Use an usb mouse to select control panel and then select device management. From there you need to select the mouse and from there select the mouse and right click on it. Select to uninstall the device. Then close all screens and shut down computer. Unplug the usb mouse and restart the computer. If after it completes loading and it doesn't work the you will need a new touch pad. But if it does work it means windows had an corrupt update which caused the problem. Thanks Igor!
If you are using XP, check your mouse settings under Control Panel. Make sure that your Touch Pad is enabled. If it is but it still won't work, have a mouse plugged into a USB port that will work correctly. Then download the latest driver from the Acer site for your touchpad. Uninstall the driver that is currently being used by your system. Then install the updated driver that you downloaded. This should allow you to use your Touch Pad. If not, you may have to take your laptop in for servicing.
the touch pad could have simply failed, most OS will interpret the mouse pad as a mouse to make it work, so if its gone its most likely not working, I mouse attached to a usb or one of the ps 2 connections might give you a mouse back temp you can replace most mouse pads. hope this helps
I couldn't find an answer online, I have a Toshiba satellite with Vista and the clicking wasn't working on the pad. I found the answer....
open control panel...
hardware and sound....
the tab Device Settings
click Tapping on the left
click the check box enable tapping
and for everyone with problems with nothing working on the pad at all hold down the FN key next to the control key and press F9
