    I cant get the cursor to move at all by this method. It is frozen on the desktop. I can switch user and the cursor is fine signed on in there. I have looked for a way to access the cursor via control panel in there but it only seems to work for that user only.

    thanks

I used the tab and up and down buttons which i thought were not highlighting. Upon closer inspection i could see that that the screen was too light to see it. upon rectifying the darkness i used the tab key and up and down buttons alternatively and between them both managed to get into the 'pointer' folder. Thanks for your help. brill. Alls well now.Top marks. Cheers.

Press the Windows or Start button on your keyboard, and use TAB, or your down arrows to move to the Control Panel. Use Enter to make a choice, until you get to the cursor.

    Can you attach a mouse to the laptop? That might get your cursor moving again.

    When you say "cursor", do you mean the mouse cursor, or the typing cursor?

    If you can get a mouse working, the ultimate solution would be to uninstall the joypad via the Device Manager, reboot, and reinstall the drivers. Make sure you have the software for the pad before doing this!

Cant detect my sound card, mic doesnt work , i have e525


To determine which Windows operating system you have, go to Control Panel and click on the System Icon, it will display the Windows version.
Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP, Vista or Windows 7 version of the audio driver you require, make sure it matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

How do I change from French keyboard?


Start / Settings / Control Panel / Regional and language options, check you have the language you want in there, then remove the additional (French) language.

This assumes you're running Windows XP. Vista or Windows 7 will be similar.

Hi, I have an Acer laptop with Vista OS. Like many others, I have a prolem with the curser, jumping all over the screen, causing a lot of typing mistakes/ problems. Is there aby fix for that?


I think what is happening is the heal of your palm is touching the touchpad. Try going in to the Control panel and lowering the sensitivity.

Acer Aspire curser pad not opening programs


Regarding the touchpad (curser pad), there maybe a problem with your touch pad driver not working or starting up. Check in "msconfig" (you can click on start and run, then type msconfig to bring it up) and click on the startup tab to check which of the startup items are not working.

Also regarding the card reader, i believe the drivers are not installed. Check in Device Manager (click on start /control panel /system icon /device manager) and see what is listed under "other devices"

I cant get my mouse pad to work after turning it off in control panel. Im on windows vista and on a lap top. Curser wont work so cant go back in to turn it on again.


Hold the Alt key and press F4. Press Enter to shut down the computer.

Once it's shut down, press the POWER button on the computer's system box to turn the computer on again and reset it back to normal.

Hope this works.
