Question about Computers & Internet
Arrow pointer will not move (frozen)
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
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.

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.

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.
