    The mouse key or pointer --like I mentioned before, just have the touch pad, no mouse. Thanks so much and any help would be appreciated. Had the computer turned off all night and just turned it on and I'm still experiencing the same problem.

    What do you mean by "cursor key"? That's not a standard key description.

Okay. Now I take it that the button is stuck in the depressed position? That's a physical (hardware) problem. You might be able to pop it back up again by attaching a fairly sticky piece of tape to it and pulling up on it, then carefully removing the tape. If this works, try not to press so hard on the button. If it doesn't work, you can either get the touchpad assembly replaced (not cheap), or just use a regular mouse (PS/2 or USB) with the notebook.

I've just bought a new Acer Aspire 5742Z and the smart pad has suddenly stopped working. Any idea whether it's likely to be a hardware or software issue and how to fix it? I've tried...


Hi jennylewry...


To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
D. Sony Vaio Users: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Double click the Mouse icon.
Look at the top left hand side of the page, at the top and make sure that the "Tapping" box is unchecked, if it is checked then, you will uncheck it.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Every time I boot my EEE PC the touchopad is disabled. I plug in a USB mouse, enable the Elan smartpad through the properties of the Elan smartpad and it works ok until I reboot again. How do I enable it...


Usually there is a FN key that will enable the touchpad. I have EEPC and mine is the little blue FN key (usually next to the CTRL and Windows Key) + one of the number keys. Look for a little blue symbol that looks like your touchpad.

As for it being disabled every time you start, I find that very weird. Sometimes installing a wireless mouse, installs software that tells the system to disable the touchpad, so that the 2 don't conflict when using the mouse.

My mouse is not working on my laptop, it wont move


Hello debbiestar34,
Typically on a laptop computer there is an extra set of keys called the function keys. You will notice these keys are identified (usually) by a different colour of text on the keys of your keyboard.
You can probably find a key labeled "Fn" or "Function" in the bottom left of your keyboard, between the "Ctrl" and "Alt" buttons. Once you've found that key, look at your other keys and you should see one that somewhat resembles the touchpad on your computer or a simple rectangle with a mouse cursor inside it.
If you've found both of those keys, start by pressing and holding the "Fn" key, then press the one for your touchpad then release both keys. That should work.

How to unlock cursor


You can't lock or unlock a cursor. What you have is a problem with your touchpad. Some computers have a little switch (many times a button near the touchpad or a keystroke combo of the FN key + a special function key that turns the touchpad on or off.
See if you can find that combo--there should be a picture of a touchpad on one of the special function keys.
Othewise, you will have to use an external mouse.

On-screen cursor jumps around while typing. When I am typing I end up typing in the middle of previous typed lines. I have a Averatec laptop running Windows XP)


Try using the function key to disable the touchpad. Most times they are sensitive and like to jump when you are typing as your wrists rub or pass over the touchpad.

Touchpad locked


Hi don't know what OS you are using. I have a 6200 and I upgraded (big mistake) to Vista. I have had this problem when running Vista and by pure chance and out of desparation I did the following and it worked. However if the Fn F9 worked then please let me know.

On boot up press Del to enter system setup
I then went across to the Exit screen and selected Load Optimal Defaults

I then saved the changes and re-booted and it works fine. Could be pure chance

Dell Cursor Typing Blinking Problem


this is because you must deactivate your touchpad. you can do this by holding the Fn key and pressing the F* key that shows a picture of a touchpad in the same color as the Fn.
or you can go to control panel and turn it off in the mouse settings. but just attaching a mouse will allow the touchpad to stay active and therefore still be sensitive enough for your hand to "tap" th cursor.;
Good luck and pls rank this response! :D
