Laptop cursor disappeared on boot up screen

Pavilion red notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I put my laptop in my bag (still on) at Starbucks and walked home 5 minutes. I open my laptop and the screen with the background picture and time and date in the bottom left is showing but there is no cursor. I have tried rebooting multiple times but still the same issue. I can't enter Windows to try anything. The touchscreem hasn't worked for about a year so I can't try that

First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.

Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat

AND/OR - Power on your PC, press Esc (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.
