You can use the serial port if its working connect the serial/usb adaptor to the serial port interface then connect a usb keyboard/mouse to retrieve the information on your drive u can use that temporary till you change the keyboard

My touchpad has stoped working on my Acer Aspire 5732 Z


Hello,

Sometimes it differs but you can try pressing FN and F7 together on your keyboard to see if that will enable the touchpad again.FN should be next to your left-ctrl on your laptop keyboard.

On other Acers, there's either a seperate button to enable the touchpad or a different Function key. See on your keyboard the function keys and choose the one that looks like a tochpad, with a pointing hand. Sometimes the icon on the key just looks like a mini-touch-pad.

Touchpad not responding in netboook


There's a little button right above the touchpad. If the light on this button is orange, the touchpad is disabled. Press it again until the light is white again and your touchpad should work.

I'm not sure I understand completely the problem you are having with your Aspire. However, it seems you are having problems with keyboard, touchpad etc.

One thing I realized a few months ago, mine started going crazy. I searched the web all over and found that REMOVING the battery completely solved the problems with the keyboard and touchpad problems.

I have to use mine without the battery in. Only plugged in.

Try removing the battery, leaving it out, plugging in the power supply and see if that does not fix the craziness of the touchpad and keyboard.

Good luck!

Acer Aspire 3004 keyboard and touchpad error


Just resolved same problem on Acer Aspire 5000 by removing the battery, then goto device manager and disable "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" you can then put your existing battery back into the latop with any problems with the keyboard and touchpad. Mad solution I know but it worked for me

Touchpad inop and buttons


Have you tried, system restore to a previous date when the touchpad was working?

You can also try and uninstall drivers and reinstall in Safe Mode, make sure you have the latest drivers from the manufacturer.
