Solved Cursor not moving on laptop

October 2, 2012 at 12:33:48
Specs: Windows XP
Okay. I have a mouse plugged into my laptop. The cursor moves with the mouse, but not if i'm using the pad-thingy. I tried unplugging the mouse, but it still doesn't work. I want to know if I possibly hit a button in control panel or something. I have a Latitude D610 laptop, I don't know if that's important.

Look in device manager for the touchpad. If not listed there then you need to install the chipset drivers from the manufacture of the computers' website.

What didn't solve the problem? Did you follow the instructions and reverse the process to enable the touchpad? Possible reboot may be required.

If the problem is not resolved then why did you mark my response as best answer?

I am sorry, thought you deserved best answer because you actually gave an answer. I followed all the steps, except some of the buttons they were mentioning on the control panel weren't there. Like "Mouse Preferences" I couldn't find that one. What does rebooting mean? I'm going to try turning it off, than back on.

Okay. This computers old. My brother just told me (he used to own it) that the touchpad goes "off" and "on" randomly, and that I just have to deal with it. Thank you for trying to help! :)

Turning off the proper way and back on again is rebooting.

Control Panel> mouse> hardware. Select the touchpad from the list of devices. Then click on the device settings tab. Click on the Enable button. Click OK to exit.

I Know. But there Isn't that option. There is no list of devices, there is no touchpad item. There is only the mouse.

Nope, the problems not solveable. But you tried your best, and probably gave me the right answer. I just can't afford to buy extra stuff for the laptop right now. Thanks :)

There is nothing to buy. The download from the manufacturers' website is free.
