Locking mouse pointer on dual screen with touch screen

Q: Locking mouse pointer on dual screen with touch screen


I have a windows 7 touch screen laptop which I am using along with an extended desktop on a secondary monitor. Is there any way I can lock the mouse/pointer onto the secondary monitor but still use the touch screen facility on the laptop itself?

thanks in advance for any help provided.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ocassionally, while working in any application, my mouse pointer will 'stick' in one place on the screen, but the mouse itself still functions, you just can't see where it is on the screen. Re-booting temporarily corrects the problem. I've tried different mouses. I've re-installed the mouse driver. I've re-installed my video display driver. This is a brand new system with an Athlon AMD processer and an Asus motherboard. VIA Prosavage video. I use Windows 98. Please HELP!!

A:Logitech Touch Mouse 400 for a Laptop with no touch screen

Sorry I can't answer your question, but this post piqued my interest. I use the Logitech 620 touch mouse on a Windows 7 box at work. I find a little touchy and has to tweaked. But I haven't tried the 620 on Windows 8. Because I'm always looking for the perfect mouse, I think I might just pick up the 400 tonight and let you know.

The welcome screen is fine and clear of lines then right before going to the desktop screen the mouse pointer disappears it is their but can not be seen the lines are gone but so is the mouse pointer?

It might be that the graphics card is faulty.

Could you try your card in another computer in order to see if you get the same result?

I got something similar to that once and I had absolutely no idea what to do. The way I got around it was by restoring the system from a system restore point, which thankfully a program I installed made just the day before so I lost almost nothing. I don't know if your problem is exactly the same, but the system restore point worked perfectly for me. Press F8 or F5 (Can't remember which) as Windows starts to get to the options menu and choose system repair, and there should be an option for system restore on the options menu it will provide. Sorry if this doesn't help, then I got nothing except maybe putting the HDD in another computer and backing up important files that way, then doing a clean install of Windows.

I'm using MDT to deploy Windows 7 to a variety of different hardware models. For the most part, it works without any issue. Today, I was deploying to a Dell OptiPlex 9010. When the deployment finished, there was nothing but a black screen and a moveable
mouse cursor. No errors, or anything. Rebooting the machine brings one back to the black screen. Safe Mode does not load. Where should I start to look for answers as to why this happens? I've successfully deployed to other 9010s before.

A:Mouse pointer jumps all over the screen

TechSupport Gurus: Would you believe this . . . ???? Just as I sent the previous message (with the HijackThis info) to your forum, there was a knock on my door and a neighbor presented me with a package containing my long-awaited Microsoft Basic USB Optical mouse. It had been mis-delivered to his address by FedEx. If I had only received it a minute earlier, I would not have sent my previous message or now be writing this message!!! I immediately removed my old mouse from its PS/2 socket and plugged in the new mouse to the USB port and BEHOLD!!! The mouse was detected and my pointer jumping problem is gone!!!!

My theory is that some recent Microsoft update (all of which I download and install religiously) made the assumption that _all_ mice at this stage of the Windows game is either a USB mouse or at least is a wheel-mouse. So (I think) the problems I was having was just a mouse function that was looking for a wheel to twirl when there was none. Whatever, I'm back where I want to be. Thank you for being there for folks like me when we need you! Where else could we turn? Thanks again!!!

Im having problems loading windows XP on a Dell Inspiron laptop E1405.

It will boot and load windows in any of the safe modes.

But trying to load windows normally it will go from the XP LOGO window to a black screen with nothing but the mouse pointer.

In Safe mode I have already used PC Tools Spyware, Spybot SD, and SD FIX to remove all the trojans and malwares the computer presented.

I can not make a system restore since the PC was packed with trojans, after removing everything that the programs show, I am still unable to load windows normally, it will do the same as in th ebeggining. XP logo into a Black screen with nothing but a mouse pointer.

Can someone Help Me please.

For no apparent reason the mouse pointer has started jumping randomly over the screen. At times it goes on a half-minute or so round-the-world trip, activating a lot of blank menus and options. I've had to shut down the PC a couple of times today because I totally lost control of what was going on. This just started yesterday. Any ideas?
Thank you.

