Are you using the touchpad, or a regular mouse plugged into the laptop. If you are using the touchpad on the laptop, make sure it is enabled. There is a button to the right of the F12 key to enable/disable the touchpad. If you are using an external mouse connected to the laptop, try restarting the computer by pressing the power button once (that will initiate a shut down).

SOURCE: Dell laptop pointer problem

Hi,
This is a very common problem for most Dells this age.
You can try this repair if you feel comfortable.
Remove the keyboard by removing the power button bar (just gently pry up from the right side working left)
re-insert the mouse cable which is coming from the pad/palm rest. Re-assemble.
Check if all the screws on bottom of the unit are tight, especially around the palm rest area.
Good luck

SOURCE: the arrow is frozen on my laptop other than that the pc is working normally

Could be the mouse lock key. I am unsure as to which key it is on yours. Mine is the F9 key. it will have a picture of 2 mouse on , 1 with a no go sign over it (circle with a diagonal line through) try pressing the "fn" key and F9 and see if this unlocks the cursor.

SOURCE: Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is

If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.

My Cursor pointer is frozen. The arrow is frozen but if I move the mouse and it blindly finds a tab and I click it that works but no movement of the arrow until I reboot


Does it happen on a specific application or all over your screen? Are you using a special mouse/tracking ball/pointing device? Is this a laptop or a desktop? if you use a USB "simple" mouse does it work. Seems to me like a driver problem.

I have dell 110L inspirion with XP professional.


I think your Windows installation is damaged. Boot from your operating system CD. (Go into setup mode F2 or delete during bootup. Go to the Boot select screen and set up to boot from CD. Place your OS CD in the drive and power on.) When it boots, it should give you the option of REPAIR. Select this and allow Windows to repair itself. I hope this helps you resolve your problem.
