I've a HP pavilion DV2000 laptop with XP. My mouse pad works ok for 5 to 10 mins then starts playing up. The curser either stops moving or very hard to control.

I'm not sure if its hardware or software problem and dont want to make things worce putting a wrong driver in.

can anyone help
Thanks

I presume you have tried Device Manager to check if any yellow exclamation marks beside any of your drivers.

And maybe give your security programs a run just to be in the safe side.

Have you tried plugging in an ordinary mouse, to see whether that works normally? This might help to pinpoint whether the trackpad is at fault, or whether it's something else in the computer (eg: overheating?)

Have you checked for yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager, as buteman suggested?
