It sounds like the pad is intermittent or the ribbon from the pad to the motherboard needs to be reseated back in position in the plug on the motherboard.

The mouse won't move


If it's the touchpad mouse - you may have disabled it by accident. For Acers, try hitting the Fn key and F7 at the same time.
If that doesn't work, you may need to connect a usb mouse and re-enable the touchpad. That should be in Control Panel -> Mouse -> Hardware.

Mouse pad not working


Examine your "Function"/"F" keys and look for a touchpad icon. If you find one, hold the "Fn" key and press the touchpad icon button to unlock the touchpad. Move on to Step 2 if your laptop doesn't support this feature. Plug a USB mouse into an open port on your laptop. Click the Windows "Start" button. Click "Control Panel" in Windows XP and double-click "Device Manager." Type "Device" in the search box in Vista and Windows 7 and click "Device Manager" from the results. Click "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the touchpad and select "Enable." Your touchpad is now unlocked. Hope this helps.

Just bought the netbook and the mouse pad isnt working any solutions before I return the thing?


Pretty much only one thing to try or check and that is if the touchpad has been shut off. I believe the keys used are FN and F9. Press and hold down the FN key and then press the F9. That should switch it back on. If not you can use a usb mouse and then look under control panel device/hardware manager and under mouse it should show the touchpad. as well as the usb mouse. If it shows it and it is not disabled then I'd say you definitely have a hardware problem.

If it won't work after checking then take it back. It really is never worth trying to make do with something new under warranty.

Acer aspire one netbook touchpad wouldnt work could only use with left click - trying to fix managed to disable touchpad by mistake now curser wont work how can i enablei it when cant use curset? please


If possible try to connect a USB mouse and use that to enable the touchpad...
After that reinstall the drivers for the touchpad the issue should be fixed... Even if you still have the issue then call the computer manufacturer.

If you dont get a USB mouse.. Then turn on the computer get into safe modem by tapping F8... Try to check in safe mode whether the touchpad is working.. If its working reinstall the drivers the issue will be fixed
