Question about PC Laptops

Changing touchpads Can a touch pad from the Toshiba satellite A25 series be installed in an Acer TravelMate 4670, replacing the touchpad? I find the touchpad on my old Toshiba laptop to be much more responsive than on my new Acer laptop.

In theory it would be possible, I can't tell by the documentation whether the touchpad is a seperate peace from the palm rest or not. Most laptops either build it into the palm rest which would not work for you, or the cable might be the wrong adapter/ too short etc.

Try re-installing your touchpad driver and touchpad on/off utility from here:

Just select:
Product Type - Notebooks

Utility)
Then hit search at the bottom to find it for the operating system you use.

Touchpad won't work


What's wrong with the touchpad? Rather than fix it if it is broken just replace it. In fact you can replace the whole palmrest which includes the touchpad that does not cost a lot.

Maybe you turned the touch pad off.
Click Start/Control Panel and look for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sure you don't have the touchpad disabled.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on the button that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upper left hand corner of the touchpad.

Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key to hit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents the touchpad.

Maybe you just need to reinstall the touchpad drivers.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

Touchpad notworking


Have you tried reinstalling the driver, Also for now you can use a usb mouse in it's place. Rarely do touchpads stop working all together, also I may be wrong but the manual for that computer should also have a a way to turn on and disable the touchpad with a key or series of Keys.

Mine has a small button above the touch pad that turns it on and off.

Touch pad refuses to work


Try going to Toshiba's support page and re-install the driver for the touchpad. If this does not work. You may need to replace the touchpad itself.

Acer aspire touchpad over sensitive


Hi,
Your laptop should have software pre-installed for your touchpad. This should probably be in the Control Panel. Once you find the software there should be options to change the sensitivity. Hope I helped.

Touch pad possessed.


To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Alternatively, you can permanently disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. Advanced users can disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 when the computer is booting to enter BIOS settings]

For extra USB ports, purchase a USB hub($15 -$20). That way you can add at least 4 USB ports to your laptop.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
