  1. Hi,

    I replaced a keyboard on laptop - however since this the mouse pad has started sticking - have I damaged something or could this be a software issue.

    Could you elaborate a little bit more please? Is the pointer freezing in your Operating System or are the left and right click buttons sticking?

    The mouse just doesn't move - then it springs to life - and is ok for a while. the clicking works fine - and the operating system doesn't crash.

    Okay. Download and install this driver.

    If that doesn't work then it may be hardware related, one of the cables connecting the mouse may be loosely connected.
