Make sure to uninstall the original mouse. Use arrow keys to maneuver. Did you install the driver software that should have come with the new mouse? Try going to 'Control Panel', mouse, select options. Also go to system, hardware, device manager, mice and other pointing device, (double click) entry, sub entry, selections.

Sounds like either a Windows fault (may need to reinstall Windows, after saving your important data) or a USB fault if you haven't tried the PS/2 mouse socket at the rear.

My cursor is frozen in the middle of my window vista xp screen.It does not move at all, but the key board is working okay. do you have any tip how to fix it?


Easiest solution would be to disconnect and reconnect mouse and reboot. If this does not work, try another mouse to see if the problem is the mouse or the computer.

Mouse left button click is highlighting several programs at once. Mouse assumed to be faulty and replaced, but problem persists


It seems that you have activated click lock. The best way to resolve it is you restore your computer
Restart the computer in safe mode
Log in as administrator
Restore the computer to a date when it was working fine
reboot in normal mode
this should resolve your issue

Wireless mouse and keyboard issues


If you have both sets of keyboard and mouse plugged in, turn off the computer and remove the old mouse and plug in the new mouse. Reboot and if necessary use the keyboard to login. Once windows is loaded let it detect the new mouse and then shut down again. Take out the old keyboard and reboot. You should now be able to use both new pieces without problems.

Win XP Home no longer works, won't boot from cd/or hd


You have a virus most likely. You will need to boot with an antivirus cd & let it scan & repair the virus damage. After this is done you should have control of your system again. Hope this helps.

Windows restarts after logo screen


I have tried the above before, and have only witnessed it work once. I have since never had that work.


Here's your best bet:

Find your OEM (I think even upgrade disks will work too) XP CD and boot your computer with it. You will not be reloading windows or formatting any of the HD's.

Here's a how to for you to read before starting:

It's pretty easy and usually does the trick. You will not loose any data since this is really only replacing the Windows directory. Just remember, SKIP THE FIRST REPAIR OPTION AND DO THE SECOND REPAIR OPTION.

Let me know if that helps.

My dvd/cd-rom canot play or read


Your driver has become corrupted.
Go into device manager, and delete the drive.
Download the most recent driver from the manufacturers website to a location you can find on your PC.
Restart PC.
Let windows recognize the new hardware, and point it to the file you just downloaded when it askes for driver.

Thank you for using FixYa - A FiXyA rating is appreciated!!

Involuntary right click


Assuming this happens when you roll the trackball and don't click right? Seen this so many times.
Could be caused by:

IF Software Related:
Virus or Spyware taking focus of screen and cursor
Keylogger taking control of cursor
Other software running in background that is controlling screen refresh and cursor control.
Confused Drivers within Windows.

IF Hardware Related:
Sticky Right Click button

Fix: Process of elimination unfortunately. Remove all mouse hardware from Device Manager and setpoint. Start from scratch. (FYI: mouse won't work right at first reboot.. give it a sec to reinstall windows drivers operation will return to normal)

Windows XP Pro installed but computer boots to Home Edition


It sure is possible.
I would take it back to them and demand that WINXP Pro is put back in there and it boot correctly
They saved about 50 bucks putting in WINXP Home.

Sounds like a bunch of rookies trying to pull a fast one.
