What to do when my mouse freezes?


First make sure is not the computer frozen, by pressing the Windows key on keyboard, and if the menu comes up then is not frozen. Next, if not frozen move the mouse to another USB port, if frozen restart the computer by pressing and holding power for 5 seconds.

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.

I have an hp pavillion a6500z computer, and recently the keyboard and mouse have stopped working. I have switched out the keyboard and mouse with a different set, and they didn't work either. So...


Hi,
If you are using PS2 port, you can try using usb type keyboard and mouse just to check I/O system.

You can also boot to "Safe Mode" by pressing F8, F10, F2..depending on the brand of pc you are using. If the mouse and keyboard work in Safe Mode, then you are having a software problem. In this case, you can try either of the following options.
- scan for virus, malware or spyware
- obtain windows updates
- reinstall the operating system
- try to do registry editing (it is advisable to back up everything before performing this step, just reinstall the operating system if you are not comfortable of performing this step)

I hope this helps.

I have a hp pavillion dv 9700 i upgraded it with windows 7 and my mouse keeps jumping around all over while im typing. It did do this before when i had vista and I think that i downloaded a driver to fix...


Hi,
I believe I can help in what you are experiencing with your jumping cursor concern. you mentioned that you downloaded a driver, try downloading touch freeze, google it it will give you links where to download it and it is free, this should fix your jumping cursor issue

any of the links will lead you to the downloads page for the application.
once downloaded this is what you should see on your task bar, see image below. an icon of a touchpad with a check mark on it.

I have a Medion wireless mouse and the mouse pointer keeps freezing intermittently. The operating system is windows vista home premium.


Make sure the mouse batteries are fully charged.

Also make sure the mouse is not too far away from the base / cradle and there is nothing blocking the sensor on the front of the mouse cradle.

Make sure all the cables are fully inserted. Check both ends of the power adapter plug going into the back of the mouse cradle and the plugs leading to the back of the computer.

Try cleaning the little red LED light under the mouse with a QTip to remove any dust.

Finally try using a different mouse pad. Some work better than others with certain brands of wireless mice.

Also make sure there is not another wireless mouse being used in close proximity. The two can often interfere with each other.

Good luck and please comment back and RATE if this was helpful.

Gateway NV52 on AMD-64, running vista home premium. The


Not sure about the blue, but it sounds like the black screen problem others are having all over then net. Here was my two cents on it so far....

There is a very good chance if you are using a external mouse instead of the touch pad, that is what is causing it. Problem is, I am still looking into why and do not know of a fix yet.

I have the very same laptop and mine worked just fine with a external mouse up until I formated it. Now just like the many other owners, my mouse freezes and and then seconds later the screen goes black. It doesn't however when the external mouse in not pluged in.

I would have to assume this is due to something not being installed right during the windows installation. As I said, mine worked fine until the format. Until I find out what is causing this error to happen, my best advise is not to use a mouse, just use the touch pad.

It's kind of a pain lol, I had gotten so use to the mouse. I kept reaching for it even after I unplugged it. I had to take it off my desk so I would use the touch pad lol.

Pointer locks up on the desk top after a power outage


Tried a different mouse? Maybe the power outage fried it. pc2 mouse? If it the wirring is fried or the mother board for the mouse is fried then you could purchase a USB mouse if you have an available port.  Finally download the mouse driver and reload it first.   Any more questions please ask. Thanks

.the mouse moves randomly across


Hi,
If mouse is moving randomly across the screen then you may have to change the mouse or the mouse pad. If system freezes automatically that is your software problem. Please install a fresh copy of windows xp or vista whatever. Hopefully it should work . thank you.......
