Mouse has power but just sits in middle of screen

The connection to the mouse is working but the computer seemed to freeze up last night and now the little arrow just sits in the middle of the screen.

    You say that the connection to the mouse is working, but the cursor won't respond...what makes you think that the connection is working? I am assuming that this is an optical wireless mouse...

Has the computer been ON all the time? What type of mouse is it, PS2 (round plug) or USB (flat plug). If it is PS2 and it got unplugged, it will not work again until you power the system down, make sure the mouse is properly connected and then start the system again. The mouse should be detected and operated normally once the OS is up and running.

Good luck and please let me know how it works out for you.

What would cause computer not to turn on when the power is loaded and the screen to stay black?


Im sorry about your situation.

Does the computer turn on??
If the computer turns on do you hear or can you see the fan working??

If the computer turns on does it stay on or does it shut down after a few minutes??

This will help us determine what is going on.

I have a dell inspiron 531s. it is freezing off and on. it would work well for a day then it would just freeze, not responding to the mouse or keyboard. i have reformated the hard drive change the memory...


I had the same issue. I upgraded to Windows 7 and things did work allot better but the hanging still occured. I ran system mechanic and found there was a drive problem. This was repared by the program.
The problem occured again last night and the system will not boot past the dell splash screen. I am thinking it might be the motherboard that is a fault. Mine is out of its 12 month warranty, so no way to get Dell to investigate further. Also check the systems logs after the hang happens and see if there was something logged that caused the hang.

I hope this helps?

Regards,

Lannon

Started computer up after 1 year, everything ok except mouse not working, tried new mouse but arrow still stays in the middle of the screen. Tried in different ports, but continues to not work.


this is a typical port issue. and the first thing you need to do is to reboot the pc and let it sit for about 5 minutes before turning it on. this way you will let your PC to refresh that can help solve the port issues of your computer.

Black Screen on Startup.


Did you try " Last known good configuration at start up. If after boot you press the F8 key where you said you went into safe mode, did you try to load the good known config. It sounds like you have a corrupted registry.

Dell Dimension 2400 Freezes frequently


check inside the case of the computer to make sure that the interface cable between the hard drive and the motherboard are fully connected. Also check to see if the RAM modules are fully inserted into their slots. If not, they try removing them one by one, until the computer starts up faster. If this doesn't fix it, then try a new hard drive, and interface cable.

Freeze on opening screen


Hi, It is possible that the CD ROM Drive is failing when the system hangs at this screen. You could disconnect the drive and see if it powers up all the time without fail. Also check all other IDE cable connections from the motherboard to the hard drive and any other drives as there may be a loose one etc.

Make sure you will not be voiding any warranty you may have with the machine before you do this.

Please ask if you need any help with this, and let me know how you go.