I've got a Dell Precision M90 laptop that was *apparently* recovered and after recovery has gone in to this state. After the Dell Bios screen the machine shows the Windows 7 boot up screen, appears to be booting normally, then goes to black screen with just a white mouse pointer. I've attempted to boot in to safe mode with no success (same result). I've tried booting from DVD but when I do that it just goes to a black screen with a blinking white cursor in upper left corner.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions...I've seen many of these types of issues on the web, but nothing seems to work.

A:After splash screen, mouse pointer only...

Usually I would say those symptoms could be several things but not limited to:

1.) Corrupt partition table, MBR, BCD, etc on the hard drive
2.) Physically failing hard drive
3.) Malware infection on the computer.

..but...since you mentioned a previous recovery was done, what was the reason for the recovery and how was it done?

When you mention you tried to boot from the DVD, what exactly do you mean? Did you change the options in BIOS to "Boot from CD/DVD (etc)", or did you choose "Boot from CD/DVD" after the PC booted at some point?

Hello confused , welcome to Seven Forums!

If you deleted the Toshiba built in Recovery partition this may not work, have a look at the information box below but also have a look at this tutorial at this link below for another idea and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

Clean Install : Factory COA Activation Key


Toshiba Factory Recovery

Be advised: this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data beforehand!

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly.
Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

A:On-screen Mouse Pointer Problem

Have you tried using an external mouse to see if it behaves the same way? I'd suspect an issue with the touchpad (or the Wacom screen) - usually something's stuck there.

FWIW, I experience some unexplained cursor drift occasionally on my new tablet with a Wacom screen - so it could be a software glitch also.

Finally, I'd suggest disabling each device in the Device Manager to see if it stops the drift. Once you locate the offending piece of software, then we can start trying to fix that.

I have a lenovo think pad x220 tablet using on a wireless network, if I am not constantly moving the mouse pointer (regardless if I use the touch pad or a mouse) it will suddenly jump to a different point on the screen, opens programs on its own. It took a long time to write this message due to the cursor jumping off the typing area. When i place the cursor back to whatever I am doing, a little picture of a keyboard comes up. When the computer is sitting idle it even occurs, you can watch the mouse pointer disappear and reappear in a different spot on the screen. It highlights desktop icons, opens programs. I am starting to wonder if someone has a remote connection and is messing with me. Sometimes it happens quickly and other times slower, it is worst when I first turn on the computer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

So I'm posting this for a friend. They have a Dell Dimension E521 desktop running Vista. Last night they just went to restart the computer, and when it went to start back up it went to run Chkdsk (I think that's how it's spelled). Well, before that finished running, they restarted it again and then got a blue screen when it started up. So they shut it down again and when they restarted, the blue screen was gone and the windows loading screen was there (with the windows logo and the blue bar underneath). But when it went to load, it only loaded a black screen. The mouse pointer was still visible and you could move it, but that was it. The same thing happens when you go to start it in safe mode. It just keeps reloading with the black screen and the movable mouse pointer.
Any ideas? The computer was running fine before this happened.

A:Black Screen with Visible Mouse Pointer

Did the computer shutdown unexpectedly, that may be the reason the Chkdsk started to run. Have they recently installed any new hardware/ software which may have caused the problem. Could also be a virus.

I have to wait, sometimes as much as 10 mins, before full control returns to the mouse. This problem seems to be getting more frequent recently, and happens almost everytime i am on the computer now.

I am running Normal XP and the mouse pointer (serial Mouse) will not move. In fact, when the pointer is seen on the black monitor screen just before the startup list of names, (immediately after the Microsoft logo and blue dot loading indicator against the black background) the pointer is solid. I exchanged the mouse with one from another computer which I knew works, and it appears it is not the mouse's fault. Tried safe mode to do a system restore and no luck. How can I ascertain the problem without a mouse to navigate the menus?

I cannot get my computer to boot. It just goes to a black screen with the mouse pointer. It will not open in safe mode. I tried booting from XP CD but it goes to the same black screen/w mouse pointer.

I already have backups of all my files and want to just reinstall windows XP but I cannot get it to boot from disc?!!!

I took the hard drive and put it in another computer as slave, I could access my files that way. But then I removed the other computers hard drive and put in this one as its only drive and it did the same thing.

It is a SATA drive if that makes any difference.

Hello, I have a Dell laptop 15R 2nd Gen i-5 processor running Windows 7 Home 64bit.

