If mouse stops working shortly after booting up, sounds like driver conflicts, reboot and enter Safe Mode (normally press F8 on startup, but key may vary between systems) Drivers can normally not conflict with eachother in Safe Mode, Next enter Device Manager through the control panel and find your tochpad or mouse drivers, typically they will be marked with a yellow warning triangle if they are improperly configured or conflicted, rightclick and select uninstall, scan for hardware changes and let it automatically reinstall the touchpad or mouse drivers.

If driver still not working, there may be old, hidden drivers, some systems may be able to show these by pressing view->show hidden drivers in the device manager, older systems typically windows XP will have to run cmd.exe and type in the following lines to show the 'ghost' drivers:
SET DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1
DEVMGMT.MSC
this will start up device manager with added parameter, you must still enable 'show hidden devices'.

Note: it is pretty safe to uninstall drivers under the sections:
Keyboards
Mice and other pointing devices
Monitors
Network Adapters
Sound, Video and Game controllers
Storage Volumes
Universal Serial Bus controllers

However, understand the risks of uninstalling and editing system components, if you do not have a way to restore your system to factory settings, or reinstall your system completely, of if you have important information stored on the computer, you should thread extra carefull- hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

My computer comes on opens windows all looks ok as soon as i touch the cursor, nothing responds,


Make sure that the track-pad (mouse-pad) is not disabled. There should be a button located above the track-pad that allows you to disable or enable the track-pad. If not, I would use a USB mouse and then go into the Control Panel, mouse and change settings there to enable the track-pad.

My touchpad mouse won't work. it does not respond


If you are using XP, check your mouse settings under Control Panel. Make sure that your Touch Pad is enabled. If it is but it still won't work, have a mouse plugged into a USB port that will work correctly. Then download the latest driver from the Acer site for your touchpad. Uninstall the driver that is currently being used by your system. Then install the updated driver that you downloaded. This should allow you to use your Touch Pad. If not, you may have to take your laptop in for servicing.

Do you unlock your mouse on a dell xps m1530


There is no way to check the touchpad settings. Either she has removed the touch pad driver, or she has changed the settings. See if you can find the dell touch pad icon on your system tray(circled in red in the picture below)

If you cant then connect an external mouse and download the driver from the link below
Click here
If you can see the touch pad icon in the system tray then you just need to change the settings. I have set mine at correct levels and posted a screenshot below

Set them to the levels shown above and you should be fine.
Let me know if you need more help.

Sai.
