SOURCE: My laptop boots up but no interaction with the cursor, the yellow light near the touchpad is lit

First get to the dell support site and download the driver for the touch pad..and run it again in the laptop ..If this will not fix the issue you have to consider reinstalling the computer cause you may have a bug or something affecting it ..or open it up and check the ribbon of the pad and see if it has no damages...If you find a spare part you may change it ..if you suspect it has issues..but this is not a frequent issue and most likely it is from the driver..Either was not installed after a complete re-installation of the Operation system ..or something interfered and corrupted its functions .
Here is the link for your model ..where you can look for drivers..(select your operation system )
just select the OS you use ..and under the mouse and will find 2 drivers for your touch pad...Download the most recent one..and run it ...into the notebook ..restart and see if it works or not ..Good luck and please rate the answer if it helps ..

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron N5040 touchpad not working while charging

If battery works and ac adapter has problems that means electrolytic capacitors maybe dried up(not supplying the current needed to run the laptop) and has to be cured by using the laptop more often.

Make sure there is not a lock on the top middle of the touchpad that you can press to toggle the lock/unlock. if so, press it. Otherwise I would try booting up in safe mode and see if the cursor locks.

My mouse has stoped workin i just turned the lap top of and turned it back on again and it wansnt working the click button does'nt work either.

If you are referring to an actual "regular" mouse, unplug it from the USB and try plugging back in again.

If you are referring to the "TouchPad" type on a laptop, usually there is a tiny button near the touchpad that you may have inadvertently shut off by hitting it. Mine is right at the top part toward the screen, but still part of the touchpad. If you can't find the little button then refer to your manual if you got one to find out where the off button is for your touchpad and turn it back on.

hope this helps, if not I will check further to see what to do!

My cursor will not move on my laptop screen


The reason your cursor will not show on screen is because the laptop jammed.

To fix this,

Try to shut down properly,

Then you remove the battery and reinstall it.

Turn it on back and your cursor will come back on.

Take care
