I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So I'm posting this for a friend. They have a Dell Dimension E521 desktop running Vista. Last night they just went to restart the computer, and when it went to start back up it went to run Chkdsk (I think that's how it's spelled). Well, before that finished running, they restarted it again and then got a blue screen when it started up. So they shut it down again and when they restarted, the blue screen was gone and the windows loading screen was there (with the windows logo and the blue bar underneath). But when it went to load, it only loaded a black screen. The mouse pointer was still visible and you could move it, but that was it. The same thing happens when you go to start it in safe mode. It just keeps reloading with the black screen and the movable mouse pointer.
Any ideas? The computer was running fine before this happened.
Did the computer shutdown unexpectedly, that may be the reason the Chkdsk started to run. Have they recently installed any new hardware/ software which may have caused the problem. Could also be a virus.Read other 2 answers
A friend of mine has a Toshiba laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit. He says that since about two weeks the screen turns more and more often black when the computer is on but not in use for some time but the Taskbar and the mouse pointer remain visible. The only thing to do then is to switch the computer forcibly off and on again. Then everything works fine until he leaves the computer alone again for some time ... and very often the same thing happens again. He says that this started some weeks ago and happened only rarely but is now happening at least once every day.
Any idea what this might be and how it can be stopped?

Im using a sony vaio laptop with vista installed and recently the mouse pointer has been freezing every couple of seconds for 1-4 seconds or about that. I've updated and ran malwarebytes which found nothing and also ESET online scanner and house call by trend micro found nothing aswell.
Ive defragged the system and even checked the mouse pointer driver for updates of which there were none. I also ran ESET online scanner in safe mode with networking. Even though the scans are saying nothing it really seems like it could be a virus or malware. Also I am connected to a wired router which is connected to an internet provider box and a ps3.
Any help anyone can give would be fantastic!

I was given a rundown HP 2000-2b19WM laptop to try and fix. The problem is when it boots up past the windows logo screen it just stays a blank screen and eventually the mouse cursor shows up. I left it sitting over night still never fully booted up. I've followed all of the HP troubleshooting steps. I've removed battery held down power button plugged ac adapter in turned back on and nothing. I've reseated the memory sticks. I've ran the startup fix and says it can't repair problems. I also ran sfc /scannow in cmd prompt and it fixed some errors. I would factory restore the computer but I don't have the reset dvds nor does the person that owns the laptop. Is this a driver issue ?
Oh my gosh im having the exact same problem when i turn my laptop on i get taken to a blank screen with only my cursor and just like u i dont have a usb or a disk/dvd and ive tried the battery method as well its hopeless there must be a soloution or were screwed :?/Read other 7 answers
I have a Gateway MX8738 laptop and I recently installed Windows 7 as an upgrade from Vista. After the install everything was fine for a day until I noticed that ALL PROGRAMS on the Start Menu was empty so I attempted to reboot to see if it would resolve the issue. It then went into a scan/repair mode and attempted to reboot after scanning and now it's stuck in the Black Screen. It never gets to a Windows logo or the login screen, it just freezes. It will boot up to the Windows 7 CD and to the System Recovery Options but none of these options are working. I even attempted to reinstall the 'upgrade' but it won't let me unless I'm in Windows. I DO NOT WANT TO DO A CLEAN INSTALL BECAUSE I HAVE TOO MUCH INFO TO LOSE.
Use an Ubuntu Live CD to move your important stuff to another location, and then perform a clean install. Your data that was carried over from Vista is in C:\windows.old.
Have you tried accessing the command prompt from your CD? If you can, use the fixboot command. You should always perform a clean install because stability is more important than convienience. Most people will tell you that.
Every spyware and virus detection says this computer is clean but something is eating the Ram such that the pointer stalls and must "rest" for 3-5 seconds before it can be moved again. Keyboard commands seem to work fine. Disc has been cleaned, defraged. Hard drive is only used at 15% capacity. Any ideas on what else we can try?

