Seamless touchpad doesn't work

Seamless touchpad is dead in my notebook! The arrow on the screen doesn't react. USB mouse (cord) keeps working ok.
When I was trying to obtain connection between my notebook and the IG projector (thru VGA port) (to see the Power Point slides in the screen), and i pressed the blue Fn key with F5 (didn't help) and then withF4 key - the touchpad lost it sensibility.
I would greatly appreciate your help in restoring this necessary function of the touchpad!

    Sorry, but holding Fn down and pressing F4 does not restore the touchpad. The screen gets dark.

Hold Fn down and press F4 again, that should restore the touchpad. If you want to toggle between screens or projectors you hold down Fn and hit the F key which will have 2 TV symbols on it (it varies from models)

Built in mouse has not worked properly from day 1. Now my external mouse won't work either. I tried a different external moue, but it doesn't work either.


Unplug everything except the power cord, including the following:

Speakers
Printers
Scanners
USB devices
Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs)
USB flash drive or other external storage devices
External Monitor
External Keyboard
External Mouse
If your computer is attached to a docking station, undock it.



Make sure the touchpad or your finger has no dirt, grease, liquids or food on it (the touchpad has to make a good contact with your finger to work correctly).


Turn the computer back on and retest the touchpad.

When the touchpad still does not work correctly proceed to step 5.

When the touchpad does work correctly, attach one external device at a time and test the touchpad to see which one may have caused the issue.



Make sure the latest driver for the touchpad is installed (you may need to use a external USB or Bluetooth mouse), for more information refer to:
"How to Use the Drivers and Downloads Website"

Cursor continually jumps all over when trying to type


Touch pad mouse.
This unit has a "seamless touchpad with four-way integrated scroll button".
Yours is probably faulty, causing the cursor to be random.
Try disabling it and connecting a USB mouse.

USB mouse not working.


Most games have their own setup for movement, action, etc.

Check in the game for a "Setup" or "Options" menu. Usually you'll find other menus for Keyboard, Mouse and Joystick setup, where you can change these options.

Is there any game in particular your daughter is trying to play that you need help configuring?

Touchpad not working


Using your keyboard, press the windows hot key, then use the arrow keys to go up and to the right to control panel, then arrow over to the system icon, then arrow through the tabs to the hardware tab, then press TAB to select the "device manager" button and click enter....in the device manager, press tab again in order to highlight the first selection and arrow down to "mouse and other pointing devices" then press the right arrow key to expand that selection and see if it is recognizing your mouse pad, if it does, highlight it and press enter, arrow over to the "driver" tab and try updating the driver, if that doesn't work, try a troubleshoot from the first properties tab.....and if none of this works......the touchpad is most likely dead. Try contacting the manufacturer and see if they can replace the touch pad.....

Mouse touchpad, keyboard, and usb drives will not work


One thing you can try (for the touchpad)

Acer have got a function key to turn it on and iff (i thought mine was broken for a year). Hold the function key, which is located bottom left of keyboard, and then press F7. It should be F7 anyway.

Hope that helps for your touchpad
