Question about Acer TravelMate 4230-6499 Notebook

Touchpad isn't working

I started up my laptop the other afternoon and I am not able to utilize my touchpad nor the buttons around it. I have to plug in an external USB mouse in order for it to work at all.

How can I get it to work once again? I have reinstalled the driver but that didn't work. In addition, I rolled back the computer a few days via system restore.

Any suggestions?

Touchpad problem


I am going to assume the touchpad doesn't work, since you didn't elaborate much in your description. If it isn't doing anything, you need to reinstall the drivers for the touchpad. If you have an external mouse laying around, use it to go to the acer site and redownload the touchpad software and follow the instructions to install it. The next time you boot your computer, it will work.

Touchpad not funjctioning on Toshiba Satellite L40/45 laptop


You might have inadvertedly disabled the touchpad.

1. Press Fn + F9 to enable the touchpad.
This key combination acts as a switch, enabling or disabling the touchpad: press once to enable (if it is disabled), then press again to disable.

2. If the touchpad still doesn't respond, check the settings in the mouse control utility.
Click on the touchpad icon on the right side of the task bar if you see one or click Start button/Settings/Control Panel, select the Mouse icon and Press Enter.
Change the settings if necessary.

The touch pad has suddenly stopped working on my laptop so that I can not move the cursor around the screen. Have tried turing laptop on and off again.


There is probably some type of touchpad disable button on your laptop. You didn't mention the make or model of the laptop, but HP's for example, have a small button above the touchpad with a blue light. If the light is off, the touchpad is disabled.

Look around on the laptop and there is probably just a button that needs to be pressed to enable the touchpad

Synaptics touchpad not working


Have you looked at the Device Manager to see if there's a problem with the touchpad?

Start -> Control Panel -> System -> click on Hardware tab -> click on Device Manager button. Do you see anything that indicates a problem with the touchpad?

Also, you might want to check the BIOS to see that the touchpad is still enabled. I doubt that this setting would have changed, but it's worth checking. When you boot the computer you should see a message that says something like: "To enter setup press XXX" where XXX is the delete key or some other key. Once you're in the BIOS poke around to see if you can find the settings for the Touchpad. Different manufacturers use different BIOS' so I cannot tell you exactly where to look.

Good luck.
