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

Jumping letters on acer laptop when I type


You need to disable the touch pad while typing. During typing your palm can accidentally touch the touch pad causing the cursor to 'jump' randomly resulting in the problem.

You have not mentioned the model but on Acer laptops there's a key in the upper row with a 'pad and finger' figure on it. If the figure is in blue, press Fn together with the figure key to disable the touch pad and then again to enable it.

I am trying to connect my Acer Aspire 7720-6155 to my Panasonic television model number TH-42PX600U. Can you please help


You have 2 outputs on the Acer - S-Video, and VGA.

The TV has both inputs as well. Choose one (I prefer S-Video of the two), and get a cable for that type of connection.

On your TV, select the appropriate input source. You may have to cycle thru all the choices until you find it.

On the laptop, the S-Video should activate automatically, for the VGA, you may have to use the Fn Key plus one of the Functions keys for "Dual Monitor" mode.

By the way, Panasonic has free help for you lucky Viera series owners, try this web page:
