Cursor frozen in middle of Screen.

  pompyx 19:40 20 Apr 09

Advent 7201 Laptop.
AMD Mobile Sempron 3000+
Laptop boots up normally, but the Cursor will not move, either with the touch pad, or the Arrow keys.
I can get to the SafeMode options page via Del, but obviously can't choose an option.
I cannot get into the BIOS, but as the Arrow keys aren't working, it probably doesn't matter.
I have tried it with a usb mouse, and Keyboard, with no effect.
Can anybody throw any light on the problem please?

Safe mode.Up down key on laptop and go to last good configuration and press enter.see if that helps.

Have you recently updated your touchpad driver?

How about trying.Remove battery and wall the start button for 10 seconds then reconnect battery and charger and start laptop again and see if that helps.

This is a more definate answer:

Your RAM has had it

touchpad drivers corrupt, you have to use the keyboard to uninstall it in device manager. then restart laptop

PS us Alt plus underlined letters in menu. And to cycle through things use Tab key, Space bar for select etc
