Mouse Cursor Freezing

Q: Mouse Cursor Freezing

Lately my HP Pavilion 750n (Windows XP as the OS, 1.6 GHz Pentium 4 processor and 768 MB RAM) has developed an problem of the mouse cursor freezing. This is accompanied by a click sounding from the tower and the HD light comes on. The computer completely locks up, so I can't determine what is causing this since pressing the CTRL-ALT-DEL keys are inoperative. I have to unplug the power, then re-start to get the mouse working again. I have MSE as the security software. Scans with this show no viruses. Any idea what's going on?

Preferred Solution: Mouse Cursor Freezing

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.)

A: Mouse Cursor Freezing

The HP Pavilion 750n desktop is several years old, so it's a good probability the hard drive is failing.
The freezing mouse cursor and clicking sound from inside the tower reinforces that suspicion.

If the hard drive does need replacing and you don't have the original recovery disc kit available to install Windows XP, you can purchase it here.

Hi there,

My mouse cursor freezes once every ~30s for about 1~2s. It doesn't happen all the time, but I suspect it might happen because of the usage of postgreSQL, as I've seen 2 other people with the same problem who also used it.

I have tested another mouse, the problem persists. I've tried updating mouse/USB drivers as well, nothing helped.

My trackpad, however, doesn't stop working at any time.
Any ideas?

Thanks.

Interesting how when you tested another mouse the issue persisted, but it works with the trackpad. Are both mice you tried (non-trackpad) wired or wireless?

It seems like every 10-20 seconds, my cursor freezes in one spot for a split second, then it's fine. It's so repetitive, it's a nuisance and I can't finish up work I have to do on the computer. I'm really not sure what it is...switched USB ports three different times (USB laser mouse), so I'm clueless.

Hi Baggy2014,

Have you checked a different mouse on the system to isolate the issue? Also, perform a clean boot on the system to check the same:

Clean Boot

Also, check the system under safe mode and let us know if it occurs there as well:

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

Hi.. I have had this problem for about a week now....
I have a sony vaio windows 7 IE 8 Laptop that I love and it is only a year old.
in the past 5 days the cursor on my logitech wireless mouse freezes. The only way to get out of it is ctrl. alt. del and it goes to my home screen and I cancel and the cursor comes back.. sometimes I go for hours and it doesnt
freeze and then sometimes it freezes every 5 minutes. there are times when I ctl. alt delete and it goes to my screen and I have to manually shutdown as even if I touch the pad on my laptop I cannot close it.. and of course when the cursor freezes
the screen freezes too.

Just to let you know that there is nothing wrong with my battery or mouse
as I have another one just like it and it does the same thing

I contacted Sony Vaio and they came in by remote and put in a patch
and said that should do the trick. but it did not...

any ideas....

do you need more info and if so what else would help in this situation.

I also play some games and that is when I most get this. and I have
the flash 102..... the latest version. and my java is uptodate.

I should also say that at times my IE8 says not responding.....

thanx Coco.

p.s.I have a friend who is very computer savy and comes in by remote

Since the issue I'm having is roughly equivalent to Windows itself hanging, I figured this would be the best place.
What is happening is that Windows freezes and I can't interact with anything on the screen. CTRL-ALT-DEL and CTRL-SHFT-ESC methods to try to bring up the task manager do not work. I am, however, able to move the mouse when this is happening, but cannot interact with anything. The only thing that returns my system to normal is a hard boot . Over a 2 week period, it has happened at an increasing rate, but my system has run completely stable for something like 5-6 years now. I formatted and reinstalled windows in hopes of a fix, but it's still happening.

Hi,
I have windows vista.
A couple of weeks ago someone on here assisted me with my computer. I had search engine redirect, along with other problems.
It was okay for awhile but then all of a sudden it started working very badly now. One thing is norton 360 seemed to disappear from my computer. I got directions and uninstalled norton and then reinstalled it again, now the norton seems to be working okay.
But since then, the mouse cursor has been moving erratically, totally disappearing and freezing up the whole screen. The screen keeps flashing to blank screens or my previous screen for a few seconds and then coming back to the screen I am on. It is having problems restarting alot of times and sometimes I can not even do anything before it freezes. I have started it in safe mode with networking and still seemed to have the same problems. The mouse pointer was still moving erratically and not working well. Just in the time that I have typed this so far the screen has flashed to a previous screen 4 times.
I have run norton scans and I dont think it is finding to much but tracking cookies.
Any other help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Kim

For more information on this tool see How To Use Sfc.exe To Repair System FilesNOTE for Vista/WIN 7 users..The command needs to be run from an Elevated Command Prompt.Click Start, type cmd into the Start/Search box,right-click cmd.exe in the list above and select 'Run as Administrator'You will need your operating system CD handy.Open Windows Task Manager....by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESCThen click File.. then New Task(Run)In the box that opens type sfc /scannow ......There is a space between c and /Click OKLet it run and insert the CD when asked.

