Depending on your laptop settings start by doing a FULL shutdown. After rebooting hopefully the mouse (assume you mean a touchpad) will be restored; and maybe the keys not working. If unsuccessful connect a USB mouse and USB keyboard and check settings of the touchpad and also select the default language keyboard. If still unsuccessful try reinstalling touchpad drivers. Consider a possibility of some problem or damage to the keypad and/or touchpad if this all happened recently and the above doesn't correct.
Try these steps.. Click start button, type "mouse" on Search Programs and Files, click "mouse" under control panel. In mouse properties options....as you an see the touch pad driver tab? click it. Choose or click option button and you can enable the right and left click button. About the keyboard problem,,,,,go to device manager, right click the standard PS/2 keyboard..uninstall it. Windows restarting and the keyboard driver will re install automatically.. check if the keyboard works fine.
1) try to RESTORE to some point where the computer was working. 2) Update the BIOS +CHIPSET and RUN it. 2a) see if working. If NOT working go the step #3 3) update the USB driver from the supplier company. 4) updae the driver for keyboard +mouse , uninstall and reinstall. God bless you
I'll assume your touchpad and built-in mouse are not working, hence your need for the USB mouse. If the touch pad and built-in mouse are working but you find them awkward to use (another reason some users connect USB mice to notebooks), then you might find it easier to briefly persevere and use the touchpad and built-in mouse for only a few seconds just to complete the simple steps outlined below. If not, the keyboard method detailed below is less efficient and more cumbersome but equally effective. This driver that is being requested is already built-in to Windows. Use the TAB and down or up arrows keys on your keyboard to move the cursor to the button you want to activate -> press the ENTER key to activate the button that the cursor has settled on keys on your Click Next -> No (to alternative search methods) -> search the whole computer for the driver -> next -> finish -> if your USB mouse does not work straight away, press the windows logo key bottom left of your keyboard -> the use the keyboard arrow keys to move once up and then left to the shutdown button -> press ENTER -> use the arrow keys to move the cursor to RESTART -> press ENTER.
No, the Generic USB mouse drivers included in any NT based windows install, 2000, XP, Vista and 7 will run this mouse. If the mouse fails to work on your computer first try a full shutdown then power up. If this doesn't work, you may have damaged the cord or have a faulty USB, try moving the mouse to a different USB port, and try more than two as any two could be sharing a single hub.
You may have one of two kinds of mice. One has a round green colored connector, the other one has a flat connector.
If you have the first kind, with the green colored connector( called a PS/2 mouse), shutdown your computer using the keyboard (Press the Windows key, then press the U key. Then, once again press the U key to shutdown.
Now insert the green connector into the corresponding green connector at the back of the computer. If it's already connected, unplug it and inspect whether it has any bent or broken pin inside the green connector. If not, then carefully re-insert in, taking care about the notch. Alight it with the notch on the green connector on the computer side. Both of them may have an arrow.
If you have the second type of mouse, with the flat connector (called a USB mouse), you need not shutdown and just unplug it and re-inserting it in the USB port should make it work, even when Windows is running.
If your mouse doesn't work, even after you tried the above, test it on some other computer, using the same methods mentioned above. If it doesn't work on the other computer, it's defective and may need a replacement.
