    When I fire up my laptop, and everything loads, the mouse cursor won't move.
    It is frozen in the middle of the screen.

    Is there anything I can do to resolve this?

    I just hooked up a USB mouse and rebooted. Same thing. Cursor is frozen in
    on the screen. I have never used a usb mouse before, so perhaps it has to be

    What about starting it in safe mode? The problem is, I can't remember how
    to do that!

    Well, I remembered how to go into safe mode (F8) but it still loaded what I
    assume is a corrupt driver from the internal mouse pad.

    Any suggestions??? HELP!

    insert you driver disk for the mouse pad and use the key board to
    navigate around to reload your mouse pad drivers.

    Well, after spending close to two hours online with a tech guy - - - it
    seems there is a touch-pad shut off switch between the keyboard the touch
    pad that was inadvertently switched off. What a terrible freakin' design!
    Anyway, I'm good to go again. Thanks for your help, D. Ford!
