Acer Aspire 3004 - Random reboots; random mouse program select w/o mouse click

Ref: Acer Aspire 3004LCI Laptop Model LXA5505A696... Loaded with WinXP Home Edition & MS Office 2000, among others. Laptop periodically reboots for no apparent reason. Occurs with power supply pluged in and when also when on batery only. Computer occaisonally seems to "auto select" an option when mouse pointer passes over a "select" button in a program. Happens with selections in WinXP Home Edition OS options and various installed applications. Does so without a mouse button being pressed. In MS Word, display sometimes "jumps" to a different part of document without user input. Been careful not to brush mouse pad; still happens. Appears to be hardware problem, unless there's something peculiar about mouse settings on this particular laptop model. Couldn't find anything in WinXP or propriatary Acer hardware mouse settings to account for or change this behavior. Thanks, GreySteel

    I appreciate your suggestion and tried it. WinXP did indeed reinstall the touchpad driver after I deleted it and rebooted. Upon examination, the driver as reported in "Hardware/Device mgr" showed to be working properly. However, the problem remains of random, spontaneous program initiation when the mouse pointer passed over a selection box. I also tried setting the "palm sensitivity" slider all the way to the right into the area where there was a warning that the mouse might not respond. No help, problem remains.

    I thought it might just be my "magnetic personality" that the mouse pad didn't like, but other users have had the same problem with this computer. I'm out of ideas??? It may be a hardware problem. Any thoughts appreciated.

    Thanks,
    GreySteel

The rebooting could well be a driver error, and you pc is set to reboot instead of stopping and showing the code numbers on a blue screen togive any clues, but it sounds as if it could be the touchpad driver. Go to my computer icon, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look down the list for mice and other pointing devices and click the '+' sign and it will probably read synaptics touchpad, right click on it and select uninstal. Restart your notebook and the touchpad will be installed automatically and should, if the driver is not corrupt perform as normal.

    i would suggest going to the Acer web site and downloading the ltest drivers for your touchpad, then if you still have a problem, its the mechanics of the pad that are at fault.

My acer aspire 5742z laptop keeps shutting down at random points. I don't think its overheating as the bottom of it is not hot enough. Have you heard of this issue before? Thanks


Hi!
Issues like this mostly caused by a program or simply a corrupted operating system updates. I would suggest we try restoring the laptop back in time when the issue is not yet present. We can achieve this by performing System Restore, if I'm not mistaken, this laptop has Windows 7. Please click on the Start button, then go to All Programs> Accessories> System Tools and then finally System Restore. Please select a date when the issue is not yet present. Then, please reboot the laptop.
Hope this helps.

Try going into control panel & find the mouse section. See if you can adjust the sensitivty down. You may have a program built in from acer to adjust this too. I reccomend turning off the tap feature on the mouse pad. When they get old they get real touchy. If turning the sensitivity down doesn't work, you can try & see if there's an updated driver or re-install the old one. If all else fails,it's time to head to ebay to find the touch pad.

Cursor continually jumps all over when trying to type


Touch pad mouse.
This unit has a "seamless touchpad with four-way integrated scroll button".
Yours is probably faulty, causing the cursor to be random.
Try disabling it and connecting a USB mouse.

Cursor (pointer) Locks Up


Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mouse and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad listing and select uninstall, and then restart the pc.

In Vista start control panel>classic view, then device manager

The touchpad will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal

USB Port Problem


Did something happen to the port setting? To find out, right click on My Computer, select properties, then select Device Manager. Does the Universal Serial Bus controller show up with no X's? Did it show up under the ? Other Devices section? You may need to uninstall and then reboot. Windows will discover new hardware and should find the driver for you.

That's my thoughts, so far. Except for the random shutdown. I am reminded of a guy who brought his system in with USB problems, no Internet, and a host of other problems. I discovered that almost all of his services had been disabled. Services and Applications, Services, also under Manage. I put my laptop on the same screen and restored his settings to match mine. Good luck in your hunt.

Acer Aspire 3004 keyboard and touchpad error


Just resolved same problem on Acer Aspire 5000 by removing the battery, then goto device manager and disable "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" you can then put your existing battery back into the latop with any problems with the keyboard and touchpad. Mad solution I know but it worked for me
