Step 1:
For a standard trackball mouse, unplug the mouse, turn it over and then twist the retaining ring counter-clockwise to remove it. Remove the trackball inside the mouse. Clean the trackball with warm water and dry carefully. Clean the rollers inside the mouse with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. Replace the trackball, then secure it with the retaining ring. Clean the outside of the mouse with rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball. For an optical or wireless mouse, clean the bottom of the mouse and the surface it sits on with a damp cloth. Solve Hardware Problems Make sure the mouse is connected properly. The connector will either be USB or PS/2. A PS/2 connector is color-coded green and can only be inserted in one direction. Check for any bent or broken pins or damage, then carefully plug it in, making sure the connection is secure. Reboot the computer. Connect the mouse to another computer, then reboot the PC. If the mouse works after testing it on another computer, the problem is most likely with your PC or operating system. Also, try a different mouse on your computer. If there is no PC freeze, your mouse is probably malfunctioning. Switch to a different USB port. Sometimes mouse freeze will occur if the mouse is connected to a USB hub. Connect the mouse directly to one of the USB ports on your PC. Try different ports until you find one that works. Replace the batteries. If you have a wireless mouse, replace the batteries with fresh ones. Also, try using a different kind of mouse pad. Sometimes surface imperfections can interfere with the operation of a wireless or optical mouse. Install more RAM or memory. If your PC doesn't have enough memory, PC mouse freeze may occur when you are running resource intensive programs. Installing more RAM will help your PC run more efficiently. Solve Software Problems Check for device conflicts. When you install another device on your computer, it can sometimes conflict with a PC mouse. Remove any new hardware and drivers you may have installed, then reboot the computer. Reinstall PC mouse drivers. In Windows, open "Control Panel" then "System." Select the "Device Manager" tab, then scroll to and select your mouse. Uninstall any drivers that are listed. Unplug the mouse and reboot the PC. Plug the mouse back in, reboot the system, then allow Windows to reinstall the drivers if prompted. Remove viruses. PC mouse freeze and other serious problems can be caused by viruses lurking on your system.Set the program to run a complete scan every 24 hours. Also make sure the virus definitions are updated regularly. Turn off video acceleration. Sometimes video acceleration can cause PC mouse freeze. Go to "Control Panel," then click "Display," and then "Change Display Settings." Click the "Advanced Settings" button, then the "performance" tab. Set the acceleration slider to "None," then reboot. Repeat the process moving the slider up one notch until you have the maximum amount of acceleration with no mouse freeze

Is the hard drive making a clacking noise, and/or does the mouse freeze only once or freeze and unfreeze a few times before dying completely?

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5100 ; mouse freezes right after boot up

hi, yes it is a motherboard issue-i have 2 of those with same problem. new boards for that model are costly. however i found a work around-get a usb pcmcia card put it in the slot on the side-then plug your mouse or other usb devices and you should be ok! I did this a year ago and it runs like new! way cheaper than getting a new one. this is a big problem with these 5100 models. acer no help-other than selling you a new mainboard. this is the best way 2 make it work again. the pcmcia cards are cheap enough. and after that you can get a usb hub if you need more ports. good luck! and please rate this solution. and make sure 2 turn on the cardbus if not on allready. (in epower manager) this will work! reply if you need help! be well!

Mouse freezes


If it is wireless try putting in some new batteries and moving the receiver to a different USB port. You could also try moving or disabling any other wireless equipment nearby to see if that could be causing it.

If it is a wired mouse try a different USB port, making sure it is plugged in directly rather than into a USB hub, re-installing the driver and rebooting the PC. With more information I could help further.

Freezing laptop


It is possible that the driver is not installed correctly, or not even installed at all. What you can try, is to go to manufacturers web site, and download the driver needed for it, and install it

Can move the mouse but not clikc with the touchpad


Hi,

if you installed an external mouse, it would over-ride the touchpad.
try removing the external mouse, and tap the touchpad twice as if you were double clicking it.
also you could try re-installing the touchpad device driver, usually synoptics or similar.

Dynex wireless mouse DX-PWLMSE won't work


The mouse should be Plug and Play. Did you install the drivers before plugging the mouse's receiver in? The PC has to have the drivers first in order to take advantage of the Plug and Play capability. If you plugged the mouse's receiver in before installing the drivers, unplug the mouse receiver, uninstall the driver, reboot your PC, reinstall the driver, then plug the receiver in and you should be fine.

Otherwise, press the Connect button on the receiver first, and then the Connect button on the mouse, and that should establish the connection. You don't need to disable your touch pad in order to use the mouse.

Frozen cursor on new emachine laptop


Before you plan to return make sure you have done some or all of this things first:

1. Did you reboot after you installed the Enterprise 2007 ?
2. Did you make sure that if its a USB mouse that it is securely connected to the USB port ?
3. Were you able to move your mouse without any problem at all before the software installation ?
4. Have you had this problem before the installation of Enterprise 2007 ?
5. Have you done all your software and windows updates ?
6. Will the mouse work when booting into Safe Mode ( pressing F8 during re-boot before Windows Vista loads) If it does then your softwares need to be updated.
7. Did you check you device manager to see that theres no yellow exclamation anywhere in the Mice and othert pointing devices or under the USB controller section?
8. Is there a legacy USB port to be activated on your computer BIOS ?

If the installation caused your mouse to be frozen then try and uninstall the Enterprise 2007 by using your keyboard and tab to the programs uninstall.

If your mouse still doesn't move after doing all of the above things
then try another new USB mouse. Sometimes you may have to wait for several seconds (even up to a minute for new usb mouse detection) before the USB mouse cursor will move. If the second new USB mouse still wont work then return it to where you bought it as it could be faulty usb connector
