Go to the Acer website and contact them about sending it in for repair. You don't want to be messing around inside a laptop if you don't have to.

Why isMy Acer aspire gettting really hot, would replacing the battery help?


Sometimes, the computer gets really hot because the "ventilation" (cooling) system (fan, etc.) is not working properly. Normally, if it gets too hot, i.e. to an unacceptable level, the system will shut down. Or, it will catch on fire.
Yes, it's known that some battery will get too hot ... and potentially damage the system. So, if you already know that the cooling system is working properly, then try replacing the battery.

My touch pad not working probably .


Adel Heider,

You may want to first download the driver and install it into the system from the link below.

Erratic Pointer Movement


Here are some easy steps to take to determine the problem with a touch pad demonstrating erratic pointer movement:
  1. Get the latest driver from support.dell.com - Most problems can be corrected with a simple driver download. This should always be one of the first steps when diagnosing any touch pad problem.
  2. Check for hand and finger placement - The most common cause of random pointer movement is that the touch pad senses a finger or part of the hand near the surface of the device.
    • Have the customer attempt to use the touch pad normally but to pay attention to the location of his or her hands and fingers. Are any straying too close to the touch pad?
    • Adjust the Touch Sensitivity and TouchCheck settings in the Touch Pad Settings section of the Dell Touchpad Properties.
  3. Try an external mouse - Does this problem happen with an external mouse attached?
    • The Device Select section of the Dell Touchpad Properties has options to enable or disable the touch pad or external mouse. Try several combinations of these settings.
    • If the problems only occur when the touch pad is enabled and do not occur any time a mouse or other external device is used, then the issue is related to the touch pad.
  4. Check for mechanical problems - If the problem cannot be corrected by adjusting the settings mentioned above and only occurs with the touch pad enabled, then this could indicate a mechanical problem.
    • Press down on the palm rest on first the left side of the touch pad and then the right. See if the cursor starts moving on its own.
    • Run Dell 32-bit Diagnostics and try to recreate the problems there. If either of these situations occur, then replace the palm rest.

No Pointer Movement


No pointer movement from the touch pad (or track stick, if available) usually is the result of one of two things: The touch pad has been disabled in the driver interface, or the touch pad cable is damaged or disconnected. Follow the steps below to determine the problem.
  1. Connect an external mouse - In either situation, an external mouse should still function. If it does not, try booting into Safe Mode and testing both devices again.
  2. Enable the touch pad in the driver settings - Using the external mouse (or key strokes if no mouse is available), go into the Dell Touchpad Properties. Go to the Device Select section and enable the touch pad. If already enabled, get the latest driver from support.dell.com.
  3. Test the device in Dell 32-bit Diagnostics - To eliminate a potential software problem, run the Dell 32-bit Diagnostics and test the device here.
  4. Check for mechanical problems - As a last resort, press down on the palm rest where the touch pad connector is located on the system board. If the pointer reacts in some way, then the cable may just need to be reseated. Otherwise, replace the palm rest.

Cq60 frozen mouse pad


Since you don't seem to want to help us in helping you, by being more detailed about your mouse, or mouse pad, problem, I will give you some general advice:

- This is a laptop, yes?
- It has one of those little areas where you can use your finger, instead of a mouse?
- Look in Device Manager, or even in the Mouse option in Control Panel, and see if you have a mouse configured for your laptop, in addition to the built-in finger pad for use as a mouse.
- If you find there are two separate devices, one for the laptop-supplied mouse square, or rectangle, with the buttons on the bottom, for use instead of a mouse, and one for an external mouse, then make sure you have designated the built-in pad for use as a mouse. If, however, you want to use an external mouse, then you do the opposite, and ensure that the external mouse is selected as the device you wish to use for a mouse, and disable the built-in mouse/finger pad software, so that you do not have a conflict.

One or the other must be primary, and the one not primary must be disabled, or your laptop must be told not to use that other one.

Apparently - again, because you gave us absolutely no details - there is a hardware conflict and the laptop doesn't know which device to use, so it is not using either, and you're stuck without the benefit of any pointing device.

All the work you need to do with device manager and control panel must be done with keystrokes, and for that you must use Windows' Help to learn which keys will do what. Usually the four arrow keys, near the numeric pad, along with Page Up and Page Down, and the Tab button, or Shift+Tab, to go backwards, are all you might need to reset things the way they need to be set.

I hope you understand that absent any details at all, the only advice you will get from anyone here, is going to be educated guesswork.

Best of luck to you.

Cheers!

Mouse doesn't work. touchpad works fine. lenovo G470


LOL, go into the mouse and touch pad properties and make sure you don't have the mouse disabled or blocked.

Does the point work from the touchpad when you have the usb mouse plugged in? If not you have the mouse pointer disabled. There might be a button at the top of the touch pad in the middle that you press to toggle the mouse pointer. There could also be a set of keystrokes you hit to toggle the mouse. For example I just worked on one last week where you had to Press and Hold the Alt key then hit the F6 key. Function Key F6 had the icon of a finger inside a square which represented the touchpad.

Click Start/Control Panel and look at the mouse and touchpad properties. There may be settings where you can disable one if the other is present.

My mouse pad and two click bars do not work? a wireless mouse does work though. why isnt it reading my finger across the pad when i want to use it instead of the wireless mouse?


You may have it disabled. Press and hold the "fn" key then and press the key that has a symbol for the touchpad on it. For my satellite it is the F9 key. Then give it a shot. It should work.

Touchpad not working


First check: Control Panel -> Mouse -> TouchPad On/Off

Second check for a button near the mouse pad, often there are buttons that will enable/disable the touchpad

Thrid use the shortcut key FN+F9(or what ever F key that is used by your laptop) to disable/enable the TouchPad.

Fourth try this software: http://www.kingzm.com/eng/files/download/MouseManager.zip

Fith
- Select Start, Settings, Control panel.
- Open System, click on Hardware, and Device Manager.
- Expand "Mice and other pointing devices", and double click on the entry below, that may be called "HID-Compliant mouse", or "Alps Pointing Device".
- Under "Device usage", choose "Do not use this device in the current hardware profile (disable)", and click OK.
