Laptop question

Post by SoMelo »

My sons kitten walked across the laptop and now the cursor is locked. Anyone know what he stepped/slept on and how to fix it?

Your son has a Hello Kitty laptop?

No idea on your question but my cats are always finding buttons I didn't know about. Worst when they decide to stand on the F1 button and I have to close 20 Help windows.
Don't look at me, I just work here.

I have no idea what the kitten hit, but with my laptop, any issue arises that I can't fix quickly, a hard reset does the trick.

Hold down the "power" button for 6-10 seconds until the laptop shuts down... wait 30 seconds to a minute ... boot it back up.

hah.. Tried it, cats aren't as smart as they want us to believe. I finally got it fixed all the sites I went to said FN - F7 (made sense since there was a little mouse icon on it), but it was FN - F1..

Hard to remember how we used computers back before the Mouse --:--
