Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook
When I tap on my mouse 'touch' pad (weither I'm minimizing/maximizing a screen, clicking on "Enter", or clicking in a 'field') the (current) screen will "go" smaller/larger...but the cursor won't display in the field I'm clicking in. This may occur several times in a row...or may occur only once... Initially my computer was hit by a virus (I think) so I 'dumped' everything and did a total 'restore'. All other issues that I had, prior to the restore (slowness, mouse and screen freezes, etc) are non existant...the mouse (touchpad is the only issue that remains). Is there a "fix" out there for this...?? This problem is very annoying!! Thanks, Bob
If you know where the touchpad/mouse driver is located on a recovery disk, I would 'delete' the mouse via the control Panel, reboot and see if Win will reinstall the driver from the restore partition or, ask for a disk as a source and you have to know where that driver is on the optical disk.
I would locate the drivers on your recovery disks before you delete the current device.
Alternately, you might check Toshiba's support section for a touchpad driver for your OS and system and burn it onto a removable disk or thumb drive that you give to Win as a destination if asked.

Click Start/Control Panel and
look for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sure
you don't have the touchpad disabled.
Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on the button that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.
Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upper left hand corner of the touchpad.
Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key to hit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents the touchpad.
Download and reinstall the touch pad drivers.
Get online and got to
www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support"
(without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look
for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when
requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.
