How do I unlock my cursor on my laptop when the yellow light on the mouse pad is not on?

Do you have a micro USB device plugged in. Some touch pads automatically disable if you plug in any type of USB mouse device. You can also go into the device manager and uninstall the pad (do not use the delete/remove drivers option), then reboot. Windows will reinstall the device, and sometimes that fixes issues. Or do like it do and use a wireless mouse. I hate those touch pads anyway. ;-)

How do I get the mouse to mouse the mouse cursor

the battery in the mouse makes the red light come on, not the operating system.
Look in Device manager,find the mouse, uninstall the drivers, scan for new devices, re-install the drivers.
Otherwise look for new drivers on manufacturers site.

My cursor does not show up on my gateway laptop

Please follow these instructions to resolve the problem.

Click on the start button, then select Device manager. Check and see if your mouse and touchpad are listed under Asus Sonic Master"Mice and Other Pointing Devices, If your mouse is not listed in Device Manager, you need to Reinstall the mouse Drivers. If they are listed but are have a yellow or red mark beside them, then try right clicking on the mouse listed and selecting disable then enable it after a few seconds by right clicking on it again. If that does not help, Reinstall the Mouse drivers. If that fails then the mouse if faulty.

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
