Mouse delay

  Stuarthouston 20:20 19 Sep 2004

Ive got an external mouse connected to my laptop. Whilst the touchpad works ok, when i use the external one, there is a delay of 3-4 secs before the mouse starts to move. Any ideas how to sort it? Thanks in advance.

Some combinations of touchpad drivers and USB or PS/2 mouse drivers don't get along with each other.

try disabling the touchpad (Control Panel? or BIOS?, check your PC literature), and see if the problem still occurs.

if that cures it, and you prefer to use a standard mouse (as I do) then leave the touchpad disabled permanently.

I'm going to try what you said. As the problems started when i got the touchpad fixed. Unfortunately the bios on my computer is very poor. So ill need to look out the manuals. Ill keep posted.
