Cursor stuck in the upper left corner

I just replaced the logic board and optical drive and when I boot up the mouse pad does not work. What should I check 1st?


The built in track pad is not working. I am checking the connection now. I was hoping to find out which connection is the likely problem.

thanks for the help

Do you mean you're running a USB mouse or the in-built trackpad on the keyboard area? If it's USB the check ports externally for dirt/bent pins and for solder crack internally. If it's the trackpad and you had no previous prioblems then you should recheck your connection there.

Reseat the keyboard connector making sure you haven't bent over any pins on the connector: PowerBook G4 Aluminum 12" 1-1.5 GHz Keyboard Replacement

The 4 pins are straight and connector seems fine. Yet no track pad working yet.

USB mouse does work.
