When you use an external mouse ensure you turn of the touch pad, it may be getting confused and acting erratic, this may be disabled automatically when you installed the other mouse ,,also ensure when using the touch pad that only one finger is touching it ,to turn it back on can be as simple as pressing the button near the touch pad,the light should come on ,or go into control panel double click on the mouse icon and turn the touch pad on (accupointer).
good luck

I bought my HP Pavilion dv5 about 3 months ago. On the keypad you have to forcefully push it down if you don't use it within a period of time and the mouse pointer works after that. I was wondering if I...


I have an HP dv5 as well, for about 2 years now. After about a year, I started having problems with the mouse keypad. The left button would work intermittently. I eventually figured out that these mouse buttons aren't designed for heavy use. It's best to use an external mouse. I ended up buying a replacement part off of eBay and installing it (which was a major pain--you have to take apart most of the laptop to get it installed). I'm not sure if the problem you have is related. Was there any impact to the laptop at all that might have loosened something up inside?

Mouse pointer drfts to the right side of the screen. I have a touch pad and a mouse button on the keyboard. Even when I connected my usb mouse that pointer drifts as well. I'm not able to control the mouse...


see if your touchpad settings have a setting that controls the sensitivity on the area around the touchpad where you rest your hands on the laptop. I forget what it's called, but most laptops have a setting to control that, so when you rest your hands on the laptop it doesn't affect mouse movement. When you rest your hands, if the sesitivity is too high, the mouse pointer will move when you place your hands to rest on that area.

Pointer on laptop jumps to a different line while typing.


This may be caused by weak batteries, or interference by some nearby appliance (the worst case is another wireless mouse, of course: happened all the time in an office with six identical workstations, even to the two that were beyond a wall. But also wireless - not cellular - phones may interfere). Also the positions of receiver and mouse may play a part. Once sure the batteries work, try placing the receiver and mouse in different positions and see if it helps.
Otherwise, the receiver antenna could be defective.

Hello, I just received a used Toshiba tecra 9000 laptop and it is missing the "mouse" and I need a part number so I may buy one.


Since the Tecra 9000's mouse is actually the Accupoint that's located within the keyboard, it cannot possible be missing the mouse (unless it's missing the keyboard).
Unless you're missing the Accupoint cap. Only place to order them is from Toshiba Support.

Drfting cursor


This is a well known occurance with laptops and is not something you can fix. Occasionally the manufacturer will release a patch to try and help, but this is very rare.

They are called 'mouse nipples'. Also known as: TrackPoint; PointStick; NX Point; Pointing Stick; Stick Pointer; PointStick; QuickPoint; Track Stick; AccuPoint; FineTrack

At the moment you can buy them on Ebay

Item number: 130216827092 Cost £2.40 for 6, seems they are a standard fit but not sure so could be an idea to email the seller first.

TMOUSE (01) error - Win 98 bootup


Try booting using the step-by-step confirmation instead of safe mode. Skip loading the mouse driver that is causing the error. You won't have a mouse when you get booted up but you can use keyboard commands to navigate everything while you try to reload drivers.
