SOURCE: TouchPad not working

if not a software problem then check the hardware...because you restored already the OS right?..it means,the same problem..did you installed the touchapd driver,hotkey or any application driver...if yes...means not a driver problem...it is problem with the cable in touchpad between the board connection...if you try before to open some laptop specially that model,you open and check the cable that link touchpad and mainboard....because i had same problem before..check and try...but focus first in touchpad driver,check some settings,if you cant do nothing, open and check the cable...

MY TOUCHPAD SCROLL IS NOT WORKING?HOW CAN I FIXED IT?


Did it work yesterday? Try rolling-back/updating the driver. Do a System Restore to a date when it worked, take note of the Touchpad driver in Device Manager. Take a Look at the touchpad software settings, adjust. Take a look here for drivers: http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

My acer laptop 5742G not working scorlling


Check the touchpad driver in device manager: control panel>hardware and sound>device manager. Look for; mice and other pointing devices and expand the menu. You should see the touchpad driver here (synaptics or elantech) right click on it and click properties and check that its working properly in the general tab. On the drivers tab, click update driver and search automatically for updated software. If the driver is not installed or has become corrupted, you can follow this link to download and install a new driver: http://support.acer.com/product/default.aspx?modelId=3278

I've just bought a new Acer Aspire 5742Z and the smart pad has suddenly stopped working. Any idea whether it's likely to be a hardware or software issue and how to fix it? I've tried...


Hi jennylewry...


To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...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.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time 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.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
D. Sony Vaio Users: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Double click the Mouse icon.
Look at the top left hand side of the page, at the top and make sure that the "Tapping" box is unchecked, if it is checked then, you will uncheck it.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

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
