Hi g_friend_k!

When you re-installed the operating system you might also lost the drivers that the PC had installed previously. To re-install them either use the set-up CD that came with your PC or look for the drivers online.

Hope this helped you!

What is multi gesture


do you mean multi-touch? It means that the device (touchpad or touch screen) can sense multiple fingers simultaneously.
gestures are specific patterns that perform tasks (like 2 finger scroll, pinch to zoom).

I am quite sure your trackpad supports multi-touch. If they arent enabled you can change the settings.For windows, go to - control panel> mouse>device settings tab> settings. (this might slightly change depending on the driver you have.)

Acer mouse disassemble ???


The Acer Aspire is a laptop model that has a built-in "mouse pad," also called a "touchpad." The user runs his or her finger across the mouse panel to move the cursor. If your mouse pad no longer responds to your touch, it may be due to a build-up of dirt and grease. Another common problem is having an outdated or damaged mouse pad driver. These problems can be quickly resolved without having to take apart the laptop.


Hold down the "Fn" key, which is found at the bottom left corner of the keyboard. Press the "F7" key once while holding the "Fn" key. Look for a message that says "touchpad enabled." b> Update the Drivers Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "System and Maintenance" > "Device Manager." Double-click on "Mice and other pointing devices" to expand the options. Right-click "Synaptics Touchpad" and then click "Search automatically for updated driver software." Wait for the computer to scan and install new drivers. Restart your laptop.

Cursor gets stuck


make sure you are not touching more than one finger two you touch pad. You can disable multi touch gestures from the system preferences pane.

And also insure that your trackpad is clean as sometimes that will prevent the pad from detecting you pressure.

Acer Aspire 5738 laptop Finger not working on VISTA


It is Better do this : Instead of Updating the drivers, roll back the driver first and unintall the Hardware Totally from your system through the device manager. Next, restart your system, and then it prompts for 'New Hardware Found', use the Finger Printer Driver That you have, to re-install it afresh, if you dont have you can download it from here :

After that, restart your system again. It should work like that now.
