    Turned out that the keyboard,touch pad,wireless card,and cd drive where all inop. I think this all happend after windows did a automatic update and some of that update included system drivers. I used system restore to set it back before that update and it solved the problem. Don't let windows have control of your updates, not the first time I have seen a prob. related to windows update.

Recently a friend of mine had this [rpblem, also with an Acer and it turned out that the cause of the problem was that the battery had been over charded and cooked. He took the batteyr out and it worked fine. 
Does your keyboard work?
Make sure you are plugged into power before taking the battery out

How do I unstick my curser. I have re-booted, shut off and restarted the computer. I can not get it to move at all but the curser will move if use external mouse


You should have two buttons either side of your power button,
one of which (the right hand side i believe) controls your wireless connection, and if pressed your notebook will not be able to pick any wireless connections up.
The left hand side button controls your touch-pad device, possibly you have pressed this button without realising and it has disabled your mouse. Simply hit it again to resume the function of the mouse.

My touchpad is not working on my acer aspire 5315 my cat walked over keyboerd when i was using it and curser has gone what can i do


Hi there,
Your Touchpad is disabled, thats why its not working, to enable again, simply press Fn+F7 Key, you will see a small blue icon on F7 key, with a finger pointing, its basically a short cut for enabling/disabling Touchpad,
If it doesnt works, restart your laptop once, and restore the BIOS settings to default, save the settings and reboot laptop, and it should be working again,
Feel free to reply to this post if you require more assistance,
Regards-BA

When I boot my notebook up I can't move the curser, it is stuck on one person to sign on, the curser is not positioned on that persons name either.


TRy plugging in an external USB mouse. If the mouse is OK then the touch pad has failed.
Check the touch pad driver in the control panel then Device manager.
Hope this helps.

Wireless mouse curser does not move new batteries installed


If the mouse totally stop working like left/right click, moving, etc then i suggest replace the battery of your mouse and try. If the same result then again install the driver & restart the netbook.
Thanks waiting for your feedback.

While im typing, my curser skips back into the middle of my sentences, and i have to retype my whole sentence again...what is causing this to happen and how can i fix, thank you


if it is the same thing that happens to me you need to shut off your touchpad (mousepad) when you are typing as your fingers or palms cause the curser to jump if you touch it while typing

Black screen with blinking curser in left top corner


Hold the power button down and let it fully power off then boot it back up. If you get a prompt saying Windows did not shut down normally, select Last Known Good Configuration.
