I have an Ace Aspire 311-1566 and I was on internet getting ready to type an address in address bar when the mouse froze. I rebooted and windows started OK and got to log in screen and still no mouse or keyboard. I thought is was maybe a bios issue and still no sure but I unsoldered the CMOS battery and resoldered to try and reset and they still don't function. I myself have worked on a lot of computers and never ran into this problem. I have also always used a usb chill pad to keep it cool. I also reformatted hard drive by using an external usb drive case and reinstalled harddrive to do a recovery because I did create 7 recovery disk when I purchased it in Nov 06. I also went to a computer store to purchase a usb keyboard and before I buy I connected it to see if it worked and it did not function, also usb mouse did not function. Everthing else works fine except touchpad and keyboard. Any ideas are appreciated. Like I said usb works because my chill pad and usb mouse lights up. My mouse is stuck in middle of screen.
Really, did not want to reinstall system, so keep looking and thinkinking about a solution. This patch works for getting the mouse to function, not sure if it will fix the targus presenter until further testing is complete.

I suppose there is no hardware fault. Please reinstall touchpad drivers from the following website and try going into Mouse settings and check if scroll bar is enabled. Install the one apppropriate to your hardware for eg if your touchpad is ALPS install ALPS driver.
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.

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 If your locked touchpad is due to a corrupt or outdated device driver, then your touchpad is now unlocked and functional.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.

You have asked two separate unrelated questions here. First, we need to know what you have tried to connect wirelessly. The second problem is probably due to you inadvertently touching the touchpad while typing. This is quite common. I normally solve it by disabling the touchpad and using a wireless mouse. If you don't wish to go the mouse route, practice holding your hands differently so you don't bend your wrists and allow your thumbs to get close to the touchpad when typing.
It's possible that something uninstalled the devices from Windows. You can try connecting an external keyboard and mouse, then check the Device Manager to see if it flags any hardware problems.
Another possibility is that the flat cables connecting the keyboard and touchpad to the main board have come loose. To check the cables you need to remove any screws securing the keyboard and pop off the top edge trim to lift the keyboard up.
Dust has built up in and around the touch pad. Purchase a can of pc dust buster, and give it a blast in and around all keys and the touchpad. You may have one sticky key which is causing the pad to behave erratically.