Ok, so the problem is that this computer refuses to boot it is in some kind of sleep mode after it boots with black screen nothing works so i have to press once power button to go to sleep than press it again so i can see the mouse pointer with black screen(this is the only path i am able to hold shift and reach recovery mode) , so far i tried refresh i got message this computer cannot be refreshed same goes for reset and when i tried system restore it said no restore points added also safe mode does not work - SO i guess failed update to 8.1 or something worse i tried also sfc /scannow repaired something but no help(run it 4 5 times to make sure) I can't tell what kind of Samsung model is cause while i type here i am running chkdsk /r on windows partition also i can't lift it cause the case is broken and the owner has created some stand that holds the laptop so i will guess series 6 or 7 , any clue on what to do next will be appreciated.

Hello, i happened to have a problem lately with mouse and mouse pointer. Yesterday i was playing a game and my pc suddenly started freezing and laging. So i hard reset him after that i boot into windows 8 and my mouse wasnt working at all. And pointer was no were to be seen either. Today i tried restoring pc but that dont help me. In bios and in advance startup options mouse is working. So i assume its in the windows. My specs are:
intel core i5-3570k 3.8ghz
16 gb ram
Western digital 1TB HDD
nvidia geforce gtx 650 1GB
fsp 750W PSU
I tried everything except reinstalling windows (OS was installed week ago).
I have heard of stability issues on those Gigabyte motherboards where people are having those problems with their mice.
Is your BIOS up to date? maybe it will contain an update on the website for the BIOS that improves system stability.
Is this a PS2 Mouse, or a USB mouse. If a USB, disconnect and then reconnect. If its a USB mouse that is wireless, make sure the battery is good, and if you have another computer, do a test.
Also try to boot from your Windows Installation Media and see if your mouse shows there, could give it a try.
If freezing and lagging during gaming, then could be possible overheating. Do you have a program installed like HWmonitor checking your CPU and GPU thermals. Make sure they aren't getting to hot.
If problem continues to persist. I would start troubleshooting. If you have another computer. or spare hard disk that is SATA, try installing windows on that, and try to duplicate the issue, if it comes back, rule out the hard drive.
Next would be either the GPU, RAM, or Motherboard. You would have to stress test the GPU by using Furmark, or similar program, like MSI Kombuster. If GPU stress test passes, move on to Memory.
while computer is powered down, and PSU off or unplugged. remove and reseat the memory modules, making sure they are fully seated, Do memory diagnostics with memtestx86 or something similar, and do a few passes, If memory check passes, Its more than likely there is a problem with the motherboard.

I have an HP G6000 notebook that is working fine except that when I try to connect certain USB Mouse devices to it they are not installed correctly. The installation routine starts as normally but always ends up saying that the device has not been installed successfully.
Strangely, one wirelss usb mouse installs and works fine.
I have tried running Linux Mint from a USB stick and all the mice work fine, so that seems to rule out the hardware as the problem.
I'm guessing that an .inf file is corrupted but what one?
Incidentally, the touchpad device works fine as do the usb ports for any other device that is plugged in..

This error is totally OS indipendent, i.e I tried installing windows XP both 32bit and 64 bit, the problem is same, and with vista also problem is same. And one more thing to install Vista and XP I have to use external USB keyboard but thanks to windows 7 that it had included onscreen keyboard during Preinstallation Environment also.

I have been trying to get the left and right clickers on my internal mousepad to work and nothing I do seems to work. The mousepad itself works fine and I can use it, but not the clickers. When I go into Device Manager, it says that it's got the Alps-Pointing Device driver installed. I tried to uninstall this driver twice but everytime I do and restart my computer, it comes back installed. What to do. :-(
Also, I can click the on the pointers and they do click on an object, highlight it, but it will not double click on either, so nothing opens.
Help would be greatly appreciated!

Some touchpads require specific drivers installed. Did you install these from the manufacturer? This is the integrated one on the laptop not add-in devices?
After my 2.5-year-old hard drive died about a week ago, I bought a new one and installed it two days ago. Everything was going perfectly until today, when my touchpad mouse suddenly stopped responding to anything. This has happened before, and usually it's fixed by restarting the computer, so I shut down the laptop and started it back up again. However, instead of booting up, I got a black screen with a series of random characters (about 10 of them), and Vista never started, no matter how long I left it. I can't believe that this new hard drive is already broken after two days. What could cause this issue? (For reference, the new drive is a Seagate one...never used one before, don't know how reliable they are.)
Have you checked to make sure that the drive is securely attached to the connector in the laptop?
Can you post the 10-characters that are showing?
So this has been going on for a while now. When I am at my mothers house I plug in the mouse to my laptop and it works for a while but then it makes the disconnect sound and the lights are still on on the mouse. Then it keeps on making disconnect and recconect sounds and sais cannot connect to device. I have reinstalled the drivers and mouse and everything no luck. The strangest part is that everywere else my mouse works just fine. The temperature is actually slightly warmer at the places I use it other then my mothers house so heat should be not a problem and it is on the same user using the same programs and on the same cooling pad. Any other questions please respond. Also I forgot after a while sometimes the mousepad on the laptop stops working a while after the external mouse stops working.

