Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Acer Aspire 5532 notebook running Windows 7. Soon after I got the computer, I went into the control panel and changed the touchpad settings to disable the "tap" feature in order to keep my text from getting jumbled up every time the edge of my thumb accidentally touched it. Recently, it re-enabled itself, and I have tried to go into the mouse settings to disable it again, but the option is no longer there. How can I disable this? I am incredibly frustrated and I am seriously considering fixing it with a very heavy blunt object. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

You could try and re install the touchpad drivers, that should bring the option back.
You could also try uninstalling the touchpad from device manager, windows will pick the device up automatically and try and reinstall it.
Right click on computer / manage / device manager

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...


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

How do i use my webcam on acer 5532


You don't have a web-cam on your Acer Aspire 5532. Sorry, I actually bought a brand new Acer Aspire 5532 with Windows 7. It's really nice but that little black circle at the top of your screen is not a camera. I do believe you can have one installed though.

Good luck,
