external mouse on a Toshiba

By snaver ·
The internal mouse quit working on a Satellite Toshiba notebook so I put an external mouse and it worked for about a day but now it will not. I should say it will work about every 10th time. Any suggestions on how to fix that? I do not mind using anexternal mouse, actually I prefer that. 50

Have you tried a USB device?

Delete the internal mouse from the device manager, and disable in bios. You may be conflicting with pointer devices. Otherwise you may just have a poorly built mouse and a new one would give you a better connection.
Good luck

Have you tried another mouse? The external mouse may be bad, or the serial or ps/2 port may be bad. Please do not connect the mouse to any port while the computer is powered on -- that tends to short out the connector (unless you are using a USBport for your mouse).

If the internal mouse is not working either, then you should probably update the drivers with either the website drivers for your OS, or from the drivers provided with the system.
