If this laptop was purchased new, I suggest you return it to the supplier to have it repaired under warranty. If you try to repair it yourself you may void your warranty.

Unlock cursor for acer laptop


Your laptop comes with a touch pad that acts as a mouse. Instead of connecting a mouse each time you want to use your laptop, you can use the touch pad that is integrated underneath the keyboard. This comes in handy when you are in a tight spot such as in a classroom or on an airplane. At times, you may need to unlock the laptop touch pad because someone who borrowed your laptop disabled it. It may also be locked due to a slight malfunction that you can easily fix by enabling the touch pad in your computer settings.
Click the Windows "Start" button in the bottom-left corner of your desktop. Scroll up and click "Control Panel." Choose the "Mouse" icon or type "Mouse" in the field in the upper-right corner. Click the "Enter" button and then click the "Mouse" link. Press the "Hardware" tab or the tab to the right of it that specifies the type of touch pad you have. If you are under the "Hardware" tab, highlight the touch pad in the list of devices and click the "Enable" button. If you are under the touch pad tab, click the enable button. Click the "Apply" button and then click the "OK" button. Hope this helps.

If the Fn (Function) button at the bottom left of the keyboard is pressed in conjunction with some other key on the keyboard it can result in the disabling of the mouse pad.


To enable your mouse pad on a Windows PC go to the Control Menu.

Under the Printers and Other Hardware option, click on Mouse.


Then, click on the tab on the top of the pop-up menu that says Device Settings.

The touch pad for your computer should come up as a selectable option.

Click on it and you will see the option to enable your device, then click OK

Right-click on a blank spot on your desktop. Scroll down, select "Personalize" and then choose "Mouse Pointer."

How to unlock a mouse on a laptop


On the top of your keyboard there should be F keys like F1,F2 etc.
Every F key has a little picture.When you see a touchpad picture press Fn+F5. According to my Laptop. For example if your touchpad picture is at F6 then you would press Fn+F6.The Fn key should be located near the ctrl keys. If this does not work then try the following steps:-

1 Click the Windows "Start" button in the bottom-left corner of your desktop. Scroll up and click "Control Panel."

2 Choose the "Mouse" icon or type "Mouse" in the field in the upper-right corner. Click the "Enter" button and then click the "Mouse" link.

3 Press the "Hardware" tab or the tab to the right of it that specifies the type of touch pad you have. If you are under the "Hardware" tab, highlight the touch pad in the list of devices and click the "Enable" button. If you are under the touch pad tab, click the enable button.

4 Click the "Apply" button and then click the "OK" button.

On touch pad, the left and right click below the pad, for the mouse, the left button doesn't click anymore?


Since the left button is a primary button it gets used quite a lot thus the button fails at some point in time.

Either the button has broken or the spring mechanism has broken.
Don't worry it can be repaired, claim warranty support if you can. The laptop needs to be partially disassembled and the buttons inspected. The button may need replacing.

Take care!

On your laptop, directly beneath the touch pad are two oblong buttons. They act as mouse buttons. The left one selects and the right one gives extra options.
Hope that helps.

You can adjust your keyboard and the touch pad , controls with the adjustments in the menu for mouse and keypad options.
Also you can use the personal settings to get this right for your touch , adjusting the sensitivity accordingly

How to repair the left click button on HP Pavilion ZT1135


Hey,
I had the same problem. It is pretty easy to fix. You have one of two options to follow.
1) Push down moderately hard on the left mouse button. After 2 mins or so, and the cap should back on to the button on the bottom
2) if number 1 doesn't work get a needle or pin and lift the left mouse button off. Then just apply very little, not even a drop, maybe half of a drop to the button and apply the cap back on and push down.
