1.I have an Acer Aspire 7720, purchased 7/7/08. When I type, I suddenly find that the letters suddenly jump to another part of the page. What is the problem? 2. The touchpad is far too sensitive. How do I reduce its sensitivity, or alternatively disable it?

    I am on Vista Home Premium, so the instructions didn't follow.

    Sorry, sandrew! When I go to Device manager and click + , I see:

    HID-compliant mouse

    HID-compliant mouse

    PS/2 compatible mouse



    To which of these do I apply your instructions?

    (You will gather that I am a complete novice!)



    Regards,

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, and then restart the pc.

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

repeat the process for your keyboard

When I am typing the cursor will suddenly jump to a previous line.


open your touchpad properties (Fight click the touchpad icon in systray or Control Panel, Mouse, touchpad tab)
Depending on the driver you'll either have an option for Palm-Check or Touch-Check or similiar item. Enable it, if there is a sensitivity adjustment, try minimum or just above minimum. reboot
Palm-Check disables the touchpad while typing which should abate this issue.
Here is some Dell Information, it may apply to your Acer too:

My Acer Aspire 7720 cannot connect to the internet


go to network and sharing center. it should be where you click on the internet icon down at the bottom in taskbar right side. when it opens try setting up a new network. if that don't do it check to make sure your wi fi is on or needs resetting. also on that page in the network center is a pretty good troubleshooter. good luck
