Re: Mouse

This is one of the best laptops to own or work on. Even though it says P3, it'll out perform early P4's with double the processor. Well, you probably already enabled it in the bios, right? These are inherently problem children concerning their mouses. When you disabled the on board mouse, was the external mouse still plugged in? If so, thats not good. Unplug the external mouse, boot to the bios (f2) and enable on all mouse configurations. Once it boots to windows, plug in the external mouse and see if it isn't recognized then. If you know how to remove the keyboard, it sounds like either the mouse is unplugged from the motherboard or the connection is damaged. In any case if you can get a look under the keyboard it's easy to verify. Good luck

Re: Mouse

If i were you, i would go into the bios when the machine is booting up, by pressing usually f2 or delete on the first black screen and setting all defaults in the bios, save it, then see if your mouse works.It may be that the bios is corrupt or misconfigured and that is why the integral mouse does not work.

Mouse didn't detected

Touch pad usb or wireless mouse ?
Laptops use the convenient touchpad and integrated scroll mouse that allow you to use just your finger to navigate Web pages, documents and open files and programs. Just like all other hardware, the laptop's integrated touchpad and mouse can experience errors and problems that cause you to lose functionality for a length of time. Whether the laptop's mouse is not working because of internal errors or conflicts with another device, several "tricks" can work to restore it.

Locate the function "Fn" button on your laptop in the lower left corner of the keyboard. Look in the keyboard's upper row (the F1 through F12 buttons) for an icon of a touchpad or computer mouse. This keyboard button acts as the toggle switch to enable and disable the built-in mouse and touchpad function. Press and hold the "Fn" button together with the mouse icon button. Look for the disable/enable symbol that briefly displays on your screen. Slide your finger over the laptop's mouse and attempt to use it as normal. Press the Windows keyboard key if using Windows 7, type "main.cpl" in the search box and press "Enter." Press the left arrow key to navigate over to the "Device Settings" tab. Press the tab key to reach the "Enable" button in this section. Press "Enter" on your keyboard. Press the tab key to reach the "Disable internal pointing device" check box. Press the space bar to remove the check mark. Put your finger on the touchpad, and move the pointer down to the "Apply" button. Click "Apply" to save the settings. Close the mouse "Properties" box. Press the keyboard "Windows" logo key to open the "Start Menu." Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer" menu. Press the up or down arrow key to highlight "Restart." Press "Enter" to restart your computer and attempt to use the laptop mouse as it should normally function. Open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Add and Remove" or "Uninstall" programs section. Highlight any secondary mouse devices in the list that you have installed for your laptop, such as an external USB mouse. Select the "Uninstall" option to remove any software and settings associated with this secondary mouse. Restart your computer and attempt to use the built-in laptop mouse as normal. Check to see if the mouse is working properly. Press the keyboard's "Windows" button to open the "Start Menu." Press the keyboard's arrow keys, "Enter" button and "Tab" to navigate to and open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Hardware and Sound" section, and press "Enter." Navigate to "Device Manager," and press "Enter" to open it. Find "Mice and other pointing devices from the list" and open its "Properties" dialog box. Select the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver." Allow Windows to search the Internet for drivers and to update them automatically. Restart your computer after the drivers are updated, and use your mouse as normal.

Laptop Touch Pad will not work

if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing

My mouse works fine while logging into my desktop but once i get there my mouse freezes up ????

Do you have an external mouse plugged in, if not, you may want to uninstall the Snapytics Driver. (not perfect spelling) but this driver disables the internal mouse if it has a problem or if an external such as usb is detected.

Acer 4720z mousepad not working

You may have a function key that can enable/disable it or a setting in the control panel > mouse > pointing devices. Or possibly a BIOS setting to enable/disable.

I installed a wireless mouse in my laptop but touchpad does't work

is the mouse still attached when the touchpad doesn't work or does it still not work when you detach the mouse, if it works after detaching the mouse, your computer automatically disables the touchpad when a mouse is plugged in.

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. 
Good luck!

Do not check the check box as leaving the touchpad enabled while using an external mouse will not cause any harm.
