The only possible reason that i can think of is that ur AC adapter is not the correct adapter for ur computer, if its not the correct charger contact dell.com and u can get the original charger for you laptop for under 60 dollars.

Dell inspiron 6400 touchpad scroll not working with window 7 ultimate


It may be that you have not got the updated driver for it. if you on dells support website you can find drivers for your dell.
heres a link to dell site you should try trackpaddriverurl
click the download button and install the driver, or you can perform a windows update that should find the right drivers.
i dont think dell offers windows 7 drivers for your machine but the vista ones should work fine. but if not go to synaptics website here and scroll down for the newest drivers for the trackpad (youd want the xp/vist/windows 7 32bit)

Try going to Control Panel - Hardware and sound - mouse. Once you have the menu for the mouse open, go to device settings. Click settings, and all of the advanced controls for the functions of your mouse pad can be found there.

My laptop touchpad doesnt work properly when i charge my laptop.


If your new adapter is not compatible with your Acer Aspire in voltage and current, your laptop maybe can't work well. Check your new adapter and ensure if it is the same with the original adapter.

Touchpad not working


Hello, my best solution would be to check ebay and order one there. If you are familiar with removing the power button bezel, do so and remove the keyboard as well. Then check the connection for the mouse. Its a small little ribbon cable coming from the mouse area.
Here is a direct link you can get these parts from:

I hope you have a great day, Please rate my solution.
