Hello, try going into control panel and under programs check the box marked mouse and pointing devices. Then click uninstall. Restart the computer and that should work after it automatically installs it again. If it doesnt try to restart the computer. You may have to do it several times. If that fails, running a program like Symantec should help, it did for me.

The touchpad on my Compaq presario cq60 is not working. Which function key unlocks the pad?


Some say that if you press the blue FN key bottom left at the same time as the F7 key just above the no 8 key that may unlock the touchpad

or try the FN+F8 key

failing that use a usb mouse and go to device manager
device manager
scroll down to touch pad
un install it and restart immediately
hopefully windows will reload it and will be ok

good luck
please let us know if you get it working ok

How can i unlock my netbook mouse pad? hp mini 210-1000

The keys for unlocking the mouse or touchpad is pressing Fn and F9.
If it does not work, try to reboot and press Fn and F9 again. If it still fails, I suggest to re install the mouse pad driver.

Hope this helps!

How to unlock a laptops mouse

i'm going to assume you are tryign to unlock the mouse pad to use it again.

on the keyboard there is an Fn key. This is called Function. then there are either gray or blue alternate pictures and words on some of your keys. along the top on the F keys you can fidn one that looks liek a picture of the mouse pad. this is usally F3 on those.

hold down the Fn key and hit the F key that has the correct picture. this will reenable the mouse pad

My mouse pad isnt working but a USB mouse is, tried to use Fn+F7 but didnt work. Any help?

Is there a function key on the laptop? (Fn usually blue ink) is there a key with the symbol that looks like mouse pad. Hold down Fn then the mouse pad key and that should enable the mouse pad.

As you have suggested the F7 key is the one for the mouse pad, and hasn't made any difference, have you somehow corrupted the drivers. You can download them from the acer website.

when did it last work, you cloud try a system restore. Remember to press Fn + F7 again and give it a moment to enable( just in case the last time you tried it, you turned the hardware off despite it's lack of functionality)

My acer extensa 4630z laptop's keyboard is not working mouse pad left and right click buttons work fine. I tried the fn f7 buttons but nothing works any ideas? The buttons worked fine yesterday.

try blowing out the dust and particles from under the keys. Are you in NumLock, if so hold the "fn" button down and press your F11or which ever F key says NumLk on it , that should unlock the keyboard. Depending on the age of the unit it is possible that it just may need replacing.
