Hi all,

The mouse cursor on my Laptop has stick dead in the centre of the screen.

Ive tried restarting it but to no avail, plugging in a standard mouse solves the roblem but the touchpad doesnt seem to work.

It only happened after a Windows update.

Can anyone help?

Thanks
Rich

Hi Rich, welcome to TSF...

have you tried uninstalling the Windows Update?

Also, you may need to reinstall the touchpad drivers...do you have any alerts/warnings in your Device Manager?

Hi,

According to the device settings in Control Panel > Mouse it says the device is working properly.

How do you un-install a windows update?

Thanks
Rich

You need to go into Add/Remove programs and check the box at the top titled 'Show updates' then scroll down the list to the hotfixes/updates then uninstall the update as you would a normal program.

Rolling back the update seems to have solved it.

Thanks for the quick response.

windows mouse sensitivity...
I wasnt sure whether to post this in the games forum or the windows xp forum, but considering the "problem" extends past gaming and into windows desktop, I am assuming it is a windows thing. I am a somewhat competitive gamer so mouse "feel" is just as important to me as actual mouse sensitivity,...
