    The function key solution worked for me too, wish I had got to you sooner as I've re-installed everything and wasted a lot of time, wish the Acer website was as useful.

There is a button to the left of the ON button above the keyboard that turns the touchpad on and off. The light next to that button should be off for the touchpad to work.

My Acer Aspire 5100 laptop has the same problem.
I really appreciate the above guest's answer. Actually, I found that I had accidentally pressed FN+ F7. the action disabled the touchpad mouse. Yah!!!!

I have the Acer Aspire 5610Z and I had the same problem. I tried everything and nothing worked. I remembered I have the extended warranty so I called them. I felt so stupid after I found out what the problem was. I will share it with you and hope it is a simple solution for you as well.
I am using Windows Vista but that has nothing to do with it. There is a function key on the bottom left side of the key pad that is marked Fn in blue. Hold this tab down and at the same time tap on the F7 tab. This turns the touchpad on or off. There is no message that comes up so you just have to test out the touchpad each time to see if it is on or off. I am sure I knew this at one time but I forgot it so I made a document in word to remind me when I have a senior moment again.
I hope this helps someone else.

You should check the status of the touchpad. Go to the control panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager and look for the touch pad(on my computer it is labeled as Human Interface Devices). Right click and Properties. Make sure the device is working properly. A similar thing happened to my Sony Vaio. Even without the drivers that it needed, it still showed as working properly. Other than that, I would think it will most likely not be functioning and needs to be replaced.

Hey has everyone found what the driver name is for the touch pad aspire 5610z iff you look onto ya device manager it shows on there if you click onto mouse that there isnt no driver there so try finding the driver and installing it by searching for new hardware once you got the driver downloaded.

Thanks, the Fn +F7 key really helped me out. Thought I was losing my mind in the middle of my term, lol, thanks!

Wow, I had the same problem on my 3680. The Fn F7 worked for me too. I wonder how many people do that! Thanks soo much.

Fn key F7 worked for me - thanks for your advice I was beginning to dispair!

Posted on Mar 12, 2008

Had this happen to me and finally figured out that I had accidentally pushed the FN key and the f7 when I held FN and hit f7 it worked again, that is i guess some key to turn it off for what ever reason.

I pressed the esc button on my acer 5610-4608 ever since then my sypnatic mouse is not working


When did this happen? Have you tried system restore through your windows version?

In windows xp, it's c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
In windows vista it's c:\windows\system32\rstrui.exe

Roll back your windows to when it was working.

XP will go back months, Vista only about 5 weeks.

Touchpad not working after re-install windows XP SP2.


You can't load Windows XP over Vista. Microsoft has it in the BIOS that it cannot be overlaid with an older system. The only way to use XP is to attempt to dual-boot but that will take you some research. Load vista back...don't blame me Microsoft screwed us..

Pls rate solution.

if you have installed vista and change it to xp, you should first delete or reformat your current OS (Operating System) which I believe is the ur vista.

formatting OS:

-insert your xp disk then press F8
-click format or delete files ( i don't know the exact message that will appear on the screen)
-then install windows XP (just follow the instruction that you will see on the screen)

hope this would help you solve your problem..

thanks.. :)

Might seem ovious but you may want to try Acer support and look for a new Driver.. Also check under Control Panel...Mouse options... and also check device profiles to make sure windows isn't loading a "docked profile which may disable touchpad and laptop keybaord use.
