I believe this would be caused by a couple of things. The first, and most likely is probobly that it needs a driver update. If this is not the case, go to computer properties(Right click 'My Computer', then hardware (if xp) then device manager. Go to pointing devices and uninstall the mouse driver.

Yes, you will be unable to control ur laptop. Simply turn off and then the computer will recognise the maouse/mousepad and install the driver.

The second problem could be to do with a nasty little bug out there thats causes both your curser and/or keyboard to act erraticly.

Sounds like your dealing with a software issue. Most likely a video driver. if there was a recent time that the machine worked, I'd run a system restore. Then look for what might have been installed that caused this problem so you can stay away from it.

Cursor is stuck in the middle of the page and will not move to the left side. The back space button or the shift left button do not respond?


You've probably "frozen" your pane. "Freeze Panes" is a feature which allows you to keep one or more left-hand columns or top rows visible while you scroll through your worksheet.

You didn't say which version of Excel your're using, but in Excel 2007, you can either freeze the Row 1, Column A, or any number of rows and columns based on which cell is selected (i.e., where your cursor is) when you click on "Freeze Panes."

In Excel 2007*, the way to fix this would be to click on the "View" tab, then the "Freeze Panes" icon, which will give you several choices. Click on "Unfreeze Panes." There you go.

* The steps are similar in other versions.

Curser freezes


When you said your cursor freeze, does the computer still respond or the whole computer froze. If the computer froze, then it could be anything from, memory, hard drive, cpu, or mainboard. Does the keyboard works, if just the cursor freeze, try using a usb mouse.

Mouse stops responding randomly


The issue may not necessarily be with the mouse. Are you able to use the keyboard once the mouse freezes? If you not even able to use the keyboard, there is some application installed on your computer or a virus due to which the mouse freezes. If, in case, the keyboard works even though the mouse is stuck, try changing the USB port or try a different mouse. Please revert back with any other observations. Good Luck
