SOURCE: Synaptics Touchpad Enhancements stops working

I had this problem on my Dell Inspiron 1318, so I went on to their support centre and through the Chat to a technical advisor tool, they uninstalled and reinstalled the driver which controls the touchpad and now the problem is completely gone. I suggest you contact Acer or the customer service of the company that you bought your laptop from and ask them to do something similar. I didn't even need to send my laptop back, Dell were able to take control of my laptop remotely and it only took about an hour in total. Hopefully your provider will be able to offer a similar service.

You may even be able to do this yourself if you can figure out which touchpad driver you need and look on the Acer/laptop maker website support and look at updates for drivers or downloads or something similar. Personally I found using the company's expertise much easier.

SOURCE: How to enter into BIOS when trackpoint was broken.

Hi there.
Its something to do with the trackpoint, possibly the cable has become loose.
* If an emergency power down is made by switching the system off during or while an application is open, then immediately switching the system on creates a 8611 error.
* Repeatedly turning power off and back on without properly shutting down or allowing the system to shut itself down.

Solution
Wait at least 6 seconds or longer after shutting down the system or before restarting to correct the 8611 error.
See if that gets rid of the error, if not it could be a loose cable to the trackpoint.

Good luck

SOURCE: My touchpad right and left click button stopped working

is there a touch pad lock button, that locks the pad? if there isn't then there is most likely excess debris or dust or something under there that needs to be blown out with airisol can. If both of those solutions don't work then i would check to make sure the driver is installed for the touch pad. Good Luck. and i hope it works out.

Hi Leslie,

You can try this first: http://en.kioskea.net/faq/1902-disable-enable-the-touchpad If still can't, check whether your hardware is detected and installed from Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager and look for the touchpad device status. If everything is fine, it might be an hardware issue.

No driver for wireless on my gateway loptop model NV79


Below are links to three versions of the driver for the NV79's wireless LAN. Which is the correct one will depend on the manufacturer of your notebook's on-board wireless card. For simplicity sake, I recommend just downloading and installing all three; your computer will be able to determine which is the correct one.

Here are the links:
Intel: Download
Atheros: Download
Realtek: Download

Each of these links was obtained from Gateway's official driver download web site for the NV79 Series notebook computer (which you can access here).

If you found this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

Gateway NV73 series (Win. 7) Synaptics PS/2 TouchPad not working.


At the top of your keyboard you will find some illuminated icons.
Find the one that looks like a finger on a touchpad and run
your finger over it. This activates or deactivates the touchpad.

Gateway laptop,left touchpad button


You would have to contact Gateway for a new part. You will need a new palm rest that has the touchpad and buttons built into it.
I would try customer service first. I can't find a good link on their home page to get repair parts.
That being said, if the computer is more than a year old, usually try e-bay first. It will be much cheaper. Just look up parts or maybe palm rest for a Gateway (and add your model).
