Attach a USB mouse to the laptop for ease of navigation, then, after noting the exact model number of your laptop, go to Acer Support (http://www.acersupport.com/notebook/html/downloads.html), enter your model number and navigate to the proper driver download for your laptop's touchpad. Download, install.

Please report back if this did or did not solve your problem.

Mouse didn't detected


Touch pad usb or wireless mouse ?
Laptops use the convenient touchpad and integrated scroll mouse that allow you to use just your finger to navigate Web pages, documents and open files and programs. Just like all other hardware, the laptop's integrated touchpad and mouse can experience errors and problems that cause you to lose functionality for a length of time. Whether the laptop's mouse is not working because of internal errors or conflicts with another device, several "tricks" can work to restore it.

Locate the function "Fn" button on your laptop in the lower left corner of the keyboard. Look in the keyboard's upper row (the F1 through F12 buttons) for an icon of a touchpad or computer mouse. This keyboard button acts as the toggle switch to enable and disable the built-in mouse and touchpad function. Press and hold the "Fn" button together with the mouse icon button. Look for the disable/enable symbol that briefly displays on your screen. Slide your finger over the laptop's mouse and attempt to use it as normal. Press the Windows keyboard key if using Windows 7, type "main.cpl" in the search box and press "Enter." Press the left arrow key to navigate over to the "Device Settings" tab. Press the tab key to reach the "Enable" button in this section. Press "Enter" on your keyboard. Press the tab key to reach the "Disable internal pointing device" check box. Press the space bar to remove the check mark. Put your finger on the touchpad, and move the pointer down to the "Apply" button. Click "Apply" to save the settings. Close the mouse "Properties" box. Press the keyboard "Windows" logo key to open the "Start Menu." Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer" menu. Press the up or down arrow key to highlight "Restart." Press "Enter" to restart your computer and attempt to use the laptop mouse as it should normally function. Open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Add and Remove" or "Uninstall" programs section. Highlight any secondary mouse devices in the list that you have installed for your laptop, such as an external USB mouse. Select the "Uninstall" option to remove any software and settings associated with this secondary mouse. Restart your computer and attempt to use the built-in laptop mouse as normal. Check to see if the mouse is working properly. Press the keyboard's "Windows" button to open the "Start Menu." Press the keyboard's arrow keys, "Enter" button and "Tab" to navigate to and open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Hardware and Sound" section, and press "Enter." Navigate to "Device Manager," and press "Enter" to open it. Find "Mice and other pointing devices from the list" and open its "Properties" dialog box. Select the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver." Allow Windows to search the Internet for drivers and to update them automatically. Restart your computer after the drivers are updated, and use your mouse as normal.

I have an acer aspire using xp. cursor is frozen in the center of screen. Pad doesnt work. Reset but didn't change anything. Did fn-f7 didn't change anything. I can only get around using my tab key...


Plug in a USB mouse to give you some mouse functionality. Then go HERE (http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers) and search for your specific laptop model and try to see if they have a touchpad driver for your model.


Also you can go to the device manager in Windows (Right Click my computer and choose Manage)
find the touchpad driver in the list, right click and uninstall. Then reboot your computer and have Windows reinstall using plug and play (it will do this automatically)

Good Luck.

My touchpad is not working for click(touch) operation. I feel that this started happening after plug in a USB mouse


When you plug in a USB mouse, the touchpad is usually automatically disabled. Look in your control panel under Mouse or Pointing devices. You will want to look at the settings to ensure that your touchpad turns back on after you unplug the mouse. If your touchpad is NOT returning to normal functionality after you unplug the mouse, try the "safely remove hardware" option (If you have windows). Look in the lower right corner of your screen. If you have a small green arrow icon that safes "safely remove hardware" when you put the mouse pointer over it, click on it. If the mouse shows up in the list, highlight it, and click Stop. You can then remove the mouse when Windows tells you it's safe to do so. This may then return full functionality of the touchpad. In some cases, the mousepad click functionality will be disabled if a USB mouse is plugged in. It can remain so if the system doesn't fully acknowledge that the mouse has been removed. That's why I'm suggesting to try the "Safely Remove Hardware" option first. If that doesn't work, there may be a physical problem with your touchpad and it will need to be serviced.

My acer notebook right click wont work. can you fix it? thanks


Re-installed your Touchpad driver.By default,it shoud work otherwise use an external USB mouse and check your Right-Click. If it work then the notebook Right Click Touchpad mouse has some faulty.

I think you won't be able to find spare in any sites even Manufacturer sites,you have to carry on with an external USB Mouse.

Touchpad not working


Using your keyboard, press the windows hot key, then use the arrow keys to go up and to the right to control panel, then arrow over to the system icon, then arrow through the tabs to the hardware tab, then press TAB to select the "device manager" button and click enter....in the device manager, press tab again in order to highlight the first selection and arrow down to "mouse and other pointing devices" then press the right arrow key to expand that selection and see if it is recognizing your mouse pad, if it does, highlight it and press enter, arrow over to the "driver" tab and try updating the driver, if that doesn't work, try a troubleshoot from the first properties tab.....and if none of this works......the touchpad is most likely dead. Try contacting the manufacturer and see if they can replace the touch pad.....
