    Was working fine before today then just quit! tried everything including booting into safe mode and attempted uninstall of drivers and restart(didn't uninstall something odd there). 'Bout out of things to do even took the bottom cover off and the touchpad is on the other side of the motherboard, don't want to mess with and tear it up worse, other than there is something wrong with the hardware any suggestions?.

Some touch pads can be disabled to prevent the touchpad from responding while typing.
It would still show in properties etc..
Check to see if you have a Fn key and on the Fbutton row a small picture of a mouse. Press Fn + that button to toggle it on or off.
Perhaps there is a physical button or switch (HP laptops are this way).

I can't get my Acer 5534 touchpad to scroll up or down. I can move the arrow, but when I go to scroll up or down it wont move and I get a small dark circle under the arrow. It has done it before but...


go to control panel and open mouse option, from here selct the "touchpad" tab,now you should see a line that display the name of the your hardware ( the touchpad name) and below there is a button named "advance configuration" or simply "configuration" or "setting" ecc. Push it.

From the new windows you can control a very large number of options ,not only you can activate scroll in two direction ,but you can also decide the dimension of the touched area interested in the action.

My touchpad is not working on my acer aspire 5315 my cat walked over keyboerd when i was using it and curser has gone what can i do


Hi there,
Your Touchpad is disabled, thats why its not working, to enable again, simply press Fn+F7 Key, you will see a small blue icon on F7 key, with a finger pointing, its basically a short cut for enabling/disabling Touchpad,
If it doesnt works, restart your laptop once, and restore the BIOS settings to default, save the settings and reboot laptop, and it should be working again,
Feel free to reply to this post if you require more assistance,
Regards-BA

My acer 5534 touchpad is not working... HELP!!!!!


There are three buttons near the right internal laptop speaker. The button directly to the right is the dvd drive eject button. One of the ones to the left which has the satellite icon will enable/disable the wifi receiver. The other one with the hand icon (which is the one you're looking for) will enable/disable the touchpad. If you press it, you should see a message printed in all caps in green saying that the touchpad is either enabled or disabled.

Cursor continually jumps all over when trying to type


Touch pad mouse.
This unit has a "seamless touchpad with four-way integrated scroll button".
Yours is probably faulty, causing the cursor to be random.
Try disabling it and connecting a USB mouse.

Try and attach a USB mouse. Then uninstall the driver. restart your computer and reinstall the driver. Also clean with some spray to make sure there is no dirt which is causing the problem.

Cursor is frozen and can;t move on my laptop


Plug in a USB mouse, and go to Contol Panel>system>device manager and click on the +sign next to pointing devices. Right click touchpad and uninstall the touchpad, then reboot the computer, remove the usb mouse. Windows will pick up the touchpad as new hardware and re-install the drivers for it etc..

I hope this helps
