Thanks. The Fn F7 idea did not work, the Enable/Disable toggle in Control Panel made no difference BUT the simple pressing of the TINY finger pointing next to the power button DID work. Duh!

Sounds like the driver is missing or has become corrupted.
try a new mouse with the enclosed software.

My Genius Traveler 6000x wireless mouse suddenly stopped working


Double check the batteries, although the lights work and the computer sees it, the voltage could drop low enough to stop the sensors.

next, try another USB device in that plug. USB port can go bad.

If the port works, it could be the wireless USB connector starting to fail, if they are bumped to hard sideways it can cause loose connections internally.

then, you might just need to update drivers. Computer update s can conflict with drivers cause devices toss top working.

Aspire 5532: touchpad no longer works, machine works fine using mouse plugged into USB. What can I do to make the touchpad work again?


Hello Egor,

This model has a touchpad lock. May you inadvertedly locked the touchpad.

Anyway, it's so easy to unlock it. Simply press the 'finger' button which is found on the left of the power button and that should make it work again.

Once a mouse was attached the Acer Aspire 5532 touch-pad no longer works. When the mouse is disconnected the touch-pad still will not work. I do not see a toggle button to use to toggle between the mouse...


HI Diane,

Since you haven't provided the Windows Operating System version (XP/Vista/7 or other?), I'll have to provide the general scope of what you should try.

1. Go to the Control Panel and open up your Mouse section
2. Look through the different tabs until you find an option to either "Enable" your touchpad, or one that says the equivalent of "Disable Touchpad when external mouse or device is connected"

The idea is to accomplish your aim by working with the mouse settings provided for your system. Good luck and go easy on the "blue thumb". Please provide more specific information before a negative response.

Thanks

> you just have to reinstall driver for your touchpad but if after doing that and still not working then touchpad might be busted

Acer Aspire 5532 touchpad wont work at all. I had to use a usb mouse to be able to get online.


I just fixed this problem...the fn & f7 didnt work... at the top of computer where you turn the machine off and on - there is a button to the left. Press this button [not the on/off btn] and it should work.

The mousepad on my acer aspire 5633WLMi doesn't work...any ideas?


Check if it's enabled. If enabled, but still don't work, connect an USB mouse to any free USB port. If you can move the pointer with the mouse, but nor with the touchpad, reinstall your touchpad's drivers. If stills refusing to work, then take your laptop to service center.

Touch pad won't work on Aspire 5515.


If the touchpad has gone bad there's not much you can do, unless it just happens to have a loose connection. You can try disassembling the keyboard to get access to the touchpad cable and verify it but to be honest, that's an unlikely scenario.
Can you plugin a usb mouse? Or you could try an external touchpad like the Bamboo made by Wacom although that's a bit expensive. Again, it would need a usb connection though.

My mouse has stopped working on my acer laptop


Hi,
Do you mean the touchpad or a USB mouse? if its a usb mouse try another usb port, is it wireless? if its wireless check the battery.
if its the touchpad it may be turned off, to turn it on hold down the blue FN button and look at the F1 to F12 keys, one of them has a touchpad icon and it will disable and enable the touch pad, don't worry if your not sure try them all if you wish. You will probably learn something new while your doing it :-)
