Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook
I'll plug in a USB mouse which will work for a few minutes then freeze up. The touchpad still works but the mouse won't.

SOURCE: touchpad will not work
Hello, seems like a problem with the touchpad, first disable and enable the touchpad with the button which is located at the top of the touchpad, the corresponding LED should change from blue to orange and vice versa. If this doesn't solve the issue, reinstall the driver for the touchpad, you can find this by searching for 'recovery manager' in the start bar. Next step is to select 'advance options' and choose reïnstall hardware driver, there should be an option called 'Synaptics touchpad driver' select and install. kr Gijs

Boot your laptop. After the laptop shutdow and just at the screen light up, hit f1 or f2 key to enter any setup screen. Then hit F10 to exit. after reboot, your touch pad should come back. It worked for me many times.

SOURCE: I bought Compaq Presario CQ56
a machine that new I would defiantly take it back and have it either fixed or replace, time is on your side i would take advantage of the manufacture warranty. i would also look on the keyboard see if there is a mouse locking feature, its normally the picture of a mouse on one of your function keys, press function and the key with the mouse icon on it and that may take care of it.

Well the best thing to do is to start testing your hardware, you could have a problem with your hard drive, or your ram, or your video card, or your usb ports or cable's. You can make diagnostic cd's easily by using these free downloadable utilities:
http://www.memtest86.com/download.html This utility is a classic and works great for testing the ram in your computer.
http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/ This is a seagate hard drive diagnostic utility that works on all types of hard drives to test that part of your computer.

If those pass, you can disable the usb ports on your computer from your bios potentially, and or crack open your computer and disconnect them if they are connected to the motherboard with cables :)
