    Hello...My laptop's pointer arrow is frozen in the center of the screen. All of the keys are working (tab, enter, etc). I did a Google search with no luck for a fix. Looked through the manual hoping to find a "shut off" button but didnt fnd that either.

    It is an IBM ThinkPad T30
    Windows XP

    Thanks in Advance

    hello have you tried

    Plugging the mouse into a different USB port?
    Replacing the mouse?

    Checking the manufacturer's site for software for the mouse and installing it?

    If you remove the mouse from the USB port, does the touchpad work correctly? If so, the mouse or the port are probably faulty.
