Make sure that the touchpad just turned off. Hold the function key (Fn) and press F9 on the keyboard.

Touchpad doesn't work


Step 1:
The touchpad of any laptop is always subject to heavy use.
Most touchpads are designed for their durability to sustain the daily wear and tear for the lifespan of the laptop.
However, there may be instances or accidents that cause the touchpads to malfunction or stop working entirely.
There are ways to troubleshoot such problems and there are also remedies to salvage the touchpad's functionality without heavy repair or replacement cost.

Determine What's Wrong
A laptop's touchpad basically provides the functionality of a mouse for a desktop PC, typically with two buttons located just below it acting as the left and right click buttons on a desktop computer. A touchpad may be damaged by excessive use or foreign substances such as water, dirt or food items. Hit the "Windows" button on the keyboard and then use the right-left keys (or hit 'C') to open "Control Panel." From there, again use the right-left keys to get to "Mouse" and then hit "Return." Use the right-left keys to toggle between the tabs and open each to investigate whether any boxes had been improperly clicked by accident that cause the touchpad to become unresponsive. But if any of these steps fail to remedy the problem, then the touchpad may need to be repaired or replaced. b> Repairing/Replacing Touchpad b> A touchpad assembly cost $100 or more and that's not including replacement installation. Hiring a specialist to replace a damaged touchpad, including parts and labor, may easily cost $200. Unless the laptop in question is worth well over $1,000 and the touchpad is deemed a necessity, such repairs are rarely worth the cost. Attempting to replace the touchpad without certain expertise in laptop assembly may be dangerous and/or destructive. Also, getting a replacement part that's not compatible with the laptop may have catastrophic results, including irreversible damage to the laptop. Long-Term and Better Solution b> The simplest, and best, solution to a malfunctioning touchpad is to replace its functionalities with an external mouse. Most PCs sold after 2000 come with USB ports and getting a USB mouse either a corded or a cordless one--will remedy the problem. A cordless USB mouse may be bought for as little as $10 and some of the better-designed ones allow the user to tuck the USB stick inside the mouse's belly when not in use. Even when a touchpad is working properly, a laptop user should be advised to plug in a mouse anyway whenever possible as touchpads are notoriously difficult to use and also leaves the user in an ergonomically incorrect position.

The touch pad, left & right clck buttons.


  • Hi, click on the "Start Button," next in the (right area) click on the "Control Panel." In the window there will be "listings" different categories; choose the "Mouse," from the "Hardware and Sound" click on it to open the next window. Next select the "Device Setting" button, once the window open, click on the "Setting" button just below the"highlighted" TouchPad, or Mouse. The area of your immediate concern is the "Buttons" put a [check] mark into "Enable" buttons. Try out some of the "items listed" Tapping, Virtual Scrolling... "You must click on the "Apply, OK buttons when finished." Note: Restart the computer; this will make sure the changes are correctly applied, and working properly. "Rating the solution will let me know if the problem is fixed, or you will need further assistance, thanks."

My acer 5534 touchpad is not working... HELP!!!!!


There are three buttons near the right internal laptop speaker. The button directly to the right is the dvd drive eject button. One of the ones to the left which has the satellite icon will enable/disable the wifi receiver. The other one with the hand icon (which is the one you're looking for) will enable/disable the touchpad. If you press it, you should see a message printed in all caps in green saying that the touchpad is either enabled or disabled.

My touchpad right and left click button stopped working


is there a touch pad lock button, that locks the pad? if there isn't then there is most likely excess debris or dust or something under there that needs to be blown out with airisol can. If both of those solutions don't work then i would check to make sure the driver is installed for the touch pad. Good Luck. and i hope it works out.

Disable Touchpad Clicking


Hiya, At the bottom right of the screen, by the clock, you should see an icon for the touchpad.....

Hint : Hover the mouse over the icons and wait for the "Pop-Up" Display to see what they do if your not sure.

When you find the one for the touchpad, simply right click it and scroll down to the option that says "Tap To Click" and left click it so that there is NO TICK next to it..........

........ This will DISABLE all tap click options and leave the touchpad as a touchpad and the buttons as buttons...........

Hope This Helps, Kind Regards,

Me :D
