I presume you can see the motion sensing red LED or laser beam shining under the mouse. If not, that has gone bad, and it would probably be more economical to replace the mouse than to attempt a repair.
If the light is on under the mouse, try cleaning the lenses (both LED and photoreceptor) with a cotton swab dampened with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol). Don't scrub, just wipe the optics gently until clean.
It's very easy. Just follow the following steps! If you are using windows 8, press the windows button on your keyboard(the one left of left 'alt') and type "change mouse click settings" , just click on settings tab on right and click on the first option that appears. Just change the left or right orientation as per your choice now and click on apply and ok. If using ANY OTHER OPERATING SYSTEM 1. goto start->control panel 2. Click on mouse(or hardwares-> mouse if in category view) 3. click on buttons tab 4. select required orientation and click on apply and ok
Sometimes the heat from your hand passing near the touchpad is enough to move the cursor. I hate that too. If it really bothers you then you could always use a wireless mouse and disable the touchpad in "Device Manager"
Lets give this a try: Click the
Start button> click Control Panel> click
Hardware> and then click Mouse. Click the
Pointer Options tab, and then do the following:
Uncheck the Hide pointer while typing box. Hope this helps you. Let us know either way. Make it a great day!
You should have two buttons either side of your power button,
one of which (the right hand side i believe) controls your wireless connection, and if pressed your notebook will not be able to pick any wireless connections up.
The left hand side button controls your touch-pad device, possibly you have pressed this button without realising and it has disabled your mouse. Simply hit it again to resume the function of the mouse.
If you want to use a mouse with your laptop, find the preference that ignores the trackpad when the mouse is present. Go to System Preferences in the Apple menu (upper left corner of screen). Click Keyboard and Mouse" or Trackpad (depending on what you see). Un-check the option that says something like "Ignore the trackpad when the mouse is present."
(I don't see it in anymore 10.6, which won't run on your PowerBook anyway.)
