Some laptops have a key sequence to activate or disable the onboard touchpad.
Look for Fn+F8(or another combination) the key should have a mouse symbol on it.

My touch pad for Lenovo N500 just stopped working; the mouse pointer is stuck. I have to use and external mouse. Please how do i have my touch pad working again

It most likely has something conductive around the edges. Clean the pad with a cloth or paper towel that has 99% isopropyl alcohol on it. Use something like a toothpick to push the cloth or paper right into the edges. Once it is clean, and completely dry, try again. If it still doesn't work you may need to check the connection inside the laptop.

My Lenovo mouse touch pad stack. and i didn't use it what r the posible soulutions

I do. Open the Lenovo 3000 N500 Notebook PC, and un-stick it.

You need the Service Manual.
Lenovo calls it an HMM.
Hardware Maintenance Manual

Below is the Lenovo Support link for the download page, for the Lenovo 3000 N500's Hardware Maintenance Manual. The Top file listed is the one you want.

Either the site is updating right now, or Lenovo no longer offers this manual. Clicking on the file does no good.

No big deal.

Copy this link, paste it into your address bar, and press the Enter key.
It's a direct link to the HMM file.

My cursor wont move when I use the onboard mouse on my Lenovo N500 laptop. How do I unfreeze it

There is a little button that controls the cursor of your laptop.All you need to do is to press the button just right above the onboard mouse and it would unfreeze.You might have also mistakenly poured water or any liquid on thar surface,it could also affect the cursor.

What is your question?
If you are asking about a mouse, any should work.
The wireless mice typically do not use the same type of wireless that you would be using for internet, so there's no issue of interference.

Lenovo n500 laptop ... mouse pad not working

The mouse pad maybe faulty or the ribbon cable from the mouse pad to the motherboard may not be properly connected. Reseat this cable.
You can connect an USB optical mouse to the laptop. I prefer you use a USB mouse all the time over the mouse pad.