Hi,
my mouse cursor- an optical usb - is stuck in the middle of the screen. The mouse works, as I can still scroll on a webpage with it, and click on icons, but the cursor won't budge. I've also tried a PS-2 mouse, same issue, and have tested every USB port and all work fine so it is NOT a hardware issue that I can see. I've tried rebooting and doing a system restore, and I have the same issue in safe mode. When I go to device manager, it rcognizes the device and says everything is working properly. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, nothing. Everything else seems to be fine on my PC. Any help will be most appreciated, thank you!

Hi,It appears I somehow deactivated my touchpad or something along those lines as my mouse pointer/cursor has completely disappeared? It was working fine yesterday, and I think the only thing that might have triggered this is that I accidentally pressed some keys (unsure of which ones, so I don't even know how to reverse it). I've tried restarting, as well as looked through some of the mouse/touchpad settings to no avail.

Hi I'm having a problem that I really can't seem to resolve: the image of my cursor freezes about 5 seconds after I log in, but the actual pointer still works i.e. I can still use the mouse, it's just that the cursor doesn't correspond to what I'm actually pointing at. At first this occurred randomly, sometimes after 25-30 mins of use, but now it does it every time, straight away.

One way I've found to get around it is to turn on mouse trails at the lowest setting, this lets me see the trails of the cursor (at the correct location), which at least lets me know what I'm clicking on.

I've tried:
Removing and reinstalling the drivers
Trying a different (ps/2) mouse
Trying a different USB port
Removing spyware etc with Spybot, AVG
Updating to the latest drivers
Updating Windows (which is when it changed from being random to every time)

Any ideas on this one?
Thanks in advance! James

Hi Guys, so I've just finished a HTPC build and using HippoRemote on the iPhone to control Windows. Works great if I have a mouse plugged in but as soon as I remove the mouse the cursor hides itself. I can still click on things etc but it makes it pretty hard to do without the cursor being visible.

Is there a way to force Windows 8 to always show the cursor? I'm guessing it disables the cursor if no mouse is plugged in so one option is to buy a wireless mouse dongle and plug that in to trick Windows into thinking I am using a mouse, but I'd rather not if I don't have to.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Chris

My mouse cursor will randomly freeze or disappear, yet it remains active. I can still use it by feel. If I turn mouse trails on a duplicate mouse shows up that works and the frozen one remains, although its not completely frozen as it will still change into other cursors ie the hourglass. Eventually mouse trails turn off all on its own and im left with no cursor again. I've updated drivers and checked all the settings and am left with no solution. Any help would be very appreciated.

Hi. The other day my mouse-cursor just started to move and wiggle, chaotically, and by itself towards the right side of the screen.. I have tried to switch mouse and unplug, but it doesn't help, so I figure it has to be some kind of virus or malware, yea? When it happened I installed Trend Micro Internet Security and ran a scan of my computer. It came up with one so called "generic Trojan" named "services.exe" located in C:/Windows AND one virus named "a.exe" located in C:/Windows/System32.

I went into the windows folder and found the trojan file "services.exe" to maybe try and delete it, dunno if I should've, but I was pretty aggrevated at the time, but anyway I couldn't because I needed "permission" from vista. I also looked up the virus file called "a.exe" in the system32 folder, where trend micro told me it was, but I could not find it in any searches.

Anyway, this is all very frustrating to me, because I use my computer for work, and obviously a chaotically, wiggly mouse makes it quite hard for me to do anything at all.. so I would highly appreciate some help with getting rid of whatever it is doing this!

Thanks!

Welcome to TSF hoofbite,

Noooo, you sure do not want to be deleting files you are not sure of, and especially those like "services.exe" which is usually an essential (and protected) system file. Not seeing any infection here so far - let's run a repair scan then check after.


To keep them from interfering with the repairs, be sure to temporarily disable all antivirus/anti-spyware softwares while these steps are being completed. This can usually be done through right clicking the software's Taskbar icons, or accessing each software through Start - Programs.



Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here or Here.

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select "Perform quick scan", then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.
* The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.

Anyway, after the upgrade I've encountered a problem with the mouse when I'm using the internet. Sometimes it takes an hour or two, other times it happens within minutes, but the mouse cursor always freezes in place and the internet stops transmitting information. It doesn't really disconnect, it still says I'm connected but the incoming and outgoing bytes remain static. The mouse still works and I can move it around and click on things, but the cursor is stationary. In fact, as I was writing this it happened and I had to save this on notepad and restart the computer.

I've tried updating my drivers and changing my mouse from the pin connector to USB but neither worked. I uninstalled my modem and changed my BIOS PnP settings to "no" as described here: http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?threadid=31021 but nothing worked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Logitech wireless optical mouse which has just started freezing the cursor. Sometimes I can see it and it won't move unless I left click on the mouse. At other times it will disappear right off the desktop and not reappear until I left click. Any ideas why?
I am running Widows XP and the battery is good. I updated the software but still have the problem.
 

A:Freezing Cursor

Which version of Windows are you using? If XP, which version of XP? Which service pack?
RIGHT click on "my computer".
Left click "properties".

Which Logitech mouse are you using?

How often does this happen? For how long have you used the Logitech mouse?

Can you relate the onset of the problem to the installation or removal of hardware or software, to include Windows, AntiMaware, or other updates?

Do you have another mouse? If so, turn off the computer. Leave the Logitech wireless mouse connected.

Connect the other mouse. Turn on the computer. Determine if the cursor freezes because of a malfunctioning LogiTech device, or a computer / Windows problem.

With only the Logitech mouse attached, boot to safe mode by tapping the F8 key, once a second, after starting up the computer. Using your up / down arrows, highlight / select "safe mode". Press enter. Enter your password, if necessary. Left click "ok" or "yes" when advised that the computer is running in safe mode.

Use the computer for twice as long as it usually takes for the problem to appear. If the problem occurs, report your results. If the problem does not occur, report your results.

Hello,
Well i like to play alot of first person shooter games and have not had this problem till now.Recently i downloaded this multiplayer game called Global operations public beta.It had it problems and they released a patch for it,i downloaded it,installed it,and then is when the problem started.I thought it was just the game itself,I would be playing normally then my mouse would either totally stop or it would get really......really......REALLY......s l o... w,the other movements work on my keyboard still,to move backward and forward.
At this point it is unplayable so i leave the game and when i get to my desktop the cursor is still stuck(or slow).I have to use the keyboard to reboot.Then the other day i got sick of it and went to play another game that i didnt have problems with before and it did in this game now!So i tried 2 more games(that i never had any big problems with)and sure enough...it was doing it on these games now TOO!!!.Also somtimes just surfing the net it does it,but not as fast as when im playing a game.If anybody can help me with this problem I would really appreciate it,Maybe the patch has somthing to do with it!?? THX.

A:cursor freezing on the internet

Welcome Red,
I just fixed the same problem with my computer yesterday - Been great since.
Go to control panel - device manager and remove the modem.
restart the computer, go into the bios settings and set PNP INSTALLED to no (or disabled)
Restart the computer and Windows will assign new resources and should fix your problem.
You might be prompted for the modem drivers so make sure you have them handy.

Sorry if I posted this in the wrong area.

I have a new HP Pavillon Laptop. The cursor keeps freezing and I can't do anything. I have to shut the computer off physically.
I know this is not good for the computer.

I use a touchpad. I cannot say when it freezes, it just does it randomly and at least once a day.

Any ideas?

Hello, I am having this very recurrent issue of the freezing cursor while typing or even just pressing a key on the keyboard. In fact, I have reached the parameters, tried to set the activation delay after pressing a key to "None, always active" but this option doesn't work. It freezes anyway when I push a key. I have tried to uninstall the factory driver (the one distributed by HP) and also installing drivers directly from Synaptics. Nothing works. The only way I have found to make my cursor moving while pressing a key is by completely uninstalling the Synaptics drivers but the problem is I can't scroll with two fingers anymore and above all, at the first reboot that I make, Windows 10 automatically reinstalls the Synaptics drivers and the problem with them. I am 100% up-to-date, as I have Windows Update and the HP Support Assistant running at all time. All the other students in my class have the same issue, we all are developper students and NONE of us, nor the teachers or other students from more advanced classes could manage to fix this problem. Has anyone found a solution ? Thank you very much.

