Tell us the make and model of your brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system, the make and model of the mboard.

The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.

The specific model of a brand name system is often shown on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can often be determined by going to the brand name's web site and loading a program they have available, if Windows is still working, on the subject computer.

Do you mean
What to do when the cursor GETS STUCK ?

If YES...

If this is regarding the touchpad mouse on a laptop or netbook, you may have a hardware problem with that. Try,,,,
Hold the power button in or down until the computer shuts off, then let go of the button, press it again to start up the computer to see if the mouse cursor then moves.


If you have a mouse connected via a cable,
- if its plugged into a USB port, try unplugging it, plugging it back in
- if it's plugged into a PS/2 port, you could try making sure it's plug is all the way into it's port, but that will probably NOT result in you being able to move the cursor until AFTER the computer has been Restarted.
Hold the power button in or down until the computer shuts off, then let go of the button, then press it again to start up the computer to see if the mouse cursor then moves.
- if you're using a gender adapter to convert the plug on the end of it's cord so you can plug it into a USB or PS/2 port
- that will NOT work unless the mouse is a "combo" mouse that was designed to be, and wired up to be, used with either one of both types of ports.
- a gender adapter for a keyboard, which is usually purple, will usually not work with a mouse..The gender adapter usually must be for a mouse, which is usually light green.

- in any case, it's common for wires inside the cord of corded mouse to get broken, after the mouse has been used a lot, or at any time if the cord has been yanked on.

Try another mouse.
.....

If it's a wireless mouse
- the battery (batteries) in in the wireless mouse must have a sufficient voltage

- some wireless mice require that you must do something to activate them. e.g. press either the left or right button on the top of them, or press a special tiny button which is usually on the bottom of it, or move a tiny switch on it to the ON position.

- when you connect a wireless mouse's USB transceiver the first time, you will NOT be able to move the mouse cursor while booting the computer until the Windows desktop screen has fully loaded and then generic drivers for the wireless mouse are loaded in Windows.
After that, the wireless mouse will work and be able to move the cursor in Windows and while loading Windows while booting.
If you need to Login to Windows while booting the computer you can press the Tab key to toggle which item on the screen is selected, the cursor keys to move to another selection in a list, and the Enter key to Login onto a user.
Once the desktop screen has fullty loaded the drivers for the wireless mouse will be loaded.

If only the cursor then replace mouse.

Test that keyboard still works by using cap lock to see if lights on keyboard change.

Hang up and live.
