Certainly no expert here, but my HP laptop has a touch pad and when I loose control of my optical external mouse like you are describing, I need to double tap the upper left corner of the touch pad and it will allow the external mouse to operate again. WIN 7 PRO operating system. Mine even shows a small red light in this location on the touch pad. Took me awhile to figure this out. Now it is easy. HaHa.
