    Searching the forum I found that someone had cured this problem by removing the battery and putting it back, so I tried that.
    It worked, for about 5 minutes.

    my ACER Aspire5920 laptop keyboard is acting weird. The keys down one side stopped working. If I press 1-2, q-w, a-s, or z-x they don't work at all.
    Has anyone else had this problem with their laptop. would appreciate any suggestions anyone has

    I have a brand new Acer 5720 (as of 3 hours ago) and the cursor doesn't move - touch pad seems disabled. I can't do anything. I can't even turn it off. I tried it without the battery in and it is the same problem.

I had the same problem. Do not put the battery back. It is damaged. You need a replacement. It is a battery surge that causes this behavior.

Does the mouse work everywhere else and just not chrome???

Go to your control panel in Windows and remove any software that came with the mouse. Then restart your computer. Don't worry, Windows has its own software to make the mouse work.

Lights are on but mouse doesn,t work.Inland wireless mouse and keybord. Keyboard works great.

Check with fresh batteries.. Did you sync the mouse with transciever? Push tiny button on transceiver, (maybe hold for few seconds) light flashes quickly.. then push tiny button under the mouse, light stops flashing. Try few times, maybe otherway round. If still not work consider defective.

How to de sensitize my mouse pad???

Hi Viadotra,

Try the Mouse Properties options in the Control Panel. Just as we have mouse pointer speed adjustability option for Desktop PC similarly there MUST be something for the laptop too.

One of my friends was experiencing a similar problem i.e. mouse jumps about erratically even on slightest of touches. What he did was (it might sound weird but worked for him) stuck a broad enough, transparent sticking tape (one used for packing small gift boxes, etc.) on it.

One must have steady hands to do it. It should be done in one effort only. Repeated pealing off the tape and re-sticking can damage your touchpad. I personally WOULDN'T suggest you the "Sticky Tape" option. Do it only as last resort i.e if you don't find any other remedy.

Or best yet. Just buy an external USB mouse, plug it in and use it whenever you're at home or work and use the mousepad only while traveling.!!!

Hope this helps..

I have an Acer Aspire 5517. Just the other day, my touchpad and keyboard stopped working. What do I do?

1 . Look for Fn function key - Most laptops have this special key Fn that is next to the Ctrl key on the keyboard. It should have a blue or green color, easy to find.

2 . Look for F1 to F12 functions keys, they are on the top row of the keypad. Look for one has an icon that looks like the touch pad, which is to control the touch pad of your laptop. It maybe F8 or F9 depends on each make of your laptop. These function keys also control the brightness, sound, wireless etc.

3 . Now hold down the Fn key and the F10 key to enable the touch pad, in this example, the Toshiba laptops. You press them again to disable it

4 . If none of the above works, plug in an USB mouse, then check into the Control Panel -> touch pad or mouse configurations. Also, check Device Manager if the touch pad driver is installed and working properly.

Thanks.Have a great day.

My laptops mouse is not working

IF you are referring to the external mouse attched to your laptop
then please check the same mouse with some other systm to verify if
the issue is with the mouse or with the laptop.
if the mouse is working fine with other system, then you need to
contact the service provider of your laptop.
Otherwise you have to buy a new mouse.
If you are referring to the touch pad of your laptop not functioning
properly, then please check the touch pad settings through control panel.
otherwise please shut down the laptop.
Take out the baterry out & wait for atleast 1-2 minutes.
Reinsert the Battery in the laptop & reboot the laptop.
Check if the mouse is working fine or not.
If the problem with the laptop still persist, please contact your
laptop service provider for further support.
Hope this will help you in resolving the issue.
