I think the magic combination is "Fn"+"F7". Or there is a small push switch at the top of the touchpad that turns it off. My daughter has one of these and I solved the same trouble for her, but her compy's not here now for me to check.

I turned off my touch pad to my acer aspire 5733z and it wont turn bk on


Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.


Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.


The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.


Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.


Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.

Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.


hope this helps

Acer aspire 5735 touchpad not working properly doesn't zoom


You can try updating the software for the touch pad but the most likely problem is you have a bad touch pad. Touch pads don't necessarily go all at once. You lose some functionality. In your case, it would appear you are able to to point and move the cursor. You didn't mention, does the touchpad respond when you tap it to hit ENTER instead of hitting the ENTER key itself. This is 1 area that will commonly lose function over time as well.

Tap the touch-pad toggle key once and check if the touch-pad disable indicator is off.
Then try using the touch-pad.

My dog walked on my keyboard and now my pointer wont work . its visible but the synaptics touch pad wont work


was the computer on when the dog walked across the keys? there's a good chance that the dog hit the key combination that turns the touchpad on/off. Look at your F-keys up top and try to find a symbol in blue that resembles either the square-ish touchpad and/or a touchpad with a finger pointing at it. To turn such things on/off you'd hold the Fn key(usually down by the Ctrl or Windows key) and tap the touchpad symbol F-key.

I hope that works out well for you.

Touch pad stopped working


Did you turn the touch pad off accidentally? To turn it back on just hit (Fn) Function+F7

If that didn't work, go to Device Manager, Mice and other pointing devices, properties and check the status. If its OK, reinstall the driver, and power off the machine and reboot.

If there are no drivers visible during a reinstall, download them from the Acer website.

If all these did not work and your laptop is under warranty, have the manufacturer replace the touchpad.

Touchpad curser not moving


Ok your cat stepped on the button that shuts off the touch pad lol, around the edges there is a switch that turns it on and off, some shut it off when using a mouse, to avoid hitting both at once. Peace, Gym
