Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Compaq notebook laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is

\015 Compaq laptop: my mouse pointer or arrow is frozen. It happened when I was using email. \015\012\015\012On the scroll bars of the email, at the end of the message, two transparent boxes appeared, similar to those when setting margins on Word. Have I locked the mouse pointer or is there a fault? \015\012\015\012The mouse pointer sometimes works when the screen is setting up, but soon freezes.\015\012\015\012Your solution may need to include how to solve the problem with the keyboard only, because, of course, I can't use the mouse pointer to click.\015\012\015\012I have tried going to the computer settings and accessing the mouse dialogue box, but have limited use with the arrow keys and the enter key.\015

Answers :

If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

\015\012If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.
