Touchpad and Control Panel If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective.

Touchpad If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.

User Control and Display Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Internal tochpad wont work


You probably have the touchpad turned off. Some models will have a button at the top of the touchpad in the middle that toggles it on or off.

Some models you can tap twice in the upper left hand corner of the touchpad to toggle it on or off.

I've seen some models where the touchpad is toggled by keystrokes. You had to Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key to hit had the icon of a finger pointing at a touchpad.

Click Start/Control Panel and check the Mouse or touchpad drivers to make sure the settings are ok. I would just set everything back to Default.

Maybe you need to reinstall the touchpad drivers if any of the above does not solve it.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

Touchpad not workin at all


u can turn on or turn off the touchpad functionality of ur notebook..what must have happened is u would have turned off the touchpad of ur notebook by mistake & now u dont know how to turn it on....The key to turn on the touchpad can be different on different notebooks...so it would have been easier for me to provide u a resolution if u would have also mentioned the model of ur notebook... Generally there is a small button just beside the touchpad which is used to turn or off the tochpad, if the small button is amber in color then the touchpad is turned off & if its blue in color then touchpad is on...otherwise sometimes there is no button beside the touchpad & then there is a key combination to turn on or off the touchpad & it is Fn+F7....
try this out, it might work for u, if it works then let me know by rating this solution...

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.

Dell inspiron tochpad only works by holding down key on keyboard


It is likey the connection for the touchpad has come loose. As this connector is under the keyboard it would make sense that putting pressure on the keyboard causes it to work. If you are comfortable with removing a few screws, refer to the service manual on Dell's website on how to remove the keyboard. You will then see a ribbon cable connected to a plastic mechanism that secures the cable to the connection on the motherboard. Simply slide the top of the plastic mechanism forward or back to release tension on the ribbon cable, make sure the cable is straight and all the way forward, then slide the mechanism back into place and you should be okay. If you are not comfortable with removing anything, any computer repair shop should be able to do this for you relatively quickly.
