Question about Acer Aspire 4520-5582 Notebook

2 Answers

Once a mouse was attached the Acer Aspire 5532 touch-pad no longer works. When the mouse is disconnected the touch-pad still will not work. I do not see a toggle button to use to toggle between the mouse and the touch-pad. When I use the notebook away from my desk I would like to use the touch-pad and not have to always bring and attach the mouse. How can I get the touch-pad to operate again? What is the toggle to go between the two? Thank you! Diane

HI Diane,

Since you haven't provided the Windows Operating System version (XP/Vista/7 or other?), I'll have to provide the general scope of what you should try.

1. Go to the Control Panel and open up your Mouse section
2. Look through the different tabs until you find an option to either "Enable" your touchpad, or one that says the equivalent of "Disable Touchpad when external mouse or device is connected"

The idea is to accomplish your aim by working with the mouse settings provided for your system. Good luck and go easy on the "blue thumb". Please provide more specific information before a negative response.

Thanks

Laptop Touch Pad will not work


if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing

Mouse quit working on my Lap Top it is a Aspire


First of all check whether the touch pad is lock (Fn+F7(?)). If you use an external mouse/ usb mouse, check usb cable connection, as long as you didn't drop it on the floor it should be ok. If the built in touch pad doesn't work, could be caused by ribbon cable connectivity that has dirt or moist. To fix it need to open the upper case
