I've just bought a new Acer Aspire 5742Z and the smart pad has suddenly stopped working. Any idea whether it's likely to be a hardware or software issue and how to fix it? I've tried...


Hi jennylewry...


To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
D. Sony Vaio Users: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Double click the Mouse icon.
Look at the top left hand side of the page, at the top and make sure that the "Tapping" box is unchecked, if it is checked then, you will uncheck it.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Touchpad not responding


Hi,

I think try to check if the Touchpad is enable. The Touchpad Switch is the Number 3. Try to turn on or off the Touchpad from there.

Good Morning: I have an Acer Aspire 5920


Hello,

As by your description, the FN F7 key combo did not solve the problem. Please restart the machine , press F8 then select from the list "Safe mode" then press enter. Then see how the Touch pad reacts in Safe mode. If it works perfectly in safe mode, we can assume you have a software problem that is preventing it from working in normal windows mode.

Please download and install the latest BIOS for your machine. The E525 has a issue where the TP just stops working, upgrading the BIOS solves the issue on the E525...
Acer Aspire 5920 3813 BIOS

Please install one of these drivers for the desired Operating system...

The "mouse" pad on my Acer Aspire 5920 laptop has suddenly stopped working. What can I do to mend it


You can try pressing the Fn + F7 key to activate it, if that does not help you can check in the BIOS if the touchpad is disabled.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

Touch pad stopped working


I recommend you to uninstall and reinstall touchpad drivers to isolate the issue.
Press Windows key and R. Type devmgmt.msc in Run window and click on OK. Click on "+" sign beside Mice and other pointing devices in Device Manager.
Right click on Touchpad and select Uninstall.
You will be prompted to restart the computer.
Windows detects touchpad and the touchpad drivers will be reinstalled automatically.
You can also install touchpad drivers from your notebook support website.
You can reinstall the drivers from the below links:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5920.html
http://www.laptops-drivers.com/acer-notebooks/download-drivers-acer-aspire-5920-notebooks.html
However I suggest you to install the drivers by visiting the acer support website.
Also perform windows update.

TouchPad not working


if not a software problem then check the hardware...because you restored already the OS right?..it means,the same problem..did you installed the touchapd driver,hotkey or any application driver...if yes...means not a driver problem...it is problem with the cable in touchpad between the board connection...if you try before to open some laptop specially that model,you open and check the cable that link touchpad and mainboard....because i had same problem before..check and try...but focus first in touchpad driver,check some settings,if you cant do nothing, open and check the cable...
