Acer 3100 Notebook Touchpad issues

Recently my touchpad started acting up. At first start up, it will work correctly. After a few, it will start to work erractically. You can not get the cursor to follow movements and wants to do it's own thing.

If I use a wireless mouse thru my USB, the wireless works fine.

Please help!!

Acer Travelmate 3100 about 2 yrs old.

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.

My acer 3100 keyboard and touchpad arent working. any help?


It's possible that something uninstalled the devices from Windows. You can try connecting an external keyboard and mouse, then check the Device Manager to see if it flags any hardware problems.

Another possibility is that the flat cables connecting the keyboard and touchpad to the main board have come loose. To check the cables you need to remove any screws securing the keyboard and pop off the top edge trim to lift the keyboard up.

Mouse touchpad, keyboard, and usb drives will not work


One thing you can try (for the touchpad)

Acer have got a function key to turn it on and iff (i thought mine was broken for a year). Hold the function key, which is located bottom left of keyboard, and then press F7. It should be F7 anyway.

Hope that helps for your touchpad

Touchpad Not Working


is there a touch pad 'switch' off function with this particular model? Some Acer machines have an F number plus another key to de-activate/reactivate touch pad. Check your Manual
