After restarting my computer the cursor stopped responding to the mouse.


You're probably running Windows, and that's a common problem, and usually very easy to fix. If you are using a wireless mouse, remove the USB receiver, wait 10 - 20 seconds and put it back in. If that doesn't work, remove USB rec. , shut off mouse and go through a restart. Try restarting with them removed, if it doesn't work, try restart with them in and turned on. You can use keyboard commands to do this next part If that doesn't work, go into the Control Panel, system, device manager, mouse, right click ( lined square to right of space bar ) then properties, reset to default - The windows symbol beside space bar is the start menu, the arrows control scrolling through options or moving the page, TAB changes what the computer is focused on, ALT and F4 closes whatever program you're focused on - pressing it twice will cause a restart. And if your comp ever jams up, press CTRL, ALT and DELETE at the same time, opens task manager and unjams,,, usually. Hope some of that helped. Grimm

1. The Mouse o There are two examples of a computer freezing up. One is when a single program on the computer is frozen, while the other is when the entire system freezes up. To determine which type of problem a computer is experiencing, attempt to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse pointer is visible and moves, the issue is with a single program. To determine which program is frozen, bring up the Windows Task Manager. This can be done by right clicking a blank area of the taskbar and selecting "Task Manager," or by pressing the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" and selecting "Task Manager". The program or programs that are frozen will show as "Not Responding" on the Applications tab of the Task Manager. Click the frozen program and click "End Task" to close it. Visit the program's website for specific troubleshooting tips if the program continues to freeze. If the mouse pointer is stationary on the computer screen, the entire system is frozen.
Unfreezing a Frozen Computer o If the entire system freezes up, it will need to be rebooted. To do so, hold down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys. While holding both keys down, press the "Delete" key twice. This should shut down the system and automatically restart it. If the computer does not respond, try the keyboard shortcut once more. If it remains frozen and does not reboot, you will need to perform a hard shut down. This simply means pressing and holding down the power button until the computer completely shuts down. Once it has shut down, leave it off for a few minutes and then turn the power on once more.
Continuous Freezing o A frozen computer might be a one-time occurrence, or it could be the sign of a more serious problem. If the computer continues to freeze up, there are several items that should be checked out. The first step to take is looking at any recently installed software. Programs such as freeware or shareware often contain malware that can damage the system. Even reputable software can contain a damaged file. Uninstall recently added programs and determine if that was the cause of the computer freezing up. To uninstall a program, go to the Control Panel from the Start Menu. Select "Add/Remove Programs" in Windows XP or earlier, or "Programs and Features" in Windows Vista. In the list of installed programs, select the one to be removed and click "Uninstall." Follow any prompts and restart the computer when the process is complete. Next, update and run both the antivirus program and spyware removal program installed on the computer, or use the link provided in resources. Check the Windows website and download any updates.
System Tools Finally, you will want to check the available space on the computer's hard drive and use the built-in error checking and cleaning tools. Go to "My Computer," right click "Local Disk (C:)" and click "Properties." On the "General" tab, make sure there is sufficient free space. The "Disk Cleanup" tool will free more space by deleting unnecessary files. Click the "Disk Cleanup" button to run the tool. On the "Tools" tab there are more tools that can solve the problems causing a computer to freeze up. The Error Checking Tool finds and corrects hard disk errors and the Defragmentation tool will reorganize system files, helping the computer run better.

How can i make my cursor respond using the inbuilt touch . it stopped and i have to use mouse


You have to reload the software and the drivers for the touch pad. Often the name of the drivers and the program that runs the touch screen may not seem apparent. If you have the disks that came with the computer, start with the drivers and utilities disk and re-install all driver files. That should get the hardware listed. you should also check your device manager (start button, right click computer, click properties, click on hardware tab and then click on device manager) for any yellow or red icons. The device manager will show you on a tree, all the hardware working on your computer.

Frozen cursor. How do I release it?


Ctrl-Alt-Del ...and then use the arrow keys and go all the way to the bottom and select Task Manager...and hit enter. When the task manager opens, look for a program that says "not responding" ...and select it, and click "end task" ...if you don't find anything under programs, click the next tab at the top and go to "processes" ...sort the processes by the ones that are using the most of the processor by clicking on the CPU column twice until the one using the most resources are at the top. If you see a process that is not a windows essential process using up all the resources, select it, and click "end task" see it that helps.

Adobe collection seems to be frozen


You need to be more specific about your problem. "Frozen" does not adequately explain the problem.
If your program is "locked up" or "not responding" try the following:
Press and hold Ctrl+Alt+Del to open your Task Manager. Then, under the Applications tab, click on your the name of your Adobe program that is running. Then click the End Task button.
If that doesn't work, then you can try to restart you computer.

Cursor freezes or is eratic


I believe this would be caused by a couple of things. The first, and most likely is probobly that it needs a driver update. If this is not the case, go to computer properties(Right click 'My Computer', then hardware (if xp) then device manager. Go to pointing devices and uninstall the mouse driver.

Yes, you will be unable to control ur laptop. Simply turn off and then the computer will recognise the maouse/mousepad and install the driver.

The second problem could be to do with a nasty little bug out there thats causes both your curser and/or keyboard to act erraticly.

Frozen touchpad


I followed the advice of pressing the FN and F7 keys at the same time. It didn't work when the program was fully loaded, but I rebooted and tried again during the rebooting and it worked. I had the frozen cursor on the Travel Mate (Acer) also.
