Acer Aspire 3304WLMi keypad and mousepad not working

Really weird... computer was functioning fine... then "out of nowhere" the mouse pad and keys stopped working. I plugged in an external mouse and was able to manuver around, but still no key board function. Control panel says the keyboard and mouse are "working properly". Did I accidently press a key sequence that locked the keypad/mousepad??

Help anyone know anything about this?

Laptop screen frozen;arrow wont move;cant type in user name.ACER Aspire


The appeal to any laptop is the ease of portability of the machine, and an Acer laptop is no different. With an integrated mouse pad, these computers can be quite the boon to those looking to have their technology on the go, but a number of issues can afflict Acer laptops, including unresponsive mouse pads. Fortunately, a few clicks of the keyboard and some driver downloads can alleviate most Acer mouse pad problems.

Take a close look at the Acer laptop mouse buttons. Make sure the exterior of the buttons are clean and that there is no grime around the edges and crevasses of the Acer buttons. Dirt on top of the mouse pad can result in slower performance or an unresponsive experience, while grime around the sides of the mouse buttons can cause problems with the pressing and depressing of the mouse. Is there any way your mouse pad has been turned off? Check into this possibility. On an Acer laptop, hitting the "Function" (Fn) key and "F7" on the key board will result in the mouse pad being switched off. Hence, you may have hit this function and your mouse pad may not actually be broken or require any repair. Hitting the "Fn" button and the "F8" key on the Acer keyboard will result in the mouse pad being turned back on again. Click on the "Printers and Other Hardware" option on your PC. This is an alternative method to the above. At this point, examine the menu that comes up and click on the button at the top that reads "Device Settings." You should then see an option to click on your Acer mousepad. Highlight this option and click "OK." Launch your Web browser and go to the official Acer website. http://www.acerpanam.com/ The above steps may not have worked, so downloading new drivers for your mouse may be necessary. Select your country of origin, then click on "Support." You will be asked to click on your country again. After you do so, click on the link that says "Drivers and Downloads" on the left sidebar. Select your product line ("Notebooks") as well as your specific Acer computer model, and then hit "Search." Click on the link that says "Touchpad drivers." Your Acer computer may only require new drivers for your mousepad. Download the .exe file and run it to install the contents to your Acer computer. Restart your Acer computer after fully completing the download and installation process. Once the restart process has completed, the driver installation will be complete and your mouse should work again.

Need help with keypad and mouse not responsive. While visiting my my 78 year old dad he took it upon himself to try to turn off my notebook acer aspire 3000 while I was away from it. He said he just...


make sure you have the correct mouse selected control panel mouse hardware
might have to uninstall the drivers then reinstall the drivers
control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options and hardware under hardware you can troubleshoot or select properties under driver you can update driver,rollback driver or uninstall and under hardware you can troubleshoot
in xp
you could run the check disk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive

hope this helps

Acer 4720z mousepad not working


You may have a function key that can enable/disable it or a setting in the control panel > mouse > pointing devices. Or possibly a BIOS setting to enable/disable.
