I turned off my touch pad to my acer aspire 5733z and it wont turn bk on


Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.


Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.


The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.


Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.


Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.

Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.


hope this helps

I have an Acer Aspire 5517 and all of a sudden, the keyboard will stop working. The touch pad works fine but nothing on the keyboard (nothing! the letters, numbers, hotkeys) will work. Can anyone explain...


With an Acer, most likely the keyboard went out or the ribbon cable from the motherbaord came loose. The touchpad and keyboard are separate units so will work independent of each other. It's a simple replacement.

Is there any way to adjust the sensetivity of the touchpad on my Acer laptop? I have the Aspire 5517 Series.


The Aspire 5517 use two types of touchpads. You will have to go to the control panel and get into the device manager and scroll down to pointing devices and see which one is installed on your system. If you look in the control pnel and look for the mouse properties, you should see in the mouse properties a setting tab. In the settings tab, you should see a listing for a touchpad. If you highlight that device, and click on the settings button, you will see a list of settings come up, in that list you will see buttons for setting the sensitivity of the touchpad as well as virtual scrolling, etc.
