Acer laptop touchpad dont work


In the notification area (bottom right) there should be an icon called Synaptics Pointing Device. Right click it and make sure tap to click is checked. If it is not, click to check it. If it is already checked, your touch pad may have a glitch.

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.

Can't "tap" on my Dell touchpad


I had the same problem after purchasing an HP laptop with a Synaptics TouchPad. After using a wireless mouse for awhile, the TouchPad stopped working. The TouchPad light was white, indicating it was enabled. No TouchPad devices was listed anymore in the Mouse Properties in the Control Panel. I tried reloading the driver but nothing changed.

After shutting down the laptop and removing the battery (according to owner’s manual) it worked again. After turning on the laptop, make sure the TouchPad works. Then go to Control Panel, Mouse, Device Settings tab, and make sure a Synaptics TouchPad is listed in the Devices list and that the Enable button is grayed out.

How do you change from a single to double click on the pad of my laptop so that in a moving truck I am able to control the computer


I am not sure if you're asking about how to change the settings to make a single tap on the touchpad function like double click. You can go to control panel>mice or touchpad.

If you're just asking how to do double click on the touchpad, by default, it's set to tapping the touchpad twice. You can change change the speed settings in control panel too.

Toshiba notebook touchpad tap doesnt work


Goto 'Control Panel - Mouse - Device Settings, Highlight the device in the list and then click settings. It Might just be that it needs re-configuring. Devices like this tend to loose there configuration due to being used so much and of course the ammount of pressure put on them. There is alot you can reset here. The touch pad does alot more than you think, We just dont bother to look at the settings because we are too busy looking at the screen,and rightly so. Im not saying this will rectify the problem but its worth a try.

Go to acer website and download that model manual, make sure you have ADOBE READER on this machine..If your pointer is not working then you need to download the touchpad driver or if you are using a mouse then it may be a bad one.
