Plug in a usb mouse, go to control panel>system>harware>device manager and click on the + sign next to pointing devices. Right click the touchpad and click on uninstall. Reboot the laptop and unplug the usb mouse. This should pick up the touchpad as new hardware and reinstall it. Hopefully this will resolve the problem.

Acer mouse disassemble ???


The Acer Aspire is a laptop model that has a built-in "mouse pad," also called a "touchpad." The user runs his or her finger across the mouse panel to move the cursor. If your mouse pad no longer responds to your touch, it may be due to a build-up of dirt and grease. Another common problem is having an outdated or damaged mouse pad driver. These problems can be quickly resolved without having to take apart the laptop.


Hold down the "Fn" key, which is found at the bottom left corner of the keyboard. Press the "F7" key once while holding the "Fn" key. Look for a message that says "touchpad enabled." b> Update the Drivers Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "System and Maintenance" > "Device Manager." Double-click on "Mice and other pointing devices" to expand the options. Right-click "Synaptics Touchpad" and then click "Search automatically for updated driver software." Wait for the computer to scan and install new drivers. Restart your laptop.

How do I turn the synaptic touch pad off on my acer aspire


This should be an easy fix...after many months of trying to disable touchpads on machines that did not have the one button disable feature either in the control panel or on the touchpad itself I discovered it was one of the function keys.

Press function (FN) and the "F7" key...press again to re-enable. Good luck!

Navigate to Device Manager Start >> right click computer >> Device manager I believe for 7
If the device does not is missing completely, your touch pad needs to be replaced
If it does show up completely uninstall the driver, reboot and reinstall
