Default mouse not working

The internal mouse on my laptop has just stopped working....

It was fine 30 mins ago at work, put it to hibernate, then turned it back on and the mouse isnt working. I restarted but nothing happened. I looked in device manager but nothing is wrong, everything is "Working OK" well obviously its not =[


Laptop is Advent 5302

It might have been disabled,try going to control panel then hardware and sound then mouse.When your there see if there's a enable/disable mouse button.I had a problem like that with a laptop years go the Dell Inspiron 5100.

Nope, both mice are there and working correctly. Both being because im using an external one for the mean time. Although unpluging it doesnt make the internal one work, so i dont think that the external one is stopping the internal one from working.

Then call customer service if you have any warranty on it.If you don't then take it to your local pc shop the mouse might be fried.Laptops are hard to work with,hardly any pc shop want's to work on them.

You would have to ship the laptop to them! They would fix it and send it back to you.

Did you try plugging the mouse into another to check if it's faulty? Windows may not have detected any problems. But yes, definitely try the drivers.

^ he said internal mouse, by which he, presumably, means the touchpad... you can't really try it on another comp

Okay, now, don't take this as an insult, but... some laptops (my compaq, for example) has a little handy button that allows me to enable/disable the touchpad, are you sure that's not it? Just a thought.

Sometimes, when coming back from sleep, my laptop's touchpad just simply doesn't work, usually a restart, or closing the lid (sleep) and opening it again (wake up) does it. Even though you did restart, I'd power the machine off and turn it on again after a few minutes, and see what happens.
