    I Have an Acer Aspire 5612z (same touchpad family as the 5100) with a broken Left-click Button,

    I opened it up by taking the outer screws on the back and unlatched the casing on top (the silver casing) and found out unfortunately, the buttons themselves use "spires" or (pins) to make contact with the touchpad motherboard's pressure pads and that the left click button "pin" had broken off, making contact impossible, You probably have the same problem and will need to get the middle Scroll button Replaced, Easily Replaced but very Hard to find Replacement, My Problem might be Resolved by Contacting the Acer Repair Center near me, but quite frankly i shouldn't need to as it is an easy job to do myself, any ideas as to where i can find a replacement button???

    ok...sounds like the palm rest touch pad is either missing a cable connection or is ready for replacement.

Acer Aspire M/ The cursor disappeared and I cant get it back


first confirm that your touch pad is working or not. yor touch pad may be disabled or it may be dead. you can enable your touch pad in it's setting. you can connect an external mouse to your laptop to check that. or you can enable mouse keys in control panel.

My aspire 5310 mouse pad is not working


either your mouse pad is broken or someone or some program has shut off the driver for your touch pad. I would reinstall the drivers and reboot. if that doesnt fix the issue, I would then look into replacing the pad.
