Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

Open Question

How do I zoom OUT from the screen? There is nothing in the synaptics pointing device and nothing in the accessibility options, no clues anywhere about how to zoom in or out . My laptop seems to do this randomly, related somehow to touching the touchpad .... I thought there were a couple of function keys with this purpose, but nothing I have found seems to work...(fn and f09, or f10..etc.)

Turn on touchpad


If you are having problems with a laptop touch pad, in control panel, (accessible from your start menu) on top right corner change your view to small icons, and there should be an option for mouse that you can click to access the mouse settings. Likewise you may have a link to a vendor specific mouse software like synaptics pointing devices or the like, that should give you the options necessary to turn touch pad off and on.

Tip

Add multitouch to nearly any laptop


If your laptop has a touchpad made by the Synaptics company, you can install a driver that will enable multitouch gestures like the ones Apple uses. This driver is for HP computers, but Synaptics makes touchpads for nearly every brand, and I have this running on a Dell with no issues. The drivers can be downloaded from this site. Once they are installed, find the Synaptics Pointing Device item in the system tray (near the clock) and open it. Go to the device settings tab, highlight your Synaptics device in the list, and click on settings. All the multitouch options are spread out in the window that opens.

Ha a Toshiba Satellite a100 I can not turn off the touch pad (as I only want to use the mouse). Both touch pad and mouse are working. the laptop had to be reformatted recently and its since then All...


If your computer have a, Synaptics Touchpad you can try these steps:

1. Access the properties of the Synaptics Pointing Device by right-clicking on the system tray icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. If you do not see the icon, open your Control Panel and select the "Performance and Maintenance" option. Click "System", then "Hardware", then "Device Manager" to view the devices on your computer. Open the "Mice and Other Pointing Devices" selection.

2. Click on the "Device Settings" tab of the "Mouse Properties" window. The "Device Settings" tab is at the top of the window and located farthest to the right

3. Highlight the Synaptics Touchpad from the list of available pointing devices. Click the "Disable" button underneath the list. Click "OK" on the pop-up menu to confirm your selection. Click "OK" on the Mouse Properties window to close the window. Your Synaptics Touchpad will now be disabled.

Make sure to connect a USB mouse to your laptop before disabling the touchpad so that you will still have control of your pointer.

Hope this help. Goodluck!

The zoom level on my new acer lap top keeps changing i have been in the control panel to try and stop it but to no avail its very annoying


Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Device Settings > Settings > Advanced Gestures > Pinch

(or alternatively right-click the Synaptics Pointing Device icon in your taskbar and select Pointing Device Properties)

Untick the box that says 'Enable Pinch'. This will disable the zooming.

I hope this helps, this is sooo annoying! I havent been able to do much on my acer at all because of the irratic zooming!

I can't kill the zoom feature on my Acer Laptop. It is a pain.


Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Device Settings > Settings > Advanced Gestures > Pinch

(or alternatively right-click the Synaptics Pointing Device icon in your taskbar and select Pointing Device Properties)

Untick the box that says 'Enable Pinch'. This will disable the zooming.

Additionally, you might be suffering the same problem as I was which was I had no idea how to use the zoom and that's why I wanted to lock it. Having Google stuck on too-big-to-navigate-properly or too-small-to-read for days at a time prompted me to learn. I've since decided the zoom is useful and I'm keeping the feature enabled.

Here is what Synaptics have to say about the 'pinch' gesture:
The Pinch gesture delivers zooming functionality in many applications. The Pinch gesture can be used to perform the same function as a scroll wheel on standard Windows applications that support CTRL-SCROLL WHEEL zoom functionality.

To perform a pinch gesture, place two fingers on the TouchPad surface. Move them closer together or further apart. To zoom in, place your fingers on the TouchPad surface near to each other and then slide them apart. To zoom out, begin by placing your fingers apart and then moving them closer together.

The best zooming experience results when the finger tips of the two fingers are used for the gesture.

That will hopefully be of assistance if you want to learn how to use the zoom rather than disable it. It took some practice but I can do it now without a problem so can fix windows when I accidentally zoom on them.

Inoperative touchpad scroll zone


rwertheim,
I have a MX8711.
I assume you are running Vista.

After you have updated your virus protector program and run a complete scan. You "could" be fixing it and if it is a virus problem, it is immediately reinfecting the driver. If it still doesn't work, I recommend you:

1. Rollback the driver of your touchpad. If it was working, this might do the trick. You can do this at Control Panel > Mouse > Hardware (tab) > Properties (button) > Driver (tab). If it has been updated and that caused the problem, you probably can "Roll Back" to the previous driver and that option will be highlighted.

2. If not, then your driver is probably corrupted. Go to Gateway Support and download the touchpad application file for your computer and SAVE IT TO YOU DESKTOP AND DO NOT RUN IT. Replacing only the driver usually doesn't work in these cases but try that first. Go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager > click on the (+) sign by mice and dbl click on the Symantics PS/2 Port Touchpad (or what ever yours is) > Driver (tab) > Uninstall. When you restart, it should reload the driver from the application that is still installed.

3. If that dosn't work, I recommend uninstall the application from Control Panel > Programs & Features. Restart your computer and install the application you saved on your desktop.

I hope this helps.

Have a blessed day.
