    ...What do you mean? Is the mouse not working or do you have a USB mousepad of some sort?

My mouse pad is erraatic and jumpy, wont go where ...


If you are using a track ball mouse then service it properly and also remove the ball and clean it

If you are using a optical mouse than change the pad or keep any book under it if again your mouse doesn't work buy a new one

Mouse quit working on my Lap Top it is a Aspire


First of all check whether the touch pad is lock (Fn+F7(?)). If you use an external mouse/ usb mouse, check usb cable connection, as long as you didn't drop it on the floor it should be ok. If the built in touch pad doesn't work, could be caused by ribbon cable connectivity that has dirt or moist. To fix it need to open the upper case

The left click on my eeepc 701 is not working and am unable to drag. thanks.


It sounds like your track pad is dying. This should not be a problem though if you have a USB mouse near by. Just plug the mouse in and it will work. Then navigate to the mouse and trackpad settings in the computer to see if a setting can be changed to get the track pad working again. Otherwise, just buy small USB mouse to carry around with your eeepc.

Emachines laptop e525 mouse pad not working at all so cannot use everything else starting up as normal


Look at the middle cover (above the keyboard). there are two buttons that touch the power switch, the one to the left enables/disables the touchpad. If it shows an orange light it is disabled. Just press it, and be careful not to hit it when turning unit on.

Mouse pad not working


A mouse pad is a thing you put your mouse on....

now what you are talking about is your touchpad.

Check these first:

  • some laptops have a switch that turns off the touch pad (usually a button right on the topside of the touchpad)
  • did you reboot completely? full shutdown, then power on?
  • goto the device manager (with a usb mouse of course) and find the touchpad... delete the device... then reboot again it should try and find the touchpad and ask for the driver, point it to the directory that you have the driver located.
good luck!

The mouse pad is locked. it works when the pc is started up. after the desktop loads , the mouse goes into lock mode.


Hello. For laptops there are several key combinations, FN+F1, F2 One of them disables/enables the mouse pad. Good luck!

I have a toshiba equium laptop and i am having problems with the mouse pad. It works ok when I plug in a mouse but not with the pad


Ok, i think I get what you are saying...correct me if I am wrong.

You have a desktop PC where the mouse will not work while it is on the mousepad?

If that is the case, check this: If it is a optical/laser mouse (a light on the bottom, instead of a ball) make sure your mousepad is not made from a reflective material like plastic. Try a fabric pad.

Hope this helps.
