I hoped you would clarify whether your using an external mouse or the touch-pad, but...

Possible bad Touch-Pad. Connect an external mouse, does it work? If it does then it is probably a bad Touch-Pad. Just order a new Palmrest.

It may also be just a simple connection issue. Take out the keyboard and see if you can reseat the connection for the palmest to the motherboard(MAKE SURE THE PC IS OFF, UNPLUGGED, and BATTERY is OUT). The connection on the motherboard may be bad, but not likely.

The 1525 is not fun to take apart, but its not too bad.

Try the easier solutions first. You may find purchasing a $20 external mouse is more beneficial than troublehsooting.

Have you tried installing a regular mouse?

also you can try going to the device manager and uninstalling the touchpad driver and then reinstall it.

I have a Toshiba LapTop Windows 7 My granddaughter pushed keys and now i can't get the cursor to move. I have tried shutting down and it is still frozen in the middle .


Are you using the trackpad to manipulate the cursor, or are you using an external mouse?

If you're using the trackpad, it may be as simple as using the Fn keys and the corresponding F keys at the top of the keyboard to enable the trackpad feature again. If that doesn't work, try plugging in an external mouse via USB port to see if that works.
If you're using an external mouse, then try to see if the cursor moves while using the trackpad.

Hopefully one of these options will give you control back over your cursor again.

Cursor is frozen at boot up.


Hold down the FN key and as your doing that, look for the F key on top where there is a picture of a mouse and press that and it should enable the mouse.
