Touchpad mouse problem

I have an Acer Aspire 3050-1733. I cannot get the mouse to work. I've reloaded the drivers, I've checked device manager and there are no conflicts anywhere. I can attach an external mouse and things work fine. I've gone into the touchpad configure menu and it is enabled.

It worked one minute and then just stopped. What could I be over looking?

Tried to "clean up" some things and pretty sure I deleted my touchpad driver. I've tried to download from acer website, but almost impossible to do without "mousing" abilities

Ok acer site is not the most helpfull website,even if your mouse is working .
you seem to have checked just about everything ,but here's a thought,

make sure that the touch pad is turned on,a switch just above it, on most laptops,you should also see a light on ,maybe red for off blue for on.

clean the touch pad using a soft damp cloth (not wet) and a little soap ,as it may have become a little greasy.

another option is to use a friend's or family pc to download the driver onto a disc/usb stick,or use the external mouse on your own laptop.

good luck
Terry

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.

Touchpad nor external mouse will work on my acer aspire 1640z


control panel > device manager > scroll down to mice and pointing devices > if touchpad is listed (may be symantic or alps} highlight and click uninstall. Reboot the laptop, windows will be forced to reload the drivers when it recognizes the device. It may ask you if it can search windows update for a fresh driver, allow it to complete the install. reboot

Sounds like a hardware problem with your trackpad or your keyboard. I suggest attaching an external mouse and keyboard, then disable the touchpad and keyboard drivers in device manager. Reboot and see if it still happens

If you have got a usb mouse plug it into your computer then go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager and go to pointing devices. Right click on the + sign next to keyboard and touchpad, click on uninstall. Then reboot your machine, take the usb mouse out. Windows will reload the correct drivers for the keyboard and touchpad as new hardware and your problem should be resolved.

I hope this helps

I believe your windows is corrupt.
Try to reload your operating system, i have seen the windows corrupted and cause problem like yours.
If you have usb mouse (external), use the usb mouse and you can check in device manager,
I believe you will see many "!" mark on the drivers.

so solution is reload the operating system.
Good Luck
