    In addition to my problem above I can use the buttons below the touchpad to click and the touchpad moves the mouse but the pressing on the touchpad to "click" or "double click" and not using the buttons does not work. Any thing else with this? I tried the restore but couldn't get back far enough to restore back to where I need to.

If Fn+F7 did not work, I would suggest that you plug in a USB mouse and then go to the Control Panel.

From there, you may want to check the Printers and Other Hardware section and then click on the section called Mouse.

If there is an option to enable the touchpad, I would suggest that you check that it is enabled.

If that doesn't work, you may want to try restarting your computer and if that still doesn't work, perhaps you should try doing a System Restore to a time when it did work.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

    Have you gone into CMOS setup and turn the touchpad on then exit, then enter it again and enable the touchpad?

The mouse pad has stopped working on my sons emachines e430 how can i get it start working again???????


Hi there,

At the top of the keyboard there is a touchpad toggle button (enables and disables the touchpad) that may automatically be disabled at boot time.

You will see just above the keyboard three oval silverish buttons the first one on the left is to enable or disable the touchpad.

Here's the official site for the manual showing all the function keys and features:

How do I turn off the touch pad on my Acer Aspire 5742 laptop


Hello,

Thank you for using fixya. My name is Carlo.

There are two ways that you can do to turn off/on the touch pad in your acer aspire.

1. Press FN + F7. It will turn off the touchpad and will turn on once you press the same buttons again.

2. If the buttons do not work. You can do this:

1. Go to control panel>hardware and devices>Devices and Printers>Mouse
2. CLick on the last setting on the right.
3. Click on Disable in the Mouse Properties.
5. Click OK.


Just go to the same area when you want to enable your touchpad again.

I hope this helps.

Carlo

How do I turn the synaptic touch pad off on my acer aspire


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!

The touch pad has suddenly stopped working on my laptop so that I can not move the cursor around the screen. Have tried turing laptop on and off again.


There is probably some type of touchpad disable button on your laptop. You didn't mention the make or model of the laptop, but HP's for example, have a small button above the touchpad with a blue light. If the light is off, the touchpad is disabled.

Look around on the laptop and there is probably just a button that needs to be pressed to enable the touchpad
