Hi Kumar754
Thanks for the solution. I have an Acer 1642WLMI. My keyboard was not working. The system use to hang when i use to restart with battery on and the wirlesss also stopped working. I removed the battery and booted. All works fine. I have not inserted the battery back. BUT what if I really need a battery, because power will not be available on the move all the time. If I buy a new battery, can I boot it with battery inserted ?

  • shutdown and power off your acer laptop
  • then remove the battery out of laptop
  • connect the power and switch on ur laptop
  • let it boot to operating system
  • check if its working now? ur keyboard and mouse should be working now
  • you can now connect the battery and keep working.
  • if u want to power off, put ur laptop in hibernate more, rather than shut-down. so u dont have to reboot next time without battery.
  • if u restart or start ur laptop after a shutdown, make sure to remove the battery first

    i hope this will help.

I turned off my touch pad to my acer aspire 5733z and it wont turn bk on


Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.


Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.


The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.


Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.


Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.

Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.


hope this helps

Touchpad not responding in netboook


There's a little button right above the touchpad. If the light on this button is orange, the touchpad is disabled. Press it again until the light is white again and your touchpad should work.

Acer laptop keyboard & touchpad not working


If you can log in by pressing the f8 key in safe mode, then try the system restore. If it doesn't work, it could be very well be a hardware failure.

Touch pad won't work on Aspire 5515.


If the touchpad has gone bad there's not much you can do, unless it just happens to have a loose connection. You can try disassembling the keyboard to get access to the touchpad cable and verify it but to be honest, that's an unlikely scenario.
Can you plugin a usb mouse? Or you could try an external touchpad like the Bamboo made by Wacom although that's a bit expensive. Again, it would need a usb connection though.

If you have got a usb mouse plug it into your computer then go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager and go to pointing devices. Right click on the + sign next to keyboard and touchpad, click on uninstall. Then reboot your machine, take the usb mouse out. Windows will reload the correct drivers for the keyboard and touchpad as new hardware and your problem should be resolved.

I hope this helps
