Windows 7: Mouse freezes up at start up

10 Jan 2010   #1

Mouse freezes up at start up

When I wake my computer up from sleep, the "mouse" or touch pad is frozen. If I restart my computer, it works ok. How do I fix this?

If the problem persists, then it's most likely a software problem, like a bad driver trying to load. To check if it's a driver, wake the computer, then hit F8, and choose Safe Mode. If all goes well in Safe Mode, then it's a driver of some sort. If that is the case replace driver, or update.

Is there a button on your laptop to enable or disable the mousepad?
