Mouse pad not working

I have a new Advent 4489 laptop. The mouse pad is not working and I can't reinstall the driver. The hardware is corrupted, how do I get the mouse pad back? There was no damage, it just stopped working after I left the room for one minute and came back. Nobody had touched it!

    I have tried re-booting the laptop back to manufacturers settings & it still didn't help.

    I have tried uninstalling the touch pad and re-starting the computer & then updating the drivers but it won't do it! What else could you suggest? I thought of taking it back to the shop where I bought it from and trying to get them to fix it free of charge or give a replacement. I would like to try something else first to see if it works.

A mouse pad is a thing you put your mouse on....

now what you are talking about is your touchpad.

Check these first:

  • some laptops have a switch that turns off the touch pad (usually a button right on the topside of the touchpad)
  • did you reboot completely? full shutdown, then power on?
  • goto the device manager (with a usb mouse of course) and find the touchpad... delete the device... then reboot again it should try and find the touchpad and ask for the driver, point it to the directory that you have the driver located.
good luck!

How to replace the keybord on an advent 9517 laptop


Advent laptops are manufactured by DSG International, which owns the names to other name-brand computers such as Acer and Hewlett-Packard.
The Advent laptop keyboard has integrated mouse touch-pad functions that allow you to move the mouse around the screen with your fingers.
Function keys at the top of the board contain alternate ways to exit and enter software applications.

Function Keys
The Advent laptop keyboards function keys are "hot keys" that act as shortcuts to applications and functions on the computer. The function keys sometimes don't work and won't carry out the function assigned to the key. This problem is considered a hardware malfunction, and the solution is to replace the keyboard or use a universal serial bus (USB) keyboard for the laptop. b> Malfunctioning Keys b> Advent keyboards are made of thin plastic. Striking the keys too hard will cause the keys to break or stick awkwardly in the housing unit that supports the keyboard. When these keys get stuck in the housing unit, a pin tool can easily set the keys back on track. If there are too many keys that get stuck or broken, you can purchase a replacement Advent keyboard and have it installed. b> Mouse Problems b> The mouse is located at the bottom of the Advent keyboard but is connected to the keyboard data strip that sends information through the keyboard unit to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse malfunctions, check the connector under the keyboard to see if it is loose. A loose connector can cause the mouse or other keys not to function on the laptop. b> Electrical Shortage b> An electrical shortage can cause an Advent keyboard not to work properly. A shortage is when the main board of the laptop is not getting the voltage needed to efficiently operate the computer. When this happens, certain devices underperform or become inoperable. Check to see if your power supply is extremely hot or if your system heats up around the keyboard. If so, replace the electrical adapter. b> Wire Damage From Keystrokes b> The wire that is responsible for the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the Advent laptop extends from under the middle of the keyboard to the LCD display unit. This wire is unprotected and can be damaged from striking the keys over the wire. When this happens, the display will not show the correct colors or the screen will go black. To eliminate this problem, purchase a keyboard cover that fits the keys to relieve the pressure between the keyboard and video cable. b> Keyboard Drivers b> Problems have been reported with upgrades from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Windows 7 will not recognize the system drivers that operate the Advent keyboard. To get the keyboard to work, you must load the old drivers in Windows 7 Safe mode, which is used anytime there is a hardware or software discrepancy. Advent keyboard drivers can be loaded from the original restore CD, which is included with the system at the time of purchase.

I need schematic for a 2610 Long Tractor


Before trying to repair a perceived hardware fault in the Tractor/Touch Pad/Track Pad/Mouse, you should consider simply plugging a USB Mouse into one of the USB ports, to see if that works by restoring your control of the desktop.

Alternative explanations for these symptoms include malware infections that have disabled your active desktop or a corruption of the Tractor/Track Pad/Touch Pad/Mouse Drivers. Try downloading, installing and purging any infection with Anti Malwarebytes, available free from:

www.malwarebytes.org

another issue could be Driver conflict or corruption. Try uninstalling all components of the drivers from add or Remove Programs or its equivalent in your Operating System and then restarting the notebook with the USB Mouse still connected and then reinstalling the relevant drivers from the Driver CD or downloading and installing the from the Support pages of the Acer website:

http://www.official-drivers.com/installer/?seed=acer&gclid=CM_R_M6MuawCFZJc4QodRxM0Hg


If the above does not restore the function of the faulty device, the sites below offer Disassembly Guides for this model of Notebook:

My mouse pad isnt working but a USB mouse is, tried to use Fn+F7 but didnt work. Any help?


Is there a function key on the laptop? (Fn usually blue ink) is there a key with the symbol that looks like mouse pad. Hold down Fn then the mouse pad key and that should enable the mouse pad.

As you have suggested the F7 key is the one for the mouse pad, and hasn't made any difference, have you somehow corrupted the drivers. You can download them from the acer website.

when did it last work, you cloud try a system restore. Remember to press Fn + F7 again and give it a moment to enable( just in case the last time you tried it, you turned the hardware off despite it's lack of functionality)

The mouse has worked until this week - what is wrong with it? What should I do? I have installed a fresh battery and checked that it is in correctly.


Go to Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager-. Mice and other Pointing Device. Here select this mouse and delete it. Reboot the laptop/PC. Reinstall the drivers for it again and connect the mouse sensor. Your mouse will start working again. Somehow the mouse drivers got corrupted and need a new installation.

Laptop mouse not moving properly


If u r talking about the Mouse pad on ur laptop, then i guess u should reinstall the driver of ur touch pad..
U can do so by going to Properties of my computer
Open device manager & select mouse
Now simply uninstall the device & restart your system..
if u cant restart it then simply press F5 inside ur device manager tab. It will show a pop up named, NEW HARDWARE FOUND.
Let it install it... Its ur mouse ( Touch Pad) & after it installs its driver, restart ur system

now check out whether it works or not..

Hope this works u out..
