Sounds like the touchpad driver you have is not the right one. Having a compatible one and the right one is the difference between XP and Vista. Also, sometimes on some laptops above, or below your touchpad, there should be a button. if you push the button, it should toggle between on or off..Or try to disable the "tap" feature in System Configuration, Peripherals, Touch Pad and be sure to click "Apply".

You can modify the xorg.conf file as follows,
As root edit:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf
In the touchpad stanza add the following lines...
Option "TapButton" "0"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
Then edit:
Option "VertScrollDelta" "0"
(if it wasn't already)
Save it, logout, reboot.

Last resort is to search microsoft knowledge base or your pc manufacturer. That seems to be a growing problem in vista but not seen in XP.

Your hard disc has bad sectors.
That means your hardrive has a defect.
That why it is not starting up normaly.

You have to buy a new harddrive and a new windows 7.
to get the laptop running again.

Your pc can run windows 7 32 bit not the 64 bit.

I have got a virus on laptop and don't have any protection and can't find the discs that laptop came with to wipe hard drive


As long as you have a Windows install disk you'll be fine. Just start the laptop with the disk in it, and you will somewhere have the option to format your harddrive. (you'll have to select advanced option in some menu) When setup asks for a license key, you should look for it on the laptop manual or the case itself. When Windows is then installed, the virus will be gone, and you will have a clean harddrive, but you'll also lose all your data!!!
If you have any questions, please ask them.

Keyboard stops responding after a powersave on laptop ACER 5715Z


The issue is that several of the Acer software products don't support Vista. You need to remove these programs.

Follow the instructions in this link
http://global.acer.com/support/winvista/t-faq.htm

Due to architectural changes to Windows Vista®,some Acer applications are not supported anymore. Below is a summary ofthese applications. Uninstall these applications before the upgrade.

Acer eRecovery Management The new version of Acer eRecovery Management, which is compatible with Windows Vista®,requires repartitioning your hard disk drive, causing data loss. As aresult, the Wizard will not reinstall the new version of eRecovery onyour computer under Windows Vista®. However, you will be able to find similar features in the built-in Backup Utility of Windows Vista®, including full system volume backup to a HDD or CD/DVD. Acer eAcoustics Management Windows Vista® supports similar functions of eAcoustics so Acer will no longer provide this utility for Windows Vista®. Acer ePresentation Management You can easily manage your external monitor settings via Windows Vista® Mobility Center. As a result, we do not support an upgrade to Acer ePresentation Management. Acer ePower Management Due to architectural changes to Windows Vista®,Acer ePower Management cannot be upgraded for some models. However, youcan easily manage your power settings via Windows Vista® Mobility Center instead. Acer ePerformance Management For notebooks only. Since Windows Vista® provides similar resource management functionalities, we will no longer provide this for notebook models with Windows Vista®. Acer Arcade™ Deluxe 3.x
Acer eNet Management 1.x
Acer eDataSecurity Management 1.x Due to architectural changes to Windows Vista®, these applications cannot be upgraded.

Alternately (not recommended) you can change your settings with the following method. I would recommend removing all the Acer software though as keeping them might cause problems.

Check under Advanced Power Options-> Multimedia Setting -> When Sharing Media. By default onBattery and Plugged is set to "Allow the computer to enter AwayMode" Changing this setting to "Allow Computer to sleep" should solve theproblem. On Battery the Away Mode "does" allow the computer to sleepproperly.

Power was interrupted during initial start up and now cannot get to load


Insert the supplied Recovery CD's that came with your new laptop, and let it boot from the CD's. This will prompt you along the way to completely wipe your disk and pretty much start over... which is what you were doing anyway. =-]
