Unable to move cursor on lenovo x61


Are you trying to move the cursor with the trackpoint, a usb mouse, or the pen? Have you tried restarting your computer? Restarting would likely solve the problem. If you can't move the cursor to the start menu, you can open the start menu with the windows key, use the arrow keys to navigate to the power options. Use enter to select the power options and shut down or restart the computer. If this does not work, press and hold the power button for 5 or 10 seconds to force the computer to shut down.

What happened before this occurred? Did you install any programs or updates recently, or change any settings on your computer?

You can't start the computer remotely. The computer can start remotely if the BIOS is set to "allow Network devices to start computer" or similar actions. When the computer is booting up, usually you'll see an option to press F1, F2, Del, or another key to enter the BIOS. Make sure the settings are saved as you exit.

If the computer is in Sleep mode, just moving the mouse, or pressing a key could wake it. In that case, lock the cat out of the computer room.

Start-up and shut down problems, When starting up it says, press f1 to continue, f2 to run set-up.... F1 works but I am getting tired of doing this. Now when the computer starts, it stops at...


Hi names Rui,


For your problem the computer may display a prompt to press F1/F2 or any other key to enter setup each time the computer boots as a reminder on how to enter CMOS. However, if the computer asks to press F1/F2 (or another key) to enter setup and does not continue, this may be caused by any of the below reasons.

  1. New hardware has been recently installed.
  2. Error or confliction with settings in CMOS.
  3. CMOS battery is bad or failing.
Solution:

New hardware has been recently installed

If new hardware has been recently installed into the computer, it is likely that you are receiving the prompt "Press F1 or F2 to enter setup" because CMOS needs to verify that the new detected hardware is properly being setup in CMOS. Enter CMOS setup and save the settings and exit. If you continue to get errors continue to the next step.


Error or confliction with settings in CMOS

If no new hardware has been added or you continue to get this prompt verify no error or conflictions exist in CMOS. Press the key to enter setup and verify that all settings are correct.

If your time and date are not set correctly, your battery is more than likely bad. Try setting the correct time and date, save the settings and then reboot. If after turning off the computer the time and date get reset again replace the battery.

If the time and date are correct and everything else appears to be correct try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults.


CMOS battery is bad or failing

If you continue to receive the prompt to enter setup each time the computer boots up and you have attempted to follow the above suggestions, your CMOS battery is bad. We recommended that the CMOS battery be replaced.


hope this will help you.

Dell 4700 bios a06 2.8 ghz 64 bit bus=800mhz pentium 4 2.8 ghz microsoft xp pak 2 moterboard light= green abcd lights=green reset bios to factory settings computer keep shutting down.. windows dialog box...


You have a rootkit virus, the only answer is reformat the drive and start fresh, sorry.
After a fresh install is done immediately install service(can be downloaded free from microsoft.com) pack 3, because sp2 is vulnerable to a host of trouble.

My computer won't start up right


press F1, when it boots you are going to have to go down to the date and time, and click on it then you will need to put in the correct day date and time. If pressing f2 it will take you into the bios, and you can set it from there prior to booting, unless you know what you are doing, stay away from the bios, it can really screw up your computer. Good luck and Peace,Gym

Mouse Cursor Frozen


Try putting the computer into safe mode by shutting down the computer. Turn the computer back on. At beginning of the boot process press and hold the f8 button and select safe mode from the menu.

When the safe mode is done booting up, try moving the mouse around. If it works, restart the the computer under normal Windows startup procedures.

Suddenly the cursor moves back to a previous line and continues typing making a joke of what I'pingm typing (see it just did it)


make sure the mouse cursor is further down the page from where you are typing. If your text continues over the arrow of the cursor and any static electricity or touch is detected by the glide pad of a laptop or S.E. from a mouse it will move the text cursor to where the mouse cursor is.

This is a continual problem with sensitive computers.

sorry there is no permanent "FIX"
