Hi,

You could try downloading and installing the touchpad driver again:

driver_touchpad_synaptics_27121B.exe

Then reboot and go to Control Panel > Mouse, and Enable it in there, and check the Hardware Device Tab also.

Hope this helps

ps I got the driver file from here.

    Yeah, Ekse has the right advice there.. The Fn + F-key shortcut is handy because you don't have a mouse to work with. If you are still uncomfortable with enabling it that way, use can use the Tab and arrow and Enter keys to navigate to the configuration also.
    Good Luck!

In your case it maybe that the mouse is disabled, this is done with a function key, FN and one of the F1- F12 keys.

make sure the mouse is not disabled.

if this doesn't solve the issue.
it may possibly be:

  1. Software issue.
  2. cut cable.
  3. broken touchpad.
  4. issue between the touchpad and motherboard.
  5. faulty motherboard..

My brother and I have the AWE01us1 chill hub. Initially it worked fine. We have a wireless microsoft mouse and USB adapter is connected to 1 of the 4 USB ports. Occasionally the mouse stops working...


When I typed AWE01us1 chill hub in my search engine I came up with Targus as the manufacturer of the chill hup not the laptop. Before buying products I would read customer rates and comments on the products. My public library has a free link to consumer reports, or Amazon.com has product ratings.

I'm also getting mixed info regarding the mouse, is the mouse wireless, stopped working, and you somehow overrode the wireless with a USB cable and that stopped working. I'm assuming the mouse worked fine before the installation of the chill hub. If you read the reviews on Amazon, I'm seeing other types of USB problems. Try returning the chill hub and purchasing another brand. You may have to call customer support for the laptop. Let me know if this was helpful.

I use a hand held mouse. How do I disable the finger mouse


If by 'finger mouse' you mean the touch pad then yes you can enable or disable it as you wish.

For Acer Aspire models you need to press and hold the 'Fn' button and then press the 'F7' button (It has blue square on it with a hand over it).

Repeat the process to enable the touch pad.

Mouse pointer drfts to the right side of the screen. I have a touch pad and a mouse button on the keyboard. Even when I connected my usb mouse that pointer drifts as well. I'm not able to control the mouse...


see if your touchpad settings have a setting that controls the sensitivity on the area around the touchpad where you rest your hands on the laptop. I forget what it's called, but most laptops have a setting to control that, so when you rest your hands on the laptop it doesn't affect mouse movement. When you rest your hands, if the sesitivity is too high, the mouse pointer will move when you place your hands to rest on that area.

Toshiba laptop touchpad click not working


Ok so here goes.... I had the same problem:

Go to the 'start' button and then hit the 'control panel' option, then click 'mouse' then go to 'Device Settings' and then to the 'settings'. When you get to this screen it shows a list on lthe left hand side choose the 'tapping' option and then ok.

Hope it works for you...it did for me.
