Gateway Laptop with windows 8. Mouse pointer gone and won't come back

See if the mouse pad has been accidentally turned off. This can be done via the "Function" button on your Gateway laptop. To enable your mouse clicker again on your Gateway, head on over to the "Control Menu" in Windows and double-click on the "Control Panel" icon. Click on the "Mouse" option under the "Printers and Other Hardwareicon1.png" tab. In the next menu that pops up, click on the tab listed as "Device Settings." From this menu, you should be able to locate a listing for the mouse pad on your Gateway laptop. Click on this listing. From here, you should be able to enable the mouse again. Click "OK."
  • Head over to the official Gateway site online (see Resources). The above enabling of the mouse device under "Device Settings" may not have worked. Make your way to the "Software and Drivers" area of the site.
  • Check over your Gateway manual and find your specific serial number for your machine. Enter the number into the Gateway site when prompted and check to see if any driver updates exist for your mouse on your machine. If so, click to download the update, and then double-click the file on your computericon1.png to install it. Restart your Gateway laptop to have the changes take place. Your mouse should now work.

    How can i activate my mouse sensor???

    depending on your laptop this will vary

    If the Fn (Function) button at the bottom left of the keyboard is pressed in conjunction with some other key on the keyboard it can result in the disabling of the mouse pad.

    To enable your mouse pad on a Windows PC go to the Control Menu.

    Under the Printers and Other Hardware option, click on Mouse.

    Then, click on the tab on the top of the pop-up menu that says Device Settings.

    The touch pad for your computer should come up as a selectable option.

    Click on it and you will see the option to enable your device, then click OK


    Right-click on a blank spot on your desktop. Scroll down, select "Personalize" and then choose "Mouse Pointer."

    Click the "Device Settings" tab. Highlight your TouchPad in the "Devices" section. Hit the "Enable" button.

    Click the "Apply" button and then click the "OK" button.


    Click the "Start" button in the lower-left corner of your computer.

    Type "mouse" in the field above the button. Click "Mouse" in the list of items that appear.

    Click the "Device Settings" tab. Highlight the touchpad item in the "Devices" list.

    Click the "Enable" button. Click the "Apply" button and then the "OK" button.

    hope this helps

    The touchpad of my laptop dont work i think that i press something from putton but i dont know what can you help me ?

    Hit the "Windows" button on the keyboard and then use the right-left keys (or hit 'C') to open "Control Panel." From there, again use the right-left keys to get to "Mouse" and then hit "Return."
    Use the right-left keys to toggle between the tabs and open each to investigate whether any boxes had been improperly clicked by accident that cause the touchpad to become unresponsive. But if any of these steps fail to remedy the problem, then the touchpad may need to be repaired or replaced.Or simpily buy a cheap mouse

    Hoped this helped :)

    Touch pad doesn't work

    Determine What's Wrong
    laptop'smag-glass_10x10.gif touch pad basically provides the functionality of a mouse for a desktop PC, typically with two buttons located just below it acting as the left and right click buttons on a desktop computer. A touch pad may be damaged by excessive use or foreign substances such as water, dirt or food items.

    Hit the "Windows" button on the keyboard and then use the right-left keys (or hit 'C') to open "Control Panel." From there, again use the right-left keys to get to "Mouse" and then hit "Return."

    Use the right-left keys to toggle between the tabs and open each to investigate whether any boxes had been improperly clicked by accident that cause the touch pad to become unresponsive. But if any of these steps fail to remedy the problem, then the touch pad may need to be repaired or replaced.

    Repairing/Replacing TouchpadA touch pad assembly cost $100 or more and that's not including replacement installation. Hiring a specialist to replace a damaged touch pad, including parts and labor, may easily cost $200. Unless the laptop in question is worth well over $1,000 and the touch pad is deemed a necessity, such repairs are rarely worth the cost.

    Attempting to replace the touch pad without certain expertise in laptop assembly may be dangerous and/or destructive. Also, getting a replacement part that's not compatible with the laptop may have catastrophic results, including irreversible damage to the laptop.So just attach a mouse to it so you can work easily.Please rate me if this solution works for you

    Thanks......Have a great time.

    Touchpad and cursor keys quit working

    I used to get this problem. It is VERY annoying as you must know. try pushing the windows icon button in the top right corner of your keyboard(thats where it is on my keyboard)then use your arrow keys to scroll up to control panel, select mouse by using arrow keys and then use the tab and arrow keys to open the mouse keypad pagetab and push enable and enter key to turn it on.
    IF WHEN YOU DO THAT AND your in the touchpad properties but there is no 'enable' and it says no hardware detected, then go into the same mouse window from the control panel and go to the hardware tab and either try to update driver or use the trouble shoot button.

    Hope this helped =]

    Not working right click of touch pad of Acer Aspire 4710z


    What operating system are you running? All I could find was a manual for your model:

    If you are using Windows XP, you might try going to Control Panel -> Mouse -> On the first tab (Buttons) check "Switch primary and secondary buttons." then hit "Apply".

    Try left-clicking (currently assigned to be the right-click) on your Start button and see if the menu with "Explore All Users" on the very bottom opens. If it does, then your touchpad is most likely defective and would have to be fixed ( If the menu doesn't come up, then it is a software issue and is 100% fixable.