The problem I am having is this: Mouse disappears on right side of screen. The entire right side of screen (not just in the lower corner). If I move the mouse 6 inches to the right off screen, then I would have to move it 6 inches to the left again until it re-appears. If I moved the pointer 1 foot to the right, I would have to move it 1 foot to the left until the pointer re-appeared again.

It's as if the pointer kept going on to a hidden screen??

If it comes up with a black screen and just the mouse pointer.

Then this could mean you been affected by a trojan.

You can maybe try and restore a backup for the laptop. And restore it back to another date. Which could be like tomorow or day before.

Soon as you restore it make sure you scan your laptop with a anti-virus protection. See if it comes up with anything.

Today, I wanted to test my PSU because it's making strange noises lately under load. So to exclude that my graphics card had anything to do with it, I went into safe mode but when I did that I discovered it ain't working anymore.. All I get is a black screen and if I move my mouse, I can see the pointer on the screen along with the "Safe Mode" text in the corners "Veilige Modus" in dutch. I tried CTRL + ALT +DEL but none of the combo's bring up something.

Can someone help me out?

Here are some pictures:

Thanks in advance

A:Safe mode gives black screen with mouse pointer

Possible the noise is either coming from PSU or Graphics card, possible fan. Anything done just before this happened, installed a driver update, windows update or hardware. Could be driver issue with Video card, conflict and or corrupted system files.

A:Delay in Startup - Black Screen & Mouse Pointer


maybe video driver, screensaver, something in power config,

does it do the same in safe mode?

You might want to check event viewer to see if there is anything listed about the problem. check windows log, application and system.

You could reboot with logging enabled, then check the log
hope this helps

A:Windows boot to black screen with mouse pointer

Hello and welcome Francina - have you tried safe mode yet? If you can get into safe mode try these < use the /f and /r options in Option2 if necessary
Now just as a matter of curiosity why did you remove the hard drive? and when you did was it dropped or exposed to strong heat or any other types of physical stress as they look fairly rugged but in actual fact can be easily knocked out of alignment or the read / write arms bent.

Hello Forum,

A friend of mine has a Toshiba laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit. He says that since about two weeks the screen turns more and more often black when the computer is on but not in use for some time but the Taskbar and the mouse pointer remain visible. The only thing to do then is to switch the computer forcibly off and on again. Then everything works fine until he leaves the computer alone again for some time ... and very often the same thing happens again. He says that this started some weeks ago and happened only rarely but is now happening at least once every day.

Any idea what this might be and how it can be stopped?

Thanks and greetings - resucami

A:Black screen but Taskbar and mouse pointer visible

In Control Panel Power settings, he should be able to turn off screen dimming to save power. That may be related. Or it may be a hardware thing. How old is the machine?

Forgive me if this has been answered, please point me toward the thread with the solution if so.

When I boot my computer, I see "Starting Windows". The screen then goes black and the mouse pointer shows up in the middle. The mouse does not move.

I inserted my Windows 7 disc and went into repair. I tried a restore and a repair. Nothing happened. I should note that also my mouse pointer was not functioning at this time, either. That is, the pointer was in the center and the mouse was not moving.

I hear the fan going on, eventually it stops making noise, not to be confused with the computer shutting off. I guess you call that more of an "idle sound".

I checked the connections. Unplugged and replugged in the mouse. No luck.

I have a Gateway MX8738 laptop and I recently installed Windows 7 as an upgrade from Vista. After the install everything was fine for a day until I noticed that ALL PROGRAMS on the Start Menu was empty so I attempted to reboot to see if it would resolve the issue. It then went into a scan/repair mode and attempted to reboot after scanning and now it's stuck in the Black Screen. It never gets to a Windows logo or the login screen, it just freezes. It will boot up to the Windows 7 CD and to the System Recovery Options but none of these options are working. I even attempted to reinstall the 'upgrade' but it won't let me unless I'm in Windows. I DO NOT WANT TO DO A CLEAN INSTALL BECAUSE I HAVE TOO MUCH INFO TO LOSE.


A:Black Screen w/mouse pointer - Gateway Laptop

Use an Ubuntu Live CD to move your important stuff to another location, and then perform a clean install. Your data that was carried over from Vista is in C:\windows.old.

Have you tried accessing the command prompt from your CD? If you can, use the fixboot command. You should always perform a clean install because stability is more important than convienience. Most people will tell you that.

