Why toshiba satellite pro C50-B series curser freeze


When the curser freezes, first press the windows button to see if the entire computer is frozen. The windows button is in the lower left of the keyboard near Crtl and Alt buttons. If the computer is still working, then i would start with the software that is running the mouse. I think Toshiba has their own proprietary software that runs their mouse pads. Try to update the software through Toshiba's website. If that does not work, i would try updating the driver for the mouse. If that does not work, you may want to contact Toshiba for more detailed assistance.

I bought Compaq Presario CQ56 couple of days back and the mouse from touchpad keeps freezing and do not move. But USB wireless mouse works well even when the pad one is not. Could you please help?


a machine that new I would defiantly take it back and have it either fixed or replace, time is on your side i would take advantage of the manufacture warranty. i would also look on the keyboard see if there is a mouse locking feature, its normally the picture of a mouse on one of your function keys, press function and the key with the mouse icon on it and that may take care of it.

How to unlock the key pad on a dell latitude D600 laptop


Hi. Please do troubleshooting steps below:

1. Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.

2. Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.

3. Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.

4. Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.

Have a good one!

    Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is


    If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

    If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.

    How can I unlock the keyboard and mouse on a acer aspire 300


    Try starting the computer in safe mode by pressing the F8 key repeatedly on boot. The start up menu will appear. Chosse safe mode and run an antivirus and antispyware program in safe mode. Your system is freezing and that is why your keyboard is not working. You should find that the keyboard and mouse will work properly while you are in safe mode. I suspect that something is stealing your available resources when you start in regular mode.

    My toshiba laptop cursor doesnot move when i touch the tray pad


    Hi!

    I had the same problem after my fat cat sat on my keyboard. This is how I fixed it. At the top of the keyboard there is a F9 key. If you look closely at this key, it also has two pictures of the mouse pad. This key is a toggle that turns the mouse pad on and off. Down near the lower left corner of the keyboard is a key marked FN. Hold down the FN key and press the F9 key. That will turn the mouse pad back on.
