YOU MAY HAVE ACCIDENTALLY HIT THE FN+F9,F10,F11 OR F12 KEYS SIMULTANEOUSLY. TRY HOLDING DOWN THE FN KEY (NEXT TO THE CTRL KEY) AND LOOK FOR THE SYMBOL UNDER YOUR F9, F10 ETC... KEYS AND THAT SHOULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

Nowadays you can go to the manufacturers website and run a scan for proper drivers. Windows 10 includes security updates, feature updates, and driver updates provided through Windows Update. If a driver or update causes problems, you can uninstall it and block Windows from downloading it again. Download and run the “Show or hide updates” troubleshooter for Windows 10 from Microsoft.

When you run this troubleshooter, it will search for available updates and allow you to “hide” them, preventing Windows from automatically installing them. In the future, you can run this troubleshooter again and unhide the updates when you want to install them. There's a few tutorials on the web just do a search. I have also included a link to one of my favorites.

Touch screen not working


The touchpad on the Acer Aspire is built into the notebook itself, which makes the device much harder to troubleshoot or replace. While you can connect a universal serial bus mouse to the notebook if the touchpad becomes unresponsive, attaching any external device reduces the notebook's portability. Although hardware failure can cause the touchpad to stop working, most device-related problems are due to software settings or other conflicts.

Hardware Conflict
Peripheral devices connected to the Aspire can interfere with the integrated touchpad. Disconnect all of the external devices, except for the power adapter, that are connected to the Aspire; then restart the computer. Test the touchpad after booting into Windows. If the touchpad responds, a hardware device is interfering with the pointing device. Reconnect each device one by one to the notebook, testing the touchpad throughout. If the pointing device stops responding after connecting a particular device, the component is interfering with the touchpad. Go to the device manufacturer's website and look up the product model. Check the bulletin board to see if the manufacturer has posted a notice or update addressing issues with device conflicts. If no such update is available, download the latest driver for the component and install it on the computer. b> Disabled Touchpad b> The Acer Aspire 5516 comes with a preset group of keyboard combinations, called hotkeys, that are used to enable or disable devices, configure sound volume and screen brightness, and control the notebook mode. The hotkeys "Fn" and "F7" turn the touchpad on and off. If the integrated mouse is unresponsive, hold down "Fn" and press "F7"; then test the touchpad to see if the device reactivates. If the touchpad still doesn't work, open Device Manager from within the Control Panel. Expand "Mice and Other Pointing Devices," then right-click the touchpad device. If the touchpad is disabled in Device Manager, you'll see the "Enable" option in the context menu. Click it to turn the touchpad back on; then restart the computer. Corrupt Driver b> Windows Vista talks to the touchpad through a program called a device driver. The driver enables Windows Vista to "see" the touchpad and send it instructions. Once the driver communicates these instructions to the touchpad, the touchpad informs the processor that it needs to perform a task, and a specific set of code is performed. If the driver for the touchpad is outdated or corrupt, or if the driver isn't compatible with the OS -- Acer offers touchpad drivers for Windows XP and Windows 7, but these drivers won't work with Windows Vista -- the touchpad becomes unresponsive. Expand the "Mouse and Other Pointing Devices" section from within Device Manager; if Windows detects a problem with the driver, it places a yellow exclamation point or red "X" next to the device. Double-click the touchpad driver to see the error message; then look up the message on the Microsoft Support website for further assistance. b> Touchpad Settings b> Mouse Properties, accessed through the Control Panel, contains several different configuration settings that can alter how the touchpad behaves on the Aspire 5516. On the "Device Settings" tab is the option "Disable Internal Pointing Device When External USB Pointing Device Is Attached." As the option states, if an external mouse is connected to the Aspire 5516, the touchpad will stop working; disable this option if you're using an external pointing device. Clicking the "Settings" button opens the "Properties for Synaptics Touchpad" window. On this screen are the "PalmCheck" and "Touch Sensitivity" options. If PalmCheck is set too high, or Touch Sensitivity too low, the touchpad won't respond to normal touch, making the device seem unresponsive. Hope this helps.

Toshiba P25 cannot read cd


Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

My touch pad is not working properly, the cursor is bouncing all over the screen have a toshiba satellite a135


Mouse dancing all over the place? Sounds like a possible driver issue…this is generally not a settings issue. There could be at least two possibilities for this action, one being a malware (spyware) problem and the second being a corrupt touchpad driver. If you think you may have malware, go to www.filehippo.com and download MalwareBytes Anti-Malware Tool, it is a free download and free to use. Install and perform a quick scan and delete anything it finds.
As for the driver issue, you could just try to update the touchpad driver by going to the touchpad manufacturer support, or to the laptop manufacturer support site, or do what I do and simply uninstall the device and let windows reinstall it at reboot, that way new drivers will be installed without the possibility of corruption. Go to control panel > Device Manager (In XP, the device manager is in the “System” icon under Hardware), scroll down to the mice and pointing devices line and click on the + sign. Right click on the touchpad and select uninstall. Leave the box empty that says delete software / drivers. You’ll need these if there is no new driver. Now reboot the machine and windows loads will find the new software and will want to install drivers for it. It may even ask if it can search windows update for a fresh driver. Click ok and let windows load up the device, you should be trouble free.

I have a Toshiba Tecra M8 and the touchpad stopped working. I can still use a USB mouse, but i've tried the FN F9 key to make sure that the touchpad is enabled but it still isn't working. Are there drivers...


Check in the device manager and see if the touchpad is listed under pointing devices.If it is not there try add hardware and see if it detects the hardware. If it is there check to see if it says device is working properly. Sometimes touchpads require software to operate properly so check and see if software was uninstalled. You can also download the drivers/software from Toshiba, try removing the touchpad in the device manager and then re-booting the computer. When windows re-boots it should start installing new hardware found. Use the driver/software you downloaded from Toshiba. If none of these work your touchpad may be bad.

Touch pad stopped working


I recommend you to uninstall and reinstall touchpad drivers to isolate the issue.
Press Windows key and R. Type devmgmt.msc in Run window and click on OK. Click on "+" sign beside Mice and other pointing devices in Device Manager.
Right click on Touchpad and select Uninstall.
You will be prompted to restart the computer.
Windows detects touchpad and the touchpad drivers will be reinstalled automatically.
You can also install touchpad drivers from your notebook support website.
You can reinstall the drivers from the below links:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5920.html
http://www.laptops-drivers.com/acer-notebooks/download-drivers-acer-aspire-5920-notebooks.html
However I suggest you to install the drivers by visiting the acer support website.
Also perform windows update.

Keyboard and touchpad


Have you attempted to use an external mouse? - USB - if so does that work?
if it does - Click on START - Control Pannel - Keyboard (& Mouse Respectively) - Click on the hardware Tab - Select the relevant Key Board, Click on Properties - this will give you a device status - if is is not working properly - click Trouble shoot & follow the onscreen instructions. - If is "Working Properly" click on Drivers - check your driver is updated, or roll back.

If you happend to be on a server and the keyboard and/or mouse have stopped responding - you will need to restart (The Server). Ensure that the Keyboard and mouse are on PS2 connections and not USB - the Severs do not like USB Connected Comms Devices. I have found if there are wireless mouse's &/or Keybourd's &/or any USB connected Mouse/Keyboard, they tend to somehow interfere with each other (i.e. the sever with one of the terminals) - only remedy I have ever managed to make work is restart.

Hope this helps
