Re: laptop

Its really important you tell us what menu comes up it will help heaps. now...

your computer is not initialising correclty this could be becuse of a hardware or driver conflict, did you install hardware or open the computer recenlty?

bootup the computer in safe mode or try last known good configuration... this should solve the problem as it sounds like purely a software problem.

Please press Fn+F9 key to ensure the mouse pad isn't disabled. The key should have these symbols on it.

Cursor disabled

Try going to control panel, then personalization, then mouse pointers. Under mouse properties, go to pointers and try to use windows black (system scheme). See if changing your mouse poiners makes it appear.
