First off, we need you to check your OS if it's 32bit or 64bit. If you already know the answer, proceed to step 5.
Now do the following:

  1. Open up the start menu from the lower left corner of your screen
  2. Do a right click on "My computer" (or just "Computer" for Vista/7)
  3. Select "Properties"
  4. Another window will pop up. Look around and you'll see a "32bit operating system" or "64bit operating system" text
  5. For a 32bit operating system, download this file. For a 64bit operating system, download this one.
  6. Open the file, install it by clicking next, next, I agree, install...
  7. Restart your computer and you should be good to go.

How do i copy and paste on acer c7 chromebook


"to copy and paste a paragraph" - I just used my c7 to copy the prior phrase from you the text in your question and to paste it into this "add your solution" answer box. Here's how I did it...... 1-I placed the cursor in front of the word "to", and while holding the touchpad down with my left finger, swiped the cursor through the phrase to the end of the word "paragraph" (thereby highlighting the desired phrase), then lifted both hands. 2- With the cursor over the end of the highlighted phrase, I used my left finger to hold down the "alt" key to the left of the touchpad the clicked the touchpad causing the drop-down copy menu to appear, then lifted both hands. 3-I then used the touchpad to move the cursor over the word "copy" in the drop-down menu and clicked the touchpad.
4-Then I placed the cursor in this "answer" text-box clicked once once. Next I held down the "alt" key to the left of the touchpad and clicked the touchpad to cause the "paste" drop-down menu to appear and raised both hands. Finally I moved the cursor over the word "paste" in the drop-down menu and clicked the touchpad, thereby successfully copying and pasting the phrase from your question. PS - an alternative to holding the left alt key and clicking to get the drop-down menu is to place two fingers on the touchpad (about a half inch apart) and click with both fingers simultaneously. The latter method only works about 75% of the time for me, so I recommend using the alt key.

Gateway the touch pad not function why?


Adjusting the touchpad sensitivity on a Gateway laptop lets you fix and prevent annoying touchpad problems.
Often the touchpad is accidentally brushed while typing, which causes the cursor to move out of place.
Or you may find yourself having to tap too hard or too often on the touchpad to open windows and programs.
These problems can be fixed by simply adjusting the touchpad's sensitivity settings.
Click the "Start" button and double-click "Control Panel."
Double-click "Hardware & Sound" and choose "Mouse" to open the mouse properties box.

Choose the "Device Settings" tab. Highlight "Synaptic Touchpad" in the Devices box by clicking on it. Click the "Settings" button underneath the Devices box.
Choose "Sensitivity" in the properties settings box.
Click "PalmCheck" to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to accidental brushes against the pad while typing, which causes the cursor to move.
Click and hold the pointer to adjust the setting on the sensitivity scale.

Click "Touch Sensitivity" to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to tapping.
Click and hold the pointer to adjust the setting on the sensitivity scale.
A higher rating on the scale means less tapping pressure will be needed.

Click "OK" to save your touchpad settings.

I'll move the cursor to one spot on the desktop and it will move itself to another....windows 7


You mean, the cursor is erratic and moving all around here and there?

Decrease the Touchpad Sensitivity...

I see that your Laptop was shipped with Windows Vista and it seems you are using a Retail version of Windows 7. Specially, HP/Compaq Laptops is designed for Retail versions and you can face some device/driver functionality issues. But, you can still try the followings.

As per my knowledge, your Laptop has the Synaptics Toucpad.

To Change the Sensitivity of the Touchpad:
1. Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize > Mouse Pointers . The Mouse Properties settings window will open.

2. Select the Device Settings tab. Select the Synaptics TouchPad device and click Settings. In the Properties for Synaptics TouchPad window, expand the Sensitivity topic.
3. Select the PalmCheck option to adjust the sensitivity (decrease it) of the touchpad to avoid erratic cursor movement caused by accidental touching of the pad during normal typing.

If the Device Setting tab is missing.....

1. Click Start, in the Start search field type Msconfig and press enter.

"System Configuration Utility" box will pop up on the screen.

2. Click the Startup tab.
3. Search for "Syntpenh" entry and select the checkbox beside it.
5. Click OK. Restart the computer. Perform above step.

If you are still not able to perform the steps, update the driver from following link.

Synaptics TouchPad Driver: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp44501-45000/sp44969.exe

Restart the Notebook and check for the problem. It should be resolved now.

Cursor on my keypad jumps around


If your cursor moves erratically on the screen (for example, if it jumps around the screen, moves at varying speeds, or selects items on its own), perform the following steps:

1. Clean the surface of the touchpad with a dry, soft cloth to remove grease, sweat, moisture, or other liquids.

2. Adjust the sensitivity of the touch pad:.

a. Click the Start button and click Control Panel.

b. Click Printers and Other Hardware.

c. Click Mouse.

d. When the Mouse Properties window appears, click the Pointer Options tab.

e. Under Select a pointer speed:, click to move the slider bar closer to Slow.

f. Click OK.

g. Check to see if the touch pad still behaves erratically.

3. If the touchpad still caused the cursor to behave erratically, attach an external mouse to your computer and restart your computer. Use the external mouse to see if your cursor still moves erratically.

4. After connecting an external mouse, uninstall the touchpad driver from the Device manager listed under the "mice and other pointing devices" category and restart the Computer.

5. Download the Touchpad driver compatible to the Operating System installed on the Computer from the manufacturer's site and install it after restarting the Computer.


Good luck!!!!!!!!!!

Cursor(pointer) cannot be moved by using touchpad but possibe wit


Hi,

This happens to me also. Check whether the touchpad is enabled (laptops do have an option of enabling / disabling the touchpad). Secondly, you can try reinstalling the touchpad driver. Uninstall and then re-install the driver. Re-boot the system. Try using the touchpad.

Hope this helps., if so, rate me.. thanks - billa
