Compaq laptop touchpad cursor won't move

January 8, 2010 at 16:41:52
Specs: Windows XP

The cursor on my mother's compaq presario notebook won't move. I don't know why, but that little arrow just won't move. She has tried restarting the computer, but to no avail. How is this problem fixed? She uses the touch-sensitive mouse pad square that is used to move the arrow on most laptops and also to click.

Most laptops (such as mine,) have a small button above the keypad. It is usually a very thin sliver-like button. Press that, and your mouse won't work; press it again, and your problem is solved.

I just posted a questions regarding the cursor not moving before I saw this post. I do have a small button by the keypad and sure enough, that was my problem. Thanks so much!
