Hold down the FN button and up on the top of the keyboard there will be a button with a picture of a mouse. As your holding down your FN button hit the other button and see if it enables your mouse. Something should come up on the screen showing you that its enabling or disabling the mouse.

My Lenovo mouse won't work. It connects and registers but won't move? Is there any help?


Hello,

Try booting to safe mode and check if your mouse works inside safe mode.

Restart the computer and tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode. Use the arrow keys to highlight either safe mode or safe mode with networking. Hit enter.

Once you are inside safe mode, check if your mouse works. If it works, then you just need to update the mouse driver. You can use RadarSync to search and install the update into your computer. You better use Safe Mode with Networking because RadarSync needs the internet or even the manual updating process needs an internet connection.

I hope this helps!

Mouse arrow shows but won't move with touch pad or button


Hi Wayne ,

If it fell off the edge of your bed last night it is likely that you have damaged the mouse track pad in some way.

you might have to order a new one off of ebay and have someone fit it for you !!

Or it might be as simple as the ribbon cable in the track pad has come loose and will need to be refitted.

can you see the movement of the track pad in the right hand bottom corner of the screen when you move the mouse with the track pad and by using an external USB mouse to get to the desktop?

I cannot move the arrow


Perhaps your mouse is not plugged in to the computer. If your mouse is a usb mouse it will have an end of it that looks like this:

It probably isn't blue on the inside though. It's probably silver or black
If your mouse is a ps2 mouse then it will look like this:

If the mouse is a ps2 mouse then when you plug it back in you will need to log off and then log back on to your computer for it to work. To log off you can press the windows key that looks like this:

and then use the tab button to navigate to the log off button and hit enter. Then hit tab until you can select yes and hit enter.

If it is a usb mouse then you can just plug it back in and it will work.

Cannot move cursor by touchpad. Can't shut it down either, since I can't go to start menu.


Try the following: 1. Check if the on/off button on your touch pad is turned on. 2. Restart the computer by pressing ALT+F4 until you get a shut down screen and then using arrow keys to scroll to restart. 3. If still not working, try reinstalling your touch pad drivers from the disk you got with your computer (connect an external mouse to do so, if not introduced to keyboard shortcuts). Good luck and please rate if something helps.

My touchpad has stopped working and the only way i can properly use it, is by plugging in a computer mouse. The touchpad allows me to move the mouse arrow icon all over the screen, but when trying to...


You can turn on "tapping" and will be able to tap instead of click. It seems like hardware problem. Take the computer apart and check the flat cable from the touchpad to the motherboard. Check with a mutltimeter whether the buttons are making contact on click.

My cursor froze.


this is a software or possibly a touch pad mouse issue. First you can quickly correct this by going to accessories located under start in Vista and going to system recovery. Tell it in that section to revert to an earlier time. Remember when the mouse was working? What date? click on the date when the mouse was working and click next.

The computer will reboot and mouse should be working. If not the mouse touch pad may need to be replaced. Buy a usb mouse for now if you have to work on it immediatly.

Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is


If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.
