Touchpads are notorious for going out. Many people put too much pressure on them and they get stuck in a down position or think of two pieces of paper glued together. Most of the time you can tell because the mouse cursor (arrow) will move on the screen by itself either top to bottom or left to right. You try and put it on something and it is shaky and wont stay. If you are getting no response at all from it you should try reinstalling the driver from ACER support or (they make the touchpads) You can try the following and then yes if under warranty take it back. Taking your finger and with medium pressure go around the outside of the track pad surface and then work way to center. Dont use any type of cleaner but see if any crumbs or debris has gotten lodged along the edges where the pad meets teh laptop case. Good Luck

Why did my touchpad mouse disable?

Either the hardware itself has failed or perhaps the driver has become corrupted. Go into the device manager, locate the trackpad driver and delete it. Exit the device manager and reboot. The device driver should be reloaded (trackpad seen as a new device), you may need your Windows CD but then again sometimes you don't.

Hi there,

Check if the drivers for the touchpad is installed. Usually you can find an icon at the system tray for your touchpad. Check device manager if there is a problem under mouse and other pointing devices. You can also try double clicking the device under that category and try to roll back the driver if possible. If it still does not work, try running a hardware diagnostics on the touchpad. It could be a hardware problem.

Try using the function keys to enable the mouse. I'm unsure which of the 'F' keys it is, but if you can locate the picture, then hold down the Fn key + the appropriate 'F' key and hope that the mouse starts to work. Also you can try loading into the BIOS, hitting F9 to reload refaults, and then F10 to save and exit. Failing these both, best option would be to go back to retailer. Good luck

Touch pad center click button no longer works

Near your clock, you'll usually find an icon for your touch pad (probably synaptics). Open this & select mouse properties, in there look under Device Settings & try the "Reset Devices" icon.

If that don't work, Click start>control panel (classic view)>mouse.
On the Touchpad tab, make sure the 'tapping' box is checked . Click apply, click ok.

If that doesn't work, click start>run, type devmgmt.msc
and click ok.
Click the plus to expand Mice and Other Pointing Devices.
Right click and uninstall any mouse or touchpad listed.
Let Windows rediscover and reinstall the touchpad drivers.

Good Luck!
