Mouse cursor is frozen in windows 7

The mouse/cursor suddenly STOPPED. The computer was rebooted and the same thing occurs. I plugged in a wireless mouse that has been used before, but NOTHING. The cursor/mouse will not move. What do I do?

I even reinstalled windows but have hte same problem.

Have you tried a different USB port? If so then try another USB mouse!

Also may want to boot and go into hardware as fast as you can and uninstall the mouse driver. Use keyboard to either scan for hardware changes and see if it pulls a good driver or use keyboard to reboot.

Does the mouse use batteries?

Magically all the restore dates disappeared, and I know they existed.

I tried both USB ports.

The original mouse is on the laptop keyboard itself. I just tried the extra wireless mouse, because usually it will work.

I will try uninstalling the mouse driver, but I figured with putting Windows back on it would figure it out by itself - either the mouse from the keyboard or the one I tried to plug in. So far I have only been able to use keyboard commands .

Try system restore to earlier point in time.

The restore points ALL disappeared.

I did not try a wired mouse yet. I will look into it.

Thanks again all.

As its a laptop i thinking the onboard mouse as died but a wired mouse should take over when its plugged in

also would it be a little stick mouse inline with the keys ?
