Keyboard unlock

Like most modern laptops, IBM/Lenovo laptops feature a built-in touchpad that you can use as a substitute for an external mouse device. If you experience a non-functional or "locked" touchpad, then you have one of two possible problems; either the touchpad's drivers are corrupt or a user has manually locked the touchpad. In either case, you can unlock your touchpad and restore it to functionality quickly.

Open your web browser and paste the following URL in the address bar:

Click the "Download" button and then click "I agree" to save the Lenovo touchpad driver installation file to your computer. Double-click the EXE file that you downloaded. Doing so opens the driver's installation wizard. Follow the on-screen prompts to re-install your Lenovo's touchpad drivers. If your locked touchpad is due to a corrupt or outdated device driver, then your touchpad is now unlocked and functional. Activate Touchpad Hold the Windows logo key and press the R key to open a run command box. Type "control mouse" in the box and press Enter. The Mouse Properties control panel window opens. Click the "Device Settings" tab. Click the Lenovo Touchpad in the "Devices" list and click the "Enable" button to activate the Touchpad. Click the "OK" button to save your changes. Your Lenovo's touchpad is unlocked and ready for use. Lenovo support

Touchpad as stopped working

Are you sure you did not lock the touchpad?
Some laptops will have a button at the top of the touchpad in the middle that locks or unlocks the touchpad.

Some laptops provide a feature where you have to tap twice in the upper left hand corner of the touch pad to lock or unlock it.

Some laptops will require a keystroke to lock or unlock the touchpad. Normally you will have to Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key to hit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square which represents the touchpad.

Download and reinstall the drivers.
Get onlineand got to In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.

Running W7 on an Acer Aspire laptop and the double tap to select function doesn't work. I have to right click and open to select or open a page or folder. i tried everything on the Elan mouse...


You do not identify your laptop model.

Try toggling the central button which on some laptops locks un unlock the touchpad/mouse controls.

If this is not the problem, reinstall the touchpad drivers from the driver CD or downloaded from the Acer website to clear any possible corruption. > support > driver downloads

If this does not solve the problem there may be a hardware fault with the touchpad.

An experienced technician would have to open the laptop and lift the chasis cover to isolate the touchpad and check for a loose cable, liquid spillage damage or component failure.

A replacement touchpad itself will not be expensive and the cost of repair should not be prohibitive.

If the fault is in the motherboard contorller/connector of the touchpad, then repair (replacing the motherboard) may be uneconomical.

a USB mouse will work just fine on a laptop.

I hope this helps.

How to unlock cursor

You can't lock or unlock a cursor. What you have is a problem with your touchpad. Some computers have a little switch (many times a button near the touchpad or a keystroke combo of the FN key + a special function key that turns the touchpad on or off.
See if you can find that combo--there should be a picture of a touchpad on one of the special function keys.
Othewise, you will have to use an external mouse.

The TouchPad is turned on at the factory. When the TouchPad zone is active, the light is off.
To turn the TouchPad on and off, quickly double-tap the TouchPad off indicator.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Touchpad cursor is freezing up

Sounds like your low on memory, very low in other words it's dipping onto the hard drive to help with the mouse. upgrade the memory or use a less intensive antivirus, like nod32 or a free one like Microsoft security essentials.
