Re: touchpad problem

I assume that it was disabled on the bios so restart you laptop and set it on the BIOS

Re: touchpad problem

May be your touchpad had lost its contact with the motherboard, due to broken wires or lose cable. If your laptop is out of warranty open it, do this: Find out the flat cable that connects your touchpad and motherboard. Make sure it is connected preoperly, if not do it well. And start your machine. If connection is OK and still not working you should replace the cable or replace the entire touchpad unit. Note: do remember to check your BIOS for disabled touchpad device. If so enable it.

Mousepad not working


Each Touchbad should have basic functionality by default in every Operating system, letting it be used even when no driver is installed. However, try pressing FN and F7 together and see if the touchpad works again. Some people accidently press this FN + F7 key when they mute the sound with the FN + F8 key.

The FN + F7 is there to disable/enable the touchpad as some people use a USB mouse instead of the touchpad.

If you still need the drivers, here are the download links. Please choose desired driver by Operating system and Touchpad brand...

The "mouse" pad on my Acer Aspire 5920 laptop has suddenly stopped working. What can I do to mend it

You can try pressing the Fn + F7 key to activate it, if that does not help you can check in the BIOS if the touchpad is disabled.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

Touch pad stopped working

I recommend you to uninstall and reinstall touchpad drivers to isolate the issue.
Press Windows key and R. Type devmgmt.msc in Run window and click on OK. Click on "+" sign beside Mice and other pointing devices in Device Manager.
Right click on Touchpad and select Uninstall.
You will be prompted to restart the computer.
Windows detects touchpad and the touchpad drivers will be reinstalled automatically.
You can also install touchpad drivers from your notebook support website.
You can reinstall the drivers from the below links:
However I suggest you to install the drivers by visiting the acer support website.
Also perform windows update.

I have a Aspire 3680 Series, when I turn it on I can not get the mouse pointer to work it does not even show up on the screen at all.

try to use the touchpad only, if that causes problems, try connecting a ps/2 or usb mouse

under win98se, win2000 or winxp it should work out somehow,
if not, deactivate the touchpad via the device manager, reinstall the appropriate driver for your windows version, reboot.
Still got the problem?
run a hardware detection software like pcwizard 2008( freeware) to find out whether your system recognizes the touch pad at all.
it could also be a hardware malfunction:
if yes, permanently deactivate touchpad and use mouse instead.

Touch pad center click button no longer works

Near your clock, you'll usually find an icon for your touch pad (probably synaptics). Open this & select mouse properties, in there look under Device Settings & try the "Reset Devices" icon.

If that don't work, Click start>control panel (classic view)>mouse.
On the Touchpad tab, make sure the 'tapping' box is checked . Click apply, click ok.

If that doesn't work, click start>run, type devmgmt.msc
and click ok.
Click the plus to expand Mice and Other Pointing Devices.
Right click and uninstall any mouse or touchpad listed.
Let Windows rediscover and reinstall the touchpad drivers.

Good Luck!
