The guy above was mistakenly wrong you can find sites that take you step by step through changing a faulty mousepad as well as buying a new one.It sounds like you need a new track pad band that attache to your keyboard faulty.:)

Could be damage to the sensors under the trackpad. This is no DIY, I t will cost ot have a tech look at it, in the meantime, plug a mouse in to the USB so you can at least use it. It should be under warranty, so take it in to them and it might be free!

My cursor on my HP doesn't work. don't want to use a mouse.


i'm sure that there's a button to lock the trackpad,it's near the panel.you need to press it once again to turn the panel on
I think it's right above the trackpad
or look on your laptops keyboard for a picture like trackpad press it with the function Fn button at the same time
or it should be the hardware
the trackpad cable maybe doesn't installed properly,not locked or something

Presario C714NR gr983UA#ABA ALPS touchpad does not work I have updated the BIOS and uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers but it still does not work


I had a similar issue with my ASUS. Try finding a program on your computer other than the Control Panel that controls the trackpad. For instance mine is Elan Smart-Pad. Usually working with some of the configurations in the program reinitialize the trackpad. If that doesn't work make sure that it isn't turned of due to keyboard interference (hitting a button that turns the trackpad off). Hopefully that isn't the case though.

go to the blackberry website and get a phone number. Phone them up and ask if they know how to fix it and if they replace trackpads for your model. If that doesn't work search around on the internet, many sites will offer mobile parts quite cheap

Using the trackpad on my Macbook Pro I cannot drag pics or files about the desktop. And my Preview has stopped working.


Best thing to do is use time machine to restore your computer to a time you knew it was working properly. If you have not backed up using time machine, a good idea would be to reinstall the system to see if things are working properly. it may take a while to reinstall everything, but could be a good process to watch the trackpad and if it corrupts when you install something specific. i know this might sound trivial, clean the trackpad and see if that makes a difference. good luck

Hardware or software?


None of that has anything to do with your mouse. You might want to check your settings for your mouse under the control panel. Sounds like they're switched around. Reply with the version of Windows you have and I will walk you through checking your settings.


Other ideas:
If you use an external mouse (USB) all the time, try the trackpad and see if it works properly. If it does, then you have a bad USB mouse.

If you use the trackpad all the time, hook up a USB mouse and see if that works properly. If it does, you have a bad trackpad.

If both work the same way, then it is software related, and you'll have to figure out what's causing it to act the way it does. Just respond and I'll come up with some things to check.

Keyboard locks randomly after login


Sound like you might have a virus - try running antivirus program - such as Avast or Antivir - which is free.
If that doesn't work, then try doing a System Restore - if that doesn't work, then do a System Recovery complete re-install - but back up your pictures and documents first as you will lose everything and you'll be starting over again fresh.

My friend's touch pad on his Acer Aspire 5100 won't work. We've tried re-installing the driver but it still won't respond. Please help.


Try to clean around the edges of the trackpad with a can of compressed air, as sometimes gunk will form on the outside areas and will cause your trackpad to not work.
