    The thing is that my problem is fixed,
    it was more of hardware problem, the tea got dry inside the laptop causing short cuircuit in the contacts inside especially the touchpad, once got cleaned by my roommate, a master electronics engineer, now its working perfect, I do appreciate your help and support and keep up the good work and also for trying to help.

Have you downloaded and installed the latest glide pad drivers from Dell?

Upon starting your laptop I would enter the bios setup screens and navigate the startup screens using Alt+P to find the pointer settings and set your or check that yours is using Glide Pad only, If you so choose to use an external USB travel mouse, this setting must be changed to Serial only.

Once, you download and install the latest drivers for the Glide Pad, and by the way, the Glide Pad on the D600 series is its only weak link in an otherwise best in class laptop.

To access the sensitivity settings for your Glide Pad after installing the new driver or in your case this may be reinstalling (I have to do this way to often) open Mouse within Control Panel and the last Tab is your Glide Pad. Here you can change a lot of the property values for things like sensitivity and double tap scrolling etc. Your mention of the mouse traveling up and to the right in most case is normal for this laptop.

Here is the link for the Glide Pad driver update. If this link has expired, here is the permanent location. Just click on the download button on this page. Download and move to a unique folder as the file name won't be of help. Move to something like c:\software\Dell\Glide Pad\

The battery is fully charged, and the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, when i push the on button the laptop will not start


Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

How to enable bluetooth


Your computer has to have a bluetooth radio. You can check
Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager
Do you see a Bluetooth Radio listed?

If not, you don't have BlueTooth on your computer so you will have to add a BlueTooth device by plugging one into a USB port.

If you have a BlueTooth radio, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device and Printers > Add a Bluetooth Device

This option is used to connect a blue tooth device (e.g. bluetooth headphons) to your laptop through your bluetooth radio.

See this Windows web page for more information.
Set up Bluetooth enabled device

I will respond to any additional questions you have.

How do I get the battery out of my acer laptop


Your Model of Aspire has a different battery release method, see attached pic on how to do it. This is a pic from your User Manual, you can download it from here Download Acer Aspire E1 572

. I suspect that the information you have been given regarding battery removal and passwords refers to removing the cmos battery as in a PC in the hope that it will clear Bios activated passwords.

Bluetooth & sound


Generally, connecting phones via bluetooth to a laptop just allows for file transfer between the two devices. It is not to input sound from the phone through the speakers of the laptop. You would need a bluetooth audio device for that such as bluetooth speakers or headphones

Button keeps blinking


It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service

Try the following: Using your FN key and the F7 Key together it might work again. You could have toggled the touchpad off. If that does not work you have issues with either the touchpad or the operating system. Best of Luck.
