The install is fairly easy. You just need to be patient as you 'pop' the case cover to put the keyboard in. Average PC knowledge and you got it. Remember, be patien! If you are opening the case and it seems stuck, check to make sure all the screws are removed. Thier are some hidden screws in some models. Good luck.

Amilo MS2212 power input


If by power input you mean where you plug in the AC adpater. No, you will have to completely separate the top and bottom of the case. This means usually unplugging the cables for touch pad keyboard, be careful. Often they are on a dongle. but some are soldered to the main-board and difficult to replace.

How di make my mouse work


usb mouse or mouse bad ?

Look at the type of mouse you have.

To date, there are three types of mice: the USB mouse, the PS/2 mouse and the Bluetooth mouse.


USB mice connect with a USB adapter, which has a rectangular shape. Conversely, the PS/2 mouse uses a PS/2 adapter, which is round.


Finally, there's the Bluetooth mouse, which has no external adapters.

Plug the mouse into your machine.


Now, how you do this will depend on the mouse you're using.

With a USB mouse, simply plug your device into your laptop's USB adapter, which will also be rectangular in shape.


For PS/2 mice, you'll need to plug it into a PS/2 adapter. Plug your mouse into the PS/2 end then plug the other end into your laptop's USB adapter.

And for Bluetooth mice, no plugging is required.

Install the mouse drivers.


If your mouse is not plug-and-play, you're going to need to install its drivers. To do this, insert the CD or diskette that came with your device.

The installation should occur automatically.


Pair your mouse, if using a Bluetooth mouse.

At this stage, non-Bluetooth mice are ready to be used.


However, if you are installing a Bluetooth mouse, you must perform one additional step: pairing it to your machine.


To achieve this, use your laptop's touchpad and right-click on your Windows screen. Select the option "Pair Device." From there, follow the on-screen instructions to sync your mouse with yourcomputer.



Place your mouse onto a mouse pad. Before using your mouse, you need to place it onto a mouse pad.

This should be done for all types of mice, whether they are wireless or trackball.

Otherwise, movement will be difficult



mouse pad


Examine your mouse pad.

Dirt and grime can affect performance and slow down mouse sensitivity, if not shut it down altogether.


Make sure the surface of the track pad is clean and that there is nothing that has managed to get beneath it or around any trackball buttons that could affect the pressing and depressing of the component.


Check to see if your mouse pad has been turned off.

If the Fn (Function) button at the bottom left of the keyboard is pressed in conjunction with some other key on the keyboard it can result in the disabling of the mouse pad.


To enable your mouse pad on a Windows PC go to the Control Menu.

Under the Printers and Other Hardware option, click on Mouse.

Then, click on the tab on the top of the pop-up menu that says Device Settings.

The touch pad for your computer should come up as a selectable option. Click on it and you will see the option to enable your device, then click OK. If this does not work,


Check the manufacturer of your laptop (for example, Toshiba) and then navigate to their official website. Find an area for Software and Drivers, and move on to that area.


Enter your laptop number (check your documentation/manuals and/or the bottom of the computer) and look through the drivers that are presented as a result of this number input.


It could be that your mouse pad simply needs updated drivers. Find the driver that corresponds to your computer and mouse pad (for example, most Acer laptops use a Synaptics touch pad).


Then, click on download.

Once the drivers have downloaded, double click them to ensure they install, restart your laptop, and your mouse pad should be working again.


hope this helps

How do I disabled the touch pad and only use an external mouse and the keyboard on the lap top?


You do not have to actually disable the touch pad on this laptop to use an "external" mouse. Just plug in your mouse and it will install the drivers if needed and viola, your good to go. If you insist on disabling your touch pad however, you can do that by double tapping the top left hand corner, when you do this correctly, a little orange light will show and the screen will show a notification the the touch pad is disabled. To enable the pad back on, just repeat the same step you used to disable, and the on screen notification will indicate the touch pad is enabled!

The cursor jumps backward in text. It jumps several lines up and down.It also does not respond to a simple left tap when I need it to open or close wish to delete something. I am not accidently doing...


Replace the mouse with a known good working one.
If you are not using a mouse (bad news) the touch pad may be failing.
In that case, an easy test and fix is to disable it in "Control Panel" then install a mouse in the USB Port.

If the problem is corrected then it is your touch pad.

Here is a link to the manual from Dell. FREE!

See Page 42 on disabling the Touch Pad.

Go to EBay and insert "6000 Dell Inspiron touch pad". It's cheap but difficult to replace.

Touch pad faulty and cursor jumps and cannot read emails, or type replies, using external mouse, but cursor will wandering. Less tha one year old.


Clean your Pad with a moist wet tissue and dry.
In Control Panel -> Devices manager -> uninstall the mouse/pad driver and either use detect new plug-and-play hardware via the top of the tree in the device manager listing (eg. you Computer name) context menu or simply reboot to force a new re-install of the driver for your Pad and Mouse and see if it solves the problem.
If your Pad is the Synaptic type, install your Netbook driver for the Pad.
Hope that re-installing the driver and Pad utility solve your issue let me know how you go.
ps. Worst case, your Aspire One should still be under manufacturer warranty.

Touch pad not working


If Windows service pack 1 - doesnot all recent drivers and will not recognize your touch pad and even keyboard. 
Try to boot on Safemode. 
Just press on F8 when your start your computer - and connect an usb mouse and try to install the touch pad drive manually. 
Then boot on normal mode and install your other drivers.. 
It is recommended to update quickly your os to Service pack 2 or 3 for best performance of your computer.

Touch pad driver.


Uninstall the driver from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drive automatically. If this doesn't work, check the touch pad connection, they will sometimes work loose ar get a little dirt/corrosion build up. The connection is under the keyboard. At this point, if it's still not working, then it has failed and will need replaced.

Touch Pad Problems


Check for new drivers for the touch pad out on Gateway's website and maybe check in BIOS to be sure that when you plug in an external mouse it doesn't disable the touch pad. Some laptops only let you do one or the other. Also if there is any software for the touchpad aside from drivers try reinstalling that also.
