    Acer service advised to use system discs to re-install drivers.I did that , but nothing happened!

    I even upgraded from home edition to pro edition but the result was the same.Can this be a bios problem???

Hi Guest! Thanks... I have been on the phone with an Acer Representative for 2 hours (he is in India) and while he has me on hold I decided to search the net - and whala!!! There you are! You should contract with Acer and Microsoft so they can and offer services that really work!

Press the function button (FN) followed by the number lock button (num lock)

You have a numeric keypad built into the keyboard, press the function button (FN) followed by the number lock button (num lock). Hope this helps.

your palm might be hitting the touchpad causing your mouse cursor to move and jump around... try to type with only your fingers hitting the keys and the back of your hand raised and not hitting any part of your laptop... hope this helps....

Cursor skips lines while typing


My experience: cursor suddenly moving backward when i was typing, or moving somewhere else on the page. I would be typing and text suddenly would get highlighted. I followed someone's advice to disable the touch pad. Since I do have a mouse & key pad that was all i had to do.
HOW TO DISABLE THE TOUCHPAD FOR ACER 3680 AND OTHERS??? PRESS Fn +F7
Yep, it was that simple. At first I made sure i typed without my fingers or palms touching or near the touchpad. I noticed it seemed to stop or happen less. Soon as I disabled the touch pad all is back to normal. Yet I spent hrs trying to find out how and there were all these posts by people suggesting downloads and other more complicated things etc..
