One of my friends had the same problem. From memory, I think it is a common issue on Acer PCs. Basically there is a button (one of the F keys I think) that turns the mouse pad on and off. I think he said the icon on the key did not look like a mouse pad, but if you squintd it kind of did... Try hitting a few of these keys, and I bet it will spring back into life!!

Good luck

When typing, cursor jumps backward several spaces


Sounds like your mousepad is ghosting. This means it thinks you're tapping the mousepad as you type, which will make it type exactly where you nlast moved the curser to. First, try cleaning the pad thoroughly with a damp tissue, and dry it well... if that doesn't solve it, you could try adjusting the mousepad sensitivity controls on the control panel. Hope that helps.

Laptop mousepad doesn't work correctly


If it is a new Laptop then I'll not suggest you to open it for cleaning because you'll void the warranty period. You can check for the latest touch pad driver and update it once. it may help you.

Hi my name is amyraffan and my dell inspiron 1545 touch pad/ mouse has stopped working completely it wont move and its froze in the same posiition, please help!


Hi,
there is a button to disable the touchpad near to it. check if you had accidentally clicked on that button which disables your mousepad.

If still problem not solved, then try reinstalling the touchpad device driver alone from the driver cd provided along with your laptop.

I hope this helps you.
Thanks

The scroll bars on the mousepad don't work


Since it is a Laptop you can not just go over to the Scroll Bar. Move the arrow from the mouse over to the scroll bar. Hold on the left key below the mousepad. The scroll bar should turn a differnt color. Move the scroll bar up and down with your finger,using the mousepad.

Toshiba Satellite Touchpad not working


Restore the defaults in the BIOS to begin with, this will make sure its not a setting in there that is disabling the mousepad.

Then in windows see if the touchpad is working. If not then take the keyboard out with the power turned off.

When you take the keyboard out you will see the ribbon cable that comes from underneath the touchpad. disconnect it from the motherboard and reseat it firmly back in. Then turn back on the motherboard and see if the mousepad works. If it still doesn't then try the shortcut key to enable it.

If it does't enable then that means its either going to be a mousepad problem where you would have to replace the top cover assembly or a motherboard problem cause it could be where the voltage required to run that mousepad is missing.

Laptop Compaq Presario 2700 Keyboard & Mousepad lost at all


I read somwhere that most motherboards have a third layer of conductors laminated in the middle of board.It could be possible that you are shorting out something there. Take the screws out and try it without the heatsink for a minute or so. Most big DUI stores sell plastic screws in their hardware areas. These will work no problem.

Locked keyboard and mousepad on acer aspire 6920G


Almost same problem: the mouse froze.

Found a nice solution at another website: switch off the pc, unplug the power supply cable AND remove battery. Press "on" switch for 20 seconds. Now re-install battery, plug back power supply cable, and switch on. Worked for me (what exactly worked for me I don't know but hey)

Good luck.
