SOURCE: frozen mouse with a touch pad laptop computer

Many laptops have a button, usually located right above the touchpad, that disables the touchpad.

And there may be drivers that need to be loaded for some touchpads to operate properly, in case you've reinstalled the OS.

Please first make sure that your adaptor is working.
Try to remove the battery and connect your laptop to the adaptor. Swith on. If nothing chages, then there is good chance that you have a motherboard related problem.

SOURCE: frozen mouse with a touch pad laptop computer

Dear MGK7,

That does make it more difficult! Okay, for future reference, when you have key control again and the mouse or touch pad stops working, if you have a standard 101 key keyboard, or even a laptop with one key instead of two on certain keys, you can do it this way:

1. Hit the Windows key, which will open your start menu.
2. Pressing the Windows key and Pause/break will take you to your system properties.
3. Minimizing and restoring screens hit Windows key and "D".
4. To get to Utility Manager, hit Windows key and "U". This will, among other things, allow you to choose to use only the keyboard or the mouse, so you can disconnect the mouse, among many other things.
5. Pressing Windows key and "F1" will take you to Help & Support.
6. Windows key plus "E" takes you to Windows Explorer".
7. Pressing "Cntrl, Alt, Delete" takes you to the task manager.

These keys should provide help in getting around in your system without a mouse.

To get to control panel, for example, press the Windows key to op[en the Start menu, and use the "up arrow" button to go to control panel.

Now that everything appears frozen, power your machine down. Remove the battery from the rear for a few minutes, even if you are operating on A/C plug in. Put the battery back in and power up. Did this make any difference?

You can always buy an inexpensive laptop mouse which works on USB. When you plug in the USB the mouse works independently of everything else. Then you could click the start up memory, help, and choose restore to an earlier time before this problem happened.

That usually will clear any problem.

Please let me know what happens.

SOURCE: I used the wrong adapter by mistake now my laptop

Yes you are correct. Due to wrong adaptor the power supply known as SMPS gets fried and causes mother-board damage too. So you need to repair your laptop's mother-board components and power supply too.

If this solution was helpful to you then please rate 100% (or FIXYA) for this solution, otherwise don't rate at all. It was my pleasure helping you.
With regards,

Image pad light comes on ocassionally, lap top freezes, can not turn off. HP Envy Windows 7

Good Day,
For clarifications, is it that the computer freezes or the mouse pad doesn't work again while the keyboard still works?
Because for your type of laptop, around the top left corner of your mouse pad, there is a small hollow. If you double tap this place, you deactivate the mouse pad and if you repeat the tapping, you activate it. That's why the light there comes on and off. So may be you check it to know if you tap here during your typing.
I hope this helps you? Thank you for using Fizya!

I have a tashiba portage 4010 i got used do i need a mouse

If this is your 4010, an early model, it has an AccuPoint II mouse (pad). They were never any good so your best bet is to just go and get a wired mouse. Check compatibility before buying, i.e. PS/2 or USB, most likeley the first option as it may not have a compatible USB port, if it does it will only be USB 1.0 complient.

I plug in my mouse to my laptop and it wont work, the bottem doesnt even turn red.. when i connect it all it says is usb device not recognized, it worked last night and tonight its not.

Try disconnecting the mouse from the usb port and reboot the unit.
Now, on your touch pad, top left blue led is let showing it is functioning. Press the center button next to the led, which will shut off the internal mouse.
Plug in your mouse to a different USB port and the unit should see the mouse.
If not and the mouse does not light up, replace the mouse.
You may have had a conflict with the internal and external mouse.

Emachines laptop e525 mouse pad not working at all so cannot use everything else starting up as normal

Look at the middle cover (above the keyboard). there are two buttons that touch the power switch, the one to the left enables/disables the touchpad. If it shows an orange light it is disabled. Just press it, and be careful not to hit it when turning unit on.