Hi all.

Been trying to sort out an annoying cursor problem for a couple of weeks and cannot resolve the problem, so I hope I can explain it to you all for help.

Using Win 7 HP on my PC (Packard Bell), Firefox, the cursor suddenly hangs up. Sometime just for a couple of seconds and sometimes I have to remove the mouse. Logitech B110, from the USB port and reinsert. Sometimes this works OK and sometimes I have to switch off the OPC, leave it for a few seconds before booting up. On other occasions, for no reason at all, I get the following error message in the bottom right hand corner and the cursor freezes with the old hour glass timer:

'USB Device Not Recognized

One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it. For assistance in solving this problem, click this message.'
Obviously, I can't click on the message, as the cursor is frozen.
Quite often I hear the USB alert, but nothing seems to be wrong anywhere.
I have rune Spybot, CCleaner, AVG AV and Tune up, Malwarebytes.
I feel I should uninstall the mouse, but Windows will not allow be to.
Has anyone ay suggestions?
Many thanks in anticipation (MTIA)
Stokkers

This is a slight annoyance that seems to keep popping back up.

The cursor that turns to a teal circle when busy freezes after using the computer for like 3 minutes.

I don't know why this happens, but cycling the cursor scheme temporarily fixes it.

This is the cursor I'm talking about: Windows 7 “busy” cursor misses a beat - istartedsomething

Does anyone know what the problem is?

I'm having the same problem on my wife's laptop. The computer boots just fine, but anywhere from 3 minute to 3 hours, the curser will go "busy" and programs will start to say "not responding". CTL-ALT-DLT won't work, nothing does anything. Left it overnight once, still stuck in the morning. The only way I got it to go away was by manually powering down. Then on reboot, about half the time it wants to run scan-disk. Then, if I do anything, it freezes again. Not sure where to go from here, but I"m about to throw the thing through the wall. I built my desktop myself...figured I'd try a "brand" name...yup, big mistake. Never again will I buy a computer that I don't build myself. Running a Dell Inspiron 1545, Intel Duo-core with 4gb of ram. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone and thanks in advance for the help you can provide: my problem is this. When I use the PC mt mouse icon goes crazy and starts opening programs, creating shortcuts and the like. It happens randomly and once I press Control Alt Canc it stops.
I tried to run my antivirus and antispyware (I use AVG 7.5 and Spybot search & destroy) but they find nothing (I also tried this by running the antivirus in temporary mode but again they found nothing).
I tried using external control by running a Symantec security Check and it found a malware: C:\Temp\WPA_Kill.exe is infected with Hacktool.
I erased kill.exe, and even Symanteck Security found nothing, yet the problem persisted.
I don't really know what to do since I don't have a name for the infecting malware. Can someone please help me?
Thanks again.

I am running Windows 7 on a Dual-boot iMac.
Have been doing so 5 months, no problems.
When I booted up today into Windows 7, there was no mouse cursor.
I tried another mouse which I knew is OK, still no cursor.
Then I noticed that if I moved the mouse about vigourously, a cursor appeared from the top right-hand corner but quickly shot back into the corner and disappeared.
Any suggestions re how I can cure this please?

Problem solved.
Unplugged mouse from Belkin 7 port powered hub and plugged it into the back of the computer, all cured.

Whenever my laptop is plugged in, my mouse cursor moves really slowly and sometimes freezes. I've tried speeding it up in the Control Panel and it hasn't worked and it's making it really frustrating to use my computer, especially since the battery life is terrible so it needs to be plugged in a lot of the time. Can anyone help me fix this?
 

A:Mouse Cursor

There are not many ways that a mouse could be affected by whether the machine was plugged in or not. Is the mouse the only thing affected? Are other things slower, too? Do videos play OK or do they become choppy?

My sole theory at this point is that the battery itself is defective (or the charging circuit) and the machine does not get full power for some reason while being charged (internal short?). If it were me, my first try at a fix would be to replace the battery. A laptop without a good battery is just a small desktop.

Lithium-ion batteries can sometimes show strange symptoms. They can even become dangerous when not working properly. Does the battery area get hot while charging or when in use?

What happens when you remove the battery and run just on AC power?

For some reason my mouse cursor has started to go underneath open windows and dialog boxes rather than above them. The items on the windows can still be clicked as usual but there is no way of knowing where the cursor is until you actually click to see what highlights. The only place the cursor is visible is when it is over the desktop. How do I get it back to normal?

Thanks in advance.
