Some computer's include a lock button on the laptop for example on an Hp Pavillion the lock button is in the middle top part of the touch pad. Please tell me what software you are using (Windows 7, Vista, or Xp) and what model of the Acer you are using, or go into your control panel and look under printers and hardware for a touch pad tab and see if you accidentally locked it there. Or a wire has come loose in the laptop and you may need to buy a new Touch pad for your.
that is not new, its a refurb. and old
the DV2-1000 (was introduced with windows 2000)
the most were sold in 2009 with Window VISTA. (yours?)
makes sure you have an internet connection first.
then use real mouse, plugged in to any USB port.
get that mouse working first. then..
the touch pad, the virtual mouse pad in the center is dead.
that means (can be of of many) the driver of the pad is missing
If running VISTA , go to control panel. click device manager.
then click on the pointing device. and right click it and pick update driver.
if it still working this fixes it.
for sure there are other causes, computers are a bet complex.
like virus infection
the touch pad cable inside fell off
or OS corruption, Vista corrupted by some means.. (many)like hard disk failure or failing RAM.
Try contacting hp through their live chat and aqsk them how to reinstall the mousepad driver. if they cant help try restoring your computer to a date before the problem started or reset the operating system.
