Yes, depending on what mouse you have, most of the time you need to install it, if its not installed, go to the control panel, select the mouse category, This will help install the drivers. Should solve the problem. If mouse driver is installed, control panel, select mouse category, and a mouse properties box will display.. check to make sure the switch primary and secondary buttons option is not checked.

    Thanks for your impute. Unfortintinly that is not the answer I was looking for. I guess I should ask how do I stop using the mouse to click on items or double clicking on items? I only want to use the left button to click on items and use the mouse to only move the curser.

SOURCE: Acer aspire one touchpad right button not working

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

SOURCE: My touchpad will not respond when I tap it

On the bottom bar by the clock, if your computer is newer there should be a small icon that controls your mouse. Simply right click on it and check the box "tap to click" or similar. Hope this helps!
Please rate me if i am helpful.
Thank you.

Unlock cursor for acer laptop


Your laptop comes with a touch pad that acts as a mouse. Instead of connecting a mouse each time you want to use your laptop, you can use the touch pad that is integrated underneath the keyboard. This comes in handy when you are in a tight spot such as in a classroom or on an airplane. At times, you may need to unlock the laptop touch pad because someone who borrowed your laptop disabled it. It may also be locked due to a slight malfunction that you can easily fix by enabling the touch pad in your computer settings.
Click the Windows "Start" button in the bottom-left corner of your desktop. Scroll up and click "Control Panel." Choose the "Mouse" icon or type "Mouse" in the field in the upper-right corner. Click the "Enter" button and then click the "Mouse" link. Press the "Hardware" tab or the tab to the right of it that specifies the type of touch pad you have. If you are under the "Hardware" tab, highlight the touch pad in the list of devices and click the "Enable" button. If you are under the touch pad tab, click the enable button. Click the "Apply" button and then click the "OK" button. Hope this helps.

How do i turn on touch pad


You probably have a Synaptics Touchpad. What you have to do is look for the Synaptics logo(it's like a white circle on a red background) in your status bar(lower right corner of the scree, neer the clock). Double click that icon. A window called Mouse properties appears. The last tab is Device settings that also has the Synaptics Icon. If you click it you should see a list of all Synaptics devices on your laptop. Since you only have one you will only have one item in the list. Double click that item and a new Properties window will open. You have a list on the left side of that window. Select tapping and make sure Enable tapping is Checked. That should be it.Good Luck!

Touch pad doesn't work


Determine What's Wrong
laptop'smag-glass_10x10.gif touch pad basically provides the functionality of a mouse for a desktop PC, typically with two buttons located just below it acting as the left and right click buttons on a desktop computer. A touch pad may be damaged by excessive use or foreign substances such as water, dirt or food items.

Hit the "Windows" button on the keyboard and then use the right-left keys (or hit 'C') to open "Control Panel." From there, again use the right-left keys to get to "Mouse" and then hit "Return."

Use the right-left keys to toggle between the tabs and open each to investigate whether any boxes had been improperly clicked by accident that cause the touch pad to become unresponsive. But if any of these steps fail to remedy the problem, then the touch pad may need to be repaired or replaced.

Repairing/Replacing TouchpadA touch pad assembly cost $100 or more and that's not including replacement installation. Hiring a specialist to replace a damaged touch pad, including parts and labor, may easily cost $200. Unless the laptop in question is worth well over $1,000 and the touch pad is deemed a necessity, such repairs are rarely worth the cost.

Attempting to replace the touch pad without certain expertise in laptop assembly may be dangerous and/or destructive. Also, getting a replacement part that's not compatible with the laptop may have catastrophic results, including irreversible damage to the laptop.So just attach a mouse to it so you can work easily.Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

The touch pad, left & right clck buttons.


  • Hi, click on the "Start Button," next in the (right area) click on the "Control Panel." In the window there will be "listings" different categories; choose the "Mouse," from the "Hardware and Sound" click on it to open the next window. Next select the "Device Setting" button, once the window open, click on the "Setting" button just below the"highlighted" TouchPad, or Mouse. The area of your immediate concern is the "Buttons" put a [check] mark into "Enable" buttons. Try out some of the "items listed" Tapping, Virtual Scrolling... "You must click on the "Apply, OK buttons when finished." Note: Restart the computer; this will make sure the changes are correctly applied, and working properly. "Rating the solution will let me know if the problem is fixed, or you will need further assistance, thanks."

Touch pad working fine but left clicker doesnt


Usually the green means that the button is pressed. Check the touch-pad buttons for dust or dirt. If they're clean, then probably need to be repaired.

Broken Button


Hello Roinette,

It is unfortunate to know about that. However as you told that the left click button of the touch pad for you acer laptop has broken or damged, the only way to get it resolved is to get the laptop serviced. As the laptop touch pad and keypad is integrated directly with the mother board it is not possible to fix just that paricular button. The pad must be replaced. Get in touch with the acer technical support , they will replace the pad for you.

Thank you. Best of Luck.
