Can anyone out there help me please.......

The laptop was closed down properly last night.
This morning I switched it on only to find that the cursor was frozen.

I have tried everything..... uninstalling the driver, updating... all very difficult without a mouse. Had to use the keypad. I am unable to right click without the touchpad and buttons...so cannot unzip the driver I downloaded from PB website.

Have also tried restoring to a previous date.... NOTHING works...:confused:
Am I just being thick?:eek:
Please help if you can...... somebody?

Most laptops have a key sequence or a button to enable/disable the touchpad. Have you checked for that? Maybe the FN and F6 or something similar?

For diagnostics and troubleshooting it would be easier if you got your hands on a USB mouse.

FWIW The key 2 keys to the right of the spacebar mimics a right-click. That's on a UK keyboard, probably the same on a US one. There's a menu with an arrow on the correct key's top.
