Windows 7: laptop mouse stopped working on one of two user accounts.

06 Feb 2012   #1

Window 7 Home Premium 32 bit
laptop mouse stopped working on one of two user accounts.

Mouse on one user account disabled somehow. Tried to go to the "ease of access page" to see if I somehow set the disable mouse and keyboard box. That option not set. I suspect heavy fingers and hot keys. In desperation I set the disable mouse and keyboard option. Now I can't turn off because the screen keyboard is setting on top of the option select box and I can't see it and I can't make the key board move in any direction.

Is there a way to disable the laptop touch mouse with a system hot key?
If there is what is the key sequence? I don't want to do it again. Is there away to reverse it.

How can the on screen keyboard be de-activated? The only keys that seem to work are the "tab" , "shift", "ctrl", "Alt" and 'Prntscrn" keys. None of the arrow, number, or function keys work.

Not sure but your laptop manual should contain the information about the hotkey that toggles touchpad activation/deactivation. For example it's Fn+F3 for Dell systems.

Thanks immensely for your help. My laptop is a compaq and I found a document on the web that explained that on my model there is a touch switch above the touchpad that will turn on or off the touchpad. You are a life saver, you asked the right question and pointed me in the right direction.

Thanks again