My husband told me today that the right click portion of the embedded mouse isn't working.
The left-click and the navigation portion of the mouse work fine.
And I know there are short cut keys that you can use to copy/paste, but I would like to know if there is something I can do myself to help fix this issue? A virus couldn't be causing this, could it?
Thank you for any help you can give me.
One thing I would suggest is, go into the Mouse options (Start > Control Panel > Mouse) and change the left click to a right click, make sure it isn't a Software issue, I doubt it is, but just to make sure.
If it works fine when you switch the function of the left-click, then you know it's possibly a busted button, not too much you can do other then send it in for repairs..
I'm helping a friend with his laptop because since only a few days ago, the keyboard and mouse stopped working. I had him reboot it a few times but no effect.

I was just hoping to find a simple fix before I go through the process of sending it back to HP or Best Buy. At first, the left button seemed laggy. It would work sometimes, and not others. Then it stopped completely (all within a time frame of a few days) This happened about a month ago. Since then, I've been searching for answers, and just dealing with it. even though it's super annoying! Another thing I've noticed is that around the time that the mouse button itself has stopped working, my start menu was cleared out entirely.... Read more
I want to say it is a hardware issue but the thing about part of the menus disappearing makes me wonder if it is a virus. I would try a Windows preboot environment CD like Hiren's and see if the mouse works with different software. But that is a longshot and the likely answer is that the mouse circuit board is bad. The only other thing you could try is a factory restore.Read other 10 answers
I'm currently running Windows XP on my laptop and after working for a while the laptop and touch pad will lock up. They stop responding but things on the screen keep going. such as a web page loading or a program running so I know the whole laptop has not locked up. Other things on it such as the cd-rom work and such. I have tried to plug in a keyboard and a mouse but it still doesn't respond. I have even jumped over to Linux and reinstalled Windows a few times hoping it might fix it but I keep getting this problem.

The embedded touchpad and keyboard may be hardwired to the PS/2 controller, that may be malfunctioning. USB keyboard and mouse should work.

Hi, I have a Windows 8.1 Lenovo notebook and a Toshiba Satellite Windows 7 laptop, and a mouse, lol.
Well, the mouse has been working fine for 4 months, but suddenly, the mouse has stopped working in my Toshiba laptop. As I didn't know how to fix it, and as Toshiba laptop was full of crap, I've just formatted its HDD and made a clean install of Windows 8.1 and updated everything.
After that, I've plugged the mouse in and the same error: it connects and disconnects all the time. Sometimes, if I'm in the Device Manager refreshing the devices, mysteriously it start to work, but just for a few minutes. Sometimes, and just sometimes, the Device Manager shows that there's an unknown device connected to a USB port that is not working. The error code is 43.
That mouse works perfectly in my other notebook, the lenovo. I've connected a different mouse to the Toshiba and it works perfectly, in any port. So that makes me say this:
-The mouse is not broken, cause it works in my other laptop
-Toshiba's USB ports work nice cause any other device I connect works seamlessly
-After a clean install, it can't be a software problem
So... what the hell is going on?
Sound like a driver problem.
Did you do the clean Windows install from the Lenovo recovery partition and install all the system specific drivers? If not, visit the Lenovo Support site. Unlike some laptops, my Lenovo Yoga 13 didn't come with an automatic driver update program. You have to download their drivers and such.
They have changed their support site several times so now it's very easy to get the right drivers.

