Ge wired mouse scroll wheel doesn't work


John:

The screws to open your mouse are hidden under the glide pads on the bottom of your mouse. remove the glide pads carefully and you'll see the screws. put the glide pads on with a non-permanent adhesive (like contact cement).

Cq60 frozen mouse pad


Since you don't seem to want to help us in helping you, by being more detailed about your mouse, or mouse pad, problem, I will give you some general advice:

- This is a laptop, yes?
- It has one of those little areas where you can use your finger, instead of a mouse?
- Look in Device Manager, or even in the Mouse option in Control Panel, and see if you have a mouse configured for your laptop, in addition to the built-in finger pad for use as a mouse.
- If you find there are two separate devices, one for the laptop-supplied mouse square, or rectangle, with the buttons on the bottom, for use instead of a mouse, and one for an external mouse, then make sure you have designated the built-in pad for use as a mouse. If, however, you want to use an external mouse, then you do the opposite, and ensure that the external mouse is selected as the device you wish to use for a mouse, and disable the built-in mouse/finger pad software, so that you do not have a conflict.

One or the other must be primary, and the one not primary must be disabled, or your laptop must be told not to use that other one.

Apparently - again, because you gave us absolutely no details - there is a hardware conflict and the laptop doesn't know which device to use, so it is not using either, and you're stuck without the benefit of any pointing device.

All the work you need to do with device manager and control panel must be done with keystrokes, and for that you must use Windows' Help to learn which keys will do what. Usually the four arrow keys, near the numeric pad, along with Page Up and Page Down, and the Tab button, or Shift+Tab, to go backwards, are all you might need to reset things the way they need to be set.

I hope you understand that absent any details at all, the only advice you will get from anyone here, is going to be educated guesswork.

Best of luck to you.

Cheers!

Mouse doesn't work. touchpad works fine. lenovo G470


LOL, go into the mouse and touch pad properties and make sure you don't have the mouse disabled or blocked.

Does the point work from the touchpad when you have the usb mouse plugged in? If not you have the mouse pointer disabled. There might be a button at the top of the touch pad in the middle that you press to toggle the mouse pointer. There could also be a set of keystrokes you hit to toggle the mouse. For example I just worked on one last week where you had to Press and Hold the Alt key then hit the F6 key. Function Key F6 had the icon of a finger inside a square which represented the touchpad.

Click Start/Control Panel and look at the mouse and touchpad properties. There may be settings where you can disable one if the other is present.

My Dell Vostro 1014 laptop's touch pad does not work!! The buttons work fine but I'm having problems with the pad. The drivers are up to date and the application used to control the touchpad c


If you have a external mouse, or you can borrow, go into device manager to see if the pad is enabled, if okay! try a system restore bringing the computer back in time before this happened, if still no luck the sensor pad maybe defective, the last option a complete recovery of the operational system to factory setting, this will prove if the sensor pad is defective, or wire ribbon might have come loose from the motherboard.

Hey my toshiba laptop pad mouse dosn't work it's frozen ,,i only bought it before 10 days ..and i can't use another mouse help me plz


This problem may occurs due to hardware fault or due to some setting changes doesn't matter that you did or not but sometimes it happened because of some other programs.
Here is the solution if it's not a hardware fault:
* Click on Start button
* Then select Control Panel
* Now select the Mouse option
* Under Mouse option window click on Device Settings and in that window touch-pad should be listed...
* Enable it.
Hope this will solve your problem.

My Mouse track pad is pushing the mouse into the upper right corner of the screen. Do I need a new thumbpad? Is this an easy fix? Should I send it in?


Hi there, please open your touchpad settings and set the touch pad thumb pressing sense location. Make it center of touch pad & save the settings. Total sensible location is 5. 4 corner & 1 center. Just fixed center. Its will work proper. If not then go for new one.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.
