Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?

Cursor frozen My cursor is frozen on my laptop. I can navigate using the up and down keys only.

Answers :

I hoped you would clarify whether your using an external mouse or the touch-pad, but...
\015\012Possible bad Touch-Pad. Connect an external mouse, does it work? If it does then it is probably a bad Touch-Pad. Just order a new Palmrest.
\015\012It may also be just a simple connection issue. Take out the keyboard and see if you can reseat the connection for the palmest to the motherboard(MAKE SURE THE PC IS OFF, UNPLUGGED, and BATTERY is OUT). The connection on the motherboard may be bad, but not likely.
\015\012The 1525 is not fun to take apart, but its not too bad.
\015\012Try the easier solutions first. You may find purchasing a $20 external mouse is more beneficial than troublehsooting.
Have you tried installing a regular mouse?

also you can try going to the device manager and uninstalling the touchpad driver and then reinstall it.
