    did you try to press F8 when after ACER logo disappear and choose to start from last known good configuration, or in safe mode? when you talk about restoring into factory settings - do you mean the OS is restored from restore disk (in other words new windows settings)? If it doesn't work even after this...then it has to be very strange if you are able to write from keyboard when you are not in your OS. I would bet it should be OS problem.

Acer mouse disassemble ???


The Acer Aspire is a laptop model that has a built-in "mouse pad," also called a "touchpad." The user runs his or her finger across the mouse panel to move the cursor. If your mouse pad no longer responds to your touch, it may be due to a build-up of dirt and grease. Another common problem is having an outdated or damaged mouse pad driver. These problems can be quickly resolved without having to take apart the laptop.


Hold down the "Fn" key, which is found at the bottom left corner of the keyboard. Press the "F7" key once while holding the "Fn" key. Look for a message that says "touchpad enabled." b> Update the Drivers Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "System and Maintenance" > "Device Manager." Double-click on "Mice and other pointing devices" to expand the options. Right-click "Synaptics Touchpad" and then click "Search automatically for updated driver software." Wait for the computer to scan and install new drivers. Restart your laptop.

How to Fix Touchpad on a Laptop


<p><span>The touchpad of your laptop is a most important and frequently used input device. If your touchpad stops functioning, it may be difficult for you to use your laptop. Touchpad normally faces following issues. <br /><br /><b>Laptop Problems and Their Solutions</b><br /><br /><b>Problems with the driver</b><br /><br />Computer hardware communicates with your computer through real time software called driver. Drivers control computer hardware. It is possible that virus or human activity may damage the driver. You can check your driver's status through computer's device manager. You'll see a yellow color indication under "Mouse and other pointing devices" heading. You can download new driver form your laptop's manufacturer website. <br /><br /><b>Problems with connection</b><br /><br />Touchpad's connection with motherboard is delicate. It can be broken due to heating and other inner problems. So, if there is no problem with the driver, then the connection of the touchpad to the motherboard may have broken. <br /><br /><b>Misuse</b><br /><br />Touchpad of the laptop is the most delicate input device. Some people tap on it too hard or use a shrill tool as an alternative of a finger. This can damage the pad. <br /><br /><b>Fn Keys</b><br /><br />Touchpad driver is slightly different from the other devices that need drivers to function properly. It came with an operating system that you don't need to re-install it. Laptop keyboard comes with many functions than the common keyboard. It has Fn keys which are called function keys. Sometimes, your laptop's touchpad stops working because you accidentally hit some one of the Fn keys. You can follow these instructions to make your laptop touchpad working again. <br /><br />1- Search for Fn key on your laptop keyboard. It is commonly located next to the Ctrl key. <br />2- Now search for F1 to F12 keys on the laptop keyboard. These keys control sound, brightness of the screen, wifi etc. They are located on top of the keyboard. Look for the key which has icon on it that looks similar to the touchpad. <br />3- Let's take an example of Toshiba laptop. It uses F10 key to enable or disable touch-pad. Hold down Fn key along with F10 key to enable the laptop touch-pad. <br /><br /><b>Cleaning the laptop touch-pad</b><br /><br />It is a good practice to clean your laptop touchpad. To clean it, take a cloth dampened with sprit. Wipe your touchpad off with that cloth. <br />Laptop touchpad work best in moderate temperature and gasping environment. Moisture, excessive heat, can damage it. Try using your laptop with tidy hands. Sweaty and dirty hands can cause problems. <br /><br /></span><span><span> </span></span><br /><span><br /> </span>

I turned off my touch pad to my acer aspire 5733z and it wont turn bk on


Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.


Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.


The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.


Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.


Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.

Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.


hope this helps

My touch pad on my hp ProBook4520s is shut off and i dont know how to turn it back on


You will probably have to connect a mouse to get there. Go to start -> control panel -> find the mouse/touch pad link (location may vary depending on your operating system). Within there you will find an option to configure your touch pad. If it is showing that it should work, then there is one of two problems. 1. You have a very nasty virus and should run some anti-malware and anti-virus programs. or 2. Your touch pad no longer works and you'll just have to use the mouse until you get a new laptop (the amount of money you'd have to spend to replace the touch pad is nearly the same price as getting a new laptop) If this post was helpful to you, please rate it. Best of luck to you!

My scroll pad is not working help me?


Well I will try my best to help you with the little bit of information you have given. There are several things that might have caused this issue. It could be a software issue(new program installed or a windows update), driver issue(update or malfunction), touchpad settings were changed(scroll function disabled) or the scroll part of your touchpad is inop due defective parts.

The first thing I suggest is checking the touchpad settings. These settings can be usally found by double left clicking on the toupad icon found in the lower right hand corner of your taskbar(by clock). You may need to expand your icons to see it. That should take you to the mouse/touchpad properties where you can make adjustments to your touchpad and scrollpad. If you cannot find the icon then you can use the control panel and then pick the keyboard/mouse settings. If the scroll is not disable and all the settings appear correct then comes the next step.

Next go into the control panel and select hardware and then the device manager. Once you are in the device manager you will need to locate the mouse tab and expand it. Then right click on the mouse device and select uninstall device. Once you do this your touchpad will stop working and this is expected. You will then need to re-boot your laptop. So you will need to press "ctrl" "alt" and "del" all at the same time. That will bring up the task manager where you can use the tab key to highlight restart and then hit enter to restart the computer. If that does not work hit control, alt and delete a second time and the computer should shut down. Now re-start or wait for the computer to re-start. Windows will recognize the touchpad and should re-install the drivers automatically. Hopefully your scrollpad starts working again. If not on to the next step.

The last thing to try is using system restore. System restore allows you to return your computer to a state it was before the scrollpad stopped working. You can find system restore in the control panel. It's location is different for each version of windows. So the best thing to do is go to help and support and do a search for "system restore". Then you can find where to go to start it. You will want to pick a date that was just before the scroll pad stopped working. Once you choose a date the computer will be restored back to that date. Any software that you have installed after that date will be gone. Files,pictures and anything that existed before that date will still be there. Once this is done check to see if you scrollpad is working. If it is then you may have installed a program or there was an update that disabled it. Be aware if that program or software is installed again the same problem could happen. If it does not work after trying these things then I would say that the scroll pad itself is defective. Replacing the scroll pad is not an easy task and the parts would cost more than it is worth. I suggest getting a usb mouse with a scroll function to use with your laptop if this is the case. They are pretty cheap and simple to install...just plug it in.

I hope that I have helped you with your problem and thanks for using FixYa.

Acer aspire touchpad over sensitive


Hi,
Your laptop should have software pre-installed for your touchpad. This should probably be in the Control Panel. Once you find the software there should be options to change the sensitivity. Hope I helped.

Laptop Hangs during voice chat.


I’m going to ask you some questions in order to better determine the solution.
Do you have Yahoo IM 8.1 installed which is compatible with Vista (this will also apply to the other software like G-talk, and Skype)?
When you have your software running (Yahoo, G-Talk, Skupe, etc) how much RAM is being used? CRTL-ALT-DEL to Task Manager and Performance Tab, then under PF Usage, tell me how much MB are you using?
Do you get this ‘hang’ with other software?
How many ICONS are in the right-hand corner of the tool-bar?
