Laptop computer cursor

I have had to use a regular mouse with my laptop because the cursor would no longer move--could I have hit a button out of anger and stalled it or is it going to cost me a fortune to have this repaired?

Re: laptop computer cursor

Yes, Toshiba models have a function key combination that will disable the built in touch pad, it is next to the function button to enable the external display output.

The cursor jumps backward often while I type, and writes behind where I am, lines behind.

You're probably hitting the touchpad with the heel of your hand while typing. Many people do it without realizing it, and the computer is just moving the cursor to where it thinks you're telling it to go. If you're doing lots of typing, you may want to plug in a USB external mouse and turn off the touchpad. This eliminates the cursor jumping, and a regular mouse makes moving around a document and selecting text easier.

I cannot move the arrow

Perhaps your mouse is not plugged in to the computer. If your mouse is a usb mouse it will have an end of it that looks like this:
It probably isn't blue on the inside though. It's probably silver or black
If your mouse is a ps2 mouse then it will look like this:

If the mouse is a ps2 mouse then when you plug it back in you will need to log off and then log back on to your computer for it to work. To log off you can press the windows key that looks like this:
and then use the tab button to navigate to the log off button and hit enter. Then hit tab until you can select yes and hit enter.

If it is a usb mouse then you can just plug it back in and it will work.

I can be typing and all of the sudden the cursor moves to another location and begins to print at that spot.

You're probably managing to hit the touchpad below the keyboard with the heel of your hand, or you're brushing it with a finger. This can cause the cursor to jump. Many people find it convenient to turn off the touchpad when using a word processing application, and you may want to plug in a regular mouse.

My mouse is not moving, it is stuck. pls where to i click or touch to make my mouse keep moving again thanks.looking forward to hearing fro u.

It is possible that you accidentally hit the click-lock button, usually located below the little screen where you move the mouse by fingers. Try to hit that area again, and release the mouse cursor to roam the screen again.

Good luck,

Mouse cursor wont move

most laptops have a way to enable/disable the touchpad for those that use an external mouse or do alot of typing and encouter the overactive touchpad.

hold the "FN" key and press the corospinding function "f button" to enable it.

the function key number will be different depending on your laptop and you should also check the laptop base for a button that may be specifically for this purpose.

Good Luck and Happy Hunting!! :)
