My cursor keeps freezing (touchpad stops operating it) and then disappearing....

My computer: HP Pavilion DM4-2000EA Laptop

My cursor periodically freezes i.e. the touchpad stops working, then the cursor itself disappears.  I have only been using this new laptop for a week!

When I plug in a mouse it's fine.  But I need to use the touchpad too!

Any advice gratefully received.

Thank you!

http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Lockups-Freezes-Hangs/my-pavillion-dm4-1160us-constantly-has-t... may help. My HP 2000 doesn't have the light that he referred to but it does have a little indented space that if you tap twice it freezes the mouse. Tapping it again unfreezes the mouse. HTH!

My pointer stops working, probably because I accidentally disable it
