There are many possible fixes. To do some forensic work it would be best to know what was going on when the touch pad stopped working. It could very easily be the driver. You can see if that's it in device manager. Locate your touch pad device there and right-click on the device, choose "update driver".

Some laptops, my Toshiba for instance, have an option to configure the touchpad to disable when it senses a USB mouse or keyboard connecting. I have mine set to disable because when I'm typing on the onboard keyboard and I accidently slightly brush the touchpad, it sends the cursor all over the page and usually I lose everything I just typed.

The problem might also be a matter of a bogus setting in the Service Manager. There are a number of services that are related to your touchpad or mouse.

My Acer Aspire suddenly won't let me work on it EXCEPT with a mouse! Can't use the touch pad -- either the cursor is locked up OR it isn't even visable when I try to use the touch pad. HELP!


Check the switch on the touchpad (ususally a button on the touchpad) to make sure the pad is switched to ON.
If the switch is ON, check the status of the touchpad by going to START>ControlPanel>System>DeviceManager>Mice and other pointing devices
Click on the touchpad and make sure the Device status is "the device is working properly"
If everything checks out, you may have to reload the driver.
Let me know what you find out and we can go from there. Thanks.

Have an Acer aspire 7720-6712 laptop; pad doesn't work. downloaded drivers, still doesn't work. task bar has icon saying pad is ok


Hi,

if your pad is not working even after the driver is installed then it might me a physical problem. Better get it checked with some hardware technician.

if the service cost seems high or costly better by a optical mouse and use it. it would be comfortable rather using a touch pad.

Regards
Rudra.

I have an Acer Aspire 473OZ and the touch pad quit working. Any ideas???


Did you turn the touch pad off accidentally? To turn it back on just hit Function+F7

If that didn't work, go to Device Manager, Mice and other pointing devices, properties and check the status. If its OK, reinstall the driver, and power off the machine and reboot.

If there are no drivers visible during a reinstall, download them from the Acer website.

If all the above don't work, take it back.

If all these did not work and your laptop is under warranty, have the manufacturer replace the touchpad.
