Question about Acer TravelMate 4001WLCi PC Notebook

1 Answer

Touchpad dead, keyboard erratic

I have an Acer Travelmate 4001WLCI notebook that the touchpad has quit working. It wouldn't be a big deal ( cause I usually use an external mouse), but now the keyboard occasionally stops working. I can still manuver with an external mouse. It seems to randomly start working after a restart (but not always) I was going to try and find a new touchpad, but now fear that maybe my problem is bigger than a faulty touchpad. Any thoughts?

Also, do you know where I might find a repair manual online that details how to get it apart to replace components or clean fans?

    I had already removed these, but tried it again. No luck on the touchpad. Hard telling on the keyboard since it doesn't always fail.

Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.

Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal

First thing to try to uinstall and reinstall the software for your touchpad. Go to Acer and get the latest drivers and or software. Sometimes, just removing the driver and letting windows find it again in device manager is enough to fix it. hopes this helps.

Normally though. keyboard and touchpad are seperate entities. which made me think of the motherboard as that is the only constant between the 2 but, if your touchpad is buggy maybe it is causing issues elsewhere.

Frozen touchpad


I followed the advice of pressing the FN and F7 keys at the same time. It didn't work when the program was fully loaded, but I rebooted and tried again during the rebooting and it worked. I had the frozen cursor on the Travel Mate (Acer) also.

Dust has built up in and around the touch pad. Purchase a can of pc dust buster, and give it a blast in and around all keys and the touchpad. You may have one sticky key which is causing the pad to behave erratically.
