why does my mouse pad freeze (cursor won't move). It happened while on skype

My mouse pad (cursor) will freeze up once in a while forcing me to reboot. My laptop is a HP Pavillion dm4. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

Hi,

 

Can you post back with the following.

 

1.  The full Model No. and Product No. of the notebook ( from the service tag underneath your notebook ) - see Here for a further explanation.

 

2.  The full version of the operating system you are using ( ie Windows 7 32bit ).

 

Regards,

Some laptops have a small button near the mouse pad for turning it off to save power.  If your laptop does, try pushing that button again to turn it back on.

Hello, I format my home vista to window 7 but since I have done that I do have problem with my cursor moving most of the time. How can I solve it or window 7 is not compable with my laptop?