Hello, I'm not very knowledgeable on computer systems so I need a bit of help solving this issue. I like to play PC games quite a bit, and my computer can run them fine. However, I continuously have an issue with every game I've played (to include: Red Baron 3D, Left For Dead, Empire: Total War, etc) has had the same problem; the game runs fine, but the mouse pointer disappears or flashes intermittently whenever I try and play the game in full screen. It works just fine if I play the game in a window, but the experience is just not the same. I've only had this problem on Vista, and I don't know what to do.

If this is the wrong place or my problem has nothing to do with Vista itself I apologize.

Thank you for any assistance.

You might also check to see if there are newer drivers available for the mouse to see if they may address this problem.

A:Black Screen w/ mouse pointer on start-up (details within)

Hi, well by now you know you stuffed up, it is a tech rule to disconnect the mains and remove the battery before doing any work on a laptop. Testing is run only on mains and if all is well after the work is done refit the battery.

Now as you cannot access the safe mode you also cannot run RE (repair my computer) from there. If you have a Seven dvd boot from it select "Repair my Computer" try startup repair.

It's what you have not told us that might be the key here, ie what did you do to try and get the drive read by the other computer?

We may need to repair the registry "load the hive" to point to the right authority for RPC.

Let us know how startup repair went.

System files integrity check and repair.

When I attemp to do this thru Dos it says there is a repair pending so i cannot commence with sfc.

A:Windows 7 black screen with mouse pointer before logon.

you can perform a sfc in a command prompt from a win 7 oem cd. all win 7 cd's have the option to repair. it does not force a re-install, rather you will get options to perform a restore from a system restore point, cmd prompt, mem test, and a restore for a win restore partition.

I use FULLSHOT. It's not free, but it's terrific. Been using it (and each of its upgraded versions) for 15 years now.

Keyboard hotkey shortcuts can be used to trigger assorted types of screenshots, so that the mouse does not have to be touched. Or, you can also use mouse clicks on a row of buttons superimposed on the right side of the titlebar in whichever window has the focus. GUI windows that don't have a title bar but that have the focus require use of the keyboard hotkeys to accomplish screenshots.

You can try it out for free and decide for yourself if it meets your needs.

This is only happening on one machine (that I know of)
No safe modes work since they all still go through the ctrl+alt+del logon process, ultimately leading back to black screen - so no cmd prompt
Reboot doesn't help
Last known good config doesn't help
There are no restore points
Trying to figure out if there is some other way to get access to task manager before I just reimage the thing.

I have an MSI A6000 laptop with Windows 7 home professional.  I have a nephew who got some vuze files and today I got a BSOD.  So I tried going to Safe Mode, which I could not do.  So I used a Windows 7 installation disk and did a start up repair.  Now after the windows logo comes up, it just hangs on a black screen with the mouse pointer (which moves).  Still cannot get into safe mode.   Tried the startup repair 3 times since then, with no improvement.  Please advise me.

-I swapped out the video card...
-I ran geek squad diagnostics which passed...

I haven't tried reformatting yet. I really hate using that for all problems. It seems like its just hung up on something. Does anyone know what could be going on here? What other useful tips I can use?

There is also one time after entering the login password, it just stay at the screen that display the text [Welcome] and the turning circle loading forever.

Q1 What can I do now?

Q2 Is there a way to save some of the files that are inside the disk? (maybe unplug the disk and put into another PC, or access through DOS ?)
Example of files I want to save
C:\Users\[windows username]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

A:Acer 6920 - BSOD or Black screen with mouse pointer

Every step possible to start unbootable WIn7 is in the tutorial.

You must start at the top of the steps to disinfect the OS or it may not repair.

Try running Startup Repair from the installer (which is provided) or System Repair CD. Did you assure Win7 is marked Active as instructed?

If you take it to a shop without completing the steps then you have not done the work. You even have everything you need to either run Acer Factory Recovery or get the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 .

Start at Step 1 and work your way through every step in the actual order, not pick and choose.

Hi all i have two monitors attached to my system

One is a standard DELL SE198WFP (eww i know but it was free)
The other is a NEC AS191WM (touch screen)

When i have the NEC plugged in on its own i can do the touch callibration without any issues. However when i attach the DELL and redo the callibration it is off by a mile, it thinks its interacting with the DELL.

