    Dear Mr. Faheemsafdar

    Thank you for your suggestion. That's what i did in the meantime that my mouse is not functioning.

    I must have pressed some function keys that resulted to disabling the mouse. I'm hoping that someone would know how to solve this problem.

    Thanks again.

If you want repair this it costs high. I suggest you to buy a "usb optical mouse". Just plug it in to you usb port on your laptop.
I think it better. Contact me again for any suggestion.

Thanks

    I think there are two more steps can be taken.


    1. Try to reset the bios setting.

    2. Restore your operating system ( If you have Windows Xp or Windows 2000) setting with that date when you had freshly installed you drivers.
    If you don't know how to restore contact me again. Hope it works

How can I fix my Dell Laptop that has a yellow caution, codePCI Bus 8,device 0, function 0


I would remove the battery, etc, and then disassemble the keyboard. I would bet the ribbon cable connection from the keyboard/mouse pad is loose or gummed up. The symptoms are of a poor connection causing 'misfire' of the nerves.... Remove the keyboard, clean the ribbon connector, and re-assemble.

My mouse pad left and right buttons stopped working on my HP pavilion. External mouse works OK. Also had a problem with tap function but now working after unchecking button function in settings!


Anytime a device, (keyboard, mouse, USB device) stops working, the very first point of issue is to re-install the drivers. Drivers have been known to inexplicably become corrupt and will malfunction or not function at all. In case such as yours, where the device is built into the hardware itself, it's best to go to Start>Computer, right click Computer, click on Properties, then click on Device Manager. Find the device that is malfunctioning, in your case, the mousepad, and right click on it...then click uninstall. Reboot your system and it will reload the drivers on restart. Nine times out of ten, this will resolve the problem. There is a slim possibility that your mouspad plug has become loose...if that's the case, you will have to remove the keyboard and reseat the plug. Youtube has tons of videos showing how to do this with various laptops.

Mouse didn't detected


Touch pad usb or wireless mouse ?
Laptops use the convenient touchpad and integrated scroll mouse that allow you to use just your finger to navigate Web pages, documents and open files and programs. Just like all other hardware, the laptop's integrated touchpad and mouse can experience errors and problems that cause you to lose functionality for a length of time. Whether the laptop's mouse is not working because of internal errors or conflicts with another device, several "tricks" can work to restore it.

Locate the function "Fn" button on your laptop in the lower left corner of the keyboard. Look in the keyboard's upper row (the F1 through F12 buttons) for an icon of a touchpad or computer mouse. This keyboard button acts as the toggle switch to enable and disable the built-in mouse and touchpad function. Press and hold the "Fn" button together with the mouse icon button. Look for the disable/enable symbol that briefly displays on your screen. Slide your finger over the laptop's mouse and attempt to use it as normal. Press the Windows keyboard key if using Windows 7, type "main.cpl" in the search box and press "Enter." Press the left arrow key to navigate over to the "Device Settings" tab. Press the tab key to reach the "Enable" button in this section. Press "Enter" on your keyboard. Press the tab key to reach the "Disable internal pointing device" check box. Press the space bar to remove the check mark. Put your finger on the touchpad, and move the pointer down to the "Apply" button. Click "Apply" to save the settings. Close the mouse "Properties" box. Press the keyboard "Windows" logo key to open the "Start Menu." Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer" menu. Press the up or down arrow key to highlight "Restart." Press "Enter" to restart your computer and attempt to use the laptop mouse as it should normally function. Open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Add and Remove" or "Uninstall" programs section. Highlight any secondary mouse devices in the list that you have installed for your laptop, such as an external USB mouse. Select the "Uninstall" option to remove any software and settings associated with this secondary mouse. Restart your computer and attempt to use the built-in laptop mouse as normal. Check to see if the mouse is working properly. Press the keyboard's "Windows" button to open the "Start Menu." Press the keyboard's arrow keys, "Enter" button and "Tab" to navigate to and open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Hardware and Sound" section, and press "Enter." Navigate to "Device Manager," and press "Enter" to open it. Find "Mice and other pointing devices from the list" and open its "Properties" dialog box. Select the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver." Allow Windows to search the Internet for drivers and to update them automatically. Restart your computer after the drivers are updated, and use your mouse as normal.

When I try to plug in an external Mouse my Acer Aspire One is asking me to download hidusb.sys from the XP Home Edtion Service Pack 3 CD?


I'll assume your touchpad and built-in mouse are not working, hence your need for the USB mouse. If the touch pad and built-in mouse are working but you find them awkward to use (another reason some users connect USB mice to notebooks), then you might find it easier to briefly persevere and use the touchpad and built-in mouse for only a few seconds just to complete the simple steps outlined below. If not, the keyboard method detailed below is less efficient and more cumbersome but equally effective.
This driver that is being requested is already built-in to Windows. Use the TAB and down or up arrows keys on your keyboard to move the cursor to the button you want to activate -> press the ENTER key to activate the button that the cursor has settled on keys on your Click Next -> No (to alternative search methods) -> search the whole computer for the driver -> next -> finish -> if your USB mouse does not work straight away, press the windows logo key bottom left of your keyboard -> the use the keyboard arrow keys to move once up and then left to the shutdown button -> press ENTER -> use the arrow keys to move the cursor to RESTART -> press ENTER.

KEYS AND MOUSE


Check to make sure your touch pad is not turned off. Regarding the keyboard you need to check to see if you have set the laptop to work off an external keyboard. Check the function keys at the top of the keyboard they are used to turn on and off the keyboard and mouse functions
