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.

'mouse' will not work


Hi there Linwood
When you say mouse are you talking about the trackpad on the ibook? You can do a forced restart on the ibook by holding down the start key until the ibook restarts of course you will lose any changes that you have made to any documents you have open. However, by holding down the cmd key and the tab key together you can go a particular program by using the arrow keys, once in the program and the changed document that you have open by pressing down the cmd key and the s key together will save the changes. DO THIS BEFORE DOING THE FORCED RESTART.

Hope this helps.

Wont load windows...just a blue screen with the mouse icon. Alt-f10 doesnt work at the acer screen


Windows is probably getting stuck on start-up and this is likely due to a driver problem. The presence of a blue screen with the mouse pointer icon on it has a description called BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death). BSOD was common in earlier Windows versions as they were not robust enough to withstand misbehaving applications. Current Windows better isolate applications so that BSOD does not occur but it can still happen during the start up process. My suggestion is that you should try running Safe Mode then do a System Restore to an earlier date when the system used to start properly. Strongly suggest that you have the system plugged into its AC adapter before doing this. The following is based on Windows XP (you didn't indicate what O.S. you had).
1. do a power-on and press F8 repeatedly to get the Windows Advanced Options Menu
2. use the up-down arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode and press the Enter key
3. on the Windows log-in screen, click your user name icon to log-on
4. on the Desktop window, click the No button to indicate a choice to use System Restore
5. on the Taskbar, click on the iconized System Restore to open the System Restore window
6. click the Next button to get the Select a Restore Point window with the monthly calendar
7. on the calendar, click a bold date then click the Next button
8. on the Confirm Restore Point Selection window, read and if it is OK click the Next button
9. during System Restore, the system will be shut down and restarted. Let this proceed normally.

Aspire 5100 mouse is frozen how to fix problem


Try restarting your computer by pushing the windows button on the bottom of the keyboard on the left side, generally next to the ALT button. use your arrow keys to move over to the shut down button, select restart and restart your computer. Or you can shut down and then push the power button to start up your computer. This should help reset your laptop and unfreeze your mouse.

If this does not work, go to the control panel, again using the windows button and the arrow keys. select mouse, then go thru the tabs on the window to make sure that your mouse pad is selected to control your mouse.

If you found this information helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback.

Thank You,
