If you go into the mouse properties and set it to use only the pad and the buttons, not the "stick" (the little eraser-head knob in the center) it should fix the problem.

I can use my left and right buttons and the curser is not moving


There may be a "touchpad lock" button on your laptop. Check to make sure that it is not enabled as this would cause the touchpad to not work.

If you still cannot get it to work, try plugging in a USB mouse and restart your computer, which should re-enable it or just power cycle the laptop.

If it still does not return to normal, your laptop's touch panel may be broken. An easy fix is to get a wireless mouse.

    I have a HP pavillion DV6-1250us Windows vista home premium and i cannot get my mouse to scroll up or down? how do i fix this?


    To move the pointer, slide your finger across the TouchPad surface in the direction you want the pointer to go. Use the TouchPad buttons like the corresponding buttons on an external mouse. To scroll up and down using the TouchPad vertical scroll zone (right edge of the touchpad), slide your finger up or down over the lines.

    NOTE: If you are using the TouchPad to move the pointer, you must lift your finger off the TouchPad
    before moving it to the scroll zone.

    My cursor will not move on my laptop screen


    Hello,

    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
