Make sure it is not deactivated in the "Control Panel" under "Mouse".

Some laptops have a little button at the top of the mousepad, press that to make sure it is not toggled off.

If you do those things and is still doesn't work. Go to the manufacturers website and download the touchpad driver for your specific model of laptop.

Go into the device manager (right-click computer, click manage, and select device manager)
Look for "Mice and other pointing devices"
Disable it,
Then uninstall it.
Next, install the driver you downloaded from your manufacturer.
then in the "Control Panel" select "Add Hardware"
It should then find the touchpad and install the newest driver you just installed.

Let me know if this helps or not,
Simon.

HP 2530p EliteBook - touchpad stopped working. Scrolling works except touch scrolling on right side of pad) and right button, but that's all. Wireless mouse works fine.


To access Mouse Properties, select Start - Control Panel - Hardware and Sound -Mouse.

Use Mouse Properties in Windows to customize settings for pointing devices, such as button configuration, click speed, and pointer options.

Unable to use touch pad....rt clk and slide key


If the laptop is that new, the problem is probably the touch pad "disable" button. Look for a small button just above or near the touch pad and make sure the touch pad is not turned off. If you cannot find the disable button, look in your user manual for the touch pad disable.

Touch pad stopped working


Did you turn the touch pad off accidentally? To turn it back on just hit (Fn) Function+F7

If that didn't work, go to Device Manager, Mice and other pointing devices, properties and check the status. If its OK, reinstall the driver, and power off the machine and reboot.

If there are no drivers visible during a reinstall, download them from the Acer website.

If all these did not work and your laptop is under warranty, have the manufacturer replace the touchpad.
