In the bottom left of your screen by the clock there should be an icon that says touch pad device, synaptics touch, or something along those lines. If you click on this it will give you different options for the touch pad and one of them is tap to click, make sure this is turned on.

I HAVE BLOCKED MY CURSOR ON ACER LAPTOP BY MISTAKE


When your mouse pad is not functioning, it's hard to get most anything done on your computer. The fortunate side to all this is that getting a mouse pad to work again on a laptop is not an overly complex procedure. A few troubleshooting techniques will quickly lead you on your way to productivity again.

Examine your mouse pad. Dirt and grime can affect performance and slow down mouse sensitivity, if not shut it down altogether. Make sure the surface of the track pad is clean and that there is nothing that has managed to get beneath it or around any trackball buttons that could affect the pressing and depressing of the component. Check to see if your mouse pad has been turned off. If the Fn (Function) button at the bottom left of the keyboard is pressed in conjunction with some other key on the keyboard it can result in the disabling of the mouse pad. To enable your mouse pad on a Windows PC go to the Control Menu. Under the Printers and Other Hardware option, click on Mouse. Then, click on the tab on the top of the pop-up menu that says Device Settings. The touch pad for your computer should come up as a selectable option. Click on it and you will see the option to enable your device, then click OK. If this does not work, proceed to the next Step . Check the manufacturer of your laptop (for example, Toshiba) and then navigate to their official website. Find an area for Software and Drivers, and move on to that area. Enter your laptop number (check your documentation/manuals and/or the bottom of the computer) and look through the drivers that are presented as a result of this number input. It could be that your mouse pad simply needs updated drivers. Find the driver that corresponds to your computer and mouse pad (for example, most Acer laptops use a Synaptics touch pad). Then, click on download. Once the drivers have downloaded, double click them to ensure they install, restart your laptop, and your mouse pad should be working again. Hope this helps.

Unlock cursor for acer laptop


Your laptop comes with a touch pad that acts as a mouse. Instead of connecting a mouse each time you want to use your laptop, you can use the touch pad that is integrated underneath the keyboard. This comes in handy when you are in a tight spot such as in a classroom or on an airplane. At times, you may need to unlock the laptop touch pad because someone who borrowed your laptop disabled it. It may also be locked due to a slight malfunction that you can easily fix by enabling the touch pad in your computer settings.
Click the Windows "Start" button in the bottom-left corner of your desktop. Scroll up and click "Control Panel." Choose the "Mouse" icon or type "Mouse" in the field in the upper-right corner. Click the "Enter" button and then click the "Mouse" link. Press the "Hardware" tab or the tab to the right of it that specifies the type of touch pad you have. If you are under the "Hardware" tab, highlight the touch pad in the list of devices and click the "Enable" button. If you are under the touch pad tab, click the enable button. Click the "Apply" button and then click the "OK" button. Hope this helps.

Acer aspire 5520 mouse pointer problem it freezes or moves around the screen by itself


Glad to HELP YOU!

First of all try to clean your touch pad with a SOFT CLOTH gently soaked in a GLASS CLEANER fluid. Make that as good as you can and you will remove all the dirst that may occur during the function of your computer, generating "fake movements" of the cursor.
Second: go to
START > CONTROL PANEL > MOUSE icon > DEVICE SETTINGS
and disable touch pad or check box to hide cursor while you are typing.

GOOD LUCK!

How do I disable touch pad when using a mouse? ASUS K50IJ Win7 64 bit


To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Alternatively, you can permanently disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. Advanced users can disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 when the computer is booting to enter BIOS settings]

Unfortunately, there are no keyboard shortcuts to enable/disable Touchpad movement or tapping. You can however drag the Mouse icon from the control panel to your Quick launch bar for quick access.

If that sounds too much effort, you may consider adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad. This can be accessed from the Touch Pad tab of our mouse properties. Choose a low setting.

Mouse keeps shifting the cursor to a different place in document


On touchpads if you touch the pad twice in quick succession it acts as a click and the cursor will move to the mouse pointer location. In mouse settings disable "tapping"
