Acer Travelmate 8210 touchpad problem

Even after sending back for repair and needlessly reformatting, my 8210 has a touchpad that sometimes sends pointer jumping down about 3 inches. One can't scroll down on the right scroll bar without finding yourself looking at the time/date window popping up.
It also doesn't wake up very well from hibernation. The screen stays so dark it's hard to find the mouse.

    I keep all my virus protection up to date, daily. The Acer factory authorized techs had me format the hard drive and they set my laptop back to default when they sent it back to me with the same problems present upon return. They say I don't have a problem. I bet it's indemic in all these units and I'm looking for others to back me up on this.

    My old Toshiba had a bad display that they wouldn't admit until they lost the class-action lawsuit. I don't trust Acer.

My 8210 has given me endless trouble and I just cut my finger trying to open it up!

In addition to the touchpad problem, mine has a serious issue with overheating and a strange problem where the screen flashes black intermittently for no apparent reason.

Have you ran any spyware scans or antivirus scans? Check my (site) for this software. The Adaware 2007 is 2008 Link not 2007. Check the words files at the bottom of the page. I hope this helps. Spyware can do crazy things.

My acer travelmate 4100 will not power up when I switch on. The green power button is lit but the screen is blank and and there is none of the normal "booting up" noises it's just silence :-( I have tried...


hi michelle, first check to see if you can even get to your BIOS. if that is not posible then you might have either a power supply or motherboard issue. for either one of those you will need to send for repair.

My right click button on my touchpad responds sometimes. It is sporadic. It is a Acer Travelmate 2480 notebook. Any suggestions? Where is a reliable place to get a new touchpad etc. Thanks


Hi,

This could be as simple as dirt, crumbs or hair etc that is basically stuck under the right click button.

Turn the laptop on it's side and get a clean, dry paintbrush. Gently tap around the touchpad area with the back of the brush to dislodge any foreign objects that maybe stuck under the button. Then use the bristle end to clean around and under the buttons.

Hopefully this should resolve the problem for you.

If not then you will be able to get a replacement touchpad for your laptop from websites like eBay for example. All you have to do is search for the touchpad by the laptop model number and are fairly cheap to purchase.

Regards.

During bios boot up (Laptop starting) press ALT + F10. This should send you to the factory reset/format setting.
Warning; You will lose all your data, so back up pics, docs etc

Acer travelmate 2413lm touchpad not working after reinstall


It can be possible if you don't install the correct motherboard drivers in your system, but if you have install the correct Drivers by using your product Service tag No. or Product key No. then it is a Hardware connectivity problem and you have to take it to a hardware repaire shop.
