Arrow Laptop mouse help

If the laptop mouse isn't working, could it be replaced with another laptop mouse? The replacement mouse would be of the same type of laptop.

Are you talking about the touchpad? Yes, it would work.

Of course, you could also just use an external mouse...

A second mouse is a handy thing to carry, I keep a USB mouse in my bag at all times.

Also I don't see the problem with swaping one mouse from a laptop with another I have no idea if there is a standard internal connector for them though.

I always use an external mouse - I have never personally like the touch pad...I am looking at mine right now and I imagine it could be replaced but I would suggest looking at the support for your model - it may have a guide to change out the touch pad...