Hi, this problem started a few days back, when I installed the USB drivers for a LG C105 mobile phone(maybe unrelated) on a Sony Vaio NS230E, after the installation, my USB mouse stopped working, I installed the same drivers on my desktop too without any problems. Note that the Touchpad still work, so does the USB, detects flash drivers and my phone (Google Nexus S).
I took these steps before becoming completely clueless, here they follow:
1. tried other USB ports.
2. Other mouse.
4. Uninstalled the driver stated above.
5. System restore to 2 days back.
6. Installed the drivers for my mice.
7. My windows wasn't up to date so I installed all the important updates and some bug fix optional updates.
8. Tried Microsoft Fixit. Note: I had 2 mice that have already been connected to this laptop, when I connect them, they light up, but they don't work, and they do not show in device manager. But when I connect my desktop's mouse (which I've never used on this laptop) Windows shows an "Unrecognized Device" dialog. And I see an unrecognized device under the USB section in device manager. I ran Microsoft Fixit in this situation but obviously it did nothing.
9. Today I inserted a Windows 7 disc and had the PC boot from it. Was hoping that maybe repair or complete re-installation may fix it, but apparently, it won't because the USB mouse still doesn't work in Windows installation wizard. I'm completely clueless now.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in adva... Read more

There is a newer version out but nVidia.com doesnt have the driver for my laptop. Ok, lets head over to laptopvideo2go and see if there is a 3rd party driver.

I have not made a restore point and can not afford to lose these files. also why i am avoiding the whole system reset. Plus i don't have the vista cds and don't want to order and wait for them.
External USB mouse and Keyboard not loading either, so hitting F8 to get to the damn safe mode boot doesnt work either. . . thanks
First, the default location that Windows Mail uses is:
c:\users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail. A system restore would not affect this.
Do you know whether or not your laptop contains a hidden recovery hard drive partition? It most likely would be drive d:. To activate the HP Recovery Manager, press "F11" repeatedly upon boot-up; however, you said that your keyboard does not work. My only suggestion at this time, assuming the recovery hard drive partition exists, would be to force the laptop to crash on boot-up as this would most likely cause the HP Recovey Manage... Read more
I've updated to windows 10 and have been enjoying it for the most part. I have a hybrid pc, which is actually an Asus Tablet with a dock. It's an asus T200TA. But lately I have been running into some trouble and I really need help.
After the december (2015) big update I lost the ability to scroll using two fingers on my trackpad. Since many people were also getting trackpad problems I decided to update my driver (synaptics). After much effort finding a more recent driver and installing it (because windows 10 kept saying I already had the most recent and I couldn't run it), the issue went away. Two days ago, for no apparent reason, the issue came back. Could it be that windows updated itself and in the process "updated" my trackpad driver to another crappy one again?
Another issue that I have is with the wake up screen. Once it sleeps and I awaken it, sometimes, at least 30% of the time I get a semi-black screen instead of my login screen. The mouse cursor is visible but it's the only thing I can control, everything else is black. The only way to get into windows is to hit CRTL+ALT+DEL. Then the login screen appears immediately, not the ?ctual task manager. If my dock is not plugged, I have to shut down the pc forcefully or plug the dock. Curiously this issue started soon after I installed the driver that made my two+finger scrolling return. Don't know if it could be related but it's worth mentioning.
The third issue began last night. Again, for no appa... Read more
I have HP G60-530US.I read all the posts that talked about updating the BIOS and then doing a hard reset by taking the power cable out and talking out the battery out and then either hitting the power button for 1 minute or just leave the computer for several minutes. Many people seems to have solved their problems. Not me.I updated the BIOS and also did the hard reset like 10 times. What other options are there?I have Windows 7-64bit. This problem occured after I did the 4/11/13 or 4/12/13 windows updates.The power button, wifi button and the mouse on/off buttons are the only ones that seems to be working.

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.Read other 2 answers
I purchased my Laptop 8 months ago with Windows 8. Worked perfectly. Upgraded to Windows 10 after 1 week, and still worked perfectly for 7 months.Now the mouse and the touch screen does not work properly.If I hook up external mouse, it works perfectly.Tried to resolve with HP support, but after getting cut off on the support line 3 X finally talked to support who said it is a Windows 10 issue with their drivers, even though it worked perfectly on Windows 10 for 7 months.Told me it is not a hardware issue, even though it obviously is, works perfectly with an exteranl mouse, and that I would have to pay $100 for him to supoort looking at the OS Drivers.Should I do a wipe, re-install Windows 8, and then phone to get support since HP will not support any issues if you are running Windows 10?Thank youRead other answers
