Little nub (acts like mouse) in keyboard that controls the pointer

The little nub is malfunctioning and sending my pointer to the top or bottom of the screen. Even when I start using my Logitech wireless USB mouse to circumvent using the keyboard nub I still have the problem. Can I disable the nub on the keyboard or do I need to replace the entire keyboard? Be aware that I'm not technically inclined when it comes to doing hardware transplant surgery so would prefer a disable option.

Thanks so much for any help.

    There has to be a way to disable the nub either via software or inside the laptop somewhere, there just has to be *sigh*.

Can I use a Wireless mouse without the USB thing?

No Lena, I am afraid you can't and if you can't find that little USB bit, the mouse is just a paperweight. The mouse sends signals to that little USB thing which is a receiver for the signals from the mouse.

The mouse often has a little storage indent in the bottom of the mouse to store the receiver, so could someone have removed it from the computer stored it for you? On my Logitech mouse, the indent is under the battery cover. It sounds like you have two computers, so check both for the receiver.

No sound on my computer how do i turn it back on with the keyboard

If you hover the mouse pointer over the little speaker in the bottom right corner and right click you can turn it on from there. Or open the control panel and look in the Audio section you can turn the sound on from there. With out seeing your keyboard I can only suggest you look for a key with a little speaker with a line through it. you may also need to press the "Fn" key or the "Alt" key at the same time.

After you remove main cover face mouse right side up, wheel towards you. On end away from you there are two little nubs that stick up. Between them is a little indent where you just use a fingernail to pull up on battery holder-do not force as it should pop up very easily.

I purchased a Verbatim 96902 optical nano mouse and can't get it to respond correctly. It moves slow if at all. Any thoughts?

You could try changer your mouses speed settings.
To do this go to Start>Control Panel> And open Mouse. Then go to the Pointer Options tab and turn up the speed under "Select a pointer speed"
This might be a little different depending on your OS.
If you turn it up and your mouse is still slow try cleaning the lens on the bottom.
If it still does not work, try to return it and get a different one.

Wireless keyboard and optical mouse

Thanks! I fixed the problem by installing a USB mouse and using fn+f9. That unlocked the mouse so I could use the pointer leaving just the keyboard problem. I then tried reconnecting the wireless keyboard (by using the button on the receiver and under the keyboard) Hey Presto!!

Compaq armada m700 has a irratic mouse

go into your control panel and look in the mouse or keyboard Icon, Open it and look at your pointer properties. Set all to Default and see if that gets the mouse back and working right, If that still don't work try an external mouse for a desktop and see if it still acts erratic, If the other mouse don't work right there may be a problem with the hardware that operates the mouse actions. Let me Know if that gets you going in the right direction, Ok Thanks
