If you have an old PS/2 Mouse lying around, plug that into your PC and try to reload the drivers from Acer's site through Control Panel. Usually the driver download will come with a readme on how to install it. If that doesn't work, try calling Acer's tech support line. If your computer is still under warranty, they may do one of the following
-Send a replacement Touchpad
-Send a replacement touchpad with a techie to install it
-Ask you to send your laptop away to them so they can fix it.

In case of the first, look on their website for a maintinence manual, it should say in there how to fix it.
In case of the last, make sure you back up your data before sending it away, strange things have been known to happen.

Make sure that your driver is loaded by going to Start-->Right click My Computer and choose properties. Go to the Hardware tab and click on the Device Manager button.

This will bring up a new window. Look for anything that has a yellow exclamation point or a red X. If your touchpad has either then there is a problem when it loads.

If not, it may be hardware related and you'll have to have a tech check it our or just use a usb mouse.

The touchpad and scroll on my acer aspire 5734z does not work


It sounds like you've accidentally locked the touchpad. To unlock it hit the Fn key (lower left corner, between the CTRL and WIN buttons, it should be labeled with blue Fn label) and F7. That's Fn+F7, press and hold the Fn key, and then hit and release the F7 key, and then release the Fn key. On my Aspire this is the combination to toggle on and off the touchpad. It may be a different combination on your laptop but the rule of thumb is that you need the Fn key and one of the F1-F12 keys. The correct Function key will be labeled with a rectangle and a hand over it, illustrating a touchpad. Once you locate the key, press it and the Fn key as I explained above, and that should be it.

My touchpad mouse is not working


you can try pressing fn-f7 to turn it back on.. hold the fn key like a shift key, then tap f7 (it turns the touchpad on and off on the zg5 series units.) the icon looks like a touchpad with a finger.

Mousepad not working


Hello,

Each Touchbad should have basic functionality by default in every Operating system, letting it be used even when no driver is installed. However, try pressing FN and F7 together and see if the touchpad works again. Some people accidently press this FN + F7 key when they mute the sound with the FN + F8 key.

The FN + F7 is there to disable/enable the touchpad as some people use a USB mouse instead of the touchpad.

If you still need the drivers, here are the download links. Please choose desired driver by Operating system and Touchpad brand...

Acer Aspire 5532 touchpad wont work at all. I had to use a usb mouse to be able to get online.


I just fixed this problem...the fn & f7 didnt work... at the top of computer where you turn the machine off and on - there is a button to the left. Press this button [not the on/off btn] and it should work.

After i plugged-in a cord connected to a LCD projector, my touchpad stopped working. What should I do?


You probably pressed fn + F7 by mistake when you were switching to the projector (fn+F5 to change monitor)....fn+F7 disables the touchpad on Acer laptops.

Press fn+F7 again. Betcha that fixes it. If not, let me know and I can help you with troubleshooting :)
