The touchpad on my friends laptop is not woking. I thought he may have disabled it by mistake but changing the settings has failed to make it work. Does he need to download new drivers for it?

Touchpad stopped working when a friend openned the laptop to fix the DC power pin. reinstalled driver, power cycled, disabled and enabled touchpad, still only works with mouse. keyboard works fine


Most probably, your friend disconnected the cable connecting the touchpad to the motherboard while disassembling the laptop to fix the DC power pin, & forgot to reconnect it back.
You will need to partially disassemble the laptop again & reconnect the touchpad to the motherboard.

After i plugged-in a cord connected to a LCD projector, my touchpad stopped working. What should I do?


You probably pressed fn + F7 by mistake when you were switching to the projector (fn+F5 to change monitor)....fn+F7 disables the touchpad on Acer laptops.

Press fn+F7 again. Betcha that fixes it. If not, let me know and I can help you with troubleshooting :)

Touchpad not funjctioning on Toshiba Satellite L40/45 laptop


You might have inadvertedly disabled the touchpad.

1. Press Fn + F9 to enable the touchpad.
This key combination acts as a switch, enabling or disabling the touchpad: press once to enable (if it is disabled), then press again to disable.

2. If the touchpad still doesn't respond, check the settings in the mouse control utility.
Click on the touchpad icon on the right side of the task bar if you see one or click Start button/Settings/Control Panel, select the Mouse icon and Press Enter.
Change the settings if necessary.

Touchpad does not work


if yours is like mine, ive heard this problem more than once... look just above the touchpad and there should be a small button just under the spacebar. make sure though that the lights above it are white instead of orange.
