    Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, I had already tried this and the frozen mouse cursor is still in the middle of the screen and non responsive. Any other suggestions would be helpful.

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.

How do I fix a frozen cursor on dell inspiron?


make sure batteries have power and have secure seating
or it might be the usb for wireless mouse or lead connecting to the usb port or even a faulty mouse

if this does not fix the problem

restart you computer tap the f8 key repeatedly to enter safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you an attempt to repair your computer


click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x

right click you will need to update the driver


click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver rollback driver or uninstall also


I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop


then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 arrows then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7


in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar


hope this helps

    Frozen cursor on new emachine laptop


    Before you plan to return make sure you have done some or all of this things first:

    1. Did you reboot after you installed the Enterprise 2007 ?
    2. Did you make sure that if its a USB mouse that it is securely connected to the USB port ?
    3. Were you able to move your mouse without any problem at all before the software installation ?
    4. Have you had this problem before the installation of Enterprise 2007 ?
    5. Have you done all your software and windows updates ?
    6. Will the mouse work when booting into Safe Mode ( pressing F8 during re-boot before Windows Vista loads) If it does then your softwares need to be updated.
    7. Did you check you device manager to see that theres no yellow exclamation anywhere in the Mice and othert pointing devices or under the USB controller section?
    8. Is there a legacy USB port to be activated on your computer BIOS ?

    If the installation caused your mouse to be frozen then try and uninstall the Enterprise 2007 by using your keyboard and tab to the programs uninstall.

    If your mouse still doesn't move after doing all of the above things
    then try another new USB mouse. Sometimes you may have to wait for several seconds (even up to a minute for new usb mouse detection) before the USB mouse cursor will move. If the second new USB mouse still wont work then return it to where you bought it as it could be faulty usb connector
