You have to open your computer, and make sure the touch pad cable is still connected, but try before to check if the touch pad driver is missing, this could cause this problem too. Go to control panel-system-device manager, and look under touch pad if it show yellow question mark.

Cursor frozen, fn and f7 nor any hotkeys don't unlock it or keypad


Hi,

You might have pressed fn and another key. Look to see if any keys have something that looks like a touchpad or a finger or a finger on a touchpad on them, and if restarting doesn't work, try pressing fn and that button


OR

look at the bottom left side of ur keys where the CTRL and WINDOWS Icon is......inbetween those buttons is another key that says " Fn "...if u have this key on ur acer laptop and ur touchpad is stuck or jumping around or just acting funny...here is how u fix it......hold down the "Fn" key and tap the F7 key ONE TIME ......do not tap more than once....just ONE TIME....and ur touchpad is fixed...if that does not do it......call ACER......

Shawn

I've tried pressing fn and f7 at the same time and it won't work, neither will any of the other suggestions. And my computer keeps saying that the touchpad is enabled. Is there anything else that I can do...


Try hitting just the F7 key only. I had an issue with an HP Mini laptop and was hitting the Fn and the F7 key and found the key combination didn't work when I pressed both Fn and F7. But it did work when I just hit the F7 key (even though "F7" was written in blue, the same color as the Fn key, it turned out that I didn't need to press Fn and the key for F7 to gain the functionality of the F7 key. HP tech support informed me of that when I called them due to a similar issue I experienced a while back).

Try to hit F7 alone. That may help you out.

As for the touchpad, it should be enabled. (Unless you're using a different pointing device and want it disabled). There are options where you can turn off the touchpad on start up, but I would advise against doing so.

My touchpad mouse is not working


you can try pressing fn-f7 to turn it back on.. hold the fn key like a shift key, then tap f7 (it turns the touchpad on and off on the zg5 series units.) the icon looks like a touchpad with a finger.

Frozen touchpad


I followed the advice of pressing the FN and F7 keys at the same time. It didn't work when the program was fully loaded, but I rebooted and tried again during the rebooting and it worked. I had the frozen cursor on the Travel Mate (Acer) also.

Frozen touchpad


Did you try the Fn+F7 combo, the F7 is usually assigned to the touchpad and is indicated by an icon that's relevant.

This works on most notebooks to turn on or off the touchpad.

Let me know, as this can also be turned on or off in the bios setup pages. Press F2 or F10 (it varies) to enter your bios setup screens. In these pages is a setting for touch pad only, mouse only or touch pad and mouse or serial. You might check that.
