Your touchpad might have a 'lock' button nearby it, to enable or disable its sensitivity. this is usually helpful while typing, so you can disable it so that the when the touchpad gets touched, the mouse won't make any reaction. You can then enable it to work with the mouse. This button is usually either near the top border or near one of the four borders. Alternately, some laptops have a function key for touchpad enable-diable thing. It is usually Fn + F3. The function key (Fn) is near the Ctrl key. The touchpad key, in the in colour of the Fn key will be somewhere in the Function keys.

Try Alt and F4 at same time. This is keyboard command to close a window. Also try TAB and Alt TAB. These switch between windows that are open.

Milk was spilled on the touchpad of my laptop the cursor moves but it won't click


You need to replace the touch pad or you can connect an USB mouse to your laptop and not use the touch pad.

Touch pad not working


Did it work for you before? what has happened since then?some laptops have a way to disable the touch pad so you won't accidentally move the cursor while typing. It may be a switch on the computer itself, or a LED in the corner of the touch pad, or it may be one of the Function keys (does any of them have a symbol of a mouse with a circle and one diagonal line indicating "no mouse") If so, push the fn key plus which ever function key has that symbol beside it.Some laptops automatically disable the touch pad if a USB mouse is plugged in.If none of these is the problem, you may not have a touch pad driver installed. Get a USB mouse to plus in until you get the driver installed. Go to the web page for the manufacturer for the laptop. Search for your model in the support section, and look for drivers. Download the appropriate driver for your touch pad and your version of Windows, and install it.Buying a USB mouse or a wireless mouse may be a valid solution no matter what the problem is if you like a real mouse.

I cannot move the arrow


Perhaps your mouse is not plugged in to the computer. If your mouse is a usb mouse it will have an end of it that looks like this:

It probably isn't blue on the inside though. It's probably silver or black
If your mouse is a ps2 mouse then it will look like this:

If the mouse is a ps2 mouse then when you plug it back in you will need to log off and then log back on to your computer for it to work. To log off you can press the windows key that looks like this:

and then use the tab button to navigate to the log off button and hit enter. Then hit tab until you can select yes and hit enter.

If it is a usb mouse then you can just plug it back in and it will work.

Jumping cursor while using skype messenger or yahoo mail composer


Skype and other Video or Voice over the internet do requires CPU computations heavily. And this is why cursor movements jumps insteads of moves. Those software used more CPU power than the Touchpad.
To prove this is the case, try use Skype Voice call and see how jumpy the cursor is, then try Video Call and compare how jumpy. If Video call jumps a lot more than Voice then this is the case that the CPU is overloaded. Try reduce as much as possible the visual effects of Skype and Windows XP. By the way, software Antivirus and Firewall may also contribute CPU overloading during use of Skype.
Either improve your laptop hardware (add more ram, etc.) or get your XP tuned up to improve performance.

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.

Cursor 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:.
    1. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.
    2. Click Printers and Other Hardware.
    3. Click Mouse.
    4. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab. (Figure 1)
      10583022.gif
      Figure 1: Pointer Speed
    5. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.
    6. Click OK.
    7. 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.
