Try using the cursor (arrow keys). If they work, try cleaning the mouse ball, unscrews from the underneath, or change the mouse if optical.

Cursor problem,Automatic deleting problem


it sounds like your mouse is highlighting your text automatically. try disabling the trackpad and using a wireless mouse, if that solves your problem then you can adjust the trackpad settings to shut off automatically while you're typing.

I have a Toshiba LapTop Windows 7 My granddaughter pushed keys and now i can't get the cursor to move. I have tried shutting down and it is still frozen in the middle .


Are you using the trackpad to manipulate the cursor, or are you using an external mouse?

If you're using the trackpad, it may be as simple as using the Fn keys and the corresponding F keys at the top of the keyboard to enable the trackpad feature again. If that doesn't work, try plugging in an external mouse via USB port to see if that works.
If you're using an external mouse, then try to see if the cursor moves while using the trackpad.

Hopefully one of these options will give you control back over your cursor again.

The curser is stuck in the middle of the screen. I move my finger over the pad and it will not move. I have restarted 3 times to no avail.


Is there a button near the trackpad that might be lit up in red or another color? On some laptops, there is an option to turn off the trackpad by pushing a button. Commonly, its right above it. An example is in this picture in the upper right corner:

If there is no button, try connecting a USB mouse and see if you can make it work that way. If so, you may have a hardware or driver issue. You can download drivers from the manufactures site.

Cursor stuck in the middle of screen vista operating system


What are you using? a laptop or a PC?

If you are using a PC then check that the mouse is connected properly to the slot. Also check the ball inside the mouse, it happens sometimes when its dirty, clean the ball inside the mouse and also inside the mouse(use a small cloth).

If you mouse is wireless then check the battery in your mouse. It might run out of charge. Also check the button which is used to turn on the mouse. It might be jammed.

If its a touchpad there is no solution that I can think of other than buying a mouse.

Jumping cursor


This is a really common problem thats not actually a problem.
Go to trackpad settings and make sure tap to click is off.
Most laptops allow you to tap the track pad to act as a mouse button, try it go to an icon tap the trackpad youll see that the icon highlights as if you are actually left clicking.
When your typing the trackpad senses your arm or wrist occasionaly and thinks your tapping the mouse, thus moving the cursor.
So go into trackpad settings and turn off tap to click.

If you have a spare USB mouse, you might try plugging it in to the laptop. Then go to your control panel. Go to your mouse settings, and be sure that your settings are correct for the touchpad.

Is this a new (to you) computer, or have you had this a while, and then it happened all of a sudden?

When you plug in the USB mouse, it may take a few seconds to recognize the mouse.

Cursor stuck in middle of screen


If you are using an external mouse, unplug it and see if it will go with the pad.If it works with the pad then its the exteranal mouse.
If you are using the pad you may have to replace the pad or recalibrate it using the pointer device, you can use the tab key to go through to the start menu then use the arrow keys to go to control panel.
Hope this helps
