Mouse locking/turning off laptop

Sometimes when I start my laptop, the mousepad won't work...the light won't come on, the cursor's frozen in one spot on the screen and no amount of pressing the button will make it work. sometimes I can press the standby button and the light will come on and the mouse will then work...but when it doesn't..how do you turn the laptop off if you can't use the mouse? pressing the power on button only seems to make it hibernate..not turn off :(

On your laptops power management settings, you will probably find an advanced tab. In there you should be able to assign the power button to 'Shutdown', as it is probably 'Hibernate' enabled. The mouse problem is probably your laptops touch pad driver, update drivers from Hewlett Packard site if there are any.

Looking at the keyboard I found a help key combination Fn-F1 which produced a menu listing several hot key combinations. One such combination was Fn-F7 which toggled the touchpad enabled/disabled.

Hey Gigantegenov!

Seems like the program that controls your special keys (volume control) causes your computer to freeze!

I would recommend reinstalling the drivers/application for it. Try this download and let me know what happened: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-31502-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=228&product=435618

I accidentally locked my cursor. I'm in Word. I leaned (unwittingly) on my built-in mousepad, the little light in the NW corner of the "mousepad" went on, and locked the cursor. How do I unlock it?

Whats the model of your laptop, it may have a button combination to unlock the mouse, or even a single button that locks / unlocks it.

You could always plug an external USB mouse into it in the meantime.

Mousepad doesn't work

what does it say in device manager click on mousepad ,click on properties does it s device working ok . in control panel go to input devices /mouse and check if mouse pad is selected to use.

Acer laptop cursor frozen

Have you tried plugging a usb mouse in. If that woks then the ribbon connecting your mousepad might be disconnected from the motherboard.

Cursor appears to be locked, but cordless mouse works

Depending on the model of your computer, there could be a mouse lock. It is usually near the mousepad but might not be. What is the brand and model name?

What does the light indicate above the mouse pad on my HP Mini Netbook? It is red and after I start up the cursor does not respond to commands.

I am niot familiar with this particular model, but based on what i have seen with other HPs, that means your mousepad is locked, similar to the hold function on an ipod.

My mouse does not works properly/ it works slow, cursor makes little jumps, movement not smooth. Laptop samsung R40

Are you using it on a mousepad? If not, that is probably why you are getting jumpy and erratic movement. Put a mousepad underneath the mouse and you should see the cursor movement improve.

You can also adjust the mouse properties such as speed and control by going into the Control Panel and opening the Mouse applet.

Do you have the correct Dynex driver installed? If not, go to the Dynex website and download the driver for your mouse. Having the wrong driver (or a generic driver) can make a difference in performance sometimes.

Hope one (or all) of those solutions helps!


Mousepad Frozen

the acer has a driver and software restore program on your desktop, I suggest you re install the driver for the mouse pad, you may have to use an external usb mouse to do it. try that


Mouse pad problem, cursor is moving but click function is not working

Try to enter BIOS (press ESC on start up) and see if mousepad is set correctly.
Otherwise try to download updated drivers from Toshiba website.
