NO!! bad idea, mine locked up, then i forgot my charger, battery died and stayed dead for a day or 2 then when i charged it again the touch pad was fine, all you have to do is reset your laptop, by removing the battery for a little bit, not sure how long is really nessicary but 1 hr should def. do it! hope its not too late!
Best solutions is gonna be to reformat the compute using ur acer e recovery partition. hit ctrl + f10 on the first page when ur computers turns on and hold u will be promted to continue, if the ctrl+f10 key doesnt work i may have mistaken myself. just search the acer e recovery on google and ull find the correct key combination.

Sometimes it differs but you can try pressing FN and F7 together on your keyboard to see if that will enable the touchpad again.FN should be next to your left-ctrl on your laptop keyboard.
On other Acers, there's either a seperate button to enable the touchpad or a different Function key. See on your keyboard the function keys and choose the one that looks like a tochpad, with a pointing hand. Sometimes the icon on the key just looks like a mini-touch-pad.
I am not familiar with this laptop, I used to disasemble acer unit a few years ago so i'm basically going of memory which is quite sketchy. If I remember, once you have taken the to off you then unplug the ribbons from the motherboard, though i think you have to take the whole motherboard out to get to it. If you blow the picture up you will get a far better understanding then follow each step / picture carefully. Sorry I can't help you further.
If you are using windows, when the OS is booting, press F8 and select "last known good configuration" in the list of options. Most probably it'll work If it doesn't, try restoring the system to a previous state using system restore utility.
Navigate to Device Manager
Start >> right click computer >> Device manager
I believe for 7
If the device does not is missing completely, your touch pad needs to be replaced
If it does show up completely uninstall the driver, reboot and reinstall
I found this solution on another support blog, its works....
i had the same problem but the answer is so freaking stupid. k
tried installing all the software again and again but no cure. Then I
read on a forum that i just needed to get the battery out for several
second and it worked!!
shut pc down,
remove battery (and if plugged in the power cord)
Replace battery, boot it up and all should be fine.
