    This 'comment' is for FixYa! So my understanding is; -10 is {subtracted} for "Not Helpful: Solutions!" But! When the "Solution is Very Helpful! = 5 or < LESS!" ? Is this "Correct"!? I have another ?Question? Do a number between a (100 to 1000) people respond quicker, and more to "Solution that do not help!" In comparison to the "Solutons that do?"

In some Compaq, there is a switch on top of it. Try to press that button and check if it will work.

How di make my mouse work


usb mouse or mouse bad ?

Look at the type of mouse you have.

To date, there are three types of mice: the USB mouse, the PS/2 mouse and the Bluetooth mouse.


USB mice connect with a USB adapter, which has a rectangular shape. Conversely, the PS/2 mouse uses a PS/2 adapter, which is round.


Finally, there's the Bluetooth mouse, which has no external adapters.

Plug the mouse into your machine.


Now, how you do this will depend on the mouse you're using.

With a USB mouse, simply plug your device into your laptop's USB adapter, which will also be rectangular in shape.


For PS/2 mice, you'll need to plug it into a PS/2 adapter. Plug your mouse into the PS/2 end then plug the other end into your laptop's USB adapter.

And for Bluetooth mice, no plugging is required.

Install the mouse drivers.


If your mouse is not plug-and-play, you're going to need to install its drivers. To do this, insert the CD or diskette that came with your device.

The installation should occur automatically.


Pair your mouse, if using a Bluetooth mouse.

At this stage, non-Bluetooth mice are ready to be used.


However, if you are installing a Bluetooth mouse, you must perform one additional step: pairing it to your machine.


To achieve this, use your laptop's touchpad and right-click on your Windows screen. Select the option "Pair Device." From there, follow the on-screen instructions to sync your mouse with yourcomputer.



Place your mouse onto a mouse pad. Before using your mouse, you need to place it onto a mouse pad.

This should be done for all types of mice, whether they are wireless or trackball.

Otherwise, movement will be difficult



mouse pad


Examine your mouse pad.

Dirt and grime can affect performance and slow down mouse sensitivity, if not shut it down altogether.


Make sure the surface of the track pad is clean and that there is nothing that has managed to get beneath it or around any trackball buttons that could affect the pressing and depressing of the component.


Check to see if your mouse pad has been turned off.

If the Fn (Function) button at the bottom left of the keyboard is pressed in conjunction with some other key on the keyboard it can result in the disabling of the mouse pad.


To enable your mouse pad on a Windows PC go to the Control Menu.

Under the Printers and Other Hardware option, click on Mouse.

Then, click on the tab on the top of the pop-up menu that says Device Settings.

The touch pad for your computer should come up as a selectable option. Click on it and you will see the option to enable your device, then click OK. If this does not work,


Check the manufacturer of your laptop (for example, Toshiba) and then navigate to their official website. Find an area for Software and Drivers, and move on to that area.


Enter your laptop number (check your documentation/manuals and/or the bottom of the computer) and look through the drivers that are presented as a result of this number input.


It could be that your mouse pad simply needs updated drivers. Find the driver that corresponds to your computer and mouse pad (for example, most Acer laptops use a Synaptics touch pad).


Then, click on download.

Once the drivers have downloaded, double click them to ensure they install, restart your laptop, and your mouse pad should be working again.


hope this helps

My logitech mouse only works on my touchpad


There are some mouse's which are no-power.
Those mouse's are powered through electromagnetic field generated by the mose-pad.
This kind of mouse-pad have a coil inserted and some electronic circuitry inside pad. This is the way to power this kind mouse.

Hope this will help you...

Mouse not working on mouse pad anymore after it showed that batteries are low, of course i changed the batteries


I'm assuming it's an optical mouse, but a few details are lacking in your post. Is it the same mouse pad that you used before you changed your batteries? Is your mouse pad shiny? Because that will affect the performance of an optical mouse. And really, and optical mouse doesn't need a mouse pad. If it works OFF of the mouse pad, just get rid of the pad.

Lenovo n500 laptop ... mouse pad not working


The mouse pad maybe faulty or the ribbon cable from the mouse pad to the motherboard may not be properly connected. Reseat this cable.
You can connect an USB optical mouse to the laptop. I prefer you use a USB mouse all the time over the mouse pad.

Microsoft Wireless Optical MOuse


I've noted that certain mousepads do cause problems- it seems to be with the graphics on the pad- reflective/light/dark areas on the pad cause the different movement patterns. I'd guess a pad with a dull non-reflective & uniform color might be best.
