When I turn on my laptop and click on an icon, my mouse just freezes, any at-home solutions?

Basically I explained it. I am on the desktop and click on something to try and open it and the hour glass comes up and the mouse just does not seem to want to respond...the mouse pad on the laptop. I even tried this with an external mouse and the same thing. It is a Sony Vaio...bout 3 yrs old. Any at home solutions?
