Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

When I power on my acer aspire 5000, and use touchpad to clic on any icon, nothing happens. The mouse moves but no dialog boxes opens when clicked on. It's like the screen is frozen. Also, I seem to have lost my wireless internet connection. It indicates little or no connectivity. However, connect strength is good. Please please provide assistance.

You can also left-click the touchpad while the cursor is anywhere on the desktop. From that screen, choose "Mouse Pointers." Select the "Buttons" tab at the top of the dialog box that opens.

I have a Acer Aspire One, and the when I try to click any link with just tapping my finger on the mouse pad nothing happens...I can move the mouse around but not click anything..


Go to control panel > mouse > on the upper tab, there should be a tab for device settings. Open that up and it should list your touchpad, highlight it and click on the settings button. In there enable "tapping" on the touchpad. Click apply and ok. If the touchpad does not show up under device settings or there is no device settings tab, then the driver for the touchpad is missing or corrupt. In the control panel, go to device manager and scroll down to mice and pointing devices, if the touchpad is listed there, right click on it and click Un-install, but keep the driver if there is one. Reboot the machine and windows will be forced to reinstall and update the driver. Let windows search for a new driver if it wants to. You should be back in shape.

Keypad doesn't work


Hello, first thing you want to do is goto your control panel,
  • click on the mouse icon in the control panel
  • a mouse properties box will pop up
  • at the top of the box click hardware
  • look to see if your mouse and the touchpad are labeled under devices.
  • highlight each one and check to see if it says, this device is working properly.
  • if there both listed and working properly, click on device settings at the top of the properties box.
  • under devices it should say your touchpad is enabled, if it's not click enable then click apply.
Hope this helps, good luck.
