This should be an easy fix...after many months of trying to disable touchpads on machines that did not have the one button disable feature either in the control panel or on the touchpad itself I discovered it was one of the function keys.
Press function (FN) and the "F7" key...press again to re-enable. Good luck!
you can try using the function key ( fn ) and the touch pad key on my acer it is the F7 key hold the fn key and press and release the touch pad key that will turn the touch pad mouse off and on also goto control panel / mouse and try switch primary and secondary see if that will make the right button work if not its probly hardware related and your best bet is to keep the external mouse going rather than fixing that one
plug in a usb mouse, go to control panel>system>harware>device manager and click on the + sign next to pointing devices. Right click the touchpad and click on uninstall. Reboot the laptop and unplug the usb mouse. This should pick up the touchpad as new hardware and reinstall it. Hopefully this will resolve the problem.
What operating system are you running? All I could find was a manual for your model: http://tinyurl.com/6gc7pl
If you are using Windows XP, you might try going to Control Panel -> Mouse -> On the first tab (Buttons) check "Switch primary and secondary buttons." then hit "Apply".
Try left-clicking (currently assigned to be the right-click) on your Start button and see if the menu with "Explore All Users" on the very bottom opens. If it does, then your touchpad is most likely defective and would have to be fixed (www.fixmyacer.com). If the menu doesn't come up, then it is a software issue and is 100% fixable.
go to my computer, right click, properties, device manager, look down list for mice and pointing devices, click '+' sign, you will see your touchpad, right click select uninstal, then restart notebook it will reinstall itself and should be working as normal.
Double click the icon in the toolbar. Click the device settings tab and then hit setting. select buttons in the list on the left side. Hit the plus sign(maximize) and select scroll up button action....scroll down button action...Etc. For each action select what you want it to do and just hit apply and move to the next. Once you have selected the action for scroll up, down , left, and right hit apply again just to be sure and try it. It should work. I just did it on my 5630 but Im assuming it works the same.
