Hello trinaannlane;

Try a system restore back to a date when the mouse was working correctly.

Open the Start Menu and type in System Restore in the search option.

Check to see if your laptop has any options to 'lock the trackpad' like you would if you were using an external mouse.

Tab key, arrow keys should work like you expect.
You could try a USB external mouse.

Have you checked the laptop manual for a Fn+keypress to that locks/unlocks the trackpad?

Hit Fn + F7
I just did it and it worked for me. Hope it works! :)
