If it is an Synaptics touchpad (most common), you can disable it by right clicking on the taskbar icon

You can try updating your driver as well to get these options:

The mouse won't move


If it's the touchpad mouse - you may have disabled it by accident. For Acers, try hitting the Fn key and F7 at the same time.
If that doesn't work, you may need to connect a usb mouse and re-enable the touchpad. That should be in Control Panel -> Mouse -> Hardware.

Mouse pad not working


Examine your "Function"/"F" keys and look for a touchpad icon. If you find one, hold the "Fn" key and press the touchpad icon button to unlock the touchpad. Move on to Step 2 if your laptop doesn't support this feature. Plug a USB mouse into an open port on your laptop. Click the Windows "Start" button. Click "Control Panel" in Windows XP and double-click "Device Manager." Type "Device" in the search box in Vista and Windows 7 and click "Device Manager" from the results. Click "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the touchpad and select "Enable." Your touchpad is now unlocked. Hope this helps.

No mouse, how do i do the things like highlight that i used to right click with


Does the laptop have a touchpad (usually centered on the keyboard below the space bar) with two buttons above it? Then drag your finger across the selection to highlight it. Then click the right button.

It may take some practice. I usually end up getting a finger to register as moving to a new point on the screen when I try to move up to the buttons.

If you are still more comfortable with a mouse, get a USB corded or wireless mouse. Connect the mouse to a free port and use as you normally do. (Wireless mice can be a little tricky when the batteries run down or the receiver and mouse lose their connection.) If you have limited ports, a USB hub will usually be fine for connecting a mouse.

I hope this helps.

(Note: some older laptops need the touchpad disabled to avoid confusion. With Windows, Start > Control Panel > Hardware > Device Manager)

How do you turn off the touch pad


Some notebook users find the touch pad annoying because at times, while typing fast, their thumbs accidentally brush up against the touchpad. This is frustrating because the mouse cursor jumps to a random location on the screen and can cause undesirable things.

To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Acer aspire one netbook touchpad wouldnt work could only use with left click - trying to fix managed to disable touchpad by mistake now curser wont work how can i enablei it when cant use curset? please


If possible try to connect a USB mouse and use that to enable the touchpad...
After that reinstall the drivers for the touchpad the issue should be fixed... Even if you still have the issue then call the computer manufacturer.

If you dont get a USB mouse.. Then turn on the computer get into safe modem by tapping F8... Try to check in safe mode whether the touchpad is working.. If its working reinstall the drivers the issue will be fixed

My touchpad jumps around or the arrow won't move


Keep the palms of your hands away from your touchpad.
Just being "close" to the touchpad is enough to move the mouse-pointer.

My mouse has stopped working on my acer laptop


Hi,
Do you mean the touchpad or a USB mouse? if its a usb mouse try another usb port, is it wireless? if its wireless check the battery.
if its the touchpad it may be turned off, to turn it on hold down the blue FN button and look at the F1 to F12 keys, one of them has a touchpad icon and it will disable and enable the touch pad, don't worry if your not sure try them all if you wish. You will probably learn something new while your doing it :-)
