Question about Acer Computers & Internet

My Acer Aspire suddenly won't let me work on it EXCEPT with a mouse! Can't use the touch pad -- either the cursor is locked up OR it isn't even visable when I try to use the touch pad. HELP!

Check the switch on the touchpad (ususally a button on the touchpad) to make sure the pad is switched to ON.
If the switch is ON, check the status of the touchpad by going to START>ControlPanel>System>DeviceManager>Mice and other pointing devices
Click on the touchpad and make sure the Device status is "the device is working properly"
If everything checks out, you may have to reload the driver.
Let me know what you find out and we can go from there. Thanks.

Connect an external USB mouse to get at least the cursor to work, then download the latest touch pad drivers from Acer's site

Check that you have not disabled the mouse pad (FN and F7?)

If that fails, you may need to dismantle the laptop and check the small ribbon cable that connects the touch pad to the motherboard has not come adrift.

After that it looks like physical failure of the trackpad / touch pad assembly

What is the internal touch pad?


internal touch pad is the touch pad where you put your finger to roll over your cursor instead of using an external mouse. External touch pad is also called external mouse.

FROZEN CURSOR


Sounds like the touch pad is not working anymore. try using a USB mouse and see if that works. also, see if you can reinstall the touch pad software to fix that.

How do you fix a frozen mouse for a acer aspire 5315-2077 laptop?


Fn F7 probably got pressed (turns on and off the trackpad. probably the dumbest thing to have a hotkey for)

I don't know if you mean that your cursor suddenly moves as you are typing? If so, it is likely your touch pad is too sensitive. I have a mouse w/mouse pad but never disabled the touch pad. So i disabled the touch pad and it solved it for me. If you want to be sure it is the touch pad being over sensitive, then type a paragraph but keep your fingers and palms far away from the touch pad. If the problem improves, like it did for me, then the touchpad is too sensitive. You can go into the settings for the touchpad to change the sensitivity setting to make it less senstive and see if that works and it does not then press Fn +F7 keys to disable the touchpad.
