There might be a problem with the drivers... first try restarting your system, if it does not work , reinstall the driver and that should work fine with you.

Unlock the mouse in dell inspiron m5030


1) Examine your "Function"/"F" keys and look for a touchpad icon. If you find one, hold the "Fn" key and press the touchpad icon button to unlock the touchpad. Move on to Step 2 if your laptop doesn't support this feature.

  • 2) Plug a USB mouse into an open port on your laptop. Click the Windows "Start" button. Click "Control Panel" in Windows XP and double-click "Device Manager." Type "Device" in the search box in Vista and Windows 7 and click "Device Manager" from the results.
  • 3) Click "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the touchpad and select "Enable." Your touchpad is now unlocked.

    My mouse is frozen please help


    try to restart the pc and check if the touchpad will still act on it. If not, try to use an external mouse and check if it works. Otherwise call Dell to possibly repair your touch pad..

    How to unlock the key pad on a dell latitude D600 laptop


    Hi. Please do troubleshooting steps below:

    1. Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.

    2. Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.

    3. Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.

    4. Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.

    Have a good one!

    Check to find out if the problem is software (a corrupt driver - reinstall it) or hardware (trackpad disabled or faulty). In between use a PS2 mouse.

    4. Step 4 Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.
      For desktops, disconnect the keyboard from the desktop. Reconnect after one or two minutes.
    5. Step 5 Reconnect the power adapter or AC cord. Start your computer.
    6. Step 6 If your keyboard is still locked on a Dell desktop, disconnect the keyboard. Restart your computer and reconnect the keyboard after the system boots. Allow your operating system to recognize and reinstall the keyboard.

    Can't login, and mouse freezes


    a few possibilities. try booting into safe mode (by hitting the f8 key BEFORE windows starts). 
    it could be overheating, try dusting out the laptop with a can of air or low-psi air compressor.
    could also be bad or failing ram.
    try the top 2 and let me know.
