You tried to reinstall the keyboard and touchpad hardware parts? Have you had ANY damage? Spill? OS upgrade? If you replaced the hardware is the ribbon cables connect properly?

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.

Laptop touchpad not working


Directly above the touch pad is a button (sometimes has a light around it red off, blue on). This button turns the touch pad off and on. Once you press the button, give the laptop a second or two to recognize the device and then try it. If this does not work look under device manager, to see if there is anything next to your mouse devices. If there is an explation point or anything you probably need to reload the drivers. If there is a red X, this will normally indicate the touch pad has been disconnected physically. If you are somewhat hardware savy, remove the keyboard and check/reconnect the touch pad.

Hope this helps.

p.s. no I did not give instructions on how to take apart the computer or remove the keyboard. If you do not know how to do this, I would not recomend that you do.

I am typing off the laptop keyboard itself and as I am typing it jumps back into a previous sentence or previous paragraph


Most likely culprit:

Do you have the finger touch-pad turned on?
Chances are you're brushing up against that, high static will increase the likely hood.
I don't even have to touch mine.
If you have a button to turn it off - great! Turn it off while you're typing.
I've seen some that lack this feature. I'm not sure if it can be disabled in the task bar; or if you'd need to disable the device through the hardware/device manager.
Another option is to just make sure your hands/wrists are elevated -- They really should be anyway to avoid carpal tunnel.

Other possiblilities:
Hitting the: home, pg up, pg dn, and/or end keys -- Arrow keys as well, will do it.
Some sort of software malfunction. -Perhaps, glitch or compatability issue.
Virus/someone's accessing your computer - Usually they don't just play around with your sentences though. ;-)
Broken keyboard.


Hope this helps!

Emachines e725 Touchpad Not Working


The eMachines E725 has a built in switch to toggle the touchpad on or off by the touch of a button. Look at the button to the left of the main power switch. You'll notice the icon looks like a hand touching a rectangle - or touchpad. if this button is lit up, the touchpad is turned off. simply press the button to toggle the touchpad back on. The light on the button should now be off.
It's that simple.

Re toshiba techra 8000


Some laptops have a touch pad between the keyboard and the edge of the laptop. This works like a mouse except you slide your finger around the pad to move the mouse pointer and the buttons next to the touch pad are the left and right buttons.
Other laptops have a small round button in the middle of the keyboard which is a mini joystick and it is used to move the mouse pointer around, it will have a couple of mouse buttons at the botom edge of the keyboard.
You can connect a normal mouse to your laptop, it is mush easier than using the laptop's touch pad or mini joystick.

Acer Keyboard Will Not Work


try using an usb keyboard, if you can use the usb keyboard it's an hardware issue and you need to plug it to the motherboard yourself or just ask the manufacturer to do it for you.

If an usb keyboard doesn't work you have a software issue and in case it isn't a virus, all you have to do is a system restore.
