his MIGHT work:

1. Click "Start," "Turn Off Computer" and then "Restart", if it is on. If your computer is off, turn it on by pressing the power button above the keyboard.
2. Press the "F2" function key on your computer's keyboard to enter the BIOS utility.
3. Use the laptop's right arrow key to scroll to "Main." Confirm that the "D2D Recovery" is "Enabled." If the D2D option is "Disabled," scroll down to the option using the down arrow key. Press "Enter" to change the option to "Enabled."
4. Use the laptop's right arrow key to scroll to "Exit." The "Exit Saving Changes" option will be highlighted. Press "Enter" to save the settings and exit the BIOS utility. Your Acer Aspire will restart.

This usually works for most device problems. Go to the device manager and scroll down to the mice and pointing devices as well as the keyboard. If the keyboard and the touchpad are listed in the device menu, then you can right click on the device and click on update driver. Windows will search update for a fresh driver. If the devices are not listed, then go to Acer support (link below) put in the model of the laptop....Aspire > 1640Z and a list of downloads will come up. Download the drivers for the keyboard and /or touchpad. After they are downloaded, run the apps, they usually self install.

If they are listed in the device manager (device manager is in the control panel....in XP, look in the system flder under the hardware tab.) and the above fix does not work, then scroll down to them and when you right click, Hit un-install, but keep the drivers. Do this one at a time and let the system reboot after each uninstall. Windows will detect the device and load the driver for it.
