Acer mouse disassemble ???

The Acer Aspire is a laptop model that has a built-in "mouse pad," also called a "touchpad." The user runs his or her finger across the mouse panel to move the cursor. If your mouse pad no longer responds to your touch, it may be due to a build-up of dirt and grease. Another common problem is having an outdated or damaged mouse pad driver. These problems can be quickly resolved without having to take apart the laptop.

Hold down the "Fn" key, which is found at the bottom left corner of the keyboard. Press the "F7" key once while holding the "Fn" key. Look for a message that says "touchpad enabled." b> Update the Drivers Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "System and Maintenance" > "Device Manager." Double-click on "Mice and other pointing devices" to expand the options. Right-click "Synaptics Touchpad" and then click "Search automatically for updated driver software." Wait for the computer to scan and install new drivers. Restart your laptop. Acer Aspire 5738 7736 Touchpad Mouse Replacement

Mouse pad not moving the cursor


There will be a Fn combination for the mouse pad.Please have a look on the fn (F1 to F12) keys on top of the keyboard and you will find the mouse pad symble on any one.
Press that function key with fn key (usually with windows button) and the touch pad will start working.

The curser is stuck in the middle of the screen. I move my finger over the pad and it will not move. I have restarted 3 times to no avail.

Is there a button near the trackpad that might be lit up in red or another color? On some laptops, there is an option to turn off the trackpad by pushing a button. Commonly, its right above it. An example is in this picture in the upper right corner:
If there is no button, try connecting a USB mouse and see if you can make it work that way. If so, you may have a hardware or driver issue. You can download drivers from the manufactures site.

My toshiba laptop cursor doesnot move when i touch the tray pad


I had the same problem after my fat cat sat on my keyboard. This is how I fixed it. At the top of the keyboard there is a F9 key. If you look closely at this key, it also has two pictures of the mouse pad. This key is a toggle that turns the mouse pad on and off. Down near the lower left corner of the keyboard is a key marked FN. Hold down the FN key and press the F9 key. That will turn the mouse pad back on.

Touch pad failed.

Look along the top of the keyboard for an "f key" that shows a "touch pad" icon, IF you see it, press the "function key" (along the bottom of the keyboard) PLUS at the same time the "f key" (that you found along the top) and that should "toggle" the touch pad back on....
Also, IF you plug in a USB mouse that will allow you to move the cursor around--but the USB mouse doesn't fix your touch pad problem.
Hope this helps.
