Which OS are you using? Driver? Try removing the battery and usb. Reboot, Install battery , install usb. Is the annoying sound the usb disconnect?

    Thanks Max. I tried this, didn't help though. The annoying sound is indeed the usb disconnect sound. I removed the battery and usb, rebooted, still the same. I am using Windows 7 Home Premuim, with an Intel CORE i3 CPU Proccesor. If you have any other sugestions, please...oh, and i tried the bellow suggested sollutions. does not solve the problem. thanks

    The drivers are up to date? Then I would try another Mouse and USB, perhaps it is defective. The computer is "seeing" a disconnect/reconnect?

    thanks a lot, I am using a different mouse, which seemed to have solved the problem. thanks again.

SOURCE: acer aspire 5517 touch pad not working.

Also on this laptop you can hit Fn+F6 to enable or disable the touchpad as well there should be a touchpad disable button to the right of the power button that can be very easy to accidentally press.

The cursor will not move and I cannot use the laptop at all.


The cursur moves from the sensory pad, if the pad went out the cursur will not move.. I would start by installing an external wireless mouse or even a basic plug in mouse to the usb port and see if you can cntrol the cursor then. Cheap wireless mouses with a small included usb donggle can be used in place of the sensory pad cursor

Cursor won't move on my Acer laptop


Dear Friend,

On your desktop press the following key conbination: Fn + F7 if not, there must be a problem with your mouse pad. It might also be that your OS takes time to load or freeze and it make it look that the mouse is not working. You can also try and external mouse.

Good Luck!!!

The Cursor of my acer is stuck and it cant move any further. what can i do?


Hi

If the cursor is stuck/frozen when we use the touchpad it can be solved by the following method.
Switch off the laptop, disconnect it from power, remove the battery and keep pressing the Power switch for 30 seconds.
Then reconnect battery and the external power in that order and power on the laptop. the cursor will be moving again.

I have a Toshiba LapTop Windows 7 My granddaughter pushed keys and now i can't get the cursor to move. I have tried shutting down and it is still frozen in the middle .


Are you using the trackpad to manipulate the cursor, or are you using an external mouse?

If you're using the trackpad, it may be as simple as using the Fn keys and the corresponding F keys at the top of the keyboard to enable the trackpad feature again. If that doesn't work, try plugging in an external mouse via USB port to see if that works.
If you're using an external mouse, then try to see if the cursor moves while using the trackpad.

Hopefully one of these options will give you control back over your cursor again.

My cursor is frooze and wont move? i have taken the battery out but its still in the same place.. any ideas?


On many laptops, the touch mouse can be deactivated so that a external mouse can be used. It is typically a 2 key combination using the "function (Fn)" key.

Look for any keys on your laptop that seem to have a little mouse icon and press that key along with the function key.

If this does not resolve the issue ... you can also try an external mouse and see if that moves the cursor.

Mouse cursor wont move


most laptops have a way to enable/disable the touchpad for those that use an external mouse or do alot of typing and encouter the overactive touchpad.

hold the "FN" key and press the corospinding function "f button" to enable it.

the function key number will be different depending on your laptop and you should also check the laptop base for a button that may be specifically for this purpose.

Good Luck and Happy Hunting!! :)

Cursor moving erratically


Sounds like your internal mouse maybe be malfunctioning and due to the pressure on the spacebar is causing the erratic movement.

To fix this you can enter your BIOS with the F2 key at startup.

Continue through until you find some input options to disable the internal mouse.

Erratic cursor


It happens with both? Sounds like it may be a driver or motherboard issue.

Check the HDD for errors with Checkdisk (Start -> Run -> cmd -> Ok -> chkdsk /f
Try redownloading the touchpad/mouse drivers from the Toshiba site
