Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, I look forward to assisting you today. Are you using the touch pad to move the mouse pointer?

Ask Your Own Laptop Question

It might be difficult for me to remote into your computer if you have no mouse control. Do you have an external mouse you can connect temporarily?

OMG. It just started working again! I’m on driver support page now and says one out of date driver and 24 optimization problems ?? Would that be the cause maybe

Very possibly. That is what I can check if you still want me to.

Ask Your Own Laptop Question

Now that you have your mouse back, would you like me to remote in and check it?

I updated the out of date driver that said it had something to do with mouse. Did a scan and said everything up to date. So I’ll see how it goes. What can you find out if you check it too

As long as you have it working and will have an external mouse to use if it happens again, you are probably good and I won't need to check it.

Can you fix touchpad?

Provided there is nothing physically wrong with it.

Ask Your Own Laptop Question

Unfortunately I already started the refund process for the remote service. If you would like me to connect, you will need to request Premium Service again.

Ask Your Own Laptop Question

If you are okay using the new mouse, then I am too!
