Acer Aspire curser pad not opening programs

Hi. I can use the laptop curser pad to move the curser around on the screen, but when I tap on the pad to try to open a window, it won't do anything. Also, I put my camera card into a card reader and then to the laptop to download some pics (I have done this several times before, no problems) and the computer doesn't even recognize that I have plugged the cardreader in! This notebook is only 1 month old!!! Anyone have similar problem or suggestions? Thanks!

    Thanks! Fixed the cardreader issue, but the touch pad link says it is functioning properly, I clicked "allow all" in the start up program, which had some items stopped. Everything was on run and still no pad response for opening a window. I have contacted the mfg, with the problem. Perhaps some help there. If not, it's only over a month old, I'll just take it back. Maybe I should just do that anyway?

    Thanks so much! I actually went into the device manager, as you advised, and I thought it didn't do anything. I shut down and when I restarted everything worked just fine!! I LOVE YOU!!!!

Regarding the touchpad (curser pad), there maybe a problem with your touch pad driver not working or starting up. Check in "msconfig" (you can click on start and run, then type msconfig to bring it up) and click on the startup tab to check which of the startup items are not working.

Also regarding the card reader, i believe the drivers are not installed. Check in Device Manager (click on start /control panel /system icon /device manager) and see what is listed under "other devices"

    The reason the cursor pad does not open apps is because of the drivers. Most likely it is called "synaptics" or something.



    Can you give me the full model of your laptop? I may be able to guide you to downloading the drivers i am talking about to slve your problem. if not, it may be a hardware problem in whcih case it would be advisable to take the unit back to the reseller.

I have a new laptop brand is acer programmed by Windows 8 I can not unlock the screen curser when trying to inser password but the curser also will not move to type the password and is frozen


Hi Charlotte, i hope i understood properly, but it appears that you have a possible issue with the keyboard & or the touchpad. As this is a new unit then the only advice to give is to contact Acer tech support (unit is under warranty) who should be able to guide you through the issue.

Hi, on the acer aspire one comp i have, I am having trouble with the pointer to work. I guessing i might have disabled the touch pad, not sure how to enable it again.


Some laptops have a touch pad lock button, so when typing you don't move the curser or click something and mess **** up lol. Anyways, look on your laptop or in the user mannual for that option.

If you do not, then this works in Windows XP and Vista. Go to Control Panel> Mouse> Settings tab of the device Click <Enable> (or <Disable> to disable)

You can navigate with your arrow keys.

Acer aspire touchpad over sensitive


Hi,
Your laptop should have software pre-installed for your touchpad. This should probably be in the Control Panel. Once you find the software there should be options to change the sensitivity. Hope I helped.

How can I stop my curser from jumping around whilst typing ?


Hello
Most probably because your 'Touch Pad Mouse' is touched by your palm (hand or something) while you are typing. Avoid contact with the mouse touch pad while typing.
Option 2:
If you have a centre moveable mouse on your laptop, start using it and disable the 'Touch pad mouse'
Best of luck!

Keyboard curser bounces around


Are you bumping the touch pad while you type? This may be causing the curser to move around. This laptop is known for its sensitive touch pad.

Acer aspire 5520 startup problem


Michelle-

I had the same problem with the cursor jumping around. My cousin bought the same computer and had the same problem! What she told me to do was go to the touchpad icon on the bottom right. Then click tapping and then check the box that says "tap off when typing."
It seems to have worked for us.
