Simply reinstall the touchpad drivers, either direct from Acer website, or from the backup drivers that cam with the laptop, then reboot and you should be all good. Below is the link for your user manual. Copy/paste to address bar.

Acer 5532 Touch Pad Not Working


Here are a couple of ideas from a Google Search:

Press the key to the left of the On/Off button. The key has a picture of a finger pressing the touchpad. So simple, so elegant, so little information out there about it.

Aspire 5532: touchpad no longer works, machine works fine using mouse plugged into USB. What can I do to make the touchpad work again?


Hello Egor,

This model has a touchpad lock. May you inadvertedly locked the touchpad.

Anyway, it's so easy to unlock it. Simply press the 'finger' button which is found on the left of the power button and that should make it work again.

Acer Aspire 5532 touchpad wont work at all. I had to use a usb mouse to be able to get online.


I just fixed this problem...the fn & f7 didnt work... at the top of computer where you turn the machine off and on - there is a button to the left. Press this button [not the on/off btn] and it should work.

The touchpad lock button on the aspire 5532 is just to the left of the power button (the one with the hand logo). worst placement ever, i accidentally hit it all the time.

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!
