Sensor/mouse is not working on laptop. I've tried plugging in a wireless mouse which also did not work. Any "do it myself" advice?


Have you tried using the function key (button with Fn) combined with one of the F (F1, F2, etc.) keys? One of the combinations actually disables the touchpad for your laptop. The combination for my own laptop is Fn+F7 but as that's an Acer I don't know which one it'll be for you but the F key you're looking for should have an icon with a small square and a hand on it.

If that doesn't work you might want to try a windows system restore (it's in your start menu under Accessories --> System Tools) back to when your touchpad was last working. That fixed it for a classmate of mine a while ago.

If THAT doesn't work there's always the reinstalling of drivers but I'd save that as a last resort.

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...

My acer 5532 touchpad has suddenly stopped working... any ideas? mouse doesnt move and usb wireless mouse doesnt work either.. although it does on myu sister's laptop


Thanks. The Fn F7 idea did not work, the Enable/Disable toggle in Control Panel made no difference BUT the simple pressing of the TINY finger pointing next to the power button DID work. Duh!

Mouse pad stopped working after kids pressed


I'm assuming you are talking about the touchpad - they may have hit one of your hotkeys - fn+f7 will toggle the touchpad on and off - on my aspire 3050 anyway - try fn+f1 to get a list of the hotkeys and what they do to make sure

Touchpad doesn't work


Look at your Function keys (F1-F12). There should be a icon of a touchpad or something similar on one of the keys. Most likely it is F7.

If you can find it, press the Function button (FN, next to CTRL) and F7 (or whatever key designates the touchpad), and see if this enables it.

If not, go to your control panel and click mouse properties. THere may be a tab for the touchpad where you can enable/disable it.

I have problem in typing. When I type sentences, frequently it jumps to another space. What is the problem with my laptop (acer 3683 WXMi).thanks for your assistance.


most likely your hand is touching the touchpad and moveing the mouse and eventually clicking (this can be done by taping the touchpad) I suggest while your typeing on your laptop to turn your touchpad off, its a combination of 2 buttons FN (function) and a F1-F12 key, look around, there should be small images on your f1-12 keys. but Fn+F7 should work on your acer to disable and enable the touchpad.

If you need more asistance, let me know. Good luck.
