    Do you have both connected at once? A touchpad and a mouse? Does it work with just the touchpad alone?

USB port for wireless mouse gets hot and not working


Hi,
1-try to connect another USB peripheral like USB flash or something else,if this does happen again you have some problem with your USB chip or maybe your main board or USB cabling in your laptop (some kind of short circuit),
2-if your problem still did not solve you have some short circuit or problem with your USB device and try repair or replace the device ,
3-if your problem persist and doesn't solve even with another device you must consider this note:

some USB devices needs 500ma current mode that only available in PCs and some devices and most laptop available in the market just support 100ma USB port

Cursor not showing up


Well the touchpad driver could be erased or a virus may have damaged it.
You should go to Acers website and then support and download drivers and get the right touchpad driver.

Install it and see if it works.
Use TAB to navigate for now. or use mouse keys.
This means keep pressing shift really fast and accessibility option will show up.
Use tab and space bar to navigate to MOUSE TAB and select Mouse Keys and hit enter.
Done for now you can use the numpad to operate the cursor.
Second option is to go out and buy a USB mouse.

Worst case scenario: Touchpad is damaged and needs replacing.
Or simply a cable got disconnected and needs reconnecting by taking the laptop apart
Get Your Laptop Mouse to Show Up if It Disappears
Using a laptop is as efficient as a desktop computer to complete tasks, use the Internet and talk with friends on a daily basis.
If your laptop's mouse cursor disappears, there are various tricks and solutions available to help get your mouse pointer back to resume your work and current computer tasks within minutes.
And this can be accomplished without the use of software applications or advanced computer skills.
Press "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "Delete" and choose "Task Manager" if your mouse pointer becomes available, pressing the keys simultaneously.
This will allow you to close any open programs that may be causing issues with your mouse pointer.
Plug in an external mouse to allow the computer to attempt to find the device, prompting the mouse pointer to appear which may solve the problem or allow you to temporarily work with a mouse pointer.

Reboot your computer by pressing and holding the laptop's power button for a few seconds.
This will reset your laptop's current open settings and most often allow your computer's mouse pointer to reappear.

Upgrade your laptop's video and graphic card drivers (if available) to ensure the mouse pointer disappearing or flickering is not a hardware issue.
Select "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Hardware and Sound" > "Device Manager" to view your current graphic and video settings.
Visit your device manufacturer's official website to download the most current version of your drivers.

I have an old, early 2000-2003 "filand" brand optical mouse. It does not work on my laptop windows7 OS. says no available driver...etc...how can i get or download a driver for this mouse? i lost...


Well the problem probably is that there is no drivers for that mouse for windows 7, because if Windows 7 dose'nt find the drivers itself then there probably is no Windows 7 drivers. But you could try and search for the drivers yourself.

Wireless mouse won't work, have replace battery, rebooted laptop removed and replaced mouse connection etc. Was working fine until yesterday


Is it not working at all or is it moving erratically across the screen? If it doesn't seem to be working at all, turn off your mouse then unplug the receiver's USB cable from the laptop for about 5-10 seconds then plug it in to another USB port. It may detect a new device, just let it do the automatic installation if it asks. You should here a 'tada' or ding sound when it is plugged in. When installation is completed or about 10 seconds after you hear the sound, turn your mouse back on.

If it still doesn't work, try shutting down your laptop completely instead of just rebooting it.

If it still doesn't work after that, make sure you have a spare USB mouse available then uninstall the software for your wireless mouse or mouse/keyboard combo then reinstall it.

GE wireless optical mouse suddenly stopped working. i restarted computer and tried to reset both mouse and the receiver to no avail. also changed out batteries.


Hi, my mouse work fine since pressed simultaneously the buttons of the mouse and the receiver. Previously, I had disarm the receiver, but all was fine, so I'd arm again the receiver and plug to laptop; I'd press both buttons and mouse work. For any reasson, mouse and receiver lost conection and is necessary re-establish comunication pressed both buttons. I hope my experience (my case) to be useful to someone.

How do you connect a bluetooth mouse to this laptop?


AS far as I am aware this model did not have blue-tooth just regular
Wi Fi

If you got a blue-tooth adapter with your mouse then plug that in to an available usb port on your laptop and then install the software that should have come with the mouse.

Frozen touch mouse


Get your laptop utility CD/driver. Borrow a USB mouse and then you access the laptop driver so you can reinstall the touch pad. That should work (it worked for me).

Then before ejecting your utility disc/driver, you copy the touch pad folder and then paste it to your desktop so the next time you'll need to reinstall your touch pad, you can readily access it.
