Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop
I have the solution...
u see where the switch on button is ? next to it there are two buttons ...ones for stopping internet connection ...thats the one on the right. the one on the left is the one for locking the touchpad
if that button has a orange light blinking on it it means its locked ..
so just push the button and see if it works :) .

I HAVE THE SOLUTION!!!
The Microsoft Driver Updater is not working in all computers!
You can install the free driver update software DriverMax, or you can uninstall and install the touchpad driver, you can find the touchpad via Google.

Chocoboloni -- good man! I found the solution in an Ireland/UK blog after reinstalling the latest touchpad driver from OEM and it touchpad still didn't work. I started my dual boot system with linux and still no touchpad. Oh no! I have a hardware problem I thought! However, the blog stated check for touchpad toggle button or switch first. I looked up the owners manual online and voila! The touchpad power button was to the left of the laptop power button! It was an idiotic hardware problem of touching the touchpad button and turning it on! Boy this stuff makes you feel stupid for not paying attention!

On Acer 5732Z there is a button that disables the touch pad next to the power button [on the left]. The icon is a rectangle with a hand pointing on it.
press the button to toggle the touch pad on and off.
