Question about Computers & Internet

The cursor on my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop is stuck in the middle of the screen. I have tried switching on and off .Internet forums suggest various solutions but these involve moving the cursor eg to uninstall a windows update. This is impossible if the cursor is stuck! I can right-click on the mouse but that's all and the cursor is still stuck. Thanks very much! David.

    Many thanks! That certainly works but without the USB mouse the cursor is still stuck. My wife uses the laptop and as she is disabled it's difficult for her to handle the additional mouse.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Regards, David.

Hi David,

Try hooking up a USB mouse and you'll have control once again. Sounds like you can fix the issue from there ;)

    reboot the computer with the usb mouse attached, go into the Device manager and uninstall the trackpad drivers, restart the computer with no usb mouse. What happens?

The laptop's touch pad might be disabled in the operating system. In order to guide you through the steps to check this setting, I need to know what version of Windows operating system is installed on your computer.

This indicates hard drive issues or the windows files are corrupted. If you have a backup recovery disc, try and install the operational system, if no luck! have the hardware tested to see if you require a replacement hard drive.

Hi lewis haywar,

Try to replace the LCD inverter in your laptop. Most common issues on LCD are due to failing LCD inverter. It fails more often than LCD cable or LCD backlight does.

Please let me know if this solution helped to resolve your issue.

My Dell Inspiron 1545 will not load windows. The screen is lit but it is blank. I have taken out the battery and reinserted. What else should I do?


Is the screen black with the cursor blinking at the top left?
I have a suspicion that the coin sized battery is dead.Go to www.dell.com and get a service manual, replace the coin battery (Lithium battery). Put it all back together and it should work.

My cursor on my Dell inspiron 1525 laptop is stuck in the middle of my screen the touch pad isn't working either I was wondering how i could fix this


Try an external mouse. You might have to turn off the touchpad in BIOS (F2 key on boot will get you into setup). Look for Mouse/Touchpad under 'Post Behavior' or perhaps elsewhere (differently displayed in various BIOS setups).

Dell Inspiron 1545 Broken Screen?


The LCD is definitely shattered, looks like pressure was applied from the back of the screen (Pressed on, laid on etc) and the LCD will need to be replaced.
