Hi,
few things can be tried out here.
go to control panel..mice...click on the tab that says tapping. check the settings.
also check the drivers in device manager under mice and other pointing devices.
in case you see a yellow bang sign or the drivers are not present you can download the touchpad synaptics drivers from http://global.acer.com/support/download.htm

Task bar at bottom with font size on it has gone


The task bar is an important part of the Windows experience. Not only does it contain a variety of information including what time it is and how much battery life is left it's the way most Windows users open programs and documents. As such, the task bar disappearing is a stressful thing, but fixing this problem on your own is possible.

Auto-Hide Sometimes you may think your task bar has disappeared, but it's really just been set to "auto-hide." Move your mouse to the bottom of the screen and see if it pops up automatically. Then check all four sides of the screen. If the task bar was simply auto-hiding, disable this feature by right-clicking the task bar, clicking "Properties" and unchecking "Auto-hide the Taskbar." b> Reboot b> If your task bar disappears, and auto-hide isn't the culprit, the first thing you should do is reboot your computer this fixes the problems in most instances. Only one problem: because your task bar disappeared you can't access the "Start" menu in order to shut down the computer. Instead press "Alt," "Ctrl," and "Delete" at the same time and press "Restart" in the window that pops up after doing so. Your computer should restart, and in most cases your task bar should come back when it restarts. b> More Options b> If rebooting doesn't fix cause the task bar to reappear, your computer might have a problem starting explorer.exe, the program that displays the task bar and desktop icons in Windows. Press "Ctrl," "Shift," and "Esc" at the same time to bring up the System Manager. Then click "File," followed by "New Task (Run)" and type "explorer.exe" in the dialogue box that pops up. You now have your task bar and desktop icons back. Reboot to see if they stick around after rebooting. If not, repeat the process in the above paragraph. When you have you task bar back click "Start," then "Programs," then "Accessories," then "System Tools" and then "System Restore." Restore the computer to a time when everything was working fine by clicking that date on the calendar. Reboot to see if this fixes the problem. If none of this brought back your task bar permanently it may be time to run a repair install. Change My Task Bar b> In Windows operating systems, the taskbar shows your currently active windows and programs, shortcuts to your favorite programs, the time, your volume control, active programs and the "Start" button. You may want to change the taskbar so it has a different look or to customize it to suit your needs when using your computer. Windows XP users have fewer options than Windows Vista or Windows 7 users, but all operating system owners can make changes to the taskbar.

Right-click in your taskbar. Left-click on "Lock the taskbar" if it is currently checked. Otherwise, click back onto the taskbar. Click on any empty area of the taskbar. Drag the taskbar to the position (bottom, top, left or right side of the screen) you desire, and release it. Re the taskbar by moving your cursor to where the taskbar ends. Your cursor will change to a two-way arrow. Left-click and drag the taskbar until it reaches the you want. Move your cursor over the series of separator bumps between the Start button and the Quick Launch menu, and the Quick Launch menu and the active programs section of the taskbar, to alter the of the Quick Launch menu and the active programs area. Right-click the taskbar, and left-click on "Lock the taskbar" once you've completed the changes you wish to make. b> Change Taskbar Options b> Right-click on the taskbar, and left-click on "Properties." Modify the taskbar settings so that it appears the way you like. You can decide whether to show the Quick Launch menu (a series of icons for your most commonly used programs), to show thumbnails for your active programs in Windows 7 and Windows Vista and to group similar active programs, and to automatically hide the taskbar or to always have it on top of other windows. Click on the "Notification" tab in Windows 7 or Vista to modify the way the notification area to the far right appears. Stay on the taskbar tab in Windows XP. Hide inactive icons, and decide which information to show, including the clock or the volume, power and network icons in Windows 7 and Vista. Click on the "Customize" button to specify which programs or notifications should always show, never show or grow inactive with disuse. Click on the "Toolbars" tab in Windows 7 or Vista to specify which toolbars you wish to see in the taskbar. Your options will vary according to the programs you have installed on your computer but may include the Quick Launch, address bar and links toolbars. Click the "Apply" button, then "OK" once you have made the changes you desire. Hope this helps.

Missing task bar - running vista


Sounds like explorer.exe is not running:

1. Hit Ctrl + Shift + Esc at same time.
2. Windows Task Manager should open.
3. Hit File on top menu.
4. Select New Task.
5. Type explorer.exe and hit OK

That should bring your task bar back.

Com puter monitor is disorted with colors at the bottom


You can only be sure it is the monitor if you try it on another machine to see how it reacts. Ask a friend.

Meantime.

Shut your pc down - remove the power cord. Take a deep breath and plug it back in. NOW -- turn the pc on and tap - TAP - not tap tap tap - like that - but - tap --------------tap---------------------------tap--------------------------------------tap
Like that - F8 - tap F8 - this will cause you to go into SAFE MODE - this gives you only basic use of drivers that effect the way your monitor does it's job. If it is GOOD -- the screen is like you want it as far as clarity. -- go to my Find your CONTROL PANEL if you must - search it - - right click and select Device Manager - REMOVE the Monitor - what ever it shows, It might display a word like - plug and play -etc - Default Monitor - what ever it shows - remove it - reboot the pc and the driver will auto reload. You have most likely gotten a corrupt driver. If not you will of course need to replace the one you have. Try another monitor first to be sure.

Best of it

Cursor moves but when i tap it nothing happens?


Down on your task bar on the right there is a little screen that shows a green circle when you move your cursor. This is the Synaptics Pointing Device. Place your cursor over that and click your left 'mouse' button (just below where you tap). You will see 'tap to click'. If you click on that it will change it to your 'tap' function. That should solve your problem, hopefully. Hope this helps.

My touchpad will not respond when I tap it anymore. I have to use the left button. I used to be able to tap or double tap the touchpad and it would act like the left mouse button. All of a sudden it...


On the bottom bar by the clock, if your computer is newer there should be a small icon that controls your mouse. Simply right click on it and check the box "tap to click" or similar. Hope this helps!
Please rate me if i am helpful.
Thank you.
