Your keyboard USB cord has probably become loose. Try reseating the cable into another USB port, or just reseating it if the keyboard uses a keyboard cord.
If this doesn't work, try a different keyboard (if you have another one around the house).
You may have either a bad USB port, dirty port, or bad keyboard.

Laptop cursor not working


Hi,

Lets see, there could several issues, however the most common is a faulty or missing driver. Depending on the specifications of your mouse (Cursor) you can search for a driver in google by entering your make and model or if it is a mouse that is on the computer (not external), search using the Laptop make and model followed by "mouse driver".
Good luck and let me know if you require more assistance

I'll move the cursor to one spot on the desktop and it will move itself to another....windows 7


You mean, the cursor is erratic and moving all around here and there?

Decrease the Touchpad Sensitivity...

I see that your Laptop was shipped with Windows Vista and it seems you are using a Retail version of Windows 7. Specially, HP/Compaq Laptops is designed for Retail versions and you can face some device/driver functionality issues. But, you can still try the followings.

As per my knowledge, your Laptop has the Synaptics Toucpad.

To Change the Sensitivity of the Touchpad:
1. Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize > Mouse Pointers . The Mouse Properties settings window will open.

2. Select the Device Settings tab. Select the Synaptics TouchPad device and click Settings. In the Properties for Synaptics TouchPad window, expand the Sensitivity topic.
3. Select the PalmCheck option to adjust the sensitivity (decrease it) of the touchpad to avoid erratic cursor movement caused by accidental touching of the pad during normal typing.

If the Device Setting tab is missing.....

1. Click Start, in the Start search field type Msconfig and press enter.

"System Configuration Utility" box will pop up on the screen.

2. Click the Startup tab.
3. Search for "Syntpenh" entry and select the checkbox beside it.
5. Click OK. Restart the computer. Perform above step.

If you are still not able to perform the steps, update the driver from following link.

Synaptics TouchPad Driver: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp44501-45000/sp44969.exe

Restart the Notebook and check for the problem. It should be resolved now.

This issue could be due to corrupt Touchpad drivers or corrupt Touchpad sensitivity settings or corrupt BIOS settings. To isolate this issue, please perform the steps provided below: 1.
