Touchpad keys can wear out, especially in this acer model. You can contact a laptop repair near you or Acer directly for the replacement part. It's not difficult to replace, but you will have to remove the keyboard and the top half of the case to do so. It's usually only held in place by 1 or 2 screws to the under side of the plastic case.

The mouse pad has stopped working on my sons emachines e430 how can i get it start working again???????


Hi there,

At the top of the keyboard there is a touchpad toggle button (enables and disables the touchpad) that may automatically be disabled at boot time.

You will see just above the keyboard three oval silverish buttons the first one on the left is to enable or disable the touchpad.

Here's the official site for the manual showing all the function keys and features:

My touchpad has stoped working on my Acer Aspire 5732 Z


Hello,

Sometimes it differs but you can try pressing FN and F7 together on your keyboard to see if that will enable the touchpad again.FN should be next to your left-ctrl on your laptop keyboard.

On other Acers, there's either a seperate button to enable the touchpad or a different Function key. See on your keyboard the function keys and choose the one that looks like a tochpad, with a pointing hand. Sometimes the icon on the key just looks like a mini-touch-pad.

Touchpad stopped working


Hi,

You may have accidentally turned off the touchpad. To re-enable it just hold down Fn and hit the F7 key to re-enable it.

Acer Aspire 5532 touchpad wont work at all. I had to use a usb mouse to be able to get online.


I just fixed this problem...the fn & f7 didnt work... at the top of computer where you turn the machine off and on - there is a button to the left. Press this button [not the on/off btn] and it should work.

My acer 5532 touchpad has suddenly stopped working... any ideas? mouse doesnt move and usb wireless mouse doesnt work either.. although it does on myu sister's laptop


Thanks. The Fn F7 idea did not work, the Enable/Disable toggle in Control Panel made no difference BUT the simple pressing of the TINY finger pointing next to the power button DID work. Duh!

Touchpad doesn't work


Look at your Function keys (F1-F12). There should be a icon of a touchpad or something similar on one of the keys. Most likely it is F7.

If you can find it, press the Function button (FN, next to CTRL) and F7 (or whatever key designates the touchpad), and see if this enables it.

If not, go to your control panel and click mouse properties. THere may be a tab for the touchpad where you can enable/disable it.
