Re: my laptop mouse wont work
Do you mean the mouse integrated in the laptop or an external USB mouse?
If it is the integrated mouse, try to get an USB mouse, plug it and wait until your laptop recognize it, assuming you are working in Windows XP right clic on My Computer, clic on Properties --> Hardware --> Device Manager , double clic on Mice and other pointing devices, once here, look for the mouse of your laptop (do not mis identify it with the external mouse that you just plugged) right clic on it and clic on uninstall.
Restart your laptop, once in windows again it will recognize the mouse as a new device and will install the drivers again.

First, try an external mouse. If that works, Click start (orb)> select control panel> select hardware and sound> select mouse> your mouse and touchpad software window will open (example: Synaptics is mine) select touchpad tab were you can turn it back on or reset to default as well as adjustments to your devices. Let us know either way if this helps you. Make it a great day!
This is a common problem with laptops, unfortunately, there is no real solution of fixing the touch pad. The best solution is to use an external usb mouse. I recomend an optical mouse, they cost about 5 US dollars.
