I don't have an external mouse. She has a Satellite L305 S5955, Intel Celeron processor 900 (2.2 GHZ0) 15.4 TruBrite vdisplay, 2GBemory, 160GB HDD. My grandson was playing on her laptop and I guess he changed something

 

Please hold down the Fn key and then hit F9(you will find this on the top line of the laptop keyboad.)

Thanks.

1. Press the power button until the laptop shuts off.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Without using the AC adapter, press the power button nonstop for 30 seconds.
4. Replace the battery. It will probably take a minute before you can do the next step.
5. When "Restart Windows Normally" appears highlighted, press Enter.
6. Press FN and F9 at the same time until little pictures of mice appear on rhe screen. One should look like a normal mouse. The other should be a mouse with a "stop sign" through it. One picture will be bigger than the other. If the normal mouse is bigger, it should say "enable" under it. If that's the case, let go of the FN and F9 keys and hit Enter. This should enable the mouse/touchpad. If the larger picture is of the mouse with the "X" through it, it will say "disable" under it. If that's the case, then press FN and F9 again so the picture of the normal mouse saying "enable" is larger, and then press Enter.