For example i press start on the NEC screen and it randomly places the mouse on the DELL monitor.

Any help on this would be greatly appriciated.

I'm getting to my wits end with my laptop I have a Z Touch windows and I love it Touch - Z500 Disappearing Pointer Mouse apart from the fact the mouse keeps randomly Z500 Touch - Mouse Pointer Disappearing disappearing I have no idea what triggers it It's whilst I'm using my laptop too it doesn't disappear after it goes to sleep or is locked etc nbsp Tried several different things ctrl alt delete F etc none working at the moment Tried to see if any of my devices needed fixing and that was a no go too I don't have a usb mouse to plug in at the moment and I'd prefer to figure out how to stop or at least fix this without having to get one if at all possible nbsp I don't know if this is a setting or a button I keep accidentally pushing but if someone could please tell me how to get my mouse cursor back I'd be eternally grateful as this is driving me insane - the only reason I could even get on here was because this is touchscreen but I miss my mouse pointer nbsp nbsp nbsp Mod's Edit System model added to front of Subject line to improve visibility clarity

A:Z500 Touch - Mouse Pointer Disappearing

hi emmz992,
Welcome to the Forums.
Just to verify, did you encounter this issue the first time you setup the PC or you just encountered this lately?
If it's just lately, can you try one of the following:
1. Disable "hide pointer while typing" under Control Panel (large icon view) > Mouse > Pointer Options Tab and enable "Show location of pointer when i press CTRL key"
  - Link to picture
2. Uninstall the Touchpad Driver (ELAN or Synaptics) under Control Panel > Programs and reboot. Upon logging back in, Windows will use a generic touchpad driver. Try to observe the mouse pointer behavior and observe (you can always re-install the touchpad driver by navigating to D:\Drivers\Touchpad or by downloading the driver from the lenovo website).
3. Boot in Safe Mode with Networking and observe the mouse pointer behavior. If all goes well, perform a clean boot and observe. If same problem, perform a System Restore in safe mode to undo any possible updates that was installed on the system (ensure that you make a backup copy of your files).

The scroll on the touch pad causes my cursor to freeze on the screen. It displays a frozen tiny scroll bar on my screen with the cursor attached. Locks up  the compute. Have to log off to get it working again. Help!

A:touch pad mouse locking up

maybe hit ESC a few times. Once you are out of the lockup, see if there is an update to the touchpad driver. Also, check the touchpad settings (some model let you define which area and the size for the scroll, etc).

This recently started happening Sometimes when I boot my computer it displays a flashing mouse is but on pointer displayed boot, screen White pixelated white screen with colorful White pixelated flashing screen on boot, but mouse pointer is displayed pixels scattered across the screen It starts by constantly flashing from the white screen to black Eventually it stops at the white screen I can still see my mouse pointer though and move it around It's happened three times now and it only happens every few boots I have to hit the reset button on my case to get out of it Any idea Thanks Here's a picture of the white screen http i imgur com mPLw I jpg OS Windows MOTHERBOARD Gigabyte A-DS P CPU AMD FX GPU EVGA GTX FTW I have also attached the event error log EDIT I think the problem has to do with the constant spamming of this in the logs Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered So GPU drivers or GPU failure By the way this only happens on SOME OS BOOTS Games video run fine without crashing if the OS boots up properly

I have a Satellite P850/040

I tried to start it up and was taken to the "Windows Error Recovery" screen. I tried both "Launch Startup Repair (recommended)" and "Start Windows Normally" options. Neither worked!

In the "Advanced Boot Options" I have unsuccessfully tried the following options:
Repair Your Computer
Safe Mode
Enable low-resolution video
Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)
Start Windows Normally

Stupidly I have not run a back-up of my files for 6 months & cannot afford to lose some of them.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Or should I send it off to a Toshiba Service Repairer (there is not one available in the town I live in)? Thanks

> Stupidly I have not run a back-up of my files for 6 months & cannot afford to lose some of them.

Two options:

*1)* You would remove the HDD from the notebook, and would use an external 2.5? USB to SATA enclosure in order to connect this HDD to another computer. In such case you should be able to get access to the HDD and to rescue the files.

*2)* You would boot the notebook using Live CD like Linux Live CD or an WindowsPE Live CD. Google for that to get more details.
