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

Go in to your control panel and make sure the setting for the touch pad is turned to on depending on the software on your computer it may need to have the mouse option turned off as well hope this helps....

Unable to move cursor on lenovo x61


Are you trying to move the cursor with the trackpoint, a usb mouse, or the pen? Have you tried restarting your computer? Restarting would likely solve the problem. If you can't move the cursor to the start menu, you can open the start menu with the windows key, use the arrow keys to navigate to the power options. Use enter to select the power options and shut down or restart the computer. If this does not work, press and hold the power button for 5 or 10 seconds to force the computer to shut down.

What happened before this occurred? Did you install any programs or updates recently, or change any settings on your computer?

I have seen the same problem with a Dell computer that was caused by the driver for the touch pad. Suggest you go to the vendor web site and see if they have a new driver. If you have the latest go to an older driver, sometimes a new driver may have a bug.

Cannot move cursor by touchpad. Can't shut it down either, since I can't go to start menu.


Try the following: 1. Check if the on/off button on your touch pad is turned on. 2. Restart the computer by pressing ALT+F4 until you get a shut down screen and then using arrow keys to scroll to restart. 3. If still not working, try reinstalling your touch pad drivers from the disk you got with your computer (connect an external mouse to do so, if not introduced to keyboard shortcuts). Good luck and please rate if something helps.

After using for sometime, scroll pad not working well. Cursor stops at any place, vibrating without touching the pad and become impossible to move the cursor in all directions. Then PC has to be shut down...


First Try doing the same in the safemode


Start the Computer with Press F8 key (keep on hitting it before window screen appear)

It will show you the windows advance option

Login to the user account

Check the Scroll pad if its working fine then there is some problems with software - need update

Cursor on my keypad jumps around


If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:

1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.

2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.

a. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.

b. Click Printers and Other Hardware.

c. Click Mouse.

d. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab.

e. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.

f. Click OK.

g. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.

3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.

4. After connecting an external mouse, uninstall the touchpad driver from the Device manager listed under the "mice and other pointing devices" category and restart the Computer.

5. Download the Touchpad driver compatible to the Operating System installed on the Computer from the manufacturer's site and install it after restarting the Computer.


Good luck!!!!!!!!!!

Touch pad failed.


Look along the top of the keyboard for an "f key" that shows a "touch pad" icon, IF you see it, press the "function key" (along the bottom of the keyboard) PLUS at the same time the "f key" (that you found along the top) and that should "toggle" the touch pad back on....
Also, IF you plug in a USB mouse that will allow you to move the cursor around--but the USB mouse doesn't fix your touch pad problem.
Hope this helps.
