1. Have you spilt anything on it ?
2. Are you rough on it when clicking normally.

Not to many reasons it would just suddenly stop working, unless its going out...

Cursor not showing up


Well the touchpad driver could be erased or a virus may have damaged it.
You should go to Acers website and then support and download drivers and get the right touchpad driver.

Install it and see if it works.
Use TAB to navigate for now. or use mouse keys.
This means keep pressing shift really fast and accessibility option will show up.
Use tab and space bar to navigate to MOUSE TAB and select Mouse Keys and hit enter.
Done for now you can use the numpad to operate the cursor.
Second option is to go out and buy a USB mouse.

Worst case scenario: Touchpad is damaged and needs replacing.
Or simply a cable got disconnected and needs reconnecting by taking the laptop apart
Get Your Laptop Mouse to Show Up if It Disappears
Using a laptop is as efficient as a desktop computer to complete tasks, use the Internet and talk with friends on a daily basis.
If your laptop's mouse cursor disappears, there are various tricks and solutions available to help get your mouse pointer back to resume your work and current computer tasks within minutes.
And this can be accomplished without the use of software applications or advanced computer skills.
Press "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "Delete" and choose "Task Manager" if your mouse pointer becomes available, pressing the keys simultaneously.
This will allow you to close any open programs that may be causing issues with your mouse pointer.
Plug in an external mouse to allow the computer to attempt to find the device, prompting the mouse pointer to appear which may solve the problem or allow you to temporarily work with a mouse pointer.

Reboot your computer by pressing and holding the laptop's power button for a few seconds.
This will reset your laptop's current open settings and most often allow your computer's mouse pointer to reappear.

Upgrade your laptop's video and graphic card drivers (if available) to ensure the mouse pointer disappearing or flickering is not a hardware issue.
Select "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Hardware and Sound" > "Device Manager" to view your current graphic and video settings.
Visit your device manufacturer's official website to download the most current version of your drivers.

How do I unlock the cursur on my acer aspire 5534


Does the mouse pointer move? Does the mouse work? Does the Keyboard work?

The cursor moves on keystrokes from the keyboard or from taking the mouse and pointing it and clicking in a text area.

make sure you have not turned the touchpad off. Some laptops will have a button that is located in the middle of the touchpad at the top of the touchpad that toggles the mouse pointer on and off.

Some laptops will have a set of keystrokes that toggles the touchpad on or off. Normally you will have to Press and Hold either the Alt or FN key then hit the corresponding key that controls the touchpad. Most times the correct key to hit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square box that represents the touchpad.

You may have been hijacked by a virus or infection. Boot up in Safe Mode and see if it works.
Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do notclick the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTEDRESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine

Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mouse and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad listing and select uninstall, and then restart the pc.

In Vista start control panel>classic view, then device manager

The touchpad will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal

Acer zr1


hey
please elaborate on what exactly has happened..
if by mouse pointer jammed u mean touchpad not working
then first check if it has been accidentally disabled, in acer laptops press fn and then a key in blue colour which looks like a mouse pad in the f1-f12 series.
else, try attaching an usb mouse to check if the pointer is moving or if there is a problem wid your touchpad.
if not, it could be because of a virus which has changed ur registry files, in such a case the problem gets a little more complicated where in ull have to restore file,etc etc
for further keep free to mail me @

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.....
