Windows 7: Mouse/Cursor Stops Working Randomely

27 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7, 64 Bit
Mouse/Cursor Stops Working Randomely

The other day my computer cursor stopped responding to my touchpad. The cursor was absolutely dead... doing absolutely nothing onscreen. I checked the touch icons on my keyboard, one of which indicates the touchpad, and pressed it on. Now it is working... well, sort of.

Just a few minutes ago this happened again, but the touchpad icon on my keyboard was lit. I turned it off, then turned it on again. It started working again. I thought the last time it stopped working because the touchpad was turned off. Apparently that's not the case.

So... what exactly is going on?

(I'm sorry if this is the wrong thread... do cursor problems count as hardware issues? Haha.)
