Question about Acer Aspire 5742 Notebook
I have an Acer 5742 laptop purchased in May 2011. All of a sudden a few days ago, the multi-gesture touchpad lost some of its functions, namely the 'swipe page setting' which allows you to scroll back to previously viewed webpages instead of having to tap on the back button at the top left of the screen. Also, the 'rotation' and 'zooming' functions no longer work although when you try to perform these tasks, the pointer does change as if it is about to perform these tasks, although nothing actually happens. I have gone onto the control Panel and looked at the Elan Smart Pad multi-finger settings to check that these functions are enabled and they are. I even restored the default settings to make sure of this. Does anyone know what might be wrong.

Try and attach a USB mouse. Then uninstall the driver. restart your computer and reinstall the driver. Also clean with some spray to make sure there is no dirt which is causing the problem.

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.
