your mouse cursor to shake. I would recommend replacing the power adapter. You could also try plugging your power adapter into a UPS instead of directly into a wall or surge protector. It might help clean up the incoming power and reduce the line noise.
Freezing of mouse is associated with virus infection of your PC. So, get connected to the internet, and download the Paretologic Antivirus/or Trojan Remover software, and install it in your PC. The program once installed, run the virus scan. To clean your PC free from unwanted files, you can also download the Tune Utility of 2009 and install in your PC. I believe this will give you the solution needed by your problem. Just send your e-mail, if you still have the problem.
