How do I turn off the touch pad on my Acer Aspire 5742 laptop


Hello,

Thank you for using fixya. My name is Carlo.

There are two ways that you can do to turn off/on the touch pad in your acer aspire.

1. Press FN + F7. It will turn off the touchpad and will turn on once you press the same buttons again.

2. If the buttons do not work. You can do this:

1. Go to control panel>hardware and devices>Devices and Printers>Mouse
2. CLick on the last setting on the right.
3. Click on Disable in the Mouse Properties.
5. Click OK.


Just go to the same area when you want to enable your touchpad again.

I hope this helps.

Carlo

My touchpad mouse is not working


you can try pressing fn-f7 to turn it back on.. hold the fn key like a shift key, then tap f7 (it turns the touchpad on and off on the zg5 series units.) the icon looks like a touchpad with a finger.

Mousepad not working


Hello,

Each Touchbad should have basic functionality by default in every Operating system, letting it be used even when no driver is installed. However, try pressing FN and F7 together and see if the touchpad works again. Some people accidently press this FN + F7 key when they mute the sound with the FN + F8 key.

The FN + F7 is there to disable/enable the touchpad as some people use a USB mouse instead of the touchpad.

If you still need the drivers, here are the download links. Please choose desired driver by Operating system and Touchpad brand...

My mouse pad isnt working but a USB mouse is, tried to use Fn+F7 but didnt work. Any help?


Is there a function key on the laptop? (Fn usually blue ink) is there a key with the symbol that looks like mouse pad. Hold down Fn then the mouse pad key and that should enable the mouse pad.

As you have suggested the F7 key is the one for the mouse pad, and hasn't made any difference, have you somehow corrupted the drivers. You can download them from the acer website.

when did it last work, you cloud try a system restore. Remember to press Fn + F7 again and give it a moment to enable( just in case the last time you tried it, you turned the hardware off despite it's lack of functionality)

My acer 5532 touchpad has suddenly stopped working... any ideas? mouse doesnt move and usb wireless mouse doesnt work either.. although it does on myu sister's laptop


Thanks. The Fn F7 idea did not work, the Enable/Disable toggle in Control Panel made no difference BUT the simple pressing of the TINY finger pointing next to the power button DID work. Duh!
